Alive & Kickin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that features a talented ensemble of rockin senior performers ages 65-91 that entertain multi-generational audiences through popular contemporary music and personal stories. Each performance, whether a large, full-scale production, a corporate event or (our favorite) senior community gig, promises to surprise, move and inspire audiences of all ages. The group is managed and directed by award-winning performing arts professionals.

CoverOur mission is to give voice to seniors through personal story and popular song, empowering its members to entertain and enlighten multi-generational audiences. We hold auditions annually for the group and look for those who are a blend of talent, unique personalities and charisma. An open-mindedness is also a requirement as we explore contemporary genres of music ranging from rock & roll to pop to gospel and Motown as well as topics of all shapes and sizes!

We produce large scale full productions – inter-generational audience, contemporary style in large venues 1-2 times per year. We are also available for touring shows around the tri-state area.

Additionally, our outreach & education program reaches smaller audiences with the same powerful message of inspiration to senior care facilities and schools.
