Copper Tom was a good addition to our Summer Reading Program entertainment line-up. We had over 40 children of all ages (with their parents) and everyone had a really good time. Copper Tom played fun music that got everyone on their feet and dancing. The library was not quiet that day!
Tom put on a 45 minute show at our Easter Party for about 250 people. The kids loved it. They especially loved playing the little shakers and tambourines! Thanks Tom. We will definitely be having you again!
Great performance! We all loved it! We will definitely hire you again! :)
We loved rocking and rolling with Copper Tom. The children in our school loved the interactive show and especially loved the bubbles!
I had the priviledge of assisting Copper Tom with the stage set-up and sound during his performance at the Boonshoft Science Museum's "Voyage on the Parkway." This event was a children's learning festival in Dayton, OH. Copper Tom put on an outstanding show that the children (and their parents) enjoyed very much. He sang and played guitar, told stories, and danced. Almost all of the children in attendance left their seats to dance to the songs that were performed. Copper Tom has a very large catalog of songs to choose from. He played 3 different hour long sets at the event with each one being unique. Also, he sure knows how to work a crowd! And...he is a super nice guy who was fun to work with...heck, he even had me doing the "Little Tea Pot" dance and I'm 6'3" 240 lbs!
Copper Tom was very professional and easy to work with. He was wonderful with the kids and his songs were very catchy.
“Everyone enjoyed the show very much and we would certainly use you again!”
The kids really enjoyed themselves at your "Kidz Koncert"
:-) I asked for interaction with them and you delivered! So, on behalf of the kids and myself, thank you very much for helping to make Kidz Kamp 2013 a memorable one. Even the adults had a great time!
