About Us

THANK YOU! AND PEACE OUT…until next time.

“The 60’s” was a powerful vibe of music, touching personal stories about living in the 60’s and being over the age of 60. Alive & Kickin performed to more than 2,800 people over the two-week run. Every performance was a sell-out audience with multiple standing ovations and many first-time visitors. We are left humbled and inspired. We have heard from many of you –  in emails, after the show and on our Facebook, this was a “MUST SEE” experience that touched hearts of all ages. Many thanks to our amazing sponsors who made this one of our best shows yet, Bloomington Center for the Arts, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, Very Special Arts, Lunds/Bylery’s, Hubbard Broadcasting/myTalk 107.1fm, Dunn & Semington Printers, and most importantly THANK YOU for joining us at the theater and online for the ride. We WILL show the nation that SENIORS ROCK!

“The 60’s”, led by Ivey Award-winning Artistic Director Michael Matthew Ferrell and Co-creator/Music Director Jason Hansen, features Alive & Kickin’s senior rock group.
“Beyond Memorable!”
 “Heartwarming & Inspirational”
An Experience Like No Other.


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.
