Today I performed for the sweet folks at the South Colleyvine Ranch retirement facility. I have regular gig there every 3rd Monday of the month.
The folks there really enjoy a "show."
With that in mind, I always take into consideration what I learned attending music shows in Branson, Missouri.
Every music show there (pretty much) includes:
-Country Western songs
-Patriotic Songs, and
If you are singing to a group of "seniors" (I will leave you to define the ages related to that term) you need to remember to include songs from each of the above categories.
And . . . put some life into it!
Crack a joke (a clean joke still gets big laughs).
Tell a story.
In the end . . . sing the best that you can.
The outcome of all this is two-fold.
1) You see a lot of smiles and hear a lot of laughter, and . . .
2) You get asked to return!
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
