Simply put… COOLEY is the most Versatile Entertainer in the Pacific Northwest

Entertaining thousands of senior audiences from Seattle to San Francisco to New York City, “COOLEY Show” has become a favorite attraction among senior communities across the country.  His show is a transformative adventure down memory lane, tapping into each listener’s lifelong story inspired by familiar melodies, long-remembered lyrics and genuine sentiment.


COOLEY SHOW BAND concerts and ballroom dance entertainment excites and inspires senior audiences of all ages featuring unforgettable 20th century hit songs from Bing Crosby to Sinatra, Hank Williams, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and more.

COOLEY ’s recipe for success: Two parts Bobby Darin – one part Hank Williams with a splash of Elvis. “It’s a wonderful feeling to see elders light up as I encourage sing-a-long and movement while performing popular music from the 1920s to the 1970s. I think I enjoy it as much as the residents do – it’s fun, engaging and soulful,” says COOLEY .

COOLEY Senior Outreach Program

Cooley Show

There are a large group of people in this country that for the most part have been forgotten, they are the millions of residents of senior homes. COOLEY ’s senior outreach program is being called extraordinary with hundreds of shows performed yearly across the country. 

COOLEY brings back memories through his music. The elder residents are thrilled that a performer of COOLEY ’s experience and quality would take the time to put on these wonderful shows throughout the country.

Look at these facts released by the census bureau:

“Between 2016 and 2050, the United States will experience considerable growth in its older population. In 2050, the population aged 65 and over is projected to be 83.7 million, almost double its estimated population of 43.1 million in 2016. The baby boomers are largely responsible for this increase in the older population.”

The COOLEY Senior Outreach Program is unlike any other initiative existing in America today. COOLEY …ONE OF A KIND

David’s performances are upbeat, unique, and fun. His music takes our residents on a ‘sentimental journey’ through some of best times in their lives. They ‘demand’ that he return time and time again!

David Cooley is one of our residents’ favorites – and they are a discerning crowd. Yesterday, the whole theater was singing along with him. Today, all the residents are reporting to me how much fun they had with all the songs they know and love.
