do you like having friends over?
you will love hosting a house concert.
simply invite your guests and let me take care of the rest!
It's just before sunset and you're watching a songwriter perform his original songs. Even better, it's a private concert and the performance is taking place in your backyard, just for you and your friends. Between songs, the artist shares the stories that helped create the songs he has written, and after he performs, he will spend time getting to know you and everyone else who attended.
This is what house concerts are all about!
you only need 2 things to be a host:
1. at least 15-20 adult guests in attendance
With 15 people in attendance, everyone is comfortable in the listening-room-style environment. It's important that your guests know that it's a concert and their attention is appreciated. This is different from a party that has live background music. Well-behaved kids are welcome! It's important to note that roughly half the people you invite will attend. Plan on inviting at least 30-40 adults, because it's more than likely that half of them won't make it.
2. space for your guests
It doesn't have to be anything huge or fancy. I'd wager that more than 75% of american homes today could comfortably fit 15-20 people in some part of their home, and some of my best shows have been in smaller spaces. Many hosts elect to host me in their backyards! For seating, it may work well to have your guests bring a lawn chair, sit on a blanket, or, perhaps you have some folding chairs?
i do not charge my hosts or guests!
That's right! I don't charge my hosts or their guests. I simply ask for an audience to play for and then sell CDs/shirts after I perform. Donations are accepted too. I think it's pretty cool that you're opening your home to me, and playing for free is the least I can do to show my gratitude.
