New Year Home Concert

  • Jan 9, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

***************************************************

Thanks for the enthusiastic response. We really have to cap the attendee list now. Sorry, hope to see you at another event.

***************************************************

I would like to offer my place to host a home concert meetup, hoping that most of the winter exodus will have returned by the second weekend of January, and are up for another round. I will bake something interesting, to sweeten the deal. I have a piano at home too. I will send my home address to attendees the day before.

    Blog post is up, including the recipe for the pumpkin pie. Told you all it was ridiculously easy.

      I like your blog. But even more I like the things you bake. You're my favourite baker.

    People I will be overseas from Jan 24Th.
    Keep up the good work and I am hoping to join you guys on my return to Dubai late July 2014. I have attended acoustic meetups elsewhere , but I haven't come across a group as talented and enthusiastic as you guys in Dubai. It has been great - I thoroughly enjoyed the time.

    If any of you are coming to Auckland, New Zealand drop me a mail [masked] .. Cheers

    What a lovely evening it was!!
    Marshall’s jolly lyrics(u play and sing great, but your impromptu lyrics stole the show :-) ), Isis intense numbers, shaad’s and viraj’s energizing performance, multi-talented paresh’s suave numbers, Michele magical fingers, Alex, syed, keigan, Camilla, kunal everyone was so great, and icing on the cake – Sohan’s Pie (and his hospitality). Lovely audience too.

    INCREDIBLE!!!
    Thanks Everyone. Thanks Sohan.

      Good, that was a mistake. I was wondering which one of you was "Marshall"? Priyadarshi obviously mentioned about you, and I was wondering why did I save your name as Mouhsen on my mobile! :)

I thank you for includin me into this group and would love to join u the next time. I play the piano (poorly) and can sing somewhat. Love music very much and looking forward to meeting u!!

    January 11, 2014

    Thank you Sohan for hosting, baking the extraordinary pie and making us feel as home. Also I want to thank all you guys that you played, sang, and listen. Hope to see you soon!

    For those who came, thanks for coming and blessing my abode with your participation and your music. I hope I was as good a host as you were guests.

    PS: I have found a white handkerchief and a pearly "Alice" plectrum . If these are of sentimental value or anything like that, please let me know, and I will hold on to them until you pick them up.

  • Paresh

    Hi Sohan, thank you very much for hosting the event and you were an excellent host and your baking skills are great, next time look forward to you playing your piano. I think it also shows us that the size of the apt does not matter which gives an opportunity for more members to host such shows even in smaller numbers. Great to listen to the rest of the group and the ones who made up the audience too.

    1 · January 10, 2014

  • Raju M.

    Wonderful group of talent and good nature. As usual this is usually the best meeting I go to. I wish it was more often.

    January 10, 2014

  • Syed A.

    Thank you so much Sohan, for hosting. You have been a great host and pardon us for messing up your place. It has been a great musical evening.

    Recently I went for a meeting at the magazine shop in difc. It was similar to ours and planned by the meet up group freshly ground sounds. Maybe we can check this place.

    Hey Guys - I am flat out at work and not going to make it tonight. I have just cancelled my place so please someone else take it. Hope you all have a stellar night and I look forward to seeing you guys soon x

    January 9, 2014

  • Keigan

    I think we need to try and find a venue like a large enough coffee shop. We should work out discounts for the group members for the events hosted with the venue if possible. Anyone has any other ideas

    January 9, 2014

    • Daniel

      There are a bunch of legal issues in Dubai when it comes to performing in a public venue... which is why I started the house concert idea to begin with.

      January 9, 2014

  • LEENA

    how is zaabeel park or mamzar?

    January 9, 2014

  • LEENA

    Just a suggestion..I see 25 attending and 29 in wait list. If we have another venue, can we split the group and have two sessions? That way everyone gets a chance to enjoy the music:) People can choose which ever group the want to be in based on the kind of music being played/language/instrument...

    1 · January 7, 2014

    • Mouhsen

      doesn't have to be on the day, there is a long weekend I think for most people so we can do it during this long weekend.

      January 9, 2014

    • Isis

      That's true, but that's always the problem too! We are a large meet up group but few volunteer for hosting concerts...

    Exact address has be sent to the attendants. If someone from the waiting list finds a free spot and needs the address please contact me via personal e-mail.

    January 8, 2014

  • Kunal

    I can't seem to add a guest on my RSVP, can only see an option to cancel. I know the list is full, but can a confirmed attendee do that? A little help?

    January 8, 2014

    • Isis

      No, unfortunately you can't add a guest if there is a waiting list.. Sorry for that. See you tomorrow!

      January 8, 2014

  • Mouhsen

    still wait listed, but out of curiosity. Who's performing guys?

    January 7, 2014

    • Mouhsen

      Do we have enough people performing? Hint hint :-)

      January 7, 2014

    • Michele

      I can perform on Piano.. even if I'm not so good pianist :)

      1 · January 7, 2014

  • Michele

    If Saad will come, and there's a piano, it should be wonderful to play some Queen's song (like Bohemian Rhapsody) :)

    January 7, 2014

  • Kunal

    I'd love to play if I could borrow somebody's guitar since I don't have one here :) I could bring food and drinks if that's cool. Also any singers here can put up song suggestions or popular songs we can play along to! We can get more participation that way. :)

    January 7, 2014

  • Raju M.

    I have changed my rsvp to just me so that the spot can be given to a regular member instead of a guest.

    January 7, 2014

  • Isis

    Guys, anyone that CAN'T attend (or their guests canceled) and had RSVP positively PLEASE change his/hers RSVP as soon as possible in their current situation. The waiting list is huge and it's a shame if you don't show up and someone misses the spot! Tomorrow the exact address will be e-mailed to the attendants. Thanks a lot

    Some people say they aren't going , is there some way I can join as I'm fairly new here and I want to get plugged in

    January 6, 2014

    • Isis

      You'll have to wait till a spot it's free :-) Good luck!

      January 7, 2014

  • LEENA

    Would love to join

    January 7, 2014

  • Sehar

    Regretfully I had to say no :( I am afraid I won't be able to make it. Don't wanna hold the spot while I am not 100% sure. Please give my spot to someone else.
    Have fun. I hope to meet you guys in the next meetup.

    January 5, 2014

    This will be my first time. I'm very interested to see how it goes

    Hey guys, I am going back today to Dubai. Hope I can join this event.. Happy new 2014 for everyone!

    January 4, 2014

  • Paresh

    yes good idea so it can free up space for those who do want to turn up! yes it is great that this meet up has not lost steam and a lot of people are taking initiative. if anyone or a group wants to work out a song or two before the meet up on 9th do let me know, we can meet at my place.

    Whoa, quite a response within just a few hours! I have a medium-sized 1BR apartment, so I estimate the maximum comfortable occupancy of my place to be 20 persons. Meaning we will have to cap. I hope those who clicked "yes" will update with any changes in their or their guests' plans.

    I also hope there are some musicians among you; I can play the piano at a painfully novice level at best.

    • Mo H.

      @Daniel, but no! You're the founder and main act. How many people do you reckon will actually show up?

      January 2, 2014

    • Daniel

      Haha I'm honestly happy that other people are taking initiative. I'd rather pass on the torch and not be the person in charge :D I know that some other meetup groups track RVSPs vs attendance and kick people out if they don't show up a couple times. Might be something we should think about, especially if we have events with limited space and a lot of people don't show up.
