Event Comments

– After the re-launch of 2ndbestonline.com and the release of First Place Hits, a lot of commotion was made about a potential reunion of the band. Considering that the Covid-19 pandemic was still raging and everyone was stuck at home, this seemed more unlikely than ever. This didn’t stop Paul from dusting off his acoustic and giving live performance a shot. After a few rag-tag practices, he felt it was time to unleash some of the 2nd Best catalog onto the unsuspecting fans one last time in a way that most had never heard them. The date was set, and the troops were rallied – It’s a zoom party baby.

– Long-time fan and friend of the band Tony Pennuto, aka DJ Scoobs, lended his services to be the official MC of the evening helping to take some of the load off of the performers and provide commentary for any Q&A and down-time between songs.

– Over fifty accounts were in attendance during the bulk of the show and it was a ton of long time fans of the band and some noobs! You just didn’t know what you were into did you?

– Of course there were some technical difficulties. Paul’s audio decreased in volume mysteriously during Trying and Pastel Shirts. Trying wasn’t played again, but Pastel Shirts got a second rendition.

– The official livestream went on from 8:00 PM until about 11:30 PM, but sone hangers on stayed up pretty late until 3:00 AM!
