PASA House Concert Series

One of the longest running house concert series in the Philadelphia Area, for more than 20 years, PASA has presented its members in a true house concert setting. Since its creation by Rob Lincoln in 2000, more than 150 different performers have performed as a co-headliner.

Each concert features three PASA members as co-headliners, plus 8 to 12 "Open Chair" performers. Anyone who wants to play an original song can be an Open Chair performer. These shows are in round robin format, one song at a time and the Open Chair slots not only begin the show but also occur at the end of every round. There are usually seven rounds with an intermission in the middle.

John Hudome

John Hudome is a singer-songwriter whose style crosses-over into blues, acoustic rock, country, and folk. John has performed in bands, duos, and trios over the years. He most enjoys the challenge of solo performing. John first performed solo at the age of 13 (he was too young to know he should have been scared). He hopes that his music is something that people can connect with and enjoy. John has dabbled in banjo, piano, and percussion, but his love has always been the guitar, especially acoustic.

Nathan Spears

Nathan Spears is a laid back, easy going, relaxed musician. His songwriting career began the first time he picked up a guitar and learned a few chords back on November 6, 1971, actually writing a song before he learned how to play any cover song. His writing evolved with the help of a BA in Communications from Penn State in 1980. Originally born in Georgia and raised in Erie, PA, he has been in the Philadelphia area since 1991. He is a founding member of The Pour Rabbits, a six-piece folk band, that has been active in the Philadelphia music scene for over a decade. His recorded works include a solo CD, "River of Rocks", and a band CD, "The Pour Rabbits Live at the Sellersville Theater". He would like to thank all members of PASA for their help and inspiration over the last few years.
