The artist formerly known as Hot Toddy returns for his first Homegrown appearance since 2008. After a five-year stint on the Los Angeles music scene, Todd Eckart is back in his hometown with his old-time beat. At Homegrown he’ll be backed by members of the Fractals — Jimi Cooper, Darryn Wallace and Marvin Pomeroy. His country twang and rockabilly influence fit right in at such venues as the Powerhouse Bar, Spurs on First, Players Sports Bar, Third Base Bar, T-Bonz and the like, where he’s been playing frequently since he moved back to town in October.
