When voices from the crowd soar, when the lights go down, when the rhythms begin to rise … another Checkmate Entertainment concert production is set to begin. 

As the premier concert provider serving southcentral Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; and Northern Virginia, Checkmate Entertainment produces and promotes dynamic music festivals in the region. Through its concert events, Checkmate Entertainment highlights artists and diverse music genres that audiences crave, from Latin and R&B to hip-hop, rock, EDM and more.

Checkmate Entertainment founder, president and CEO Marion Kinard of York says he recognized a void in local entertainment offerings for specific music genres. Checkmate Entertainment fills that void by connecting artists and audiences through music festivals that showcase the talents of emerging and established entertainers while building culture and community through musical diversity.

This year, it’s York’s turn to host Checkmate Entertainment–produced events, which include two concerts and one comedy show. In 2020, Checkmate Entertainment will offer a concert series running from June to September along with two comedy shows. A percentage of the proceeds from these productions will help support five programs benefiting youth in York City.
