GUEST,Lyricalwhims House Concerts (34) BS: House Concerts 31 Jan 09

I am getting ready to do my first organized house concert, and have some questions. I know that every house concert is organized slightly differently, so just let me know your general thoughts.

I would like to give a percentage of the donations (I will be asking $10 - $20 sliding scale donation...but won't turn anyone away who can't afford a donation) to the house. What is the usual percentage? (I'm hoping for about 25 people).

After playing around cafe smoothie machines and loud pubs for years, I'm looking forward to performing our more subtle compositions. With this in mind, is there a kind, respectful way to tell people to leave their small kids at home?

Lastly, I'm planning on two 45 minute sets with a 15 minute break in-between. Does this sound reasonable? or is there a better schedule?

Thank you for your input.
