Hi there Houseketeers!
The Beez (that cabaret band from Berlin) have already booked the Illawarra Folk Festival 2018 and will be appearing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival for a 7night run directly after that, but we´re still looking to book some fabulous house concerts through February, March and early April. Dates are flexible as we wait for a yea or nay from several folk festivals, but we´ll post new tour infos on our website as they come to hand.
You can find lots of stuff about us on our profile here on this illustrious website, and, if that´s not enough, you can also go to www.thebeez.de where you´ll find a bewildering collection of videos, songs, photos,newspaper articles…
Look forward to hearing from anyone in NSW or Victoria who appreciates the eccentric…
Cheers from Berlin!
I held my first House Concert last weekend with guest artist Duncan Townsend. Wow! Duncan was amazing. Just himself, an acoustic guitar, a wonderful voice, foot stomping boots, melting originals and sing-along covers. Myself and my guests had a great time. Totally recommend him and the House Concert idea. Get on-board folks …
peace, love & music
Hello fellow House Concerteers
I’m an acoustic guitarist and vocalist with roughly fifteen years of live experience who recently started performing House Concerts and have found the medium to be perfect for what I do. I am currently getting in touch with hosts all along the East Coast and SA to try and book a small tour throughout Sep/Oct/Nov. I’ll be especially looking for gigs once the weather warms up and concerts can be held outside.
If you’re wondering what kind of show I do, it’s generally a mix of acoustic instrumentals, folky originals as well as lots of covers and standards and audience requests. I’ve also had many years of experience in stand up comedy so humour and engagement is a big part of the show. For some video examples please visit my website http://www.alexhughes.net/video-and-photos.html .
If any of this is appealing to you and you feel like we could organise something in the next few weeks than please let me know. I’m very flexible with things and always happy to negotiate fairly with hosts. Can also provide a full PA if needed.
I am the bass player for Line Matter an original Melbourne jazz band playing dynamic, driving and melodic music. Influenced by Pat Metheny, John Scofield, John McLaughlin, Miles Davis and others the quartet creates a unique blend of jazz/fusion music.
Since 2016 we have been playing at various venues around Melbourne plus we run a monthly Sunday afternoon jazz jam at The Wesley Anne in Northcote. We’ve also performed at the 2016 Wangaratta Jazz Festival and the 2017 Castlemaine Jazz Festival.
Future plans include performing at the 2017 Marysville Jazz & Blues Weekend & the Halls Gap Jazz Festivals in October and recording an album. Live videos of the band can be viewed on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfbnwqOX1WgXPtPBO54qhcw
If anyone in the Melbourne area and Victoria likes what they hear we’d be glad to play at your place!

Myself (Heather Innes) and Pauline Vallance are two Scottish singers on tour in Australia September 22 – October 15, 2017. We arrive in Sydney on September 21st and, allowing for jet lag, we are looking for bookings in NSW September 22nd – 27th and 29th. September 30th and October 2nd and 3rd we’re hoping to fill in our Queensland tour. October 5 – 11th we’re available for concerts in either Queensland or NSW and we could squeeze in a concert in NSW on October 15 before we fly home on October 16.
I’m promoting my newly released CD “Here Comes The Day” on this tour and Pauline and I would love to perform the songs for you plus some of Pauline’s own songs and the occasional traditional Scottish song and a few tunes. I sing and play bodhran and Pauline sings and plays the clasarch (Celtic harp) and the flute.
I grew up in Australia many moons ago and I’m looking forward to returning. Pauline hasn’t been to Australia before and is looking forward to the adventure. I’ve sung in house concerts before, mainly in the USA, and I’ve told her they are the best way to meet new folk. It is short notice I know but if you have a free date that works with ours please get in touch by visiting our artist profile on here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
