Legendary Beaux Arts group reuniting especially this tribute.
Opening up the ‘Set the Night On Fire’ Tribute to the Doors will be a Beaux Arts Gallery reunion featuring three performers from the now defunct Beaux Arts Gallery, which was where Jim Morrison, as a St. Petersburg Junior College student, read his poetry.
Singer-songwriters Paul Cascanet and Eric Scott, and poet Paul Watkins are representative of the atmosphere that encouraged Jim Morrison to create and perform his creative works in public. They will each present an original piece about Jim Morrison and will also present some of their original music/poetry as Jim did at Beaux Arts. They will perform between 5-6 pm.” These performers are reuniting for this one time event–you may never get a chance to see them like this again.
