The Hooley Shooters are the real deal. They are one of the best bands to play at our venue" Pat R., GM, Mahoney's Pub, Poughkeepsie, NY
I am an educator that has seen the enthusiasm in children watching, singing, and participating in The Uncle Brothers program!! Wow they are awesome in getting the attention of children pre-school age to 5th grade, sending many messages of ant-bullying, just say no to drugs, cigarettes etc. As well as love and respect for friends, family and our country!! I have purchased many of their tapes for my grandchildren. Great entertainment for the family on car trips. They all sing the songs and understand the messages on the tapes and practice what they hear!!!
Thank You Uncles Brothers!!!!!
Tommy did an absolute wonderful job for my daughters 2nd birthday party. He accepted the party last minute and was able to entertain all ages. He was extremelly accomidating as well. I appreciate Tommy making my event such a success. I will use him for all my parties going forward! Thanks Tommy!

What to Expect
For kids and families: 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 part of the show as well. We do the same for our adult shows, but of course always appropriate for the age group for which we perform.
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.
Whether it's our family/children's shows or adult Irish-American parties, our goal is to engage every audience with a memorable experience that they tell their friends and family about!
Note: Please understand that we have two completely different shows; one for kids and families and one for adult, which included Irish, American classics, oldies, some country and folk. Always fun and upbeat. We are all about the audience and giving them the time of their lives!
For adults as The Hooley Shooters: It's always St. Patrick's Day, lively, interactive , fun!
For kids and families I perform solo and with The Uncle Brothers. For adults my duo (or trio) is called The Hooley Shooters. I use the same amazing musicians in both groups.
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. For adults we perform in pubs, corporate events, and private 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 fun, and are part concert, part dance party. I can even include some DJ games and dances if the kids are 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 and 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 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.
We will gladly email you our brochure and more information upon request.
For adults, we play in pubs and private parties as The Hooley Shooters, you can google our website. Our playlist includes a fun mix of Irish and American pub classics.
