YardWork Concerts
​Host a concert in your yard!

Due to the pandemic, we've had to cancel all indoor concerts. But we're offering live jazz, blues and acoustic music concerts in your yard! If you've been thirsting to see live music again, this may be the way for you. We send bands on local "tours" that stop in your yard, play a set, and then move on to the next house. It's affordable for yoou and it provides much-needed income fro working musicians who have had to forego live performances during the pandemic.

We follow and even exceed government safety guidelines. Holding the concerts outside is obviously the only way to go.

We also require everyone, including the musicians, to wear masks and practice 6-foot social distancing. We also keep the number of guests low and make sure food and drink are consumed far from the band and other guests. We're very strict about
