  Effectively a private party, no money involved, cool.

I disagree: because you have not invited the audience, it isn't in your home,
and it is something of a public performance, it is a violation of the
copyright: even if it is not one that could generate a legal response.

  Gray area. But even if it is a violation, how could one ever possibly
  prosecute it?

Learning the music isn't ever a problem. Doesn't every musician hope you hum
the tune on the way home?  (Some jazz and achromatic music obviously
excepted. :-)
