nager nursing home gigs, info please-neat article added (16) RE: nursing home gigs, info pleas 02 May 09

I perform at nursing homes at least twice a month and do it for free. The thought of charging these elderly people for entertainment does not sit well with me I am afraid and I will leave that aspect of it at that. As for material, I do a mixture. Singalong with songs they know, lots of jokes and funny stories in between and some of the beautiful ballads from the 30s, 40s,50s and 60s right through to modern material. Many have Scottish or Irish backgrounds and love to hear "their" folk songs. A few simple comedy songs go over well too. As long as it is good music presented in a cheerful, friendly way they will enjoy it. Oh, and I have never found them to be a "tough" audience - quite the opposite.
