Listening to music stimulates the brain and boosts emotional wellbeing, both of which are crucial for people over 65, and enjoying music in a live setting offers the additional bonus of potential socialization with family and friends. The Mississauga home care experts at Home Care Assistance have put together a list of 4 local music venues seniors are likely to find appealing.
1. Bier Markt
This club at 55 City Centre Drive hosts a Weekend Music Series featuring a variety of musicians and bands on Fridays and Saturdays. Seniors can enhance their mood while watching entertainers like Southbound Soul and Lindsay Brohan performing their music, which ranges from pop to the blues.
2. Spice Lounge and Tapas
Located at 52 Lakeshore Road, this stylish lounge offers live music that includes musicians playing Spanish tunes on the guitar every Sunday starting at 9pm in a welcoming, cozy atmosphere. Aside from providing fabulous music, the Spice Lounge also serves incredible food and drinks seniors can enjoy before the music starts or during the performance. Seniors with minor physical challenges will appreciate that this venue offers both traditional seating and cozy sofa chairs for added comfort.
