about Tiny porch concerts

2016 Season

Live Music, Unique Venues, Up and Coming Artists

Tiny Porch Concerts was established specifically as a non-profit to promote all types of live, original music at unique, rural settings, creating a cultural experience, while giving back to the community and providing some financial support to the artists and the National Parks.  The concerts also serve as a means to help educate the public on the work done by the National Park Service in outdoor recreation, conservation, and historic preservation. 

 “Each month, May through September, we will offer new musical talent at the intimate, iconic Peter Strauss Ranch, which is now part of the National Park Service.  It will be like a smaller, rustic version of the Hollywood Bowl without the traffic and with plenty of free parking.” 

Each Tiny Porch performance will be donation based with the proceeds going to the artists and the venue.  People are encouraged to bring their own blankets or low-back chairs, picnic before or during the concerts, and explore the Peter Strauss Ranch. 

In addition to the concerts, Tiny Porch will feature a Mountain Jam Workshop before each main show to allow guests to bring their own instruments and get pointers on “jamming” from local musicians. 

2016 was our first year working with the National Park Service producing their summer concert series.  The season was a tremendous success and we look forward to 2017!
