Visit our New Page: Take a look at the videos that we have uploaded to the Performance Videos page. They will give you a good idea what a Nursing Homes Swing event is like.
Project Life Enhancement: We continue to seek donations of instruments, keyboards, iPods, radios, CD players, electronic games, tablets or laptops, or music or keyboard stands so that Nursing Homes Swing can be a conduit for acquiring and distributing items that can enhance the life of the residents. If you have any “extra” items sitting around unused, please contact Mary Beth Revak or send us a message through the Contact page. Your donations can help to enrich the lives of nursing home residents—young or old—especially someone in one of the Medicare dependent homes.
Musicians: Update or include your information for the Musicians Listings. We send periodic reminders to the activities directors of the nursing homes that musicians are listed on our website so that they can contact them directly when they need music for additional events. Fees are negotiated directly with the musicians. This has worked well for some of the musicians with several events being arranged in the past few months. We look forward to the list being a good resource for other venues—restaurants, wineries, etc.—as soon as we get the word out. If you want to send your information, I'll be happy to post it to the site.
Please visit our featured performer: Dick Orange here.
