Terrific, energetic and fantastic – that’s the band, the show, and the audience! “The Beatles of Kids’ Music” – are what the Zucchini Brothers, Jack, Steve and Sam are often called. “Words of Wisdom Set to Foot-tapping Music” – are what the Zucchini Brothers deliver. This band of brothers: Jack on Guitar, Steve on Keyboards, Sam on Drums (each his own character, all of whom sing) offers up a musical stir-fry of styles. You never know just what these three zany guys will do. But one thing’s for sure, once you’ve seen ‘em – you won’t forget ‘em…  Not your average bunch of vegetables, these terrific musicians bring you their latest songs from Zucchiniland, and a whole lot of your favorite Zucchini Music and fun!
