YardWork Concerts
Enjoy a concert at your home with the very best musicians in the DC-Baltimore region. We started holding concerts in people's yards in 2020 as a way to provide live music safely and legally during the pandemic while providing a much needed source of income to professional musicians who had few other places to play live.  The concerts were a big hit and we are continuing them in 2022. Soon we will be able to offer them  indoors as well.  Email us at info@JKproductions.org for more information and prices. 

Having a concert at your home is a delight. Lots of people like to host home concerts. But YardWork Concerts are different. We only hire the very best musicians, ones who headline at clubs and festivals. Now you can have them headline at your house.

 

If you've ever hired a professional band for a wedding or business event, you know how expensive they can be - $1,200 to $1,500 or more. We make it affordable for you by sending the bands on local "tours"to multiple houses on the same day, thereby splitting the overall cost among all the houses.

 

Many people like giving a concert as a gift for their spouse or other family member or friend, and we can help organize that for you as well. 

Hosting a YardWork Concert is easy. Just tell us your preferred  concert date from the list below, and tell us your neighborhood in the DC area. Email that information to us at info@JKproductions.org and we'll get right back to you to fill in the details about how the concerts work and organize a concert for you.

Saturday June 25 - Americana (blues, bluegrass, folk) - Sold out

Sunday July 17 - Jazz - Sold out
