Jack Carty

We had the pleasure of hosting Jack Carty at our place for a Parlour Gig recently. A reshuffle of the furniture allowed for 60 of our family members and friends to squeeze into the lounge room for what proved to be an unforgettable night.

Jack came into our home and we felt like we'd known him for years, chatting about footy, travelling, family, and of course, music. After our guests arrived, Jack was happy to chat and get to know everyone, even offering to help with the serving of food. The 'bring a plate' option worked well for us, and between the sushi, meatballs, pizzas, brownies and cheesecake, we had enough to feed everyone for a year!

Finally, Jack headed up to our makeshift stage strung with fairy lights and candles, and treated us to an amazing performance. For the next hour or so, Jack had us in the palm of his hand, not only with his music, but with the stories and humour that went along with his songs. Some songs were sad, some were happy, but all of them were performed to a hushed audience, captivated by his incredible voice. We heard all of his favourites, and even a couple of new songs - it was a shame our private, intimate concert in our home had to come to an end.

Jack put his guitar down and continued to mingle with our friends, many who had never heard him play before, but were now Jack Carty fans. The feedback we received from family and friends confirmed that this night was truly something special.

Parlour Gigs were a pleasure to communicate with, and were willing to answer any of our questions via email. We would certainly consider hosting a Parlour Gig again. It gave us the opportunity to connect the music we love with the people we love. We are so glad we decided to host a Parlour Gig in our home - it was a truly memorable and magical night.
