YardWork Concerts
Host a concert in your yard! Sign up to for an outdoor concert for yourself and your friends and neighbors or as a gift. Email us at info@JKproductions.org for more information. 

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 only hire the very best musicians, ones who headline at clubs and festivals. Now you can have them headline at your home!

Hosting a YardWork Concert is easy. Just tell us your preferred  concert date (Saturday or Sunday), 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.
