Jason and deMarco Live in Concert
Pop singing duo and real-life partners, Jason & deMarco, are setting out on the road again this February to spread their unique brand of inspiring music. Their journey of "Celebrating Families of Diversity" begins February 1st and will continue for 35 days through 22 southwest and west coast cities. This time, however, a few more family members are coming along. Jason's parents, Bob and Karen, will board the RV tour bus along with the family's newest additions: Jason & deMarco's one-year old twin sons, Mason and Noah.
"We're seeing more and more inter-racial families, same-sex parents, divorced parents, and single parent households. A non-traditional family is no longer the minority in our society. We plan to celebrate diversity with an evening of great music, stories and fun" says Jason. Jason & deMarco will share their personal adoption and surrogacy experience during the concert and tie it all together with music. They will also have their sons with them for everyone to meet face to face.
"We felt that including my parents on the tour would also be a powerful statement of reconciliation; showing a mothers and fathers acceptance and support of their son, his partner and our non-traditional family" says Jason. A highlight in their show will be when Jason's mom performs with the duo on stage.
"We want people to feel inspired and to realize that they are not alone and that we are all part of one human family of diversity," says deMarco. "We also hope that children of non-traditional families will see that there are a lot of kids out there with a 'different' kind of family, and that it's not only okay, but freakin' awesome."
Opening for Jason & deMarco is Austin based artist, Alyse Black. Within the last few years, Alyse Black has skyrocketed from singing on the streets of Pike Place Market to playing some of the most prestigious theaters in Austin and Seattle, performing on Seattle's NPR station, recording a commercial for Target, and touring the country playing over 150 clubs, theaters, festivals, television shows and radio stations per year.
The tour will commemorate Jason & deMarco's ten year anniversary as a singing duo. To encourage families to come out to their shows, kids age 17 and under are admitted free.
