2021 MUSIC SENIORS PIC

Vocalist / Guitarist / Pianist / Songwriter

SENIOR & HEALTHCARE

Always comfortable with the elderly and medical settings, I volunteered as an assistant to a geriatric occupational therapist during high school.  My college studies were primarily focused in occupational therapy, psychology, and art - but music won as my life choice.  Once I stopped taking my music all over the country, I started performing in senior and healthcare facilities.  Now close to 20 years later, I am right at home in the environment.  Not only does it bring joy and the "show" to them, it makes me joyful too!

Here's how I do it...

  • My repertoire includes popular music from many decades, eras, and genres and I often create theme sets for fun
  • With vast material, I do not have to repeat the same music set in any given facility in a year (or more) of dates
  • Let me sing and use your piano (working / tuned) or my guitar at a senior community cost savings
  • We can schedule frequent (up to twice a month) dates or on an as-needed basis
  • Usually my audience is small enough to remain acoustic, but I'll set up a small PA system when necessary
  • If I am sick, I will reschedule.   Communicable illnesses in your community?  Keep me informed when it's safe to return
  • Invioces are sent on the 1st of performance month (with exceptions) and I gladly supply W-9s to my clients on request

I serve independent folks, assisted living, memory care, rehab, family care homes, private homes, and others!

 


More about the music:  My repertoire includes a variety of songs from different eras (as far back as the American Revolution and some contemporary).  I cover a variety of pop genres including Jazz Standards, Blues, Country, Country Rock/Crossover, Rock N Roll/Oldies, Easy Listening/Adult Contemporary, Folk, Pop, and Broadway.   Also a songwriter, occasionally I may toss in an original song.  Always adding new material, here is only a small sampling of cover music you might hear:
