DAY 033 Brenda Comer photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).

The first time I heard about the Hall was after Katrina when the previous owners were rebuilding it. Then later I sent my friend, Rachel, the link to the Hall when it was for sale. I’m proud to say I’m now on the board of the Hundred Members Debating Benevolent Association. I’ve been to many events at the Hall - Arts Alive was here one year and Tarts and Tramps and it was for me, this coalescence of everything the Bay – arts, costuming, music, and we were in this magical place. The vibe that is here now is palpable within the community. It is being transformed but it’s actually being returned to what it once was - a place to come together. It’s more than an event space and more than a place to hear music.
