Music Business/Law Tips - "House Concerts"
For a touring band that maybe is new or needs to fill in some gap dates, house concerts are a great way to stay busy, make new fans and generate income. Normally house concerts are promoted by a fan/host and will happen at a private home or backyard. Due to sound restrictions such shows tend to be unplugged/acoustic oriented. Make sure to get a few simple things in writing with the host, such as: (1) the band gets to keep all the merchandise and other donation monies fans pay at the show, (2) the host is liable for any damage to property or person on the premises, and (3) the host will provide food and drinks to the band.
