Fran Snyder who founded ConcertsInYourHome.com wrote to me today with an exciting new concept to stir up some hometown, weeknight support while on the road. "Dinner and Song" is a fabulous and really cool idea that I see as a win/win/win!!! Here's how he described it on his blog:
Brief, relaxing dinner gatherings that feature music and conversation with a traveling artist. The host gathers 6-10 attendees for a low-effort dinner, followed by a short, unplugged concert in the living room. Attendees donate $5-10 each for the artist and also have the opportunity to purchase CDs after the performance.
The host provides dinner and overnight lodging (guest room, etc.) for the artist. The artist delivers a personal, up-close performance for the lucky guests, as well as good vibes and points of conversation for the evening.
Dinner and Song is perfect for you if:
1.you love the idea of house concerts but feel your space or number of friends is too small.
2.you’d like to have dinner parties but need a “Wow!” reason to do it.
3.you’d like to support traveling musicians and see them perform in a special environment - your house.
These events are designed to minimize setup and preparation, so that you can have a wonderful, low-stress event on a weeknight - lasting only 90 minutes from start to finish.
I would love to try this out on this upcoming tour and do have some weeknight dates still unspoken for. Let me know if you might like to see me for "Dinner and Song" at your house, I'll be there with bells on. Write to me at email@example.com
