WHAT IS A CONCERT IN YOUR HOME?
A concert in your home is an invitation only concert in someone's home.
It's a special way to share an intimate and unique performance with Eric John Kaiser in a quality environment.
Listen to him perform his French and American songs, tell his stories, make a few jokes (sometimes bad), just for you and your friends, in your own home. No distractions, loud mother-in-laws, late nights or bachelorette parties going on while you are trying to enjoy his songs. You can even enjoy the show while wearing your slippers if you want.
Eric loves to play house concerts because it's a great way for him to share songs and perform them in front of an attentive audience. It's also a wonderful way to spend time with people and make personal connections.
Eric can perform his original songs as well as some of his "Paris Rendez-vous" French classics from Edith Piaf, Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, etc...
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO HOST A CONCERT IN YOUR HOME?
Here are a few guidelines that many concerts in your home follow, but it's not set in stone and you can also of course build your own. House concerts are usually:
- Held indoor and on weekends and attended by 20-50 people
- Solo, but can be duo performance
- There is a suggested donation ranging from $10-$20 per guest
- Known to include light snacks, beverages (provided by the host) and/or sometimes a pot luck dinner
- Attended by the host friends, family and neighbors, co-workers...
- Performed with a very small, low-volume sound system (Eric can provide sound for the event) and usually in 2 sets.
You might need to re-arrange a little furniture and use all the chairs in the house, or borrow some from your friendly neighbors...but don't feel obligated to overdo it.
A great resource for house concerts is a website called Concerts in Your Home. He can answer your specific questions and help you create the perfect house concert.

"My wife and I have hosted many house concerts over the years with different singer/songwriters. I've learned that for a house concert to be successful, you must have a charismatic performer that knows how to draw the audience in with their lyrics, music and stories. Eric is one of the performers. Not only does he perform great songs, but he usually preludes each song with a short little story that keeps our guests intrigued and laughing.

"If you are considering having Eric John Kaiser play in your home, I highly recommend it. He played for my 50th and it was wonderful.

"Eric John Kaiser is an incredible musician/artist with his beautiful mix of French/American music. We booked Eric for our house party over the summer and everyone was so impressed with his performance that we will definitely ask him to play again next year! Thank you so much Eric John Kaiser!"

"I had met Eric earlier during his first trip through Boise and we hit it off straight away. When his next Boise trip was being planned we decided to put on a house concert. Being a house party in summer, hitting the stage meant playing on our backyard patio with guests scattered across the lawn on blankets and pillows. The house concert was really special. The weather was perfect, the set up was easy and our guests had a great time.
Book a house concert with Eric. It just might be the most fun you have all year!
