Creating super fans can be less daunting when you perform at house concerts. I have included a free resource for musicians who are interested in booking house concerts. It’s called the House Concerts Online Booking Resource Guide and it will help you find ways to book house concerts in your area. Fill out the form below to receive the guide.
There are 3 specific areas to help you when creating super fans at house concerts.
#1 From the Stage
- Incorporate covers
- Tell stories
- Interact with the audience – sing-alongs
#2 Off the Stage
- Meet your audience before you perform
- Learn about the audience and what they are like
- Use the things you learn about the audience in your performance
#3 After the Concert
- Have someone accompany you so they can man the merchandise table while you perform
- Meet and greet with the audience after the concert
- Collect email addresses so you can stay in touch
