It can be hard to find entertainment that’s suitable for Seniors.  

Jon offers programs for Independent and Assisted Living, as well as for Memory Care and Group Homes.  

  • Memory Care / Group Homes

      Basic impromptu performance, playing nostalgic, popular songs, with maybe a classical tune tucked somewhere in the middle, on either piano or accordion, or both. 

  • Independent Living / Assisted Living
  1. Background “Atmosphere” Music - for casual and festive events, featuring a variety of styles on either piano or accordion, or both.
  2. Featured 1-Hour Program - Having performed on 40 ships, on a dozen luxury cruise lines, traveling to over 100 countries, Jon does a simpler version of his cruise ship show (without the orchestra!), called “Songs From The World Cruise”.  It features Broadway, Ragtime, International, Classical and more tunes, performed on both piano and accordion, with commentary/anecdotes about the music, composers, and various ships and people.
  • When Jon comes to entertain the troops at senior living centers, it's always a hit!
  • ADDRESSING YOUR COVID-RELATED CONCERNS:  Jon Persson has been Covid-Vaccinated.  Certification available upon request.

"If you have not had this gentleman, call him - HE IS WONDERFUL. He played the piano and the accordion, but the thing that made him special was his interaction with our residents. The choice of music was wonderful, and of the right time period. Call him as soon as you can - he is a wonderful entertainer and would work great with your adventure travel day, too. Jon Persson out of Seattle Washington (he will be back here in November) stayed here and sat with our residents for dinner and breakfast. I highly recommend him."  - Patricia A., Enrichment Coordinator, Sterling Court, Deltona, Florida

Jon provided our residents with an outstanding performance. Also have to mention, he saved our event once our original vendor cancelled. He agreed to perform for us two days away from the date. Thank you Jon, we look forward to working with you again soon!” - Daniel M., Activities Director, Lake Seminole Square, Tampa, Florida

"We at Bridge Park just enjoyed a wonderful piano & accordion concert from Jon Persson.  It was very well attended.  I think your residents would really enjoy his presentation . . . . Check out his website." Brooke B., Community Manager, Bridge Park, Seattle, Washington 

"We had the gentleman below perform this weekend!  He was great! Very versatile. Very engaging to the audience as well.  He stayed and played some Russian music for one of our residents (she was born in Russia) after he was done with our show!  He is a snowbird.  I plan on having him back when next he is in town!  He leaves in April so if you have room in your schedule/budget he would be well worth getting in!"  - Patricia C., Enrichment Coordinator, Lake Ridge Village, Eustis, Florida
