After seeing Nexus in concert some years ago, the Lifestyle Team at Arcare North Lakes had a great idea.
Why not get them here to play for our residents?
The first step was trying to track Nexus down and find their contact details.
Next step, finding a date that worked.
Last but not least, waiting patiently for the day to arrive when Nexus would perform.
At Arcare North Lakes we have a group of residents who are especially passionate about music – remembering all the words from the songs, the jive or rock n roll moves and still getting up to dance with staff.
Nexus is made up of musicians Stephen Fraser and Peter Bigg. Unfortunately, Peter was unable to perform on the day, but Chas Whitling happily took his place for the big performance.
Nexus did not disappoint, playing songs that everyone could sing along to including: Neil Diamond, Slim Dusty, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Neal Sedaka and Marty Robbins.
The theatre was humming with residents singing, dancing, feet tapping and clapping.
There were a lot of big smiles, eyes shining and reminiscing about days gone by.
Everyone is waiting in anticipation for October when Nexus next grace us with their presence and fabulous music.
