CLASS actions lawyer Floyd Thursby has quit the courts to take a stab in the entertainment industry: and he's chosen an unusual way to promote his newly completed album.
His promotional tour for the album, To those in flames, will include retirement villages and aged care facilities across Melbourne.
The inspiration for the launch tour came about from charity work Floyd has done entertaining aged care residents.
"They're a fascinating group of people to spend time with; they've done amazing things and they've contributed so much to their communities over the years," he said. "They deserve to get something good back and it's a real privilege to play for them."
Performances at nursing homes are not public events, but if you'd like to catch Floyd in action, he'll be at La Niche in Fitzroy on August 22 (8pm) and Handle Bar in Bendigo on September 14 (7.30pm).
As well as his own songs, Floyd sings rock 'n' roll, pop, swing, country and jazz from the 1930s-70s, so expect great songs from the likes of Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra and Gene Pitney.
