The Entertainers are men who love to sing. We are of all ages, from various walks of life and with different levels of musical experience, from novice to expert.
We embrace the love of providing one-hour singing presentations to Retirement Residences and Long-term Care Homes in the Burlington, Oakville and west Mississauga regions.
New members quickly feel a wonderful sense of belonging and a satisfying feeling of outreach to our senior community. Learning tracks and printed song sheets combined with a supportive atmosphere at rehearsals, provide an easy and established path for new members to become an integral part of the chorus.
The Entertainers invite you to come out and sing with us! We rehearse every Monday evening starting at 7:00 pm and finishing at 9:30. Exceptions are on statutory holidays when we may switch to the Tuesday night following. We begin every rehearsal with vocal warm-ups, and then we practise songs in our repertoire. You can watch, listen or sing along, it's easy to have fun and we will take extra care to help you fit in! Invitations are not required, parking is free, and fellowship is plentiful. Send our VP- Membership and Marketing an email so that we can have someone greet you at the door.

Diana Coen (the DC in DC3) is an accomplished singer and pianist, and a founding member of the vocal group Sidebar. She has a love of gospel and jazz, and has shared that love with Sidebar audiences for over 16 years. John MacKenzie is DC3's guitarist, and Bill McKinlay the bassist. The three formed DC3 in 2016 to further explore their common interest in ragtime, jazz, and the “Great American Songbook”.
