"I never did get to go to a speakeasy or a rent party. But, the tradition is alive and well here in San Francisco thanks to KC Turner. He's keeping that ball rolling, bringing people together to take in live music in informal settings." - Chuck Prophet
"I enjoyed the intimate setting and the laid back feel of KC Turner's house concert series. It's a perfect way to let it all hang out and really connect with a small group of hardcore fans." - G. Love
"It's pretty rad to just be able to hangout and play music, because it's what it's all about." - Matt Nathanson
KC Turner has been presenting house concerts throughout the Bay Area since 2007. House concerts are for live music fans who love to listen and connect with a performer. It isn't a "party", it's an intimate gathering to experience a special event of live music.
Over the years KC has hosted dozens of house concerts with up and coming artists and house hold names such as Matt Nathanson, G. Love, Bob Schneider, Ben Kweller, Steve Poltz, Joe Ely, Griffin House, Sean Hayes, Alejandro Escovedo, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, The Mother Hips, Peter Case, Parker Millsap, Hot Buttered Rum, John Vanderslice, Glen Phillips, David Ramirez, Matt The Electrician, Jon Dee Graham, Chuck Prophet, Dan Bern, The Brothers Comatose, Bobby Bare Jr., Patrice Pike, Colin Gilmore, New Monsoon, Birds of Chicago, T Sisters, Danielle Ate The Sandwich, Garrison Starr, Tim Bluhm, Nicki Bluhm, Freedy Johnston, Nataly Dawn, Gurf Morlix, Susan Cowsill, Emily Elbert, The Mastersons, Adam Levy, Tom Freund, David Berkeley, Vienna Teng, Alex Wong, Amber Rubarth, Billy Harvey, Danny Schmidt, Jerry Hannan, John Craigie, Megan Slankard, Heather Combs, Natalia Zukerman, Adrianne Gonzalez and many more.
KC is not only the promoter of these house concerts, he also sets up and breaks down each and every show. Believe it or not, all these chairs fit in his little car. If a sound system is required, he brings and runs that too!
The size of the audience has ranged from 20 to 100 people. Most house concerts are held in actual living rooms, but not limited to backyards and art studios. KC is constantly searching for more unique "venues" for his house concert series. If you think you have a great space contact KC!
