Connecting With Audiences From Kids Parties to Rock Clubs To Nursing Homes
I have seen toddlers take off like Mexican jumping beans and seniors stand up out of their wheelchairs and start to dance - to the very same song. I witnessed both, at separate parties one weekend while playing Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock. Age range: 3 to 93.
What do they love? Fun lyrics, enduring melodies and a BEAT!
I believe that music provides a much needed SHARED experience at parties and celebrations. We have enough targeted and specialized entertainment for our given demographic.
It is my experience, from years of playing in rock clubs, bars, singer-songwriter venues, private parties, weddings, hospitals, nursing homes and children's events that people respond to the same great music at all ages. Seniors don't need to endlessly hear the same tired standards. Kid's don't need only the patronizing silly songs. We all want to hear well written, upbeat, timeless popular music- that we can enjoy together!
I am passionate about bringing smiles, tapping feet and clapping hands to all ages. Have a look at the song lists here, and you will see that I have plenty to choose from for all occasions and all ages.
Kids, parents, grandparents and great grandparents- let's connect while dancing and singing along to the greatest pop music of the last 75 years! Music doesn't need to be in separate rooms for different generations!

I LOVE performing popular songs from all eras at events and parties. I am also a singer-songwriter in the pop/rock genre with several full length releases available here at I Tunes. I have an extensive catalog of licensed music as well. My original songs have been featured in over 300 instances in TV shows and national commercials. As a side woman I have played guitar and keyboards with some of the greatest rock musicians in New York, such as guitarist Richard Lloyd of Television.
