Retirement Communities History

"For our family members to come up right away
and request your return--

then I know I've done my job!"
--Meg,  Woodland Terrace, Bridgman, MI. 

More than one AD told us
“You guys made me a hero!”   

We brought an upbeat, lively, gently interactive show,
with a variety of musical styles and instruments,
to keep residents fully engaged and entertained!
They heard music they enjoyed--some old, some new--
spiced with lots of humor
We specialized in
Hit Parade favorites, classic country,
& classic novelty tunes.

We ended our performances with 
an invitation for residents to try the washtub bass!

Retirement communities we've played:
(some of them multiple times--a total of over 200 shows!)

"Wow! Yesterday's performance at our November birthday party was GREAT!
People are still talking this morning about how much they enjoyed the entertainment.
We loved your humor, and your repertoire. along with all of your unique instruments.
Please let us know when you will next be in our area,
we would love for you to come again".

  1. I think its so great that this group is providing entertainment for our elderly. Our elderly have done so much for us and we have learned so many things from them, the least we can do is to keep them happy. I would be interested in seeing this show myself at my local retirement community.

    1. Thank you, Caleb!
      It looks like you're in New England--we've never ventured there, yet;
      but, we'll see.

  2. Very interesting to read. I really love to read such a nice article. Thanks! Keep rocking.
