July 6, 2018    Royal Palms of Largo - To all Music Lovers: 

It is my pleasure to recommend a fantastic group called The Hatley Band from Sarasota, FL. I have worked here at Royal Palms for over 13 years. It is an Independent Living Senior Community and we bend over backward to keep our residents entertained. My job title is Director of Performing Arts, and I do all the booking for entertainment for our special events. In March, of this year, we planned a WESTERN WEEK. I was a little skeptical, wondering if people from 70 -100 years old would enjoy a Country Western Band. My skepticism was quickly put to rest. The residents dressed up in Western clothes, got up and danced, and they LOVED the Band! The musicians are consummate professionals. They even sang a very special rendition of “Happy Birthday” to a prospect who was getting ready to move into our facility – something she will never forget. So, whether you are a Country Western fan or not, you will not be disappointed if you hire The Hatley Band. We are having them back in October – that’s how much our people loved them.

Sincerely, Jim Abegglen



The Hatley Band ... Amazing, Awesome and Fun. They don't just sing to the crowd. They sing with the crowd and everyone is involved. I have them at Mangrove Mama's often. (wish it could be weekly).
