"How did this whole thing get outta hand?"

It all started with one too many Gin and Tonics and few beers at the Beartrap Summer Festival, outside of Casper, WY August 2011. We were there to see Jalan Crossland. During Jalan’s set, aided with aforementioned Gin and Tonic, I made a command decision: I needed to host a house concert with Jalan. After his set I inquired ‘bout the possibilities of a house concert. Much to my surprise his response was, “Yeah, I do house concerts. Where do you live?”

“Colorado.”

“I’ll be in Colorado in October.”

House Concert #1 @539 was October 8th, 2011.

And, that’s how this came to be. From that first show I was hooked! Providing a venue for these performing artists has become my passion. Our home is now a known venue for an attentive audience and warm welcome.

Other artists whom have acquiesced to our request for a show include: Calhalen and Eli, The Haunted Windchimes, Finnders & Youngberg, Joe Johnson, Tom VandenAvond, McDougall, Mike Clark, Possessed by Paul James, Rachel Brooke, Willy Tea Taylor, Cary Hudson, Matt Woods, Huck Notari RapidGrass Quintet, Matt Flinner Trio w/ Jake Schepps, RL Cole, Maxwell Hughes, Mollie O'Brien and Rich Moore, Joseph Huber, Bonnie and The Clydes, Charlie Parr.

About the shows:

Invitation Only: We are a private House Concert Series and attendance is by Invitation Only. Please contact us to receive an invitation.

The Music – Most shows lean musically toward acoustic Americana and Roots performances. JR is constantly on the lookout for artists to fill the 4-6 shows hosted each calendar year at Concerts @539.

Typical Show – We have a fun! Two sets of music, with beverages and lite food (if yer lucky JR will grill ribs) served before the show and during intermission. It is greatly appreciated when attendees bring something to share (especially when Sue brings those phenomenal cookies). You might win the raffle and walk away with a piece of art from Rita or a bottle of Pliny the Elder.

It is greatly appreciated by the hosts and performing artists when you purchase merchandise. CDs, vinyl, download codes, t-shirts and other merch is available at our merch table. Be the first kid on your block with an autographed CD set.

House Show
A house show is a chance to enjoy music in a welcoming and intimate setting. It's when someone opens up their home and invites you into their living room, or backyard, to experience a performance by one of their favorite musicians. It's a chance to meet the performers and get them to sign their CD. A house show is also a great social evening of friends and neighbors.
