“The Life and Music of John Lennon” at Roseville Manor, Newark

Tuesday, April 12, 2016, Pear Tree Enterprises (https://peartreeenterprises.wordpress.com/) presented “The Life and Music of John Lennon” which featured Keith Beck (http://www.zigmanbird.com/).

The presentation was fantastic as Keith rocked the house with John Lennon favorites including, “Oh Yoko,” “Norwegian Wood,” “Stand By Me,” and “Imagine.”

Now, perfect example of how healing music is — a room full of people, many with dementia, yet Keith hit the stage and they were singing along. At the end they were all screaming, “Come back every week!” It was absolutely precious. Great audience and a totally rewarding experience!! Keith is an awesome musician, gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes!

One resident was a huge Beatles fan and said she saw them back in the day! Lucky her!

Thanks so much to activities director, Amanda, for having us!
