About the Host – The Habitat House
The Habitat has chosen to host this show at The Bradenton Woman’s Club, but the place known as “The Habitat” is the private home of Ken and Heather Settlemyer who are passionate about the importance of nurturing both local plant and animal wildlife and independent musicians.
The concept of the House Concert is to provide a venue where musicians can come to be heard by those whose primary intention is to listen rather than to have music in the background. We host musicians to perform at The Habitat approximately one to two times per month, either on our outdoor stage, or on the indoor stage in the event of inclement weather or upon musician request. To date they have hosted over 80 concerts!
The Habitat is a house concert venue focusing on the “listening environment” for the musicians and patrons. They feature regular concerts by musicians primarily from the “Trop Rock” music genre, as well as some Americana, with the goal of spreading joy in the world!
The Habitat concerts are a private event, contact for an invite and bring a donation for the musicians. This is completely not for profit, all donations go in entirety to the artists, some of whom will have traveled from out of state! Food to share is always welcomed, but not required.
