Live Entertainment Review

The Live Entertainment program for February featured three extremely talented young ladies. The trio took the audience on a musical journey from the 1940’s to the present, as they performed hits by “Divas though the Decades.” Their costume changes, well synchronized choreography, vocal agility and strong harmonies created an evening of music that was a truly polished performance.

Up Next

On March 2nd, “Johnny Wild and the Delights” will bring their show to our PPE stage. According to their website, they are “Orlando’s premier ‘50s & ‘60s tribute band playing the hits of Buddy, Hank, Roy, Elvis and many, many more.” I anticipate that there will be a lot of toe tapping and singing along with this group as they bring many of us back to the music of our young selves.

See Terry Butler to purchase your tickets.

Live Entertainment review

The 2023 Season of the PPE Live Entertainment series came to a close with the audience enjoying the Comedy Show featuring Mike Marino on April 1st.

Peals of laughter filled the clubhouse as Mike smoothly moved from one topic to another including stories about his Italian roots, toys, shopping at Walmart and Costco and running for President.

Overall, Mike had the audience in the palm of his hand as he wove his stories seamlessly all night. Terry wrapped up the evening saying, “I’ve never laughed so much in my life”.  That says it all.

Live Entertainment Update

PPE’s Elvis fans sang along, swayed to the music and were totally engaged during March’s Live Entertainment program that featured Cote Deonath in his return visit to our PPE stage.  It was easy to see why this 25-year-old tribute artist has won numerous awards.  His voice, gyrations, costumes and high energy performance captured “The King” and delighted the audience.

On April 1st, the final show of the Live Entertainment series will feature comedian, Mike Marino. Known as New Jersey’s bad boy, he has performed on stages from New York to L.A. and around the world. His humor focuses on everyday life and his Italian family roots. You may recognize him from the many films, soaps, commercials and talk shows in which he has appeared. It is said that “he has a tongue like a razor and a heart of gold.” We’re looking forward to his program!

Live Entertainment Update

 

The February show featured Mike Palma, a talented magician and ventriloquist. He offered lessons on throwing your voice and using the art of misdirection in card tricks. He introduced the audience to Honey Girl and Buddy, both residents of Elderberry Assisted Living. Mike involved many of our PPE residents in the program who were good sports when they were invited to assist him in the “magic” he was making.  “How did he do that?” was a common thought throughout the evening.

COTE Deonath will be returning to the PPE stage on March 4th. The Elvis tribute artist, based out of Ocala, Florida, has won numerous awards, travelled throughout the world and in his own words, loves spreading “a message of joy and harmony everywhere I go.” If you’re an Elvis fan, you’re going to love this program!
