“Darren has been playing for our residents for years!  He doesn’t just perform for them, he engages them!  To me that is the most important part of his job.  Darren talks with the residents and has developed relationships with them through his music.  His rates are reasonable and he is personable.”— Clare Wood, Healthy Lifestyles Director, Elmcroft of Brentwood, TN.  615-837-8006

“Four years ago, I was very fortunate to speak to Darren and arrange for a performance at the retirement community where I worked.  He was the favorite of many of the residents there.  Besides having a great voice, he also plays guitar professionally.  Darren was wonderful with the residents and knew many of them by name.  He played their requests frequently and requested everyone to sing along.  He came every month for four years and brightened the days for many, including myself.  I surely miss him and will ask him to sing in the future whenever possible.”— Janie Craig, formerly Activity Director at Sycamores Terrace, Nashville, TN & currently Activities Director at McKendree Village, Hermitage, TN.  615-476-9991

“Darren Long has been a long-time entertainer at The Bridge at Columbia, and the residents look forward to his visits and love to hear his music.  While performing his music, Darren takes time to connect with the residents one-on-one and interact with them as he sings.  He brings pure joy to the lives of the elderly as they reminisce about the days gone by.”— Christy Thrasher, Lifestyles Services Director, The Bridge at Columbia, TN.  931-381-6265
