Parris, 81, now is retired. He assembled the band especially for the occasion. What little rehearsal they had essentially came during the sound check. And I'll tell ya what: He sounded GREAT!
They "did the hit" - "In The Still of the Night." But there were others! They also performed “To The Aisle” and two songs that originally were recorded by Parris’ previous group, The Scarlets: “Cry Baby” and “Dear One.”
As a grad of St. Bernadette's School, I had always thought the song was recorded in the auditorium - and it may have been, though the acoustics woulda been lousy; but on Friday they seemingly performed right on the altar!
