Family Junket is the collective voice of Chicago-based musicians and brothers Max, Jonah, and Zach Lazarus, along with their extended family Alejandro Gallardo, Scott Daniel, Rahila Coats, and Clarence Young, and any other relatives that might be stopping through town. They are social workers, teachers, dancers, activists, writers, photographers, filmmakers, and engineers coming together to create healing spaces, community, and parties. In September of 2021, the family started performing live at venues such as Fitzgerald’s, Golden Dagger, and the Windy City Harvest Festival. Melding flutes, saxophones, trumpets, and violins, with unique vocal compositions and wavy electronic production, the family creates genre-busting music, best listened with the family.

We are so excited to continue our Side Yard Sounds Series in 2022 with a bevy of creative musical artists who traverse diverse forms: from the intriguing waters of experimentalism and the avant-garde to forward-reaching jazz and other modes that are expanding our vision of music both in and outside of Chicago.

Compound Yellow, in Chicago’s Oak Park neighborhood, has long been a site for visual art exhibitions of all kinds. Its emphasis on the artist as a protagonist who incites our impulses to challenge the status quo, and considers brighter alternatives, reminds all that taking risks and new steps is what keeps our arts and social circles truly alive.
Join us then as we embark on bold new adventures in sound & space with a series of outdoor concerts held safely in our colorful, art-adorned yard.
