Hosting a House Concert

 House concerts are a wonderful, intimate way to experience live music.

• House concerts are held indoors and outdoors! Consider co-hosting with a friend.

• Audiences are usually 15-30 guests (or the more the merrier!). Each guest chooses one of Joy's CDs as a thank you gift.

• Artists are paid by a $10-20 donation per guest. You can suggest the amount in your invitation or place a donation sign and a basket by the front door.

• Your event could include light snacks, beverages (or BYOB), or even a potluck dinner.

• We provide a small sound system so that everyone can hear well.

• Performances are generally around one hour and thirty minutes. We’ll stick around afterwards for socializing.
