Sunny Side Singers

Greetings of the Season!

We’re excited to take our Holiday Tour 2017 as we sing with and for the folks at: Morning Star, Parkwood Estates, The Winslow, Rigden Farm, The Worthington, McKenzie Place, the Railroad Society, and Oakbrook II.

Please join us for The Garden of Lights performance on Friday, December 15th from 6:00-8:00pm. An enchanted evening with glittering garden lights, hot chocolate and traditional holiday songs will make for a fun evening for you and your family. Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Holidays





We’re the SunnySide Singers of Northern Colorado; We’ve been singing together since 2009 and loving every minute of it!  We sing a variety of songs from the 1920’s through the 1960’s that you know and love! Our audiences always join in with singing and clapping…and sometimes dancing.

Our favorite audiences are seasoned seniors living in special places like The Worthington, The Winslow, The Wexford, Rigden Farms Senior Living Center, Parkwood Estates, and Lemay Avenue Health and Rehab Center.  They welcome us back warmly several times each year!

Birthday Party Sing-alongs! We are now happy to say that we also joyfully join in to help celebrate birthdays for elders of all ages! Here’s a testimonial from one of our celebrants who turned 102 this year!

"The Sunny Side Singers helped make Bea’s 102nd birthday party fun and special. We were so happy to have them help us celebrate her with songs and dancing with Art to the “Beer Barrel Polka”. Bea and all the partiers thoroughly enjoyed their performance. We would definitely recommend them for any type of gathering.”
--The Family of Bea Ducharme
