House Concerts

So, maybe just maybe, you are interested in hosting a Connor Garvey show at your house and want to invited some people over for a great night of music, stories, and community…great!!!! Here is some info to help figure it out!

What is a House Concert?
A House Concert is not only a great way to impress your friends and neighbors with your good taste in music, but it is also a chance to help bring music you like to life !  By hosting, you are supporting the arts and keeping the folk tradtions alive and thriving. It is a win-win-win: great for the artist (to be heard and interact), great for the audience (intimate and original), great for the host (fun, exciting, and valuable!)

How Do I Host a House Concert?
It is easy! Just invite 25 or more friends, family, neighbors, co-workers to a concert at your home.
Gather chairs, patio furniture, or ask your guest to bring a camp chair with them. Arrange the seating in concert style. No space is to small…NYC has been done many times! Often a potluck at the beginning ads to the event and BYOB can be a nice touch.

How Much Does It Cost?
Typically the host assigns someone to the door to collect $10/person. If you do not feel comfortable charging your friends, simply place a jar with a sign that reads:

$10 Suggested Donation
kids FREE!
All proceeds go to the musicans
Thanks!  

How long do you play?
Normally, I play a 45 minute set. Then I take a break to enjoy refreshments and sell CDs. After a 15 minute intermission, we rejoin and sing our hearts out!  


House Concerts are casual, but intimate listening parties!

    From the moment he took the “stage” Connor Garvey became an instant Acoustic View favorite. His engaging style and infectious smile established the rapport necessary to let his wonderful music touch the hearts of everyone in attendance. Since that night, we have been besieged with requests to have Connor back in the living room; something we plan to do again as soon as possible.

    Connor we love you and your music.

    Mike and Stacy (and the Acoustic View crowd)
