Mike Hammer

From the moment I walk into your recreation lounge/area, I am making friends with the residents. I’m mindful that in many cases you are dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s, but I am also aware that many residents in care homes enjoy a good time and a singalong, a laugh, or even a dance. I cater for all of these things. If you want to introduce your percussive instruments, tambourines, maracas etc. I am more than happy to alter my repertoire to suit. My music features Gentle Ballads - Celtic Scots, Irish - Comedy Songs - Film Music from the 1930s, 40s, and 50,s 1960s - Pops - Folk - Nostalgia - Audience Participation.... much much more. I also feature the Ukulele and Harmonica and having been a stand-up comedian on cruise ships, I tell a few gags. I am often complimented on my entertainment style, and my singing voice.
