House concerts are one of our favorite ways to share music. 

If you are interested in finding out more about house concerts, and possibly hosting one yourself, there are free resources here.

If you'd like to host us at a house concert, we'd love to hear from you. Email us here.

These shows are small, intimate, and enable us to deliver our music through a conversation with the audience. They can be held anywhere a small gathering of music lovers will be comfortable...a living room, family room, backyard, community room at an apartment complex...so many possibilities. 

Here are what some of the folks who've hosted us have to say...

Ordinary Elephant (Crystal and Pete) is mesmerizing. Crystal’s smoky voice, Pete’s banjo and their harmonizing made for an incredible sound. The stories they shared behind their songs and the depth of the words made them even more special (Oh, and ask Pete to tell you some jokes). We were honored to host their first Louisiana show and hope to have them back. Hosts/audiences do not miss seeing these guys in your area; you will be in for an incredible evening.

The thing about Crystal and Pete that impressed us, besides their obvious talent as singer-songwriters, is their courage to go for their dreams at such a young age. When we first heard them together, we could see their emotions, their attraction to each other, and their dedication to their music. Our house concert audiences loved them. In that up-close and personal atmosphere, they won everyone over with their music and their charm!

What a spectacular concert. Great stories, heartfelt and original (with a few very special covers from some of our favorite singer/songwriters) and wonderful harmony and guitar and banjo that merged perfectly. Can’t say enough about these guys and counting the days till we can get them back.

I hosted Ordinary Elephant as the featured artists at my 14th Periodic Condo Concert on May 21, 2016, and what a fabulous night it was. With their vocals, banjo, harmonizing, and original songs, they did not disappoint. On top of that, Peter and Crystal are open, friendly, and humble, and it was my pleasure to host this anything but ordinary couple.
