We moved a year ago into a house that was made for entertaining, and I've been able to realize my longtime ambition of hosting house concerts. Inside, from about October through May, we can comfortably seat 35-50. Outside, weather permitting in Oregon, we can seat about 50-75.
The magical moment when your realize your musicians have made that special connection with your audience of friends and friends-to-be in an event you've created is so heady!
I try to keep it varied and within the genres that I love. Prefer touring musicians. My ideal would be a concert here every 2 months, and perhaps every month in the summertime, when we can have them outdoors.
