️💜 What is a house concert you ask...  it's Nikki and Been performing just for you and the special people in your life️ 💜

A house concert is the chance to experience music in a warm and intimate environment - when someone opens up their home and invites you into their living room, apartment, barn or garden to share in a performance by one of their favourite bands or musicians. - a chance to meet the performers up close and personal and get them to sign their CDs. It’s also a great social evening for friends and neighbours so lets have a party ! line up can be Nikki and Been to full band - you decide what's right for your space..

 

Read all about it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_concert

Contact us and we can go through it with you, it’s easier than you think and shouldn’t actually cost you anything as the friends and family cover the peformance cost with an entry cost/donation, they can bring some drinks and their special recipe – you are supplying the space and they can supply the rest.

 

So now 2017 is well underway and we're looking forward to seeing you at a 'gig near you' or a 'gig near us' soon - way up North, down South, East or Way Out West - wherever you are -  bring some friends and come and join us  ️️💜🎶💜
