House concerts are not ehe future. They are the now.
Friends and I are putting on neighborhood house shows during all this COVID mess. 30-something shows later we’ve paid out over $30K.
IG page here.
We’re in Austin, and it’s easy to find talented musicians who want to work, but it’s easy anywhere and will work when you try it.
First you need a PA and someone who knows how to work it. If you do not know how to work one, only invite musicians who know how to work one. Sometimes you need a PA. Sometimes artists have one. You can also rent one.
Bose are easy. Keep it very simple.
What I’m getting at here is that there are very few barriers when putting together a show like this. So no need to make them (excuses) in their absence.
TWe have found the following to be true evry time:
_Folks really like seeing music this way
_ People love showing off their pads
_Having Musicans at your house really impresses the neighbors
The vibe for this kind of thing is very strong. People like or like to like live music and they want to help. They know they are helping and have accordingly given generously
It is the now.
