The summer series of Port Royal’s Street Music on Paris Avenue kicked off last week with yet another night of perfect weather and great music provided by Shelly Waters and her band.

“This is the 17th series and the 65th concert we’ve had since 2007” said Port Royal Town Councilman Joe Lee. “The crowds have been super for every event, and we’ve had every kind of music imaginable” he said. Lee also said the many “regulars” come to the popular outdoor events even if they didn’t like that kind of music. “They just come out and have a good time…and it’s free” he added.
