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!
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
MORE ON HOUSE CONCERTS
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!
