Gary's Thoughts on Entertaining Seniors:
"Although my musical background has provided me with a variety of audiences, performing for seniors has always been a rewarding experience for me. I have enjoyed my interaction with seniors because more than any audience they seem to really appreciate the joy music brings to their lives. My shows for seniors consist of my singing to background music with plenty of audience participation; I like to mingle. Depending upon your needs I can add keyboards or guitar to my show. However, I have found doing a vocal performance gives me the freedom to get into the crowd and allows me to devote all of my attention to my audience. Interaction with my audience is a priority. It is important that everyone feels included in my show. I try to get audience members to sing along or clap with me by performing timeless songs that hopefully bring back some nice memories for them."
