The idea for Pop Parties at Home came in 2013 after a friend asked Chris if her daughter could have a recording party at his home studio. It was such a success that Chris decided to go one better and go mobile, travelling to people’s homes, taking all the recording kit with him.
Over the next 2 years he developed the method and streamlined the equipment, arriving at the slick, professional system he uses today.
Originally all the music was recorded and burned on to CD, but around 3 years ago Chris realised that fewer and fewer people have CD players in their home anymore.
Looking for alternatives Chris struck upon the idea to use USB sticks instead of CDs, and what better than to have them wearable!
Pop Parties at Home is run by Musician and Producer Chris Burgess with his small, dedicated team of party hosts.
