An extremely cold evening & the second show at the Palace. The history that building has could make for a great song – I’m hearing Vaudeville, maybe some 1940’s jazz. The good old days of St. Paul did host some well known music. Mayor Coleman was a huge champion in the renovation of this old landmark theater. A perfect fit seeing the mayor jam with the Jayhawks. The mayor is a good rhythm player & you can often see him at a concert our showing up for good local music.
The renovation of the Palace leaves much of the original interior & added the necessary modern amenities. Almost $16 million to renovate & the Palace, it is now a 2,800-seat venue.
