"House Concerts - music, audience, no distractions."
What is a house concert?

A house concert is an invitation-only concert in someone's home, presented by a host who does not profit from the event.

Also, house concerts are usually:
  • held indoors and on weekends
  • attended by 20-50 people
  • paid for by a $10-20 donation per guest (for the performer)
  • known to include light snacks, beverages or a pot-luck dinner
  • attended by the host's friends, neighbors, co-workers, and maybe a few fans of the artist
  • attended by a 25-60 age group
  • performed by solo, duos and small groups
  • performed with little or no amplification
  • very intimate - the audiences sit close and are attentive
  • two sets of 40 minutes, except for our one-set formats designed for weeknights.
  • stronger for your merchandise sales than traditional venues
  • booked with and without a financial guarantees (can vary by host and by artist)
  • known to house and feed the artist for the night
