The Niles Town Plaza Concert Series kicks of it’s 2013 season on Sunday June 30th from 1-4 p.m. This year’s opening bash features Plaza Stage favorites Wooster headlining – Pop Reggae Rock from Santa Cruz. Opening the concert are the Americana/Folk-rock combo McNevin & The Spokes, w/ many homespun songs and stories about Niles & Fremont.
This free event also features lots of old fashioned kids games & gunny sack races, along with food booths. Bring a lawn chair or two, maybe a small umbrella for shade, relax and enjoy the sunshine on the big lawn amphitheater. For those who show up without a plan, not a problem – plenty of park benches and a long semi-circle bench facing the concert stage, with shade shared amongst neighbors. There are several restaurants nearby for your impromptu picnic. Please keep the plaza clean, this is a family friendly event. Many thanks to The Niles Main Street Association, The Nile Cafe, and Dale Hardware for bringing music to the Niles Town Plaza! The Plaza is located at 37592 Niles Blvd Fremont, CA 94536.
Described by various music critics as smoldering, top-notch, one-of-a-kind, addictive and like a breath of fresh air, the Wooster sound is a party-ready mix of California reggae and Aretha Franklin-esque soul, spiced up with hints of Motown, surf, Latin rock, funk and hip-hop. Listen closely, and you might detect a little Chili Peppers swagger, a little Dave Matthews bounce or a little Led Zep muscle. The end result? Think Sublime after anger management, or No Doubt on soul serum. Find out more at www.woosterband.com

About Niles & The Town Plaza:
The beautiful Niles Town Plaza sits in the center of the old train town of Niles, against the hills of Fremont. The lawn amphitheater is in front of the restored 1900’s train station, with a nice view of the musicians, hills, and the old steam trains that come and go through the Niles Canyon every other Sat and Sun. The five block downtown is Mayberry with a twist – artisan shops, antique stores, great little restaurants & pubs, a silent film theater, lakes and hills, an oasis of history and beauty. Niles has something for everyone. Spend some time in the old silent film mecca where Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy made films 100 years ago.
