If you build it they will come…a South Bay network of house concert and small live music venues, and all us fans who love the up close and personal music experience.  This site is for music lovers of all genres to check out what's happening on the San Francisco peninsula down to San Jose.  The artist talent pool is amazing.  Let's build the audience!

Never been to a house concert?  You're in for a treat!  Defined as "true listening environments", they are typically small gatherings in the privacy of a home or small stage.  Usually 30-50 people.  Occasionally, like if someone has a super cool back yard, it's easy to fit in more.  Every host runs things a bit different.  Typically, seating is provided.  But you may be asked to bring a chair or a blanket.  Typically it's BYOWhatever.  But, there might be  social time and/or a potluck.  

Guests are asked to be very respectful of the house.  Stick to the concert area, be clean and no smoking.

The artist reflects the flavor of the host, from classical to singer songwriter.   Don't' worry if there are just a couple rsvp's.  Most experienced hosts have cultivated a mailing list.  This site is an adjunct to that and to help new house concert providers get started by establishing a shared pool of fans.  The more house concert venues, the more fans, the more artists who get to share their amazing talents. 

Want to become a host?  It really is easy.  But please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.   Here are a couple resources:  http://www.americansongwriter.com/2014/02/songwriter-u-make-real-money-donation-based-house-concerts/         http://www.concertsinyourhome.com/CIYH_HouseConcertGuidex.pdf

PLEASE NOTE!!!!  Seating is limited.  You are not allowed to rsvp yes and then not show.   No shows are a big deal.  Attendance is taken.   The reputation of this meet up will be one of dependability, as if you paid for your ticket in advance.
