Allen in Oz Getting paid to sing in Retirement Cent. (44) RE: Getting paid to sing in Retirement Cent. 05 Aug 09

Our trio here in Australia has been perfoming in retirement villages and nursing homes for 4 years. Some ideas for you are:

1. Start with one or two slow well known sing along songs eg Alice Blue Gown, My Blue Heaven, Black Hills of Dakota etc)

2. Tell one or two quick jokes between songs

3 Do an instrumental if possible

4. Sing an Irish or Scottish song

5. Ask for requests

6. Talk about some old radio shows and personalities

7. Finish with some fast stuff...Five Foot Two then Wish me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye

Remember to smile a lot and have a cup of tea and a yarn with them afterwards

Best wishes

Allen in OZ
