House Concerts


House Concerts are personal, private performances held in the comfort of someone's living room, back yard, clubhouse, etc. What we are talking about is a completely unique experience....your very own "private" show. A party with live music is just that, a "party", and the music is secondary. A House Concert is a "Concert"! Your very own intimate, private show by a top tier band or performer. As you read this, please keep in mind the "Anatomy of a House Concert" is a blueprint that may be followed to the letter or used as a guideline. As was mentioned previously, every House Concert is a completely unique experience and your experience is limited only by your imagination. Your guests will walk away with the feeling they have been part of something very special, and it's easy! 

The House Concert is an invite only event. The number of guests in attendance is decided by the host and dictated by the size of the host's venue. We typically request a minimum of 20 guests unless this is not possible due to space issues. Guests are requested to pre-pay ($20.00 per person) to reserve their seats. This is imperative as most home venues have very limited seating. In some circumstances, the host may elect to pre-pay a flat fee (pre-arranged with management) in lieu of having their guests cover their own admission. Guests are encouraged to arrive one hour before the show. At this time the host will provide snacks and/or refreshments as guests arrive and mingle or the host may elect to make the event pot luck. The performer(s) and/or band(s) will have assembled a merchandise table(s), stocked with CDs, T-shirts, Posters, etc., and guests are free to peruse and/or purchase items before showtime. The host may also wish to provide a smoking area. It is strongly suggested this area be situated well away from the food and drink area, stage, seating, and merchandise table.

10 minutes prior to showtime, guests are asked to be seated (yes, everyone has a seat!). Once everyone is seated, the host will make a brief speech welcoming everyone and explaining the itinerary for the afternoon/evening. The content of the speech will be discussed and ironed out with band management well in advance of the Concert date, so there is no guesswork on behalf of the host. After the "Welcome" speech, the show will begin. If there is an opening act, they will perform a short set, approximately 20 to 40 minutes, followed by a brief intermission. Guests may want to use this time for a quick bathroom break, to refresh their drinks or grab something they've just got to have from the merch table. The intermission should last 10 to 20 minutes, after which time guests are once again asked to be seated. The host will now introduce the Headliner, and the main show begins. The Headliner's set will last approximately 90 minutes. At the end of the show, the host will acknowledge the Headliner and the opener, and once again thank the guests for coming. At this time, the Performers will make their way to the merchandise table where they will be available to sign autographs, answer questions, pose for pictures, kiss babies, etc. After the performance, the host may choose to provide coffee and/or finger desserts. The Post Concert Meet and Greet will last approximately one hour, after which time the performers will take their leave.

 It's as simple as that!
