Joy Perrin plays for Independent and Assisted Living audiences, as a one-woman-band using guitar, vocals, small sound system, microphones, and digital drum computer. (Acoustic only with guitar, for Memory Impaired, is a different program)

Every show is different! Any 'theme' also available.

Joy brings 40 years of performance experience, with music from the 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's, woven through
with funny stories and music trivia. Your residents will be singing along, reminiscing, laughing, and sometimes even dancing!

"She makes us all laugh and sing and happy, and that is important,"
says 90-year-old resident Reidon Young at a popular Marin Assited Living Community.Marin Independent Journal, Feb. 2007

"She never talks down to you. She is genuine and it comes through," says 84-year-old Doris Freidman.

"She does not make you sad going down Memory Lane , She sings it uplifting and it makes me feel damn good."
-Sam Whittaker, 92
