Live at the Plaza began in 2015 at the request of then-District 4 Councilman Matt Calderone, who developed the idea together with his wife, Claire.

Before stepping down from his seat after leaving the district, Calderone said the event had become something more popular and successful than he could have predicted.

“I think it far exceeded everyone’s expectations – it’s definitely mine,” Calderone said in 2019. “All credit goes to the City staff for reaching the current level.

“We’ve kept everything centered around the people and the music in this community and I think that’s a really beautiful thing. It would be my hope, in downtown Tuscaloosa and in this community, that there would be something great to do every night.
