Welcome to our first blog and our fifth house concert season. We wanted to create a virtual place where you can check our upcoming concerts for 2007-2008.

We're trying another way to reach all of you who have climbed the 58 stairs to our music parlor and those of you who are about to. All the basics are still in place. About once a month, we host a performer or group in our living room in Manhattan. Our door opens at 7:30, music begins at 8:00 and usually ends around 10:30. We ask that our guests donate $15, all of which goes to the performers, along with something for the food and drink buffet. Dress is casual to hipster.

Please RSVP for our concerts if you would like to sit down. There is always standing room in the kitchen. We have a capacity of about 60. I will send you a confirmation email letting you know that I heard from you. We encourage friends to bring friends and to pass along the word on this unique way to hear acoustic music in the city. Just remember that this is our home, not a business. Producing these concerts is a labor of love and we want you to be a part of it!

We will also publish links to artists websites so that you can read about them and sometimes listen to recordings of the music you will hear. There are always CDs for sale during the concerts and we encourage you to bring along some extra cash to take one or more home.
