Regency Gardens Resident Spotlight: Meet Kurt the Musician!

Dear Regency Friends,

Meet a  most talented musician who is hanging out with us for a little while for some rehabilitative therapy.

Kurt has been  playing the Electric Base Guitar for almost fifty years. When he was a youngster, Kurt took accordion lessons, because in his own words, “my mother insisted on lessons and my father enforced it.” He taught himself to play the piano and then taught himself to play the Electric Base  Guitar. Kurt played with many bands in Little Falls at the local bars and in College Circuits. They specialized in Rock-n-Roll and Rhythm and Blues from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. He said, “As a stable profession, I was a refrigeration mechanic.” His sister brought and hooked up his guitar in his room at Regency Gardens, to give him that home-like feeling that Regency strives to achieve for our residents. Not only did he play for his sister, his brother-in-law and great niece, he entertains our staff and our residents, who look forward to his performances at the facility.

According to Regency Gardens Activity Director Liz Johnson; “Music is the best Medicine”

Truer words were never spoken!
