What is a house concert?
A house concert is you, with your friends, sharing great music to support amazing artists at a grass roots level.
How does it work?
You invite all your friends to join you at your house for some music. Everyone brings a dish for a pot luck so you get to share some delicious food, too. Eat, talk, then listen to music. The artist usually stays the night and heads off to their next gig in the morning. Everyone donates a few dollars so the artists can continue to do what they love for a living.
How much should we donate?
You should donate whatever you feel comfortable donating. $10 a person or $20 a family or buy a CD or two. The artist gets 100% of the donations. If you are tight on cash, please come and enjoy the music anyway... it'll give you some relief from the day-to-day when you can just enjoy the music.
Why should we participate?
Making a living in the music business is tough. Road-weary artists count on house concerts as an intimate setting to share their music and make a few bucks, so they can continue to do what they love. Wicked Cool loves Music - so it's a natural fit. It's why we started this site. Besides, it is inspiring to see singer-songwriters doing everything they can to make their dreams a reality!
What Should I Expect? Do I have to reserve tickets now?
Due to limitations on parking and space in the big room we're going to limit the number of people who can attend to 50. We're taking pre-donations through PayPal: 30 adult donations at $12 each and 7 family donations at $30 each. Please use the PayPal button (below) to reserve your seat(s) by donating now.
We will start with a pot luck at 6:30 PM. Music will start around 7:45 PM. The artist(s) will play two sets of about 45 minutes each and we'll take a 20 minute break in the middle. The music should end around 10-ish. There will be a merchandise table where you can buy CDs (new releases and some older albums) and other merchandise. We look forward to seeing all of you again!
