Buffalo Tales and Sam Buckingham House Parties

19 Comments Buffalo Tales News

Hi everyone

Great and exciting news!

In October through til December 2013 I’ll be touring Australia again with my wonderful friend Sam Buckingham.

We’ll be visiting most big towns and a couple of little ones, playing in some gorgeous venues and playing a small number of extra special House Concerts across the country together.

We’ll be announcing more details of the tour soon but, for now, we’re asking you-  DO YOU WANT US TO PLAY AT YOUR HOUSE?

If the answer to that question is HELL YEAH, and you live in PERTH, BRISBANE, ANYWHERE BETWEEN BRISBANE & SYDNEY, SYDNEY, CANBERRA, MELBOURNE or ADELAIDE we want to hear from YOU!

Simply Fill Out The Form

by Friday 13th September,  it will travel through the atmosphere to our wonderful booking assistant Xanthea, she will conflab with you about details and stuff and pretty soon we could soon be coming to play for you, your family and friends IN YOUR HOME!


See below for more info on House Concerts and how they work, and email Xanthea if you have any questions at all.

We can’t wait! See you at your place!

XO  Wes & Sam


What is a House Concert?
A house concert is an intimate, personal, unique gig.. In your home! You invite your friends, family, neighbors, your neighbors dog – all the people in your life that you want to hang out with and share a one off musical experience with.

Does it cost me anything?
Nope. If you want to want to put on food or drinks or buy some decorations then that might cost you a little bit – but you don’t pay us to come and play. Instead, on the night (or day), each guest pays a $15 ticket price, which goes directly to the artists to pay for the show

How long do you play for and what else do I need to know?
Mostly, we’ll be able to make your House Concert start and finish whatever time suits you best.
We’ll play our songs separately and together and the rest is up to you!

Most House Concerts are played unplugged – with no sound equipment needed – so yours will probably be the same. Xanthea will help you figure out what’s needed for your House Concert, and she’ll help you decide on times and other details too

I have other questions…
Don’t we all.
For House Concert related questions please email Xanthea


Here’s a few things we recommend…

DECORATIONS are great, to create a personal, fun and special vibe.
Candles, lamps, throws… get those creative juices flowing

SEATING is a good thing too. Couches, cushions on the floor, chairs… Make
sure your guests are comfy for the show

INVITING people (is a good thing, obviously). It usually helps to remind
people about the event, or send them the info a couple of different ways.
You can use Facebook, email, text messages, carrier pigeon.. hey, you can
even call them on the phone or tell them in person. There’s usually people
that can’t come at the last minute and people that turn up unexpectedly.
Allow for this and don’t be shy in reminding people and extending the
invitation to friends of friends

FOOD & DRINKS are good to have. Make sure you let your guests know if they
should be bringing them, or if you’ll be providing

TIME Once all the details are sorted and you’re House Concert’s locked in,
make sure to let your guests know what time the shindig starts and what
time the show will be. People love being fashionably late but we don’t
want them missing the show!

    All I will say WES is ORANGE would love to have you and you and SAM would be as welcome in my home as much as my kids are.There is certainly loads of fresh produce to share to you, my friends and famliy…Hospitality in the country is always the best.

  4. Yvonne McCarthy - 05/09/2013 2:35 pm

    You have no idea how much I would love you to come to my place in Perth. We’ve just moved into our new home but we don’t yet have floor coverings or an outdoor area where you could perform. Hell, I don’t even have a kitchen sink yet! :-(
    I would gladly pay $15 to see you at someone’s home in Perth, so if anyone get’s a gig at their place, please let me know so I can gatecrash!

  5. Merrill Crook - 13/09/2013 4:42 pm

    We would love to have a House Concert for you both in Brisbane. We regularly support live music & hold house concerts in our backyard. We even have a stage set up ready to go. Hope to hear from you soon! Regards, The Crooks

    What an amazing concept – would love to hear you play in that environment!

  7. Mark Johnston - 13/09/2013 5:44 pm

    HELL YEAH! (I’m shouting from down here in Tassie). We’re not on the list it appears at this point, but if you do remember us down here the sleepy little village of Don would be thrilled to have you. Please come and show my kids what a real artist sounds like that isn’t their hack dad thrashing about at the strings!
