UPDATES TO OUR SERVICES AMID THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
What a rollercoaster this year has been! I hope everyone is still holding up well during this testing time.
I would like to clarify the adjusted services we are currently offering, given the latest guidelines from the government...
GARDEN/CAR PARK SHOWS
Having a battery powered PA system means we can literally be ZERO contact for this service. We have been successfully bringing outdoor shows to care homes since March, and it is definitely our preferred method of delivering the entertainment!
If the layout of your home allows for residents to look out of their windows into the garden or the car park, this would be ideal!
To ensure absolutely zero contact, invoices will be sent digitally, and we will not be accepting cash/cheque payments during this time - as always, our bank details will be on the invoice.
We are also equipped to handle less than favourable weather, if your set up allows for the residents to stay warm and dry! We haven't let the rain stop us! However, our online shows are a great alternative, should the worst happen...
SKYPE/ZOOM/YOUTUBE LIVE VIDEO SHOWS
For those homes where an outdoor show wouldn't be an option, we have set up a remote performance space at home, where we cam stream a live performance right to you!
All you would need is an internet connection, a TV and a laptop!
If you can hook up your laptop via HDMI cable to your TV, we will be able to sing to your residents through the TV set, while still being able to take live requests! We are offering 30 min or 1 hour sessions.
We are making these shows available to rewatch for a week, so that nobody misses out - whether your internet drops out, or you have residents in isolation, everyone will get the chance to watch the show.
If you're unable to gather your residents together to watch live, we are also offering a 30 min or 1 hour pre-recorded show via Private Youtube Link - this will be available to rewatch for a whole month. These are non-personalised to the home, but contain all the same music and chat
I'm well aware that many of the bookings in the diary were for residents birthdays. We can pre-record a message and a song or two especially for them on their birthday. These messages can be sent via WhatsApp, WeTransfer or email, and typically last for around 15 mins.
For all of these services, we are taking requests in advance, so that the residents get to hear their favourite songs!!
The remote services also mean we can reach to people who normally would be too far away for us to visit!
If you'd like any more information, please get in touch!
Keep safe everyone, and we hope to see you all soon xxx
