Book J.P. Clardy for a House Concert:
What is a house concert?
A house concert is an invitation-only concert in someone's home, presented by a host who does not profit from the event. House concerts are usually...
-held indoors and on weekends
-attended by 20-50 people
-paid for by a $10-20 donation per guest, a donation after the performance, or a guarantee
-known to include light snacks, beverages, or a pot luck dinner
-attended by host's friends, neighbors, co-workers, and maybe a few fans
-attended by adults only (approximately 25-60 age group).
-performed with little to no amplification
-very intimate (audience sits close and is attentive)
-performed as two, 40-minute sets with a 20 minute break
-known to house and feed the artist for the night
Things To Remember:
-Invite double the number of people expected to attend for a successful turnout.
-Choose an appropriate space for the concert such as a living room, backyard, or garage.
-Have guests arrive one hour before the show for refreshments and comfort.
