Littlest Big Band is the husband and wife duo of Bob Farley and Lynn Perdzock. They have been arranging and playing music of the 1920s to the 1960s (and sometimes before and beyond) since 2011, and since 2012 have played over 200 shows a year.
"[Littlest Big Band] music is just what residents love to hear."
--Melody, Resident Programs Coordinator, Sterling House Fort Myers, FL
Their shows capture the attention of listeners, engaging them with tidbits of information about each song arranged into thematic set lists, such as traveling, love songs, movies, patriotic, Christmas, and Route 66.
The songs performed by Littlest Big Band bring back memories of artists like Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Dean Martin, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Sr., Ella Fitzgeralg, Elvis and many others.
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'
Bob and Lynn play their guitars and mandolin live, which gives their shows an extra sense of intimacy and excitement. And when the performance is over, the couple enjoys spending time thanking and conversing with residents, because "we sometimes hear interesting stories from folks who have actually met the stars of those bygone days, like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Quite a few people have had personal experience with music in their lives, and we often learn a lot from them."
"You guys are perfect." --Tina, Activities Department, Birchwood Care Center Hamilton, OH
Pricing for nursing homes and assisted/independent/memory care communities starts at between $125 and $150 an hour, depending on the length of the show, the size of the audience, and distance to the show. We reduce our fees for facilities able to book multiple shows through the year, or who can book two or more shows at different locations in the same community.
Most shows run 55 to 60 minutes, but can be as short as 30 minutes to as long as three hours. Bob can perform a solo show of the same type of 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
