Music: about 7:45

Gary’s House Concert Series is excited to host Probably Whiskey for our Fall show. 

Probably Whiskey is an Americana, Celtic roots band founded in 2018. Kirstyn and Phil have taken great pride in sharing the Appalachian Roots traditions they have grown up with and continue to learn and study.

Not only do they have a great respect for the past but they have also have begun to move roots music forward. By substituting the saxophone for the fiddle they have given traditional tunes a fresh new sound that is both enjoyable as well as audibly fascinating.  This past year Probably Whiskey was a headliner at the 25th annual Common Ground on the Hill Roots Music and Arts Festival.   In July they also celebrated the release of Philip’s debut solo album “Spiess” which the band also performs songs from. It is available on, ITunes, Apple Music, and Amazon music. Tinderbox Music has said of Philips writing:

“The music rides a really nice line between Americana and Honkey Tonk country with a hint of Celtic– that draws the listener to focus on the story telling happening with their lyrics.”


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 had 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.   

I was going to see if I could get The Whispering Tree back and/or possibly convince Wishing Chair to do a Reunion gig. 

I am still working on getting an Irish Folk singer/band.    

“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.
