One of the fun things I get to do as a host through Concerts In Your Home is evaluate artists who are auditioning to join this network of house show presenters and performers. After reviewing each submission, we’re asked for a final opinion on whether the artist should be accepted, with answers ranging from “No” to “Strong Yes.”I see artists from all over the country, in every career stage imaginable, and I have to admit, I’m a pretty tough judge. A lot of my evaluations end up in the “Not Sure” to “Yes” categories, so it’s a rare and memorable pleasure when I click that “Strong Yes” button. When I clicked it for Kevin Campbell, that didn’t feel quite strong enough, so I followed it up with an offer to come play for us if he ever found his way out of L.A.
Lucky for us, this apparent Angeleno is secretly Southern, and we were able to set up a show along his path home to Virginia. I can’t wait to introduce Memphis to his blend of folk, soul, and blues, all delivered with self-deprecating charm and humor. Are y’all going to love it? I’d put that as a Strong Yes.
KEVIN SOUNDS GREAT! HOW DO I HEAR HIM?
Kevin is coming by Saturday, August 12th. Doors will open at 7:00 for socializing with music starting promptly at 7:30 pm. This is a privately hosted event, so please request an invitation to attend (see below).
The suggested (minimum!) donation for this event is $20, all of which will go directly to the artists. It’s a party, so delicious food, adult beverages, and copacetic company will be provided. Go here to make a donation*.
*Please keep in mind that if you donate in advance or at the event, your donation is non-refundable. It is not a ticket. It is a freewill offering and not a direct exchange for goods or services. All event donations go directly to the artist immediately after their appearances, whether you’re there or not.
