Home Made Jam Guide to Hosting A Home Concert.

House-Concert-@-George-and-Wendys

Overview

A concert at your place is a wonderful experience, is easy, and will enrich your life. The effort of organising a concert is well worth it. Set the date with the artist, gather 10 or more friends, and you are away! It doesn’t cost you more than a few dollars to have world class artists perform in your home. Music artists work diligently on their craft and you hosting them in your home pays respect to their musicianship and dedication.

Home Made Jam Guide For Musicians and other Artists.

Overview

Home Made Jam is a directory of music makers and music lovers (and and other performing artists). It’s like an online telephone directory only everything you would want to make yourself appeal to your audience is visible: bio, photos, videos, sound samples, links…. Music lovers do not have to know your name beforehand to discover you. If you are in Home Made Jam, they can find you.

Many musicians are making a sizeable addition to their income doing concerts in peoples’ homes and other non-commercial spaces. Indeed there are a few who make most of their living this way. You get to play to a relaxed audience that listens appreciatively and is willing to pay. There are more opportunities for selling CDs and building your fan base, no agent fees, no booking fees and you may get a meal and even a place to stay the night. Some hosts will organise events on weeknights or weekend afternoons, to help you fill your tour schedule. In addition, your listing on Home Made Jam means you are visible to people looking to book you for more conventional gigs as well as weddings, parties and other functions. As our community of artists, hosts and guests grows, Home Made Jam will become a go to place for connecting musicians with a wide range of audiences.

Overview

A concert at your place is a wonderful experience, is easy, and will enrich your life. The effort of organising a concert is well worth it. Set the date with the artist, gather 10 or more friends, and you are away! It doesn’t cost you more than a few dollars to have world class artists perform in your hall. Apartment buildings and other shared dwelling communities often have a common or recreation room that may be suitable. Many hall committees and local councils will waive or reduce the hiring fees for events that benefit the community. Music artists work diligently on their craft and you hosting them in your hall pays respect to their musicianship and dedication. There are many fine musicians eager to share their music with you.
