Matthew is the perfect entertainer for care homes and for parties for the elderly. Everybody is invited to sing along to the first half, a collection of traditional favourites, before they can dance to a fine selection of waltzes and swing and rock ‘n’ roll hits, however they are of course welcome to sit back, relax and just listen if they so wish. Matthew is highly experienced in this field and is able to adjust his set to accommodate to the tastes of each audience.
“We had a wonderful afternoon of entertainment in our Nursing Home today. Everyone was singing and clapping to the songs Matthew sang and played. Such a talented and charismatic young man. We loved him.”

Matthew can perform solo or with his backing band. As a soloist, Matthew can fit into smaller lounges or tight spots, and the fee will also be reduced. However, hiring Matthew to bring along his drummer and pianist brings an extra dimension to the performance and especially helps to get people dancing to the rock ‘n’ roll and swing numbers towards the end of the show. All the musicians Matthew works with are finely selected, experienced and talented musicians.
A typical performance is one hour, with the cost of a solo show at £50 and at £65 with the band/trio. This fee may alter slightly depending on our travel expenses and may also increase during seasons of high demand, such as Christmas and New Year. 50% deposits are always taken.
Matthew is now fully DBS checked.
