my dixieland band and brass quintet (that's two groups, not one) play about monthly at retirement homes and nursing homes, and we love it. in our dixie gigs, people get tears in their eyes even, and line up after to tell us stories about how they used to go dance to these old tunes when they were teenagers, etc. and they know all the words.
the drawback is some of these places are kinda grim, but you know you're brightening people's day when you're there.
