Tommy (Tom Gardner) from The Uncle Brothers presents an upbeat, interactive and parent friendly show, and loaded with important messages like reading, value of libraries, respect, using imagination, and many others. Having fun is our primary goal so that messages are absorbed. -Over 220 parents and kids thoroughly enjoyed your lively and entertaining music!- Jim Karge, Saratogo Springs Public Library Note: This show is different than Tommy's show for younger children because the songs are aimed at the older children (5-10), but the younger ones love it as well. The program is very similar to the Uncle Brothers family concert, except the kids are more a part of the show.
