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 HudomeJohn 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.
Nancy HuebnerNancy Huebner is a native of Philadelphia but has been living in Delaware for several years. She was a classical vocal performance major at Temple University until she took an elective in pop songwriting and decided that was much more fun. Her piano-based songs range from pure musical theater to pop to what has been described as "urban confessional cabaret". She has performed full-length concerts of her pieces and lately has been making appearances at local open mics to showcase new songs.
