This summer marks 3 years since Bertie Boater began a new career as an entertainer, after working 30 years in software development. Bertie sings the classic songs of the Great American songbook, accompanying himself playing baritone ukulele. Specializing in the care industry, Bertie now has over 200 clients. These include residential homes, nursing homes, day care centres and sheltered accommodations around Sussex, Kent and Surrey. During summer 2018 Bertie will be performing his 1,000th show !
Bertie takes his audiences on a nostalgic musical journey with his extensive repertoire of over 100 timeless classic songs. Interaction is paramount to Bertie and he encourages involvement by all, with a personal approach and banter that brings lots of smiles and laughter. At Bertie's nursing home clients, in addition to shows, Bertie also offers “private serenades” to bed bound residents – which are always a winner!
