Tommy Gardner has been performing for both kids and adults for several decades as The Uncle Brothers (kids and family music) for adults as
The Hooley Shooters. Available as a solo, duo, trio, or 4/5 piece band, although please note that the vast majority of his work is with a duo in order to keep
his already low rates more affordable. Google each name for website

We hired Tommy Gardner as the Hooley Shooters for an 8oth birthday party that was geared toward an Irish crowd, and he did not disappoint! Everyone had a wonderful time, singing along to the Irish tunes and dancing the afternoon away. We would highly recommend Tommy Gardner for your party needs!
