A little bit about me

My full time vocation has been as a Mechanical and Electrical Engineer and Teacher, whilst in my spare time I have been a part time entertainer since 1972 when I joined my first band.


I have extensive experience over many years as an entertainer playing and singing in different settings such as social clubs, Minor's welfare clubs, private parties, weddings, corporate functions and theatres.


I started entertaining for the elderly in the care home setting in March 2018 after taking early retirement. I sing a wide range of musical genre consisting of songs specifically chosen with my audience in mind.

A full list of songs that I sing can be found at the bottom of this page.

I work in Care Homes covering a small area in and around Ipswich Suffolk.


On Line Live Zoom Music Shows

I also entertain on line for various organisations such as Music for Dementia, Age UK various Memory Cafe groups and The Ageing Experience which is based in North Carolina, USA.

Care Home Music Online - On Demand - Any Time

This is work in progress at the moment but i will be discussing with you in the near future.

In addition to the weekly Zoom shows I am looking to provide also a resource that will be available 24/7


These are my idea's:


1) To provide pre-recorded shows, each of 30 minutes long available on an alternative site to this and also on Vimeo.

Vimeo is available via Amazon Stick and on many smart TV

You Tube is not used due to adverts interupting.

2) Pre recorded video but with lyrics added so that residents can join in with the singing.

These songs can be chosen on request from my song lists seen on this site. If a song is not on this site it may be available as a backing track and if so I am happy to source the track and provide as a singalong video.
