I think you're on the right track. When I do a house concert, I plan for the first set of about 45 minutes, then an intermission. I plan a final set of 30 minutes, and anticipate a few more songs as requests and/or encores.

If the host is willing, it's nice to have a potluck supper afterwards, and then if it's a well known crowd, that can evolve into a hoot/jam session.

And is usual for the perforer to get 100% of the gate. And it's always appropriate to gift your cd's to the host.

As for children ... good luck! If they get too noisy and dissruptive, either the performer or the host should invite them to leave ... and take their parents with them!

Just my opinion! Bob(deckman)Nelson
