Host a house concert with David Massengill !
These days a house concert is one of the best ways for musicians to connect with their fans and listeners. It is also one of the few revenue generating opportunities for singer-songwriters left.
We have hosted a few house concerts now and I can tell you it is a rewarding experience connecting one's favorite musicians with one's friends.
There are many ways to host a house concert and there is much written you can find with a simple google search on how to do it. We simply invited a lot of our friends and asked them to donate $20 each to the artist. We chose to supply refreshments, but that is up to you-many people like to do pot luck. I wrangled a PA system from one son's high school and folding chairs from my other son's school. We had 50 people for the show and everyone had a fabulous time. Feel free to contact me for advice if you'd like- Ed Percarpio firstname.lastname@example.org
