Thread creep Mudlark, if you can deal with old age/convalescent homes, not only are you a performer, but you deserve a medal. I have found an effective technique with those audiences is to switch from songs to a story. Sometimes they get so interactive that that is the rest of my set because they want to talk to you. Remember that your job is to meet their needs, not necessarily to fulfil your own agenda.
