Seniors Events

The purpose of this page is to to show case many of the types of Seniors Events I have performed.  Here we present a variety of types of events that Music Grams Entertainment can deliver. A Vancouver Singing Telegram is always available 24/7 and Seniors can have Singing Telegrams delivered to any care center personally or for their group. Music Grams Entertainment is diverse and can be envisioned in unlimited settings or venues. That makes us proud.

Chrystle And Ludgar's 60th Anniversary Party

Private Anniversary Party

Peter and his wife Lana (Peter's assistant) made my grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary party a smashing success!  They were both extremely professional and prompt with all aspects of the hiring & inquiring process, right up to arrival and set-up; very easy to deal with (i.e.hassle free & convenient payment options like Paypal); and the best part is that Peter's musical talent is simply undeniable! 

Although Peter can sing many genres of music and is very versatile in being able to accommodate any specific wishes and in English as well, he met every one of my family's expectations of entertaining an entire backyard BBQ celebration with mostly wonderful popular old German songs, including many of my Oma and Opa's favorites, and many guest requests as well.  My guests were all very impressed and many applauded me for doing such a nice job finding the entertainment.  His playing was just the right amount of interaction with guests, and was not intrusive at all; what a joy it was to hear such nice singing all afternoon.  :)  I highly recommend hiring this duo to entertain your event; you will not be disappointed!

     Ruth Receives A Special Mother's Day Message From Her Daughter In Toronto

A Mother's Day Singing Telegram   

Music Grams gave my mom a Mother's Day to remember! Being a daughter in Toronto with Mom in Vancouver, it was hard not to be with her in person. But Peter supplied the personal touch, sang a special song, delivered flowers and took pictures of it all to send back. Peter was professional and easy to deal with and made my gift to my mom something very special. Thanks!

The Waterford Seniors sang and danced at their own Kris Kringle Christmas Party that day and had a blast! Many were singing along with familiar tunes such as Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer, Rockin Around The Christmas Tree, Silver Bells, Jingle Bells, White Christmas and Feliz Navidad.  

Here is what Diane James had to say about the performance:

I just want to share with all the care homes in the lower mainland about the entertainment we had on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012. Kris & Jessica Kringle came to The Waterford for a sing-a-long and photo shoot to follow. They were such a delightful couple and their music was outstanding. They were so gentle and interactive with our residents. People to date are still commenting on what a wonderful time they had. Peter Paulus, we look forward to seeing you in 2013! Thank you once again for the amazing performance.

From your friends at The Waterford

The Sunwood Retirement Home Mardis Gras Event

 

February 21th 2012

Entertainment

Peter entertained for the Seniors Mardi Gras celebration and the turn out was excellent. There were about 30 seniors with masks and beads singing and clapping hands, when a couple gals got up to shake to " The Last Dance"  It was exhilarating and very rewarding to see these folks enjoying themselves so much.

After the event, Peter spoke with a lovely gal all dressed to the nines, wearing a bright red dress, pearls and a beautiful red rose in her hair. She sings in the seniors' choir and entertains for many care homes herself. She said that she really enjoyed the songs that Peter had chosen and that they sing many of the same popular tunes in her group. Next, Peter spoke with an older gentlemen and reminisced about past musical moments together, when he turned and said, "you know, when you sang the "Tennessee Waltz" it reminded me of my sweetheart because that was our wedding song."
