Little Wise (duo) – available in or near Launceston SAT NIGHT 8th JULY

Little Wise (duo) – available in or near Launceston SAT NIGHT 8th JULY

Hi HCA members!

Little Wise (Melb folk-roots artist) is coming to Tasmania from July 6-9.

We have a night available on SAT 8 JULY in the Launceston region and are looking for a host! We are happy to do a small house concert for you and a few close friends, at a low cost in exchange for accomodation for the night. It would be a duo performance, with myself and my bassist Rosie Burgess.

We are doing a house concert at Platypus Park in Bridport earlier that afternoon, then need to drop our drummer off to Launceston airport in the evening, and are seeking a show and accomodation that night. We will be travelling to play a show in Hobart the following day, so ideally the stop would be close to Launceston, or on our way down to Hobart to break the journey for the next day. Amplification won’t be necessary, depending on the space you have and how large a crowd you can bring!

Please contact me via email info@littlewise.com.au or phone 0400 093 448 ASAP if you’re interested in hosting.

Also, we’d love to see you at our other shows during our time in Tassie. Please see the dates below.

Here’s a more electric version than what we’ll be doing at house concerts, which will be more stripped back:

Thank you!

wanted for 1 x regional & 1 x rural Victoria house parties

wanted for 1 x regional & 1 x rural Victoria house parties

Thanks for signing me up to HCA.

I like to host an annual ‘Tunes in the Dunes’ at my bush property north of Nhill in western Victoria (is 450km from Melbourne, even less from Adelaide and is 50km from Nhill which is on the Adelaide road) and thinking of late September or November 2017 for this year. Bush camping in small caravan and camper trailer available for 3-6 people. There is plenty of open space so no limits on noise level! Last one held had 45 people along but was in a February at the hot time of the year and the wind did get up – it was renamed ‘Band in the Sand’!!  Am wanting to have in the spring this year to try and get better weather but you can only plan and see what happens!

Also looking at having a daytime Garden Party in Inglewood, near Bendigo, in early December 2017 in my yard in the little town.

Does this suit anyone’s schedule maybe?


James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel Tribute Show

James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel Tribute Show

Hi all I’ve just joined House Concerts which which is tailor made for the story-time and listening music that I love to play. A resident of the Gold Coast, I’m currently doing a combined James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel tribute show. I also do a Musical Storytime show of modern and traditional folk music. If you have something else in mind, just give me a shout via my profile page HERE

Cheers, Carnaby

Hi all, we just joined as new artist-band in Melbourne (Aus), and keen to play

Hi all, Strong Dose recently joined HCA. we have been playing a lot of live lately around Melbourne, and we are keen to try out the HCA concept. Michael MacManus was on the phone quickly to welcome us and give us some background (thanks Michael! 🙂 we play groovy dancy music which is good for mid sized event where people want some entertainment and are keen to party or have fun. The event pictured on our page was in a semi-private opening night in a artist studio in Mordialloc.  I guess the only challenge is that we’re a 7-piece band so we need a bit of space for setup (min 3 or 4 sqm), and some kind of keen audience to have fun and engage. If you think you have the right venue and want to try our sound and groove, give us a shout. Cheers, Manny – Strong Dose band
