Tickets are still available for the May 28 Day on the Ridge, a benefit rock concert held at a home in the Eagle Ridge community.

Blues Traveler, which has played more than 2,000 live shows in front of 30 million people, is the headliner for 2023. Joining the lineup will be tribute bands Hollywood U2 and Fleetwood Mask, as well as Laurie Morvan and Whelan Stone. Local high school senior Jake Grissom will kick off the concert with a guitar solo of the National Anthem, and DJ Ponce will keep the beats running throughout the night.

New to Day on the Ridge is “Ridge Row,” featuring local restaurants, wineries and breweries who will be selling their food and drinks to attendees.

Brenda and Shawn Chizanskos hosted the annual concert at their home from 2017-2019, with proceeds benefiting St. Joseph’s Family Center, adding up to $221,000 from all three years combined, which supported the organization’s services that include a food pantry, a meal program for homeless, emergency rental assistance and more.

The concert had been on a pandemic-related hiatus.

Day on the Ridge takes place May 28. Doors open at 2pm. Tickets are $150, and proceeds go toward St. Joseph’s Family Center. For information and to purchase tickets, visit
