Due to the pandemic, we've had to cancel all indoor concerts. But we're offering live jazz concerts in your yard! We also offer some bluegrass and classical music  concerts and hire only the very best musicians. 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 you and it provides much-needed income for working musicians who have had to forego live performances during the pandemic.  

We follow CDC and local government safety guidelines. Holding the concerts outside is obviously the safest way to go.

We also require masking and social distancing as needed and limit the number of guests to ensure social distancing can be achieved.

this. Hopefully we'll be able to lift these

restrictions in the not too distant future!

Hosting a YardWork Concert is easy. Just tell us your preferred artist or concert date, 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 hopefully work out a concert for you.

Coverage of YardWork Concerts in the

Washington Post is here and here.
