The Yard, voted the #1 Trop Rock House Concert Venue of the Year six times by the Trop Rock Music Alliance, is not your ordinary house concert venue! It's a TERRIFIC house concert venue that caters to the BEST of the Trop Rock, Country and Independent Artists who come to play and entertain fans. Your hosts, Mark & Sharon Leverett welcome you to join us for fun times and good friends!
Admission - There is a $15.00 per person donation (unless otherwise noted) that is collected at the gate and goes 100% to the artists . Watch our schedule and plan to join us for all of your favorite musicians! Please invite your fiends to come along and discover new artists. We're all one big happy family at The Yard and if you love good music and good friends you are welcome!
Please bring a dish/snack to share, lawn chairs and your favorite beverage of choice. There are restrooms for your convenience and The YARDOME, our large covered pavilion, so the party goes on rain or shine! Parking is available in our yard and along the street.
Hope to see you at The Yard soon!
A house concert is when the host opens up their home and invites you to share in a performance by one of their favorite musicians. It's a chance to meet the performers and get to know them in a way that wouldn't be possible in most other venues. You can purchase merchandise and have them sign and personalize your new CD.
House concerts have become more and more popular in the last several years because when you host a house concert you are not only getting the opportunity to hear your favorite artist/band up close and personal but you are also providing an opportunity to share that experience with your friends as well as providing the artist an opportunity to expand their fan base and share the stories and experiences that bring about the music they write and play in a much more intimate and inviting setting.
The Yard has been hosting house concerts since January 2008. We take pride in having some of the top artists grace our stage and look forward to bringing you many more new and exciting experiences.
Chances are likely that you'll find something new has been added or improved upon each time you come to The Yard! Mark and Sharon are continuously building, creating, decorating and planning for even greater improvements so that your experience at The Yard is always the best!
So, when the music starts and the lights come on, we hope you will find a place to put your chair, pour yourself the beverage of your choice, fill up a plate and enjoy the music of the finest musicians there are!!
A BIG thank you to all of our friends that come and support The Yard!!
