HOST A HOUSE CONCERT

2 different ways to host us at a concert in your home:

House Concerts

An invitation only concert in your home

 

Description:

If you’ve never been to a House Concert, it’s just like going to see us in a club, only much more intimate, you bring your own drinks and an potluck dish to share, everybody’s there to listen and we get to hang out before and after the show. The hosts invite 20 – 50 of their friends, family, and co-workers, and we ask for a $10-20 donation at the door. All of it goes to the musicians, so we can afford to come back and do it again. The audience will also have the opportunity to purchase CDs after the performance and at the break.

The hosts provide overnight lodging (guest room, etc.) for the artist and help with the donation bucket. The artist delivers a personal, up-close performance for the lucky guests, as well as good vibes and points of conversation for the evening.

Timing: Approximately 2-3 hours
Preshow Potluck and conversation  = 35 minutes
Transition = 5 minutes
Concert, set 1 = 35 minutes
Break, more potluck and conversation and CD sales = 15 min

Concert, set 2 = 35-60 minutes, depending on the crowd and the hosts
Wrap up= 15 minutes or as long as the hosts are willing to tolerate guests

Dinner and Song

midweek music, food, and rejuvenation.

 

Description:

Brief, relaxing dinner gatherings that feature music and conversation with a traveling artist. The host gathers 6-10 friends for a low-effort (or potluck) dinner, followed by a short, unplugged concert in the living room. Attendees donate $5-10 each for the artist and also have the opportunity to purchase CDs after the performance.

Dinner and Song is perfect for you if:

you love the idea of house concerts but feel your space or number of friends is too small, and you’d like to support traveling musicians and see them perform in a special environment – your house.

Timing: Approximately 90 minutes
Dinner = 35 minutes
Transition = 5 minutes
Concert = 35 minutes
Wrap up= 15 minutes
