Coming to a living room near you…

Host Jamila's Jazz Duo or Trio for a Donation Based House Concert!

What is a Donation Based house Concert?


To receive a copy of my house concert guide, send me an email at booking(at) 


It's pretty simple:

*Invite 20+ or more of your music-loving adult friends and family to your house.

*Provide comfortable seating. You have more space than you think you do! Some chairs and a few pillows on the floor and... voila! Your own cozy, intimate, fun concert right in your living room (or even your backyard)!

*My duo set up our small PA system and perform for about an hour (& a 2nd set if desired).

*After the show, your friends and family enthusiastically make a donation!

*I stick around and sign CD's while enjoying the rest of the evening's merriment with you and your guests.

As long as there is a minimum of 20 grown-ups (or as many as your house or backyard or vineyard can hold) who want to hear some acoustic jazz music – we’re happy. This is a great way for me to play new material, meet fans and make new ones.
