Music is one of the quickest ways to build rapport with another human being. Unlike most concerts, our house shows open up the opportunity for connection. It's relaxed—there's no pushing, shoving or flashy lights. You don't need to shout to hear the person next to you.
It's an acoustic show for you and your friends in your living room.
You'll need a minimum of 20 people—maximum depends on how many will fit in your space, but "the more the merrier" definitely applies to an event like this. If you don't live in a mansion—no worries—most of our hosts don't. We can turn the living room in your apartment, condo, or house into a unique listening environment. It's definitely an incredible & intimate experience and a pretty cool way to introduce your friends to new music.
Feel free to invite a friend to co-host with you. It helps increase the guest list and gives you another option for location. House concerts are generally exclusive events with the address given out to only those who RSVP.
Many house shows include some type of food element. Potluck and/or BYOB are most popular, but some do choose to forgo the food element.
There is no up front charge to host a house concert, but there is a $20 donation per person with all monies going to the artist. As full time musicians, our primary income is made from live shows so it's important for hosts to be comfortable inviting their friends and promoting the event to ensure maximum turnout. A CD and T-shirt will be available for purchase and we accept both cash and credit cards!
One way we are able to keep costs down is by staying with our house concert hosts if the location is more than three hours from Nashville. We travel with airbeds and don't require a lot of space. If a host prefers they can opt to provide a hotel room if this is more comfortable for them.
