Coffee House Concerts
The "coffee house" has been a haven and breeding ground for songwriters and performers throughout the history of contemporary music. It's one of the best environments to get your material heard & worked out. Here in St. Mary's county we are blessed with several of these havens. PJMA has arranged with some of these havens, the opportunities for musicians to perform.
The desired types of music styles include acoustic guitars/vocals, folk, blue grass, blues, jazz, gospel, and celtic. These venues are small, so keep your groups small, soft and warm. Your audience are all ages and families. So the music, dress and lyric must be appropriate to the audience.
Like many of our events there is no money in this cooperative effort. The musicians, PJMA or the coffee houses are not getting any money directly out of this. There is no door fee or charge to for the audience to attend the performance. Groups may put out a tip container. PJMA will have a donation container. The coffee houses hopes your audience will purchase some drink and food.
To book for this event please send an e-mail to [email protected] and we will get back to you with a confirmation and location. If you would like to play on a date other than listed please ask for that date, we will get back to you if that date can be accommodated.
The live performance Coffee House Concerts are held in Southern Maryland every Friday at various coffee houses. The sound system will depend upon the location.
