This is an uplifting evening of music, storytelling, and humor that has delighted audiences around the US, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. “Tomatoes” is a warm, life-affirming show that reinforces the healing power of the arts and of human connection. It’s an honest, endearing story of making positive choices, and enjoying the rewards of doing what you love.

Keith Alessi partners with organizations in every town and city where he performs to raise money for local causes, donating 100% of his fee. The Grange show will benefit We Are Instrumental, the nonprofit group that promotes musical education and provides musical instruments to young people in Northern New York.
