When Every Band is Now a House Band...

The COVID-19 outbreak sees global citizens self-isolating or quarantined by their governments for the safety of everyone. Schools, offices, and work sites around the globe have been emptied and people told to stay home. Museums, sporting events, concerts, restaurants, gyms, and more are all following suit. In an effort to help alieviate the boredom, and to help musicians around the world financially survive what could be weeks or months of no public gigs or concerts, Houseband.ca is born.

Musicians get the opportunity to work from home and share their craft and you, the audience, gets to continue to see your favourite artists perform while supporting their livlihood.

Pricing and fees are transparent are fair while operating costs are kept as low as possible.  Artists are able to provide paid, free, and pay-what-you-want shows.
