House concerts are an alternative to going to a commercial music venue like a restaurant or bar. Held in a private home and attended mostly by friends, neighbors, co-workers and other invited guests, a house concert presents an intimate setting ideal for listening and, importantly, devoid of loud and rowdy drunks. A suggested donation goes to the artist, who often makes more from donations and sales than would be the case at a commercial venue.
No money goes to the house.
We book new talent as well as fairly well-known artists and attendance is by invitation only.
(To receive an invitation, you must join our mailing list.)
For most shows we collect donations in advance to hold a reservation. The suggested donation is $25 per person. All donations go to the artist. We are now taking Venmo and paypal which is the easiest way to pay. You will receive the info on paying through those in our invitation letter.
if you submit your donation by check, the check must be made payable to the artist dated the concert day.
it is then replaced with cash on the day of the show. All of our shows are indoors! We've discovered that a living room concert provides unparalleled intimacy and an extraordinary experience for our 60-70 guests.

The musical performance will ordinarily begin at 7:00 pm, consisting of two 45-minute sets with a 30-minute break. During the break and after the performance, guests will have the opportunity and are encouraged to buy CDs and other merchandise from the artist. All merchandise sales proceeds go to the artist. We have plenty of chairs available for seating, so no need to bring your own. if you would like to bring a cushion, that is useful to save your seat as well as provide a bit more comfort to the metal chairs.
If you need any special accommodation, please call and let us know how we can help make you feel welcome.
