I perform solo and with The Uncle Brothers (with Danny Quinn or Jeff Silna). We've been in thousands of elementary school, libraries, and camps as well as performed at hundreds of town summer concerts and private birthday parties.
We have 10 award-winning parent-friendly CDs for children and families, available on itunes and our website.
My solo birthday parties are like 2 parties in one. Perfect for under 10 year olds, my shows are interactive and funny, and are part concert, part dance party. I can even include some DJ games and dances if the kids a older.
In schools we perform character education assembly programs (concerts) using original music and humor to bring our messages to their students. Themes include, 'anti-bullying, drug abd tobacco awareness, respect, kindness, reading, holidays shows, and much more.
All of our other shows (libraries, town concerts, camps, etc.) are just full of high energy and fun music. If there's a place to get up and dance we can do that or it can be a more traditional concert type show.
We've been called a cross between The Smothers Brothers (remember them?) and Jimmy Buffett. Our goal and passion is writing, producing, and performing fun interactive music for kids that parents can enjoy as well./
One final note on our original songs. We are known for our message songs, but for venues outside of school we perform just plain fun music (unless otherwise requested).
We can customize ANY show for ANY audience.
Tommy Gardner: partner
Danny Quinn: partner

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 45 - 90 minutes
We want to give each audience a fun, high energy, clean family show. We use humor and interaction to get the kids involved and we direct much of our humor to the adults so they feel like they are a p[art of the show as well.
If the venue allows, then we like to get the kids (and parents) up to dance to original award-winning songs such as, "Lobster Conga", "Dizzy Chicken", "Healthy Food Limbo", "Simon Says Song", and others.
Our goal is to engage every audience with a memorable experience that they tell their friends and family about!
For larger audiences, please inquire for custom sound requirements
We provide our own sound for audiences of up to about 400
We just need electric, about a 6x6 area for us, and space for the kids to sit and eventually get up and dance. If possible a product table would be very helpful and appreciated (for larger shows, not solo birthday parties).
Depending on the type of party, audience age/size, etc., here are some of our most popular songs:
Healthy Food Limbo
Ice Cream Sundae
Do You Like To Dance

I Will Never Smoke
Just Say No To Drugs
We Will Rock Drug Free
