On 7 August 2021, Nomads performed for the residents of Edwina Mountbatten House Care Home. Nomads took excerpts from their show ‘The Rock & Roll Years’ and performed those songs to the residents.
The performance took place outside with the residents sitting in their lounge and dining area. Prior to the show there was some concern about the weather, but it certainly would not have stopped the performance going ahead. The rain ceased just before the show started and restarted five minutes after the end of the show.
The residents enjoyed performances of songs such as ‘Rock around the Clock’; ‘The Young Ones’; and ‘Come on Over to my Place’. Many knew the words and were enthusiastically singing along.
Nomads left the residents wanting more and asking for a return visit in the future. We certainly hope to be able to oblige.
After a summer break, Nomads will be performing ‘The Rock & Roll Years’ at other care homes in September.
