Thread Name: Best Closing Song for Nursing Home Gigs
Subject: RE: Best Closing Song for Nursing Home Gigs
I have had great success with a medley of "Let the Rest of the World Go By", "Smile the While" and "Now is the Hour". They segue nicely.
Since 9/11, I've had lots of reqests for "God Bless America". I tried closing with it but it made for an awkward finale so I, now, sing it in the next to last spot, then I end with the medley. That has proven to be a good solution.
