Gary’s House Concert Series is excited to have Adam Travis back for a summer show. 

Adam Travis is a singer/songwriter currently living in Brooklyn, NY.   Adam’s dream has always been creating music that is unique, powerful.  His lyrics are straight from the heart, and optimistic while dealing with all of the ups and downs of life– seeing them a chance to learn and grow. He mixes a wide range of genres into his songwriting. Influences from artists like Bob Marley, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Zac Brown have made Adam the writer and musician that he is today.

The summer of 2015 was the first time that Adam went on a full east coat tour with “The Soul.” The adventure started with a sold out show in his hometown of Doylestown, PA at his favorite venue, Puck. After that, Adam loaded up his SUV with instruments and band mates and traveled to New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Vermont, Delaware, and Maryland.

After graduating from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s Degree in songwriting, he felt it was time to take his skills and experience to the city of opportunity. This big decision came easy when his band mates and best friends were doing the same and he was accepted to an internship in music publishing. Upon arriving in Brooklyn, one of the first things Adam did was head into the studio to record his third record, “What This Love Can Be EP.” The album features four brand new originals to be released in the winter of 2016.

Support the Arts or they will go away…. and we will be forced to listen to each other.

The next House Concert (after this one) has not been scheduled… 

I have a couple New Artists in the works, but scheduling has not been locked in.  Sofia Talvik will will be back in the USA doing an East Coast tour in 2020 and I have her tentatively booked for October 2nd 2020.   

Let me know if you want me to invite anyone else back or if you have an Artist for me to consider.   

“You” are as much a part of the success of this House Concert series as I am so let me know what you think.

When some up and coming bands tour, they will schedule House Concerts in between gigs as they travel across the country. It helps cover their travel costs and many Artists love the personal setting.

A long time ago I attended my first house concert for a band I followed since Med-School. It was an amazing experience. It is my favorite way to see live music… and it’s always music I love. I have been hosting them since we moved to our Woodbine home. I usually do 4 a year.

Variety is the Spice of Life

I try to find different styles of music, ranging from indie rock to folk, bluegrass and Celtic. The Artists often discuss the rich history of the genre, answer questions and socialize during the “Pot Luck” party and intermission. 

Where else would you be able to see National and International Artists up-close and personal.  Find them on YouTube.  I will update this page as it gets closer.

When I host a House Concert, the music is usually preceded by a “Pot-Luck” gathering/party. Everyone is asked to bring something to eat or drink—to share. The Food/Drink people bring usually makes it interesting. You get to meet some fun people and socialize with the artist.  Bring your favorite dish or appetizer – we all have something we’re famous for. Something ethnic, something different… Or bring some wine, beer or soda.

We usually have 20-30 people show up—so there’s a great variety of food and drink. I usually donate 3-Liters of Sangria, a 12-pak of beer and some Chips to start it off…. I also make Pulled Pork BBQ. I smoke and slow cook it with mesquite for 20+ hours on a Green Egg grill. It is my “signature dish”, but it’s not enough to feed a crowd.

⇒ Bring Your Favorite Drink ⇐

My Bar is stocked, but I try not to have it raided. It often does…. I might have to start clearing it out before shows – which would be sad. I can’t charge if you drink from it, but you can, on an Honor System, Donate to the bar at the slot machine.

The $15-$20 donation I collect at the door — all (100%) goes to the artist.

Please don’t consider it an OPEN BAR.
