As many of you know, I don’t perform at a lot of “traditional” music venues (bars, clubs, etc…). Instead I put much of my energy into playing listening rooms & house concerts.
What is a house concert?
The long boring answer…. A house concert is an invitation only private performance. These intimate events are generally held in an individual’s living room, back yard or deck. However alternative locations such as a park or recreation center can also be arranged.
The short, fun answer… I’ll come to your house & play music for YOU… your friends… your family… your neighbors… your pets… get the idea?!?!
Why house concerts instead of “traditional” venues?
Most “traditional” music venues aren’t set up to nurture a true 1-on-1 connection. Many times the artist simply provide background music while attendees drink, socialize & mingle.
House concerts are very different… music is performed in a “listening room” setting, where a true relationship between audience & performer is nourished. This allows me to make strong, deep connections with people in a very personal & intimate setting. Needless to say this is incredibly enriching for me as a performer as well as those in attendance.
What’s the cost for a house concert?
FREE! That’s right there is no charge. Instead I use a Pay What You Will (PWYW) model for every house concert. We simply ask for donations at the end of the event… that’s it!
I do this to make it affordable to everyone… no restrictions! For example, if you’re going through a rough patch… maybe you lost a job… it doesn’t matter. I still want to connect & share my stories/songs with you!
What if I live far away? Can I still host a house concert?
Yes!!!! Absolutely… YES!!! Just contact me … let’s talk.
Below are a few song samples.
