Shows

After more than fifteen years in the business, I have learned a basic formula for one-hour shows.  As you can see, I have many shows from which to choose, so check out the list, and then if one or more of them resonate with you, visit the Contact/Booking page and let me know your dates, and the show that interests you.  I look forward to talking with you!

Healing Melodies

These interactive shows are targeted to seniors, featuring music from the 30s to the 50s.  These shows are perfect for facilities (nursing homes, assisted living, independent living) or senior centers, clubs, or organizations.  They use music and comedy as therapy, to stimulate memory and coordination through motivation, movement and story telling.  These shows run between 45-60 minutes, and are often booked in the afternoon from 2pm-3pm, for happy hour at 3:30pm, or after dinner at 6pm.  See the descriptions and song lists below.
