What we're about

We are a group of house concert enthusiasts in the Bay Area. This group is created as a resource so that house concert hosts can find additional audience, artists can make friends with hosts, and music lovers can discover interesting house concerts in their area. Don't be scared off if a show only has one or two RSVPs, because most of our hosts get most of their audience from their own series regulars who may not RSVP here.
Here is how it works:
Each event you post will automatically become an official event of this group once it has 3 RSVPs. Please try to get new people to join and RSVP. This way, the group will grow and become a better resource for everyone.
If you regularly organize house concerts and would like your events to be announced even before it has 3 RSVPs, please contact me to discuss sharing the cost of maintaining this group, and I can give you admin status.

FogHouse Concerts Presents - TENEIA / JUSTIN KAWIKA YOUNG

Needs a location

TENEIA
FOR FANS OF: Yola, Ani DiFranco, and Aretha Franklin

Why You Should Pay Attention: Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, Teneia is an internationally touring musician and songwriter with six albums to her credit. Her music is a mixture of folk, soul, and roots delivered with power house vocals and infectious hooks.

Winner of multiple awards, her work is featured in television and film. One of Teneia’s most prominent pieces, “Stand,” earned a spot in the HBO documentary Prom Night in Mississippi featuring Morgan Freeman. “Stand” embodies Teneia’s ability as an artist to address deeply rooted social issues fearlessly and confidently. Her true talent however, is how she leaves the audience’s minds filled with reflection and their hearts filled with hope.

Her most recent side project, Heart Society, gained recognition through the Sixthman Cayamo music cruise alongside John Prine, Buddy Miller, and many more. Heart Society was also selected to perform a three-week-long tour in Africa by the U.S. State Department organization American Music Abroad. Teneia is a visionary with the heart to match.

WHAT SHE SAID: I am folk/soul singer songwriter who has a mission of love and equality.

"With the skill of a jazz singer and a warm, disarming stage presence, Teneia can make her voice do just about anything — charm you into a hypnotic trance, make your heart beat faster, or motivate you to get out of your chair and dance."

  • David Accomazzo (Phoenix New Times)

"I get the feeling Teneia could breathe soul into just about anything."

  • J.K. Oliver (EarCandy Mazagine)

“With her amazing voice, unique guitar rhythms and moving lyrics, it won’t be long before this up-and-coming artist will be known nationwide for her talent.”

We’re delighted to welcome back the versatile, unpredictable, funny, and musically awesome duo of Holland and Coots for their third Rose Avenue performance.

For more than 30 years, Brian Holland has entertained audiences all over the world by combining his impeccable piano technique, his love for the music he performs, and his affable and approachable demeanor. He is a three-time winner of the World Old-Time Piano Playing championship.

Since starting to drum at the age of 6, Danny Coots has performed in about 100 countries. Based in Nashville since 1996, he has recorded extensively there as well as in New York and Los Angeles.

Brian and Danny have played together regularly since 2010, creating a mix of music and fun that they’ve jocularly described as “exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting.”

“Holland and Coots take you on a musical journey that radiates joyful ebullience one moment and wistful lyricism the next.” —Pianist and musicologist Bryan Wright

“They work together splendidly as a telepathic team, hearing each other’s impulses and subtexts as well.” —Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives

House Concert with Peter Case and Special Guest Francesca Lee

Needs a location

We are honored to have Peter Case, the Grammy nominated leader of the Plimsouls, best known for their classic 80's hit A Million Miles Away playing at our home.
*Peter Case first came to attention as a member of the punk band The Nerves, playing with the Ramones, Devo and Pere Ubu amongst others.
Peter is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. His career is wide-ranging, from Rock n' Roll and blues to folk rock and solo acoustic performance
*Francesca Lee's vocals are achingly heartfelt, and sung with an emotional resonance... more a jazz chanteuse than a typical pop singer. Her songs wouldn't be out of place next to the likes of Norah Jones or Dido."
