When the pandemic hit, we had to cancel all indoor concerts. So we began offering live jazz concerts in people's yards. That provided some much needed income for the musicians and brought joy to people who had been deprived of live music. As the pandemic wanes, we are continuing these YardWork Concerts because people just enjoy having friends and neighbors over to experience a great concert at home. Many people like giving a concert in the yard as a gift for their spouse or other family member too.  Basically, we send bands on local "tours" that stop in your yard, play a concert, and then move on to the next house. That makes it more 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 regarding capacity, social distancing and masks. 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.
