Engaging, Entertaining, Educating
Music of the American Standards comes alive when Bob Farley and Lynn Perdzock present their Littlest Big Band show.

Playing guitars and mandolin, Bob and Lynn perform tunes that were made household favorites by singers like Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Dean Martin, and Ella Fitzgerald. Their fresh arrangements make the songs at once new and yet recognizable.
"[Littlest Big Band] music is just what residents love to hear."
--Melody, Resident Programs Coordinator, Sterling House
Fort Myers, FL
Set lists are usually connected to themes, making each well-known song part of a story about movies, places, or events, giving them even more relevance to the audience.

And when the performance is over, Lynn and Bob enjoy spending a little time visiting with residents. Most shows run 55 to 60 minutes, but can be as short as 30 minutes to as long as three hours.
Oft-heard comments from residents
'This is our music.'
'We knew the words, we sang every song.'
'You're the best act we've seen.'
'Your voices blend so well together.'
'When can you come back?'
'Your volume was perfect, so enjoyable'
Pricing for nursing homes and assisted/independent/memory care communities averages $125 to $150 an hour, depending on the length of the show and travel time, and is always negotiable. Reduced fees are offered to facilities and venues able to book multiple shows through the year, or who can book two or more shows at different locations in the same community on the same day. Bob performs a solo show of the same great music for a reduced fee.
"Bob Farley engages my residents with his array of songs from various time periods and genres. They leave his performances with smiles and requests to have him back soon."
--Linda Shaver, Life Enrichment Director, The Woodlands of Middletown
Middletown, OH
And, Bob and Lynn are both registered vendors with many national care-giving organizations, thus making the paperwork trail much easier to navigate.
Show Themes
Developing themes around groups of songs allows Littlest Big Band to add different historical and interesting facts relating to the songs each time they're played so each presentation is fresh and brings back new memories. This allows the duo to spread out the wealth of information about the songs over the course of weeks and months.
The Route 66 Show
As its name indicates, this show focuses on Route 66, from its beginning as a collection of military trails of the 1850s, to its official designation in 1926, to its decommissioning in 1985. A lot of things happened during those years and a lot of songs were sung. It's a story that touches almost everyone.
Songs on the Big Screen
Songs often help tell the stories in movies, and many of the standards, with their rich lyrics and timeless melodies, continue to be used to do that. Tunes like "As Time Goes By" become part of the memory of Casablanca, while movies like Space Cowboys benefit from the timelessness of "Fly Me to the Moon."
Traveling Tunes
Places and how to get to them are the meat of this show, from walking to bicycling to cars, trains, planes, and boats, the cities and countries and even planets available to travel to...well, someday.
The Splendor of Love
Most songs are about some aspect of love, so it's an easy matter to develop a setlist of love songs for Valentine's Day, Mother's and Father's Day, Grandparent's Day...you get the idea. Lynn and Bob like to feature them the whole month of February.
By the Numbers (or the Letters)
Going through the songs by date or by the alphabet is an interesting way to show off the tunes and the decades they were written and performed.
Christmas, Holidays, Patriotic
The Christmas season is a special time when carols, hymns, and other standards of the season highlight gatherings of friends and families. The patriotic observances, and certain other holidays (St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving) also have a few songs that help to connect with them.
