A former stay-at-home dad, Mr. Gabe performs nursery rhymes, folk songs, and modern favorites (such as “Yellow Submarine” and “La Bamba”) for young children, ages zero to six. Based in Takoma Park, Maryland, he has appeared at libraries, cafés, day cares, performing arts centers and seasonal festivals throughout suburban Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia. In addition to his solo performances, Mr. Gabe frequently appears with his band, The Circle Time All-Stars. Featuring electric guitar, bass, and drums, they perform an upbeat, family-friendly mix of rock ‘n’ roll classics and children’s songs.

In 2012, Mr. Gabe released a CD of mostly original songs, entitled Play Date (now out-of-print), which won a Parents’ Choice Recommended Award. A second album, Metro Train, which was recorded with The Circle Time All-Stars, followed in 2015. It, too, won a Parents’ Choice Recommended Award.

“Listening to Mr. Gabe sing is like hearing an old friend telling stories on the front porch swing.”
— Ashley Jo Farmer, Parents’ Choice Foundation
