To Host a House Concert

      A "house concert" is generally hosted by dedicated music lovers who open their homes to musicians and fans for an evening or afternoon of music in the intimate and comfortable setting.

     Invite your friends, acquaintances, and other fellow music lovers to your home, provide a few refreshments, sit back and enjoy an up-close and personal concert. The entertainer will have an audience of handpicked people that truly enjoy music, and the people will have an enriching musical experience between entertainer and audience. Compensation for the musician can be agreed upon as either a free-will contribution or a set price per person.

    Contact Jim at 405-306-4182 to work out the details for your special evening.
