The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

About Me
"Hello Cruel World" is the third release from Mars Arizona on Big Barn Records distributed by Burnside Distribution. David Dawg Grisman makes sparks fly from his mandolin on the opening track 'Dirty Town' resplendent in its identification of the wayward coping mechanisms of small town barfly alcoholics. His son Sam Grisman pushes the tune into the red line with his thundering upright bass. The genius of Al Perkins on pedal steel haunts 'Circus', a tune that shakes its head in disbelief at the freak show fairground bazaar that America's politicians have constantly toured the highways of humanity with. Or so it seems. Storto sets off on her own with Good To Be Lucky her crisp and world-wise vocals taking inspiration from Mark Twain's famous words: 'Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.' Storto's voice hauntingly reminds us that the huge gulf between those privileged few and the masses below might just owe a thing or two to luck. Neil Young's 'Time Fades Away', T Rex's 'By the Light of the Magical Moon' and Loretta Lynn's 'Blue Kentucky Girl' are put through the Mars Arizona sweet and sour smoothie maker. Paul and Nicole know their musical history books and these inspired covers glide, grate and grind in all the right places.
