Then and There

Tonight at City Hall, Paul Belley opened up the Crime Victim Remembrance Event, sponsored by the Parents of Murdered Children, with a saxophone rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

After several speeches from local officials, Paul closed things up an incredible "America the Beautiful."

When the decision was made to hold the event inside, it was a call based entirely on the threat of rain, and the potential for damage to the sound system.

Besides making for a closer, more intimate gathering inside (and increasing the comfort level of everyone in attendance), the setting made for what Paul said were "great acoustics" that he wishes he could replicate everywhere he plays.
