February 2018 Sonoma County Music Picks
February is the start of rainbow season here in Sonoma County. One hour it may be light rain, and the next, blue skies with a multicolored spectrum of light over the vineyards. The smell of romance, roses, and hops are in the air, with Valentine's Day getaways available at many hotels, wineries releasing the latest vintage of their rosé wines, and the annual Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Younger release.
Here are some of our featured live music concerts in Sonoma County this February:

The English Beat
Saturday, Feb. 24
