You are in for a treat! Ray Watson Entertainment always delivers lively, uptempo songs, funny but age-appropriate banter and an overall engaging performance.

The Music

Studies show that the right music increases Seniors’ Quality of Life. By incorporating music into their everyday life, seniors can give their quality of life a much-needed boost. Older adults benefit from music that improves their moods, brings back older, happy memories, encourages socialization, and promotes overall mental and physical health. As a musician catering to seniors we choose music that improves their quality of life by selecting music that is positive, motivational, enjoyable and familiar. Ray Watson Entertainment celebrates music that never goes out of style…performing music that spans decades, from Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and the great ladies of jazz, to Motown and beyond.

The Band

Anyone could just come and turn on and DJ a music playlist for seniors to listen to, but that is not nearly as interesting and talented as a live musician or musicians tickling the ivories, strumming or drumming. Ray keeps your guests attention as he entertains from song to song, often dancing, directing the performance and holding the attention of the crowd as he plays his instruments. In addition, Ray Watson Entertainment utilizes only the most talented musicians.

"Ray came to our Home to mix it up for our resident’s 90th birthday. He has the perfect temperament, smiles the whole time, has high energy, so polite and calm. He was on time and not stressed upon arriving, set up, or breakdown. He was dressed nice, kept in communication with me all the way up to the event."

“I worked with Ray Watson for a Nursing Home event this year and words cannot describe how good of a musician he is. From his song selection to his professionalism I recommend Ray for anyone whose trying to have a professional band at their event. Thank you for creating great energy and helping us close out the month! 15 out 10!”

“I was at my grandmother’s retirement home Holiday party in December. It was magical. There was a gourmet buffet and Santa Claus, but what made it the most lively was the live band headed up by Ray Watson. Then, when I went to visit my nana about a month later I heard a familiar voice coming down the hall and it was Ray, singing and playing music on a mobile keyboard. Some of the residents followed him around as he stopped in to see some who couldn’t get out of their rooms. So cool!”
