Subject: RE: House Concerts
Sorry to ask again Susan, but this could be important. Over here in the UK, as i understand it, if you advertise your event it becomes de facto a public event and therefore liable to Public Entertainment License, Health and Safety Legislation, Performing Rights Society Licence and so on. However if you don't advertise, but 'invite' the audience by 'private' means (I THINK an mailing list list would be acceptable, but only if everyone has joined voluntarily) then the event remains private - and therefore possible.

Is this not the case in the USA (I assume you're all in the States)?
