I play a broad range of music including old time classics, popular songs from past decades and vintage sing-a-long favourites. The audience is encouraged to join in or they can just sit back and listen to the music. I play acoustic guitar which gives the proceedings a relaxed feel, and means the music is never too loud. I have experience of playing in care and nursing homes, especially those catering for dementia and Alzheimer sufferers, and have a number of homes that I visit on a regular basis. I have also helped run music workshops for adults with learning difficulties. I am CRB checked and available mornings, afternoons or evenings, 7 days a week. My rates, for a one hour session, start at only £50 for mornings, £60 for afternoons and £70 for evenings and weekends. To book a session or to find out more call Andy Martin on 07771 510823 or email: amartin@moonroller.com  "A great entertainer who gives his all - interacts with the residents who have warmed to him well" - Belinda, Activities Co-ordinator, - Millway House, Andover. "Residents and visitors alike are more than impressed with his performances .... I thoroughly recommend his "Musical Memories" - Hazel, Flowerdown Care Home, Winchester. "Andy uses a wide selection of music and we have enjoyed his regular performances. The residents participate by clapping, dancing and singing along to the music.
