What is a House Concert?
Simply put, a house concert is an invitation-only music performance in someone’s home, presented by a host who does not profit from the event. Traditionally, artists are paid by a suggested donation ($10-20) requested of each attendee.
Most house concerts are:
*attended by 15-50 people
*put on inexpensively. Hosts spend from $50 – $100 on food and beverage or can ask attendees to bring food or dessert offering. Attendee donations pay the performer.
*known to include light snacks, beverages or a pot-luck dinner
*attended by the host’s friends, neighbors, co-workers, and maybe a few fans of the artist
*performed by solo acts, duos and small groups
*performed with a very small sound system or no amplification. Artists usually bring what they need.
*intimate — audiences sit close and are attentive
*stronger for artist merchandise sales than traditional venues
*willing to house and feed the artist for the night
