"Listening to Mr. Gabe sing is like hearing an old friend telling stories on the front porch swing"
—Ashley Jo Farmer, Parents’ Choice Foundation
I've been performing for young children in the Washington, DC area for over ten years. My shows are a lively and interactive mix of traditional children's songs, child-friendly pop songs and originals. I'm available to visit day cares, preschools and libraries. I also do school fundraisers and birthday parties.
I lead a three-piece children's music band, featuring electric guitar, bass and drums. We perform at outdoor festivals and other public events throughout the DC area. Our music is a rockin' and rollin' blend of traditional songs, family-friendly rock and pop classics, and originals from my two award-winning albums.
I've recently started performing at senior living facilities (as Gabe Hutter). My repertoire ranges from classic folk songs and Sinatra-style standards to early rock 'n' roll and 60's and 70's pop. I engage audiences through singalongs and other interactive elements, and by offering a few words of background about each song.
“Dear Mr. Gabe – huge thanks from our family for your outstanding performance last weekend at Ellen’s birthday party. Your kindness and warmth made the party unforgettable!”

“Mr. Gabe always brings smiles to the childrens’ faces and gets them up dancing when he performs at our Lively Arts for Little Ones series.”

“Mr. Gabe has performed multiple times for our early childhood program’s celebratory events, and he has never disappointed the crowd! He appeals to a broad and multicultural audience.”
