Lou Gallo is one of those rare children’s performers who is as beloved by children as he is by adults.  His most recent CD, Walk the Dog, has garnered praise from such children’s music luminaries as Laurie Berkner, and its release led to an invitation to perform “The Marathon Song” with his band at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon, to a crowd of over 45,000 runners and spectators.  Earlier that same year, his song, “I’m Home”, was featured in an AdCouncil TV announcement about federal foreclosure prevention programs.  Meanwhile, Lou continues to delight children all over the New York area with nearly 100 yearly concerts in libraries, schools, parks, and theaters. Some early mornings you will find him in schools throughout the tri-state singing his stories to the youngest of his fans

 
   Mem Fox author of Reading Magic says, “I love what you are doing, 
      especially as the rhyme, rhythm, repetition and tunes of your songs 
         will be laying down the firmest foundations of literacy in every child who enjoys them.”

          Bruce Degen, author of Jamberry and Mooncake writes, “Your 
            musical treatment of my book was just delightful!  It was perfect.”
Most recently, Lou joined forces with Jean Rohe, a wonderful songwriter, vocalist, and instrumentalist.   Together with other talented musicians they formed “The Very Hungry Band” - a playful group whose impeccable musicianship and down-to-earth antics never fail to captivate their fans.  “Walk the Dog” is their debut album. 
Lou had the privilege of performing one of his original tunes, I’m Home for the Kaplan Thaler Ad Agency and the Ad Council.  A song Lou wrote to express the joy of being home with his family was chosen for a national TV and radio campaign entitled Making Home Affordable, a program that helps homeowners who are facing foreclosure.

Lou is a musician and dad (and runner.)  He combined these roles to serenade his children...then it became his beloved career.
