"Get ready to move! Strummin and Drummin know how to keep the children actively involved while creating a warm and comfortable environment for ALL. Adults Beware: You may be compelled to get up and dance your“self! You will love them so much, you just may want to invite them back- we certainly have! “

This Program is great entertainment combined with a great message. It complements our music program. The three musicians are great performers. They personalized the performance to fit our school and involved kids and staff. The program was fun and age appropriate. A great afternoon. This program was a wonderful kick off to our school year. Chris, Matt and Kenny were friendly, energetic, and talented. They had great rapport with the audience. Their participation and audience control (with so much offered) was amazing.

“Strummin’ and Drummin’ were amazing! The kids are still talking about it. The faculty as well as the kids agreed it was one of the best programs they have seen at Locust Valley! Some of the kids thought Chris and Matt should have their own TV show!”

“Incredible!! Chris and Matt have such a wonderful way with kids. I was so impressed with the degree of interactive opportunities the students had. Chris and Matt set this into a multi-cultural diverse backdrop of catchy tunes. There was a smile on every child’s face. The school can’t wait until they visit again!

“It was an educational, hands-on experience that every child loved. Our children had a wonderful time during Chris and Matt's program. The children sang a diverse mixture of multicultural songs and they had many opportunities to come up front and play from an incredible assortment of instruments. I highly recommend then to your school."
