House Gigs are becoming more and more popular and last week we went to our first one and saw singer/guitar/songwriter Tommy Ashby. We enjoyed it. Here are 6 reasons to go to a gig in a living room:
Two sets of live music, a good meal and good company cost £15. There are no overheads apart from paying the musician and a bit of home cooked food. You can’t get that value seeing live music in bigger venues.
Some people brought their slippers (no joke!). Anyone can go, and the intimate vibe means you get to chat to the artist, put in requests and really get to know the music.
3. Supports Live Music & Artists
We love live music! Support it and check out the Musician Union’s #WorkNotPlay campaign. Live Music Matters.
4. Local Community
No need to trek to a city centre or major venue. Just get the neighbours together and get to know them better over some quality tunes.
You’re allowed to heckle here. Because as you’re in the living room it’s actually a ‘conversation’. Ask questions, make your appreciation literally heard. It’s intimate and highly enjoyable. The musician is literally performing to YOU.
6. Fun & Different
Should have put this one first. But it’s fun and a very different way to enjoy a night out.
