One of the things I really enjoy musically is entertaining the residents at Assisted Living and Retirement centers.
I try to provide them with entertainment and memories. I perform songs that we all grew up with, and encourage folks to sing along if they know the words.
Invariably, folks come up to me after a performance and thank me, and also share stories of their youth.
If you would like for me to entertain at your facility, or private party, please email me at email@example.com. corporate entertainment in Portland
Chuck Par-Due is now booking engagements as a Guest Soloist with YOUR Big Band. Chuck recreates that great Harry James trumpet sound, playing actual arrangements from the Harry James library. For booking information contact Chuck at firstname.lastname@example.org
I get to perform at a lot of Retirement and Assisted Living Communities.
I am constantly being asked "What do you do during your One Man Show" at Senior Communities and Private Parties?
Here is an actual one performance that I recently gave at an Assisted Living Community in West Linn, Oregon. I have purposely left in all the banter between songs, because it is part of entertaining Seniors. The banter helps them remember times and places related to the songs.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
Monday - Friday: 9am - 5pm
Saturday: By appointment
