Although still in the process of being restored, the South Shore Country Club Park held an array of events on its lawn. One of the events was the concerts that were held there in the summer. In 1981, the first Jazz Come Home concert, organized by Geraldine de Haas, was presented as a culmination of the efforts it took to save the South Shore Country Club Park. Famous jazz artists from around the world came to perform at the concert, which was free to the public. Throughout the years, these concerts have continued to exist.
