Paul Horton, Musician/Entertainer

Cambridge, Ontario

519-658-7236 (cell)

I’m Paul Horton, a senior who entertains, often at retirement & nursing homes.  I sing, play guitar, and have a sophisticated drum synthesizer.  I play tunes from the 1920’s to the 90’s and sometimes newer “standards”.  Between songs (and while setting up and tearing down), I enjoy talking with residents.  My Police Information Check and Police Vulnerable Sector Check can be shown on request.  I’m a member of AFM (American Federation of Musicians) Local 226.

I’m self-employed/semi-retired with support that lets me play music whenever I’m scheduled, morning, afternoon, evening, or on the weekend.  My flexible schedule means I’m often available to fill-in for a last minute cancellation.  I carry everything I need, including my chair.  (I do need a 110 volt outlet!)

Here is my “Top 10” playlist (from the more than 400 songs in my repertoire):

All Shook Up (Elvis Presley/1957)

All of Me (Louis Armstrong/1932, Willie Nelson/1978)

Diana (Paul Anka/1957)

Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown (Jim Croce/1973)

Can’t Buy Me Love (The Beatles/1964)

King of the Road (Roger Miller/1965)

Bluebirds Over the Mountain (Ersel Hickey/1957, Beach Boys/1968, Ronnie Hawkins/1965)

Ain’t Misbehavin’ (Fats Waller/1929)

You Are My Sunshine (Jimmie Davis/1939, Gene Autry/1941)
