Did you know that you can hire the Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen or even Rex March Fowler
(for considerably less than the aforementioned) for your special event or party?
I am looking for ďhostsĒ to sponsor house or fundraiser concerts that will help me raise money to buy a home.
What is a house concert?
Tom Neff writes: The definitionís flexible, but generally, itís a show thatís presented in someoneís home, or a nearby private space (barn, backyard, shearing tent, you name it).
∑ Usually, but not always, the audience capacity is smaller than at a coffeehouse or club.
∑ The money collected usually (but not always) goes straight to the performers, with no "profit motive" on the presenter's part.
∑ Often, but not always, house concerts are conducted "by invitation" (for practical reasons), rather than as "public" concerts like a club or concert hall.
∑ Often - again with exceptions - there is little or no "sound system" for acousticperformers.
∑ Refreshments, if any, are usually either a "pot luck" brought by the listeners, or provided by the hosts using a bit of the gate receipts.
If this sounds like something you'd be interested insponsoring, I can post the concert on my website and help you choose a suggested donation - often $20 - 25 per adult. Itís amazing how many people can fit on a living roomfloor. No chairs needed and BYOC (cushions) are optional. Hosts often invite family and friends, co-workers and sometimes a flyer under a neighborís door does the trick.
People who have never attended a house concert areusually blown away by the experience. I have a small PA but usually none is needed in these intimate settings,although I would definitely use my PA for summer outdoorevents.
Scheduling can be flexible, weeknights or weekends. Perhaps though, by scheduling the day beforeor after an ATS show, routing can be maximized, especially if long distances are involved.
Thank you for your interest,
