GUEST,Tom Bliss House Concerts in UK? (44) RE: House Concerts in UK? 15 May 11


I've played the Dursley 'club' and also a dozen or so 'occasionals' in private houses, There are quite a few like Dursley actually - and I know other artists who do plenty of House Concerts the UK every year.

It's a somewhat underground scene though. The gigs are not usually advertised, and many only book one or two favourite acts, and don't want lots of other people ringing up asking for a gig.

Actually It's surprising how many you can get in a typical semi (that's a house over here, by the way, not a truck) if you take all the furniture out and put in chairs - up to 20 (which as many as you'll get in smaller conventional clubs), and lots more in a bigger room. I've never played for less than my usual fee and always had a great time. Best of all is not having to drive anywhere - just stumble upstairs to bed.

Lots of info here

Tom
