Local singing duo takes seniors down memory lane with a “sentimental journey”

Debbie Smith Wagner of North Sewickley and Ken Doerbecker of Wexford have roots in musical theatre and music production, and now they are bringing nostalgia to life by performing pieces of musical history for seniors.

The duo puts on shows at nursing and personal care homes, skilled nursing facilities and retirement communities, as well as private parties, charity events and parades. Their performances are an interactive experience that bring joy to older audiences through vintage songs, dancing, period costumes from earlier decades, and storytelling, often centered around special themes based on the seasons or holidays.

Deb and Ken currently present their nostalgic show at Concordia Lutheran Ministries, Vincentian Health, Passavant Retirement & Health, The Keenagers, Zelienople Historical Society, Zelienople Borough and other places around town.
