What’s a House Concert?

A house concert is exactly what it sounds like: a get-together of friends in your living room, deck, or garden, with live music, and often food, drinks, and conversation.



I don't have a big house. Can I still host a concert?

Yes! The cozier the better. You don't need a gigantic living room or one of those houses on the Fresh Prince of Bel-air :)



Can I book you at my church, coffeehouse, or gallery instead?

Yes but we like crowded living rooms or smaller rooms in general.  



Does it cost money to host a house concert?

Yes, it does cost you some up front money but you can make it back by taking donations from the people that come.  We typically recommend a tip-bucket with a $10-20 recommended tip.  



Other than money, what else do I need?

It depends, you might need access to some sound equipment.  (we will let you know)

You will want to provide food and drinks for the guests - treat it like a party.  



Are you ok having strangers in your house?

This is usually a homeowner's primary concern. They're interested in hosting something but don't want it to be listed as a public event. No problem.  Simply keep the Facebook invite private. Usually we stick a generic "Private House Concert" listing on my calendar page. If you'd rather keep it a closed event, then no problem.



Is the band staying with me overnight?

This is your call.  We typically do enjoy having you be the host-home for the day but if you would rather not that is ok too, we just need to know up front.  



How Do I Plan this thing?

Glad you asked….

About The Band:

Brothers Cameron & Chandler Wood combine an indie folk and ambient rock style with soaring vocals to make up the Jackson, Mississippi-based worship outfit, Seeker & Servant. Their two projects, 2015’s “You Alone Forever” and 2014’s “Into Your Love, I Go” have gained the duo an underground following and garnered interest from Relevant Magazine, Noisetrade, Worship Leader Magazine, Brite Revolution, and more.  Their music is worshipful and vulnerable - it speaks to the struggles that everyone faces on this journey of faith.
