Playing acoustic guitar and the mandolin, music is tailored specifically for the over 60s with a mix of uplifting 'middle of the road' Rock, Pop, C&W, Irish, from the 50s/60s/70s, even Old Time Singalong, complete with customised backing tracks. I've been playing in various bands for 25 years and now as a soloist, I can offer a friendly laid back presentation with plenty of audience participation, making the act most suitable for smaller social clubs, support groups, sheltered accommodation housing associations, residential homes and family celebrations.
If required, the act is available as a duo with an electric piano accordion see facebook.com/thepastimers
Whether you just want background music, or a show with a good humoured banter, impromptu pop quiz with silly prizes, perhaps with a bit of dancing, have a chat with me to discuss what you would like at your event.
Also available, a PowerPoint presentation showing a lighthearted look back at the 1950s through the eyes of a child, teenager and married life with plenty of pictures, videos and music from the decade.
Read more about my work as a busker and an entertainer, and about my CD of Mandolin music. You can listen to recordings as well.
I enjoy charity fundraising busking in the streets, supermarkets, car boot sales, community fairs etc, free of charge for local charities, raising just over £30,000 in 5 years. The music has shown to lift people's mood enhancing the collection totals especially when collecting with a team.
Feel free to contact me if you feel my act would assist you in fundraising efforts for your charity.
Feel free to discuss your requirements and a no-obligation quote. I look forward to hearing from you.
