The thing I enjoy most about making music is that there are so many styles & genres to play with, and each one is like a world unto itself. So instead of just focusing on one style, I pursued as many as I could, and created a different band/ensemble to highlight each one. That's why there are so many groups featured on our Music page- each has it's own function, and each gives me an opportunity to perform the music I love. Besides performing as leader, I also thrive as a freelance trumpet player, arranger, composer, and musical contractor.
Originally a trumpet player, I now perform on trumpet, percussion/cajon, vocals, ukelele and occasional others.
I believe that sustainable living is one of the most important issues our world faces today. We are currently working to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible in all aspects of our business and performance practices. Additionally, we donate 5% of our monthly profits to a non-profit working to fight climate change or to protect or clean-up the environment.
So far, all donations have gone to
The Ocean Cleanup project. Big problems, like plastic in our waterways, require big solutions like theirs.
Each year, our Fulginiti Family Band performs and releases a holiday single to raise funds for a local charity. To date, we have raised about $2500 for 3 different organizations.
For those in need of a more formal biographical statement:
Todd has earned praise for his work in a wide variety of styles including jazz, rock/funk, classical, theater and many others. In addition to performing with the groups featured at www.toddfulginiti.com, Todd is a freelance artist performing with dozens of groups and as a soloist. Career highlights include "single night" engagements with Ray Charles, Frankie Valli, and Maceo Parker. As a recording artist, Todd has contributed to over a dozen projects both with his own bands and as a guest artist. Across the airwaves and on stages, Todd's arrangements and compositions continue to be performed around the country and internationally by both professional and student groups. As a recently retired public school teacher, Todd spent 25 years teaching elementary general music class and chorus. He resides in Lititz, Pa with his wife. Outside of music, Todd writes a blog at www.fiveoclockshadow.life, is training for a marathon, and is a big Philadelphia Eagles fan.
I've enjoyed playing on several recording projects both as a freelancer and with my own groups. Most can be found on YouTube, Spotify and other streaming sources.
