Lawn Chairs and Living Rooms '13
My house concert series is in it's 7th year already. I go into the homes of my fans and play an hour's worth of songs, then hang for an hour. Lawn Chairs and Living Rooms '13 is now booking. A couple of changes this year. We are going to go ahead and reserve dates for the summer months, all the way up until August. Typically we only book a few months in advance, but I realize now that many of you have special occasions that fall on an exact date. If you have a special occasion and a date in mind, contact Todd at email@example.com. (If you are flexible, let us know that too.) Keep in mind, being the lead singer for The Verve Pipe means that if a TVP gig comes up, we may have to move your date. This rarely happens; In 7 years, about 10 shows have had to be moved or canceled. The closer we get to your date, the better the chances of it not having to be moved or canceled. Of course, if your date is moved, a discount will be given for your new date, and if it's canceled, a full refund of your deposit will be paid.
This year we are adding Channing and Quinn
to the menu. If you like new music, you will love this amazing duo. They are traveling in from Nashville to do LCLR shows with me, for as long as I can book them. Their live show is spectacular, and their charming demeanor wins over a room with ease. Let Todd know if you want to add a little something special to your house concert this year, and we will check on Channing and Quinn's availability. AND, if you would like to book them without me, it will still be an awesome house concert with them as a duo (and will be a significantly reduced rate.)
So, this year, you'll be able to:
a) Book me solo
b) Book Channing and Quinn solo
c) Book me and Channing and Quinn as a group. (Don't worry - no drums in your living room! Acoustic guitars, banjos, accordions, etc..)
