Backyard Theater for Kids:
JoJo & The Pinecones

New York City-based jazz ensemble Joelle & The Pinehurst Trio brings jazzed-up pop and popped-up jazz to BYT as their amazing family-friendly alter ego JoJo & The Pinecones. These beautifully skilled musicians captivate with an accessible style and energy that kids and parents alike will love, with tunes ranging from fun originals like “Breakfast for Dinner” to reimagined jazz standards like Cole Porter’s “Night and Day,” the title track from their latest album. With a focus on mindfulness and enjoying life’s moments throughout the day, this is a perfect concert for a lovely summer morning.
