Subject: RE: House Concerts
I did one last night in Scunthorpe - great fun. 15 people and my fee was as good as many a club, plus CD sales too. Very friendly atmosphere with food in the break and a bit of a session afterwards. Many thanks to Hugh and Vicky for a terrific night.
Here are my notes on UK House Concerts. I plan to do a more general one as part of the clubs tips page soon.
I'm sure this is a good solution for clubs who are having problems with venues, for new start-up clubs before they go public, and just for fun.
I'd like to see an explosion in house concerts in the UK - but not for them to replace clubs. If that happened the music would effectively go underground, (and it would also be much much harder for new acts to get started).
That said, bring it on, I say!
