A lot of times, people overlook the smaller things in life. The smaller things to us, however, could make a huge impact on those living in senior citizen homes. Musical entertainment is one of these things. The individuals in these homes have routines. They do a lot of very similar activities every day. When something new and exciting comes around, like live entertainment, there is a very positive influence placed upon these elderly people.
This process is more formally known as Music Therapy. Although there are more intricate ways of providing music therapy to the elderly, pure entertainment does a portion of the same. This kind of therapy is especially helpful for the senior citizens who have aging related conditions. The music stimulates the brain and helps the individual to develop in ways that other stimulants can’t produce. Music therapy is normally done in a one on one manner, but when there is a group, their reactions to the music can bounce off of each other, creating a wave of positive stimulants.
Music is food for the soul and if we can feed the soul of the elderly through the use of music, then we have made the impact we want.

Hot weather is perfect for Luaus. The food is light and fresh and the music is friendly, fun and relaxing.
When you choose a Luau for your Wedding Reception or other celebration the music and food are where tradition will be of the utmost importance. Live Polynesian drums and slack key guitars will certainly set the tone for an amazing event that will have all of your guests talking for years.
Harmony Entertainment can help you plan the perfect traditional Long Island Summer Luau.
With Spring in full swing many of our customers are opting for an outdoor wedding reception. Having your reception outdoors can add beauty and a more relaxed feel to the celebrations.
The first thing we recommend is to choose a meaningful location. The most popular choices for outdoor wedding receptions are beaches, parks, or gardens. The area you choose should be a place that is near and dear to your heart or just so beautiful you couldn’t imagine having your reception anywhere else. If no building is nearby, you might consider a tent or at least an area with a small tent in case the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. Check into table rentals and bathroom facilities too.
Another great thing about having an outdoor wedding reception is that you can use your surroundings as your inspiration for decorating. If you’re on or near the beach you can use shells and beach themed accessories to decorate the tables, etc… The food you serve could also be based on your surroundings. For example, if you are near the water offer a seafood dish.
Remember, you will need a dance floor or dance area and access to electric if you plan on having live music or a DJ at your outdoor wedding reception.

I came across this touching story today about Maxim Vengero, world famous violinist.
Picture property of Times Online.
“Vengerov normally charges $200,000 per concert but today Vengerov plays for nothing. Or rather, he plays for love. We are in a magnificent paneled hall at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in Putney, southwest London. Arrayed in front of the musician are about 60 wheelchair-bound patients who, in many cases, have minimal control over their limbs, their minds – and their lives”
The story goes on to talk about how not every patient was able to move their hand or tap their foot to the music but that all of them had a smile on their face.
It has been proven that music has the power to touch the body, heart and soul -especially live music. I love reading stories of how music is used to help improve the quality of life for injured or ill people. I also read that when music is played in the nursery of premature babies, these babies grew faster and had less complications than other preemies.
Great resource on using live music to improve the quality of life.
“Rhythm and harmony enter most powerfully into the inner most part of the soul and lay forcible hands upon it” — Plato

Some people love to keep their wedding ceremony very traditional. Everything from the church to the music is just as their mother’s or grandmother’s was. But occasionally we have clients who start their own tradition.
When considering what music you will march down the aisle to, what about stepping outside of the box and away from tradition? A few weeks back on The Bachelor, they had aired Jason and Polly’s wedding from the previous season’s match up.The music that was played was an acoustic version of Some Where Over the Rainbow.
When it comes to your wedding, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box, right down to every little detail.
