I'm excited to finally announce our 2021 Summer Backyard Series, and if you just can't wait to find out who's playing, feel free to scroll down a bit. If you're still with me, here's a short update as to the format:
Obviously, we will continue to monitor the situation with vaccinations and local laws and safety regulations in order to update our guidelines appropriately. But for initial planning purposes, we will open our backyard for audiences to safely distance and enjoy live music. This means guests need to wear masks when coming and going, keep a close eye on their kids (no dirt pile, sorry), and generally be kind and respectful of others. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and drink (and glasses and utensils) but are asked to refrain from sharing with anyone not in their group. The house and restrooms will not be available during the show except for extreme emergencies, so please prepare appropriately.
We will also be streaming all the shows with multiple cameras to Ben's YouTube channel
, so fans and supporters who do not feel comfortable in public can still enjoy the music. Tipping is still absolutely encouraged, with both the traditional jar and multiple digital options available. We are also working with sponsors to get these fabulous musicians appropriate compensation for their time.
We will keep this page updated as things change and evolve, and if you have any questions or suggestions or would like to sponsor a show, don't hesitate to contact Ben via email
. We look forward to seeing you all in person soon!
