Live from Daryl's House started in 2007 when Hall decided to play music with friends and post it on the Internet. Since then, all sorts of musicians, including Rob Thomas, Smokey Robinson, The Doors' Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Plain White T's, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Neon Trees and Fitz & the Tantrums have all paid Daryl's House a visit.
At this year's NATPE in Miami, Hall joined guitarist Jose Feliciano to play a concert for attendees.
