Gallery House Concerts


Updated November 19, 2022

    We only host one concert per month in our home. Limited openings are available in 2023. We are booking into 2024.

    Gallery House Concerts was formed to provide a haven for English-speaking acts on tour and not living in Calgary, who perform their own original lyrical music. Our stage is limited to a maximum of 5 band members.

    We are not a destination venue in that we do not have a guaranteed payment or audience. What we promise is a place to sleep, a couple of meals, and some gas money. The larger your draw, the more gas money you will take away.

    We only host about 12 concerts per year. Friday, Saturday (start time 7pm) and Sunday (matinee at 3pm) are preferred, but any day that works with your tour is possible.

    A sound system (Yamaha StagePAS 500) with a 6-input sound board is supplied with reverb on 4. There are 3 microphones, a phantom power box, a banjo, 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars, 3 mic stands, guitar stands, cables, and stage lights.

    Artists are provided with a private room with queen bed and lounge/prep area. We can accommodate 2-4 more on our single cots, sectional couch and floor space. Large grassy area could hold a couple of tents. Free wifi. Supper and breakfast can be provided. You will have a private entry, fenced parking, a two-piece washroom, plus the smallest shower in the world! You can also shower or bathe upstairs.

    We are a not-for-profit society. We collect $30 per person with a capacity of 50 attendees. The Gallery withholds $2.00 to cover operational costs, for example, PayPal fee. There is no guaranteed minimum payment.

    The more people you bring out, the more you make.

    By the way, when you become a Gallery musician (have played, or are booked to play, at the Gallery) you are WELCOME TO ATTEND ANY OF OUR REGULAR CONCERTS AT NO CHARGE. Just let us know when you would like to sit in.

    We expect artists to self-promote. Contact friends, family, fans, and colleagues well in advance of your booking and ask them to spread the word about your show. Concert attendees should purchase tickets in advance online using the buttons on our home page. This lets us know how many chairs to set up and how much pizza to cook.

    For promotion, we appreciate you sending us a 1) high resolution photo 2) a statement or bio, and 3) links to songs we can add to our playlist to play at prior concerts.
