    The McKinney Washtub Two




    The McKinney Washtub Two



    We are a husband and wife duo, “The McKinney Washtub Two.” We are into our 3rd year touring as full-time professional entertainers (though we’ve been performing together for about 9 years.) We do an Americana music and humor show (heavy on the humor!), and play venues all over the country; fairs, festivals, coffee houses, concerts in the park as well as RV Rallys and resorts. We do a very specific show for the retirement community that’s lively, upbeat and gently interactive, that will delight and stimulate your residents.!







    We do a variety of material in a variety of styles including ragtime, blues, folk, country bluegrass, ww II songs, and old timey gospel if appropriate. We are sensitive to a diverse population and will work with you for special events, holidays and themes.







    Whitt plays the guitar and Judy plays the washtub bass (in tune!), rhythm washboard, mandolin, flute, bodhran, ukelele and a fun array of percussion instuments. Though we use some traditional instruments we are not a hillbilly band, rather more of a variety show.



    We always invite residents up afterwards to try the washtub bass, if only to pluck the string if that’s all they are able to do.(We’ve had more than a few activity directors give a whirl as well!)







    If you are looking for something a little different with a positve flavor we’re your entertainers! We are a great addition to family night and outreach programs. When we are asked to play a memory care facility we do a slower, gentler paced program, with more of the pretty music rather than humorous. (Sometimes we pass out rhythm instruments if appropriate.)







    We travel constantly (our standard year has us visiting 10 states.) so we are sometimes in your location several times a year. Usually we are in northern states for the summer and southern for the winter.) You can always check our “gigs” page for the current schedule, give us a call. We’re happy to answer questions.







    We try to book at least 2 months ahead for your convenience, but we can also book a year or more in advance, depending on our route.



    Keep in mind if we are in your area and you’ve had a cancellation we are happy to fill in on short notice if we can.



    Our retirement rate is half our usual fee, for up to an hour. There are several factors that can be to your benefit if you don’t have the budget : If we can book another facility close by, if we can work without setting up the sound system (in other words if you have a small population and room) or if there are multiple facilites we can play in your community, and we’ve been know to be lured by the offer of a nice meal!







    Currently our route: MI, IN, KY, TN, GA, FL, ALA, MS, ARK & TX.

    Top National Touring Entertainer



    My name is Dave WhiteWolf Trezak . I am a national recording artist and solo concert performer.



    I provide a musical program at senior facilities on a nationwide basis. We are all familiar with the positive effect that music has on the emotional well being of young and old. I provide a one hour, upbeat, polished musical and storytelling program especially tailored to bring a smile and toe tapping from even your hardest to please residents. I sing and play multiple instruments.



    The program consists of songs from many styles and eras. My mother was Native so I include American Indian songs as well as bring various Indian props of interest to illustrate. I also dress in various forms of modern Indian clothing styles. This in itself has been an entertaining curiosity for most.



    I provide a dramatic concert presentation!



    An important part of the program is songs on the native flute. These emotion evoking melodies are both inspiring and relaxing. A real popular part of the program as you will see. I put a lot of heart in a very special dramatic tribute to veterans as the centerpiece of the show. In addition, my show includes classic rock, country, oldies and just about anything that gets things moving and brings a smile!



    It’s disappointingly commonplace for performers at senior facilities to be worn out or retired incompetent amateurs. I’m a top national performer in my best years! My program comes fresh from the concert venues , Casino Showrooms and Cruise Ships where it's all about the show! Your residents deserve no less. In addition, I always bring the finest sound equipment money can buy, arrive early to set up and am willing to do what it takes to help make your event memorable !



    The question most asked is….how much does all this cost? Nothing good is completely without cost, but you’ll find my fee as low as it can possibly be with gas prices they way they are. Doesn’t matter how good a program is if the facility can’t afford it! I like to say affordability is my middle name. If necessary, I have a professional demo available for review. MANY references are available.



    Over the last several years I’ve performed for at least a million residents. Their only complaint has been that I can’t return as often as they’d like! How can a million senior Americans be wrong?



    Please consider contacting me.



    Sincerely, Dave WhiteWolf Trezak
