For more than three decades, a diverse array of bands have made the Depot Plaza one of the best concert venues in the Bay Area – and certainly one of the most beautiful places to enjoy live music – for free. The 2016 edition of the Mill Valley Arts Commission’s Concerts on the Plaza kicks off Sunday, August 7, and it’s safe to say that the headliners weren’t born yet when the series debuted.

Ridgway, a Novato quintet of Marin School of the Arts alums, plays a blend of reggae, rock and hip hop, mixing originals with covers of Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers and 311. The group has performed at venues all over the Bay Area, including Mill Valley’s Sweetwater Music Hall, HopMonk in Novato, the Brick & Mortar in San Francisco, Sleeping Lady Café in Fairfax, the Phoenix in Petaluma, and 924 Gilman, the Berkeley club made famous by Green Day.

Ridgway performs at 4pm, and they’ll be preceded by Second Street Band, a blues-rock group from wine country whose members have shared the stage with legends Muddy Waters and Elvin Bishop.

The series continues throughout August – go here for more info.
