The Summer Wind 

Which, we have had early in this late Spring Season. The weather has been wonderful. Flowers are planted and growing, roses are blooming and our summer oasis is ready.  Things are heating up! Weather and the calendar! Sounds good to me!

I will say this, our calendar is not at 120 performances as it was last year and of course, I will remind myself that close to 100 of those performances were cancelled. Thank you Covid, but now, it's the world's turn to make it's comeback. We are getting ready.

In the month of May, we had a performance along with an Ice Cream Social! The residents and the staff we so excited, it had been 16 months since we had been there to perform. Just before our Memorial Day weekend, we had a Spring Bash!! Also, a 17 month absencee however, the residents loved their evening! The food smelled delicious, bright spring colors, table linens and flowers!

We started the performance to honor our Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. There were some who lost a brother, a son, a spouse....a reminder to all of us that Freedom isn't free... The residents talked about the New Years Eve we were supposed to have with them...Maybe this year!!!

June normally is not a busy performance month due to weddings, graduations, Father's Day...however, nothing is normal yet...so we wait. We have a couple of bookings for June, let's wait and see how things come together.

We are vaccinated and many of our clients, their residents are vaccinated, which is leading us down the road of performing again.. Vaccination is an individual choice. Please stay healthy and we hope and pray that everyone has a wonderful summer! 

Always A Song and A Smile

Happy Spring! 

I do apologize for not posting in quite sometime. However, as you know, there hasn't been much to post. Actually, we do not have much news to share at this point, however, I thought I would take a moment and say Hello!

Our website continues to be viewed, which is great! Thank you. 

Here is 2021 thus far...Well, Happy Spring, the sun is shining and everyone is healthy! We're off to a great start!

There is promise in the 2021 calendar. Activity Directors are being cautious, apprehensive and most importantly, optimistic! We work very closely with all of our clients.

January and February were silent, we watch, wait and listen. 

We did have one performance on the first day of Spring. Everyone was just so excited to see us. CDC guidelines, temperature checks, social distancing, all in motion. We thank our Lifestyle Directors for all they do.  Without a doubt 2020 and going into 2021 has been a very unpredictable journey.

We have one performance coming up in April and we are very much looking forward to seeing our friends. It has been 15 months since our last visit.

I am optimistic, however, also realistic in my opinion that we will not see much before the summer months. I cannot help but feel that outdoor performances this summer will be the beginning to hopefully a song filled 2021.  

I would say, although very slow, it seems that we are going in the right direction. As things pick up, I promise to blog more often and keep you informed. DHL Entertainment is alive and well!

Stay healthy, enjoy Springtime and let's all together continue to work towards a pandemic free world.

Always A Song and A Smile, 

Daniel Henry

 

A Thanksgiving Greeting 

As Thanksgiving approaches, we would like to say we hope everyone enjoys their day, whatever you are doing. We are very thankful to all of our clients who have worked so hard this year to bring their residents some sense of normalcy and joy.

We had two performances in November. One was a Veterans Day dinner honoring all who have served in our armed forces. It was a wonderful evening filled with joy and emotion. We thank all who have served.

Our second performance was a Thanksgiving Dinner for some of our seniors. Another enjoyable evening! It looked and smelled absolutely delicious!. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and music selections.Thank you for having us!

December is light on bookings due to the pandemic. We have four performances scheduled including a New Years Eve Celebration. All others have been cancelled. Usually December is a very busy time for us. We are very flexible with our clients and completely understand that this may change. We hope to be able to bring some holiday cheer!

We all have so much to be thankful for. Many blessings to all as we move towards the end of 2020.

Autumn has arrived! 

We haven't posted in quite sometime. We hope everyone is staying healthy and practicing all CDC guidelines! We had a marvelous summer weather wise, However, now, there is a crispness in the air and the leaves are falling. 

There is not much to tell you, other than the majority of performances due to Covid have been cancelled. We had three in September, two were outdoor concerts. Both were beautiful days and the weather certainly cooperated. We just updated our October calendar, and we have one indoor performance that as of today will still take place.  

Speaking with many of our clients, there is not much optimism going into the rest of the year. Usually by this time, our calendar is booked for the following year. We will not be addressing bookings for 2021 until January and we will see what the Covid climate is at that time. February is usually jam packed with Valentine Day celebrations.

For so many, It is going to take time to recover from the impact  due to Covid. We miss all of our senior friends and their families. We have lost many since March and didn't get to see them and hug them one last time. This makes us so very sad.

Please stay healthy and be cautious in all you do.

Always A Song and A Smile, 

Daniel Henry 

Covid 19 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! There is not much to report at this time other than we keep rescheduling performances and hope for some sort of resemblance of normalcy. All shows for March, April and May thus far have been pushed into the second half of 2020. It's going to be very busy, pushing 10 months into six. To be candid, we are not feeling optimistic about June....only time will tell.

Our scheduled Broadway performances have been moved to October and November. The Rochester Fringe Festival is also in a holding pattern at this time. We await information. 

We wanted to say hello and let everyone know that we are following all CDC guidelines, practicing social distancing and wearing our masks. Everyone please follow guidelines so we can all get back out there!

Always A Song and A Smile.

Daniel Henry and Staff

 

 

 

 

 

Covid 19 

Hello to everyone! With Covid 19, as we have cancelled and asked to cancel performances, we have been working closely with all of our clients to reschedule performances. We have moved our Broadway Show from March and April to October and November. The lights will shine on Broadway!!!

Please know that your health and safety is the most important thing to us.  Please keep all of our seniors safe!  Please feel free to contact us with any concerns that you may have. We are here for you!

Best wishes

Happy New Year! 

Here we are, This is 2020! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! It was a very busy quarter and the month of December was filled with seventeen performances!  We want to thank everyone for a fantastic year, we wrapped up 2019 with 119 performances! Thank you for your continued support!

We are a bit behind and trying to catch our breath! We have already kicked off 2020 with a private party this past Saturday. It was fantastic! Great people and we just know we will see them again! A gentleman decided to give his family a Christmas gift of dining and entertainment! It was great! Such a wonderful idea. Everyone enjoyed their dinner as well as the music.

January is a recovery month, a little slow starting, however, we are kicking up in February with our "Month of Love" . There is some limited availability.

Coming in March and April, back to back months of Broadway performances! So many seniors have asked about Broadway music, the time has come to deliver! It's going to be great! There is very limited availability, if this is an interest to you, please do not hesitate to contact us!

All our performances for 2020 up to this point have been added to our website! Please stop in and say hello! We would love to see you!

Always A Song and A Smile,

Daniel Henry

The music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others.  Daniel Henry is proud to be a crooner and couldn't be more honored to sing the songs of these great artists

Would love to hear from you
