Using Ragtime Piano, Banjo, Guitar, Ukulele and Musical Saw, Grant Simpson provides entertainment for Older Adults, Seniors Care Facilities, 55+ Active Living Centres and Seniors functions of all shapes and sizes.
With over 40 years of experience being a full-time vaudevillian, Grant is at ease on stage and he puts his audience at ease.
A little comedy, a little magic, bits and pieces of fascinating history, songs, stories and music – all rolled into a rollicking 45 minute show.
Here is what some Winnipeg Recreation Directors have to say about Grant’s performances:
“Grant Simpson recently led our 55 Plus group on a fun-filled musical romp through the glory days of vaudeville. His talent and ease with multiple instruments is evident as he tells stories of the early days of vaudeville. He weaves jokes and novelty numbers spontaneously into his show while playing ragtime piano, banjo, guitar and even the musical saw. With his engaging and personal manner, he connects easily with any audience, and we can’t wait to invite him back again.”
– Linda Thorlakson, Crescent Fort Rouge 55 Plus Program
“Thank you for recommending Grant. He was a real hit! Many attendees spoke to him afterwards about how much they enjoyed his performance or to ask him about future gigs. He was so popular, he was given a standing ovation!! That hasn’t occurred in over 13 years.” – Kathy Deyman RWTA
“The residents of Riverwood Square love the variety of entertainment that Grant Simpson provides. Grant engages them with musical favorites, Vaudeville music or simple piano background music. We surprised our residents with a Silent Movie theme and we knew which entertainer would captivate our resident’s attention. Grant was a huge hit! He is a skilled piano player and entertains our residents with music and stories.” – Shannon Gaulke, Health & Wellness Director at Riverwood Square
