Welcome to Harvey Minchin's Shows Page
See bottom of page for sound demos

Are you constantly on the lookout for quality entertainment for your clients or residents? An entertainer with the right selection of music can provide a very enjoyable experience that everyone will be talking about for months to come.  

With over 40 years of playing music, Ive provided entertainment for thousands of people over the years. Through my experience performing as a solo act, with small ensembles, big bands and doing disc jockey work, Im able to provide a pleasing mix of songs for the audience at each event. Ive developed several Shows that have gone over very well at nursing homes, rehabilitation and assisted living facilities, and senior communities that I know your residents will really enjoy. I have numerous shows, lasting between 60 and 90 minutes in length, depending on the event, that provide great live music mixed with light banter between songs with some trivia/facts about the artists or songs. I usually perform solo for these shows but a duo, trio or full band, as well as disc jockey services, are available for larger parties or dances.

I have numerous shows available and each time I entertain at a place, the audience will be treated to different songs, which keep the shows entertaining and unique when Im there. Below Ive listed some of the shows I currently perform, and more are in the works. Custom shows can be created upon request. For these shows, its me playing my acoustic guitar and singing. If the room has a tuned piano that is available for my use, there are additional songs that can be added to the show since I could switch between playing the guitar and piano.

All The Best This show features a nice variety of music from big band favorites, pop/rock from the 50s and 60s, some country and more.  The majority of the songs are from artists like Frank Sinatra, Ben E. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Bob Dylan and The Beatles.

Country Legends Fans of singers such as Willie Nelson, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Rogers & John Denver love this selection of classic country songs.

Through The Years A look at the history of popular music starting with the big band days and working our way through the 60s. Entertaining and educational as the development and changes in various styles of music are mentioned and showcased.

Sounds of Summer Music from the 50s through the 80s provide so many great, fun, summer songs from artists like Jan & Dean, The Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffett. These songs will have the audience dancing in the aisles or in their seats. From the California surf to Margaritaville and down Under the Boardwalk. And what is summer without baseball and everyone loves singing along with Take Me Out To The Ballgame.

Good Old Rock & Roll Music of the 50s and 60s was really rocking and this show features great rock & roll classics from artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Chubby Checker, The Rolling Stones and more. Since the songs are played on an acoustic guitar, the spirit of the rock classics shines through the mellow sound.

Songs For America Perfect for events around Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day or just to get everyone in a patriotic mood. This show features songs about this great country of ours from Kansas City to Route 66, Surfing USA to God Bless the USA, and so many other great songs that show our patriotism and celebrate our great nation. A special Armed Forces medley showcases songs from the different branches of the service that always goes over great, especially with the veterans in attendance.

Sing-A-Long Favorites Everybody loves to sing along with songs they know and they always bring back such wonderful memories. The audience is encouraged to sing-a-long with favorite songs by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Elvis and more - including a nice selection of Broadway show tunes.

Christmas/Holiday Holiday classics, traditional carols, and fun secular songs provide the perfect holiday mood for listening and singing along. Holiday luncheons, dinners, parties, tree decorating or caroling room to room, these songs bring so much joy and cheer to all at this special time of the year.

If your event has a theme that requires special music, my disc jockey song selection can provide a wide variety of music for any occasion, such as: Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, Mardi Gras, Cinco de Mayo, various patriotic themes, Christmas/Holiday, Halloween, Easter, Luaus, Sock Hops, Big Band dances and more.
