WHAT THEY SAID:
"My mother-in-law, a former church organist and choir director, could not say enough good things about your song stylings. It is such a gift for the residents to have such high-quality and uplifting performances. We hope to see you again soon."
-- Joe R., Mechanicsburg, PA
“Such a great chemistry they have, and the way they interact with everyone is just fantastic!”
-- Audubon Villa, Lititz, PA
"The residents at The Woods have come to accept you not only as performers, but as part of their family. You bring an openness and understanding of where they are at this juncture in their lives. You make them think, feel, breathe, and (most importantly) accept that they still have a purpose on this earth - to live their lives to the fullest extent each and every day. That is SweetLife - two very beautiful, caring, and amazing people who also happen to be entertainers."

"I have been 'partnering' with Matt and Carol for a couple years now, and they've never disappointed me, or my residents. They are fun, personable, flexible, and HIGHLY professional. I've recently moved from one facility to another, and as soon as I was settled, I 'brought them along' with me! If you have the opportunity to hire SweetLife Music, don't miss out!"
