KentuckyHouseConcertfirepitWould you like to host a house concert in the coming months? 16 years ago when I started doing house concerts I would get some strange looks, especially from artists that were on the more traditional path. Now, it seems everyone wants to do them. Why? Because they are awesome.
I bring a small sound system, set it up in a living room, or whatever space is appropriate, and do a show. The host brings their friends, co-workers, family, etc……and we have a party…….with a human cd player…….me.
I will go anywhere. I’ve been as far as the Outback of Australia…….where I traveled 13 hours…….7 of it down a dirt road……to get to a farm where I performed on a flatbed trailer for folks that had driven from as far away as 250 kilometers. I went there after a fan bought the cd on Amazon and then got in touch about hosting a house concert!
At this point……..I’ve probably done 300 house concerts. Four 50 States in 50 Days tours brings that number up to 200 alone.
After last year’s break from performing…………I’m getting back out there with renewed energy.
This summer I’ll be in the US for a bit……..but i’m open to literally going anywhere. SO, get in touch and host a house concert?
Here are some photos from prior house concerts…………happy people, happy times.

The most brilliant live performer you may have never heard of-Peter Himmelman.

December 17, 2013

In 1994, I toured 70 US cities with Peter Himmelman. He is the most brilliant live performer I’ve ever seen. He has the quick wit and spontaneity of Robin Williams, and his music has strains of Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan. He’s also Bob Dylan’s son-in-law, but that has no real consequence in […]
