Why am I different? Having been in the business for over 15 years, I am firmly of the belief that being a good entertainer requires a lot more than simply being a good singer.
In my shows, it is the audience who are the important people in the room.
I have found that residents enjoy a show so much more, when they feel they are part of the showI like to try to make each resident feel special and important, through warm and gentle interaction, before, during and after the show.
I do feel that, especially for Nursing, Dementia, and EMI units, if you have an entertainer who stays in the corner of the room, and doesn’t interact with your residents, you might as well save your money and put a CD on.
Please click on the "reviews" button above, to read past customers' comments on this.
Before the show I chat with the audience introduce myself and establish myself as a friendly and gentle presence in the room – so important for residents who may be nervous of an unfamiliar face.
 I give out tambourines and maracas. These are loved by the more able residents, and especially enjoyed by those residents who are not able to join in the singing, but who still want to feel part of the show.
The instruments are lightweight, musician quality, and are sanitised after every show.
Then we start the music. I continue interacting with the audience during the songs and introduce different activities during the songs.
I also have a spare wireless microphone which I offer to any resident who is singing with gusto, and I encourage hearty applause when a person has sung.
After the show I present every resident with a free photo souvenir.

Summer / Christmas Fair Package
A summer / Christmas fair is a great way to raise funds.
In my experience, if you have an entertainer, more visitors come, and they tend to stay longer and spend more on stalls and catering.
I also help to make the day run more smoothly, and raise more funds, by making announcements on the microphone such as:
·                    officially welcoming residents and visitors
·                    pushing sales of raffle tickets,
·                    enthusiastically giving details of stalls and prizes
·                    announcing special events during the course of the day
          (“the burgers are ready!” Let’s welcome Father Christmas!  etc)
·                    drawing and announcing raffle tickets and any other prizes
·                    thanking all staff, residents and visitors

one hour £60.00   2 x 45 mins £75.00
