Having it's THIRD successful year!
For more than 58 years on television, The Lawrence Welk Show has come into our homes to entertain us. In this updated 1-man eldercare music show, Singer-Pianist MIKE HUFFMAN takes us on a tour of Welk’s Musical Family: Bob Ralston, Jo Ann Castle, Myron Floren, Jimmy Roberts, Norma Zimmer, Joe Feeney, Ken Delo, Anacani, Henry Cuesta, The Lennon Sisters, Clay Hart, Dick Dale, Larry Hooper, Frank Scott, Guy Hovis & Ralna English, Tom Netherton, and all the other Champagne Music Makers are all highlighted in this 75-minute, 1-man tribute! Hear your favorite Welk songs like Calcutta, I Left My Heart in San Francisco, Beer Barrel Polka, Always, Cumana, Fascination, 12th Street Rag, Tie a Yellow Ribbon, and many more . . .
All the songs have background tracks I created using my two keyboards, to mimic the sounds of the Lawrence Welk Show, and I play and sing on top of these tracks during the live show.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do NOT have DSL or High-Speed Internet, I'd recommend emailing me for a Sample CD. I'll be happy to send you one to listen and share with your residents. Because of the file sizes, the movies will take a long time to download and play at dial-up speeds.
If you are on a PC, please set your browser to use Windows Media Player for the .mov files if you click a sample link, and it doesn't immediately open in a new window to play.
