Sisters Singin' Oldies is now proud to be a part of Creative Aging of the Mid-South, an organization that brings the arts to older adults where they live and gather.
We are a sisters duo. Our program is a mixture of duets and solos offering Jazz, Country, Pop, Rock 'n' Roll, Big Band, Broadway & Gospel selections from the past with recorded musical accompaniment and professional amplification equipment. Won 1st place in the 2013 Delta Fair Senior Talent Contest and 1st place in the Mid-South Fair Senior America Talent Contest in 2014. Selections range from the 1920's through the 1970's making your occasion more special. No matter what your age our unique style and older music will make you feel good, dance, snap your fingers and sing along.
Music is powerful……..it can help manage stress and agitation, stimulate positive interactions, and coordinate motor movements in people who have seemingly lost control of these functions. Selections from a person’s younger years are most likely to have the strongest responses and the most potential for interaction. This we have learned from the caregivers and from performing at many senior living facilities throughout Memphis and surrounding area. It is such a rewarding experience to see a person’s face light up when we sing a song from their past and they recognize it.
Below is a typical set list of songs, although we change the list for every performance and stay rehearsed on our comprehensive repertoire as well as continuously add new songs. There are so many wonderful oldies songs from which to choose!
