I work as a performing singer-guitarist primarily playing for restaurants, hotels, parties and events. I can entertain virtually any audience with a large repertoire of songs from classics to current.
A few years ago, the Activities Director for a number of senior homes hired me to provide entertainment during the Holiday Season; this was a great success. She then suggested I introduce myself to homes and centers around my home on the Westside of Los Angeles, California.
The response has been very positive and I have since performed numerous concerts at some of the finest senior and convalescent care establishments, including many repeat appearances.
Audience members often sing along with their favorite songs, some hoot and holler, others are moved to tears, and many even get up to dance! Caregivers have shared with me the lift in morale and the awakening they observe during–and long after–my performances.
Budgets and groups of any size–even individual performances–are welcome.
I look forward to playing music for you and your loved ones in the future!

—TRAINING & GUIDELINES—
I studied at Berklee College of Music and practice the principles outlined by neurologist Oliver Sacks, M.D. (best known for "Awakenings") in "Musicophilia."
"Music is part of being human."
"Music can also evoke worlds very different from the personal, remembered worlds of events, people, places we have known."
"The inexpressible depth of music, so easy to understand and yet so inexplicable, is due to the fact that it reproduces all the emotions of our innermost being, but entirely without reality and remote from its pain … Music expresses only the quintessence of life and of its events, never these themselves."
"Darwin himself was evidently puzzled, as he wrote in The Descent of Man: ‘As neither the enjoyment nor the capacity of producing musical notes are faculties of the least use to man… they must be ranked among the most mysterious with which he is endowed.’"
"Perception is never purely in the present – it has to draw on experience of the past."
— Oliver Sacks, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain

—TESTIMONIALS—
Thanks for sharing all those great songs seniors love to hear. Residents here at Bixby Knolls Towers love you! They can’t wait to hear you sing all their favorites tunes and taking them back to their good old days! You are AN AWESOME ENTERTAINER! I have known Evyn for years now, and he has always given a great performance! I highly recommend him for all your senior citizen events! Thanks again Evyn! CHEERS TO MANY MORE YEARS TO COME!

During the past five years, I have utilized the musical services of Evyn Charles on many occasions. Mr. Charles has always been dependable and reliable, and provides a well-rounded program for my residents.
Evyn’s talent is appreciated by all who listen, and I am often asked to have him return. Not only is he musically talented but his engagement of the audience sets him a notch above many of the entertainers who perform in Senior Living Communities.
If you are seeking to hire a knowledgeable, talented, responsible and engaging musician for an upcoming event –whether it be for a special event or regularly scheduled entertainment –I highly recommend Evyn Charles.
