Hosts

Scott Swayze Co-host

Hello! As new residents of the west side, we're excited to debut our large yard/garden + garage for an evening of music, drinks, and art! All are welcome to attend, BYOB! We'll have a large garage and garden area (can fit up to 50 people comfortably). Covid restrictions do not apply since this is an outdoor event, but please feel welcome to wear a mask for your comfort level. Few chairs will be provided (as we are still building out our back yard) but lots of comfortable places to lay down on the grass so please bring all you'd like for a picnic! This will be an evening event, complete with a (controlled) firepit, twinkly lights, all the good stuff. Those wanting to stay after the music are welcome to relax and enjoy a movie on the projector (movie TBD). The projector will also be set up for a sound reactive visual experience catered to the musicians' liking (should they wish to collaborate). Nothing over the top, just something to enhance the experience :)

We're looking forward to hanging with you and hosting as often as possible! good yards shouldn't be left to waste.

additional details:
-some food and drink may be provided, but not guaranteed (depends on how many people plan on attenting)
-bathroom available inside if needed (bring a mask if that will make you more comfortable going indoors, but again, not required)
-plenty of on-street parking on side streets
-you're welcome to have food delivered to the event location (doordash knows us well)

about us:
Scott and I are artists and great appreciators of live music. I'm an interactive artist and Scott is a writer. We both have day jobs of course, but this is a great excuse to flex our skills in the name of fun and community enjoyment! Hope to see you there!

Alexander thank you for an evening of brilliant and beautiful and engaging music. First time I've had the experience of hearing Bach performed live on a guitar. You were amazing. I was transfixed and profoundly moved.

Also kudos to the house I'm not sure what the banana shaped, inflatable object I was sitting on is call but it made for a cozy seat in the garden.
Alessandra couldn't have been more welcoming.

Yes thanks to all who attended and made this possible. Alexander was such a professional and so talented. For me, hosting my first groupmuse has been years in the making from the first one I booked in Brooklyn prior to covid, which was sadly cancelled due to lockdown. It was everything I had hoped and more; I'm electrified by this community and the lovely people who are a part of it. Stay tuned for future groupmuses at our location!! Be well everyone and always remember, there's simplicity and beauty in the art of listening to classical music! It will capture you if you let it, I know it has certainly done that for me. So grateful to have hosted!
