 One More Time is Larry and Melissa Beahm, the Musical Comedy Variety Duo. Traveling throughout the country, One More Time focuses on providing excellent music and tasteful humor for the boomers and seniors of our great United States. “Fifty-five plus” communities, RV parks, churches and senior centers hire One More Time to perform their musical comedy variety shows: professional yet personal Vaudevillian/Broadway/ Vegas-type shows! They each learned their craft in very different ways.
 
Witnessing many performances while working for almost a decade on cruise ships and as live-in administrators for an Independent Senior Living chain, One More Time gained valuable insight into what the seniors most enjoyed and needed – upbeat, happy and funny!

Larry sings and plays keyboard with the best of them, and has been playing Classic Rock since long before it was called Classic Rock. Melissa, on the other hand, is classically trained, but heavily influenced by the balladeers of the ‘70s.

Larry started playing the piano by ear at the age of three. He started classical lessons at ten and has been playing paying gigs since the age of thirteen. His path has led
 








him through diverse musical combinations, performing for and with people in the industry ranging from Johnny Cash to Rick Braun to .38 Special.  All the drums, bass, and other orchestration you hear were recorded by Larry—no store-bought karaoke!

Melissa also took piano lessons from age seven to thirteen, but she finally found her trump suit in her senior year of high school—her voice. She attended the music program at Mansfield University in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, graduating with the coveted Janice Baker Award for Outstanding Vocalist and a bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy.

So when these two got together, it became an interesting challenge to mesh their musical talents. They found common ground in the show tunes, standards and novelty songs of the ‘20s through the ‘70s. Whether the audience is 40 or 140 years old, One More Time will bring the show you’ve been looking for.

After their hour-long performance, you and your friends will be smiling and asking them to come back ...
"One More Time!"

Larry and Melissa actually had the pleasure of playing the same retirement living community every month for over three years.  You could say they almost lived there! By the time they left in September of 2007, they had developed a real rapport with the residents of Fleming Point.
After playing classic rock for years (long before it was called "classic"!), Larry went on to play piano bars and lounges before joining up with Melissa.  With her classical and opera background and training, it was inevitable that they ended up doing songs like "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?"
One More Time has developed a versatile repertoire specializing in music for seniors, but capable of pulling out the pop stops for the "almost" seniors.  If you remember the Beatles, James Taylor, Carole King, and Jimmy Buffett, you're old enough to enjoy One More Time!
 
 
As two-thirds of the 60's and 70's rock/pop band Off Center, Melissa and Larry worked on cruise ships for almost four years.  
 
 
 
 
 
Says Larry: "I've been to Europe several times, Alaska, Hawaii twice, but I've never been to Iowa! -- No coastline!"  So now, Melissa, Larry, and Henry are touring the US via their RV.
