Gemini celebrates with their audiences the fun, warmth, and humor of family life. The twin brothers have an up-beat flair for involving everyone, from tots to grandparents, in the music making. The result is a dynamic show ranging from laughter, grins, and boisterous fun, to the magic of hushed lullabies and tender ballads. The whole family will want to join in for sing-alongs, hand motion tunes, folk tales, and music from around the world. The highlights of their shows are Gemini’s original, sparkling songs about the everyday experiences of childhood and growing up.

San and Laz began performing together in 1973 and have released numerous award-winning recordings for adults, children and families. They have received recognition from Parents’ Choice Magazine, the American Library Association, the National Parenting Publications (NAPPA), the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning through the Arts and more. “Fancy That!” their first video, was voted one of the Top 10 children’s videos by the American Library Association & Random House. Several of Gemini’s songs are included in the McGraw-Hills music education textbook Spotlight on Music—Grade1 which is used by music teachers across the country.
