House Concerts FAQs

What is a House Concert? 
  
It is a private concert in your house or backyard for your friends. It is warm, intimate and informal and gives your guests an unforgettable musical experience. You don’t need a big place as cozy still makes a great experience. Guests will have the opportunity to get to know the artists and will come away with a satisfying musical evening. 
  
How does it work? 
  
As the Host, we will work with you to set everything up. We provide the sound system and work sensitively in your house. You will invite twenty to fifty of your friends. You might provide beverages and finger food or make it a potluck, BYOB affair. Up to you - your style, as you are. 
  
How does the band get paid? 
  
There are a number of ways to go. The Host can either ask the guests for a donation (around $10 to $20 each) or the Host just pays the band to show up. We will also sell copies of our CDs and other merchandise to any of your guests who are interested. 
  
What are the risks? 
  
No more than any other party for your friends that you have given.  Like any party, someone could hurt themselves on your property doing something accidental. Because they are private guests, no extra or special insurance is required. You are not running a business. But the biggest risk is that you will want to do it again! 
  
Why would a talented artist like Jess Wayne and his band play a house concert? 
  
Because we love them! The chance to really connect with people who will actually listen is a sublime experience. 
  
Do I need any special equipment? 
  
Nope, we will bring all the gear necessary to make a beautiful high fidelity listening experience that is not too loud but just right.
