    There were at least 100 people, probably more.

    wrobert, apparently the person arrested was charged with a State ordinance, rather than the County Ordinance, and that is why the restaurant wasn't fined, and the Assistant Mgr in Training was handcuffed and hauled to jail.

    No POlice escort. They were probably all waiting at Old Salty Dog's to arrest everyone. I also heard counts around 250+ protesters. I've never seen more cool people in one place in South Walton before.

    I didn't see her, but I heard that Miss Kitty was there giving free tattoos.

    I'd post photos of the people protesting, but they would probably be arrested, so I'll refrain, for their own protection.

    There were so many people in the Pandora's parking lot yesterday- it was fun! I wish we could have had more of a "pre-march" party, but I understand the show needed to get on the road!

    I thought I saw news cameras there- was it on the news last night?

    As the most frequently asked question from visitors is "where can I hear good live music", I think you bonked that nail squarely on the head!

    sbartoldus, I was jesting. They wouldn't have marched in public if they didn't want to be seen. Post away. ;)

    Here's a few photos from yesterdays Save The Music March. There was an amazing amount of talent on that bike path.

    yes, I agree - common courtesy is needed, and sometimes it does take a noise ordinance to bring that courtesy - like Grayton Beach.

    I think the music folks want to do the right thing - they don't want to disrupt people in their homes. I mean, Grayton has had a noise ordinance forever because it is a town with homes and families and tourists who all deserve quiet during the sleep hours. the Red Bar works within that ordinance. If they can do it, then so can everyone else.

    The peaceful protest will hopefully make a difference, preserve the music, and also the peace of residents and sleepyheads.

    Save the Music was beautiful. I feel so honored to have participated. I loved all the roadside support for our marchers too. Oddly though, I never even saw the petition much less sighned it. I hope there will be another chance. I have posted pics and am working on videos (they upload painfully slowly) On the Rebel Yell myspace www.myspace.com/rebelyelljamband. There is also a guestbook where you can upload pics too. Has anyone set up a central site to put all the pics and info and such? I am also willing and able to go to any meeting to help out and show support. Just let me know groovegirls@netzero.net

    bump.....A big thank you to everyone who walked from Pandora's to Sally's Backside. Thank you to everyone who supported the musicians with water and cheers along the path. It was an amazing turnout. :clap:
