"From the first song you played till the last, my legs and feet wouldn't keep still. And on some of those songs, other parts were moving that hadn't moved in quite awhile! What great music and such memories!"
"That brought back so many memories, both sad and happy. I'm going to be thinking about this the whole afternoon. Thank you so much for coming. It was the best program we've ever had here."
"Where did you find all of those pictures? And the music! If I could have danced, I sure would have! This was delightful. Please come back again and again."
"This reminded me so well of the good old days. Why, I hadn't heard Vaughn Monroe or the Andrews Sisters for I can't remember when. Thank you. This was really grand."
"Oh, how we loved your program. The music is from our young days and it was so nice to hear it again. We loved your pictures too -- oh, those hats! And the things you told us were so interesting. I sure hope you come back again."
If you're not careful, hearing things like that can make your whole day!
Those were actually just a few of the responses we received after presenting "When Swing Was King" to audiences at two new facilities, the Immanuel Courtyard assisted living on Monday afternoon and the Harmony Court independent living in Council Bluffs, Iowa, yesterday afternoon.
We still have a little room in the schedule but things are filling up fast. In fact, we're already booked more than we had originally planned -- so please let us know ASAP if you're interested in helping us bring "When Swing Was King" to the nursing home, assisted living or retirement community in your neighborhood.
