Tommy Gardner - Singer-songwriter, founder

Tommy Gardner has been writing songs and playing guitar his entire life, but only found children's music when his kids were young. He began singing for their classrooms and writing original songs for and with them. He joined his good friend, the late Danny Quinn in 1998 and began the Uncle Brothers.

Since then he has 9 award-winning children/family CDs and has developed a powerful set of assembly programs for elementary grades, and more recently a speaking program for middle and high schools called, "You Are A SuperHero.." based on his eBook of the same title, available on Amazon.


Tommy created these shows to be uplifting, high energy and fun because he discovered that when the students are having fun, the messages sneak in more easily. Important character education messages such as; kindness, respect, anti-bullying, anti-drug/smoking, reading, health and fitness, cultural diversity, and others.


Tommy has intentionally kept his rates as affordable as possible, trying to be sensitive to precarious assembly budgets and cuts to government funding. He wants every school, regardless of their budgets (or lack thereof), to be able to have these important assemblies for their students, so he created a unique and powerful zero-cost fundraising program based on character themed t-shirts (or custom school shirts). For more information on how you can have FREE assemblies for your school, please email us today at FreeSchoolShows@gmail.com


Tommy Gardner has performed in hundreds of elementary schools, libraries,town concerts, and other family events for the past 20 years. His work solo and with The Uncle Brothers has earned him multiple Parents Choices awards for his 9 children’s CDs, as well as numerous other awards, including iParenting, Children’s Music Web, Parents Guide Award, and others.  His passion is to inspire children through his original music and motivate them to become kinder,  healthier, and more productive and tolerant people as they grow up and prepare for middle school.

Tommy has helped popularize the phrase ‘Motivation Assemblies’ because of his unique gift for reaching children through humor and supporting his messages through his lively and clever original songs.

NEW! Tommy has expanded his messages to older children with a speaking program for middle and high school students, based on his popular eBook, "You Are A SuperHero...", available on Amazon here..
