  1. Suzie Q is amazing we use her DVD’s in our Adult Day Program and we can’t tell you how much our Dementia clients enjoy your music and style. I first found you on U tube but have sinced bought many of you products. you are a fantastic lady we love you and you are a big part of our family here at the Day Program.

    Thank You, Nicole from Toronto, Ontario

      • Hi Susie I’m wondering will your DVD work in Ireland would love to get move and groove for my
        Clients thanks
        Mary ☘️

        • Hi Mary,

          Yes I do believe the DVD will work on any DVD player that has been built within the last 10 years. I have only had trouble once, and we learned that it was because their player had been set to only play a certain DVD region code. Most players now will play all region codes. Susie 🙂

  2. Hi Suzie
    I’m a long term devotee! I work in two facilities with seniors (and I’m often close to the most senior in the group!) We all love Moove and Groove and now we are actually able to sing inside again here in Sydney, Australia, I’m wondering if you have made any new Move and Grooves. We like the sing and dance combination. On a quick look through your range it seems you have only made the one?

    • Hi Bev! I remember connecting with you years ago because you live down under! I’m so glad to hear you and your senior friends are enjoying Move & Groove! I must admit I think it’s one of the best sing-alongs I’ve done so far. And yes, I have plans to do another in the future. I’ll keep you posted. Thank you so much for your comments. Susie Q 🙂

  3. We have had you sing for our seniors for many years. The words on the TV make it very easy for everyone to follow along. We enjoy all of your DVD’s, our residents favorite DVD is “70’s Sizzle”. Thanks for bringing music into our community.
    – Dufferin Care Centre, Coquitlam, BC, Canada

  4. I have enjoyed very much the last year and a half watching Susie on zoom each week
    I also volunteer at a nursing home and play music each week so I know how much the residence love the music
    Thanks Susie for all you do I know you can’t help but be blessed each time you play for them thanks a bunch

    • Thank you Wesley. It is so wonderful to have you join me each week. From one musician to another, we both know the magic that music brings to the elderly. It truly is the universal language. Susie

  5. Hi Susie,

    We just tried out your new DVD “Move and Groove” and our residents absolutely LOVED IT! We hope that you will put out similar DVD’s to this one as not only did they love the dancing part, they were belting out the tunes right along with you!

  6. Our residents at Birchmere Retirement Residence in Orillia, ON, Canada have long enjoyed your Sing-Along DVDs, Susie Q! They have been a saving grace during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your most recent Move & Groove DVD was a huge hit as well and is requested often in lieu of our regular visiting exercise program! Please keep ’em comin’!

    I should also mention that we love joining you every week for your live-stream sing-along via Zoom & Facebook. It’s something everyone here at Birchmere looks forward to, residents and staff alike. We cannot THANK YOU ENOUGH! <3

  7. Susie,
    I hope you know that your are our “live” SUNSHINE every Wednesday! You and ( your DVD’s) are also our lifesaver’s when our Special Care Unit gets a little overwhelming!
    Thank you is just not enough!
    Catherine and the Sisters in Framingham, MA

  8. Susie,Both the residents & myself love your Sing-A Longs but this new movement DVD and sing a long is your best yet. It’s so much fun and easy movements to follow. You have outdone yourself. We look forward to more of these videos in the future. Thankyou! Thankyou! Karen – Fieldstone Marysville,WA. USA

    • Thank you Karen! I didn’t see your review until now. I appreciate you joining me every week for our live-stream sing-along! Say hello to your residents for me! Susie

  9. We have always enjoyed our Sing-Along Susie Q DVD’s, but had no idea how pertinent they would become during 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic. The DVD’s continue to provide our resident’s some sunshine during dark days, and her weekly sing-along stream over zoom is something we here at Twin Oaks look forward to weekly! THANK YOU SUSIE Q!

  10. Susie, our residents of all levels of dementia/alertness love the first video we purchased from you. We see more involvement by residents in singing along than any other type of media we can offer them with exception of live music. Keep more coming because we are going to purchase more of them very soon. One resident suggested that since you have already created the 50’s and 70’s that you might consider some of the more upbeat music of the 60’s for your next music video. Thank you so much for making more modern, responsive music videos and for your precious time.

    • Hi Jessie! Thank you for your comment. It is so great to hear how responsive your residents are. It really reinforces why I do what I do. ?

      You might want to check out Ramblin’ Rose. It has a few peppy songs from the ’60s!

  11. Our residents absolutely love your DVDs. We have them all and we want more! Keep them coming! – Redstone Highlands, Greensburg, PA, USA
