Askins started performing at the age of 14 and has continued for over three decades. Adept in a variety of musical styles, his dynamic and expressive vocal style and virtuosity on the guitar have earned him a positive reputation in northern and central Illinois.

His passion for the songs of yesteryear led him develop a specialty for entertaining seniors throughout the Chicago land area by mixing classic greats with a modern edge. He combines his musicianship with humor to provide energetic and upbeat shows.

“Seniors really seem to appreciate hearing the music from the era that I call ‘Golden Years of American Popular Music,’ and it is so gratifying to see them singing, dancing and toe-tapping,” Askins said. “I specialize in programs for senior citizens and do nearly 300 shows per year.”
