Thread Name: Best Closing Song for Nursing Home Gigs
Subject: RE: Best Closing Song for Nursing Home Gigs
I'm mpre likely to OPEN with You Are My Sunshine and CLOSE with God Bless America. Seems to work well with most of my folks. Guess it depends on the group.
FWIW, though, I don't think you have to do a "parting" song to end. Sometimes I close with "Those Were The Days" or "La Bamba" or something else that's energizing. ("La Bamba" makes a great closer at Cinco de Mayo time or for a party.)
