It can be hard to find entertainment that’s suitable for all ages.  Multi-instrumentalist Jon Persson has entertained on a dozen high-end cruise lines, on 35 luxury ships traveling to over 100 countries.  "The Mini Cruise-Ship Show" is a presentation based on the cabaret variety show he has performed aboard many major cruise lines. The program is a mix of Broadway, Ethnic & Tango favorites, Classical, Ragtime, plus a bit of SING-ALONG!  When Jon comes to entertain the troops at senior living centers, it's always a hit!

  • "Sophisticated and Fun Accordion Entertainment!   Jon really made our Oktoberfest event! The music was spot on and tastefully subtle yet absolutely fun and playful as well. He came dressed in lederhosen and hat and his price was so reasonable and affordable. A class act all the way! I absolutely recommend him to our sister communities and anyone searching for talented and fun musical entertainment. "
    - Robert P., Lifestyle Director, Revel - Palm Desert, Palm Desert, California

  • "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."  - P. Amburgey, Enrichment Coordinator, Sterling Court, Deltona, Florida

  • "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!"  - P. Campbell, Enrichment Coordinator, Lake Ridge Village, Eustis, Florida
