Franklin Commons Grand OpeningPaul Evans
“It was an honor to be able to work with so many other professionals from within our hospitality industry”, said DJ Paul Evans. Together with Silver Sound DJ Taz Sellers, Paul and Taz provided both indoor and outdoor sound for cocktails and the Flag Day Ceremony. “ Eventions provided the mixing board and 4 Wireless Mics and we were up and running for the Flag Day and Grand Opening Ceremony,” said Paul..
Paul chose ‘Coming to America’ by Neil Diamond when the Flag Guard proceeded to the front and closed with a well-timed drum roll and cymbal crash for the cutting of the ribbon for the grand opening. Singers sang ‘God Bless America’, the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’, and all participated in the Pledge of Allegiance. An ever-present feeling of patriotism was in the air that day.
Then it was on to the party on the patio as well as inside Franklin Hall. While Paul played cool grooves on the patio out by the barbecue and the ceremony area, a live band performed inside. From tacos to cigars, Drexelbrook was serving all sorts of amenities. It’s going to be a great location under the leadership of The Drexelbrook team. Paul feels the space is very flexible and can envision many new enhancements going forward, including a possible tented area.
