St. Reggie Williams

DAY 022 St. Reggie Williams photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).

I moved to Bay Saint Louis in junior high school. I knew about this place and had heard about the history. My first actual time here was bringing my peewee football team and setting up a green screen to shoot a music video. I knew Jesse and I was doing music, mostly hip-hop. I got a lot of music that I’ve been involved in for the past 17 years and now I frequent the Hall. I’ve seen Mr. Phil Williams play here. I just saw The Mourning Glories at your OPEN MIC. We had a rap show here once. It was my brother in law – Little Hound – it was a decent turnout – we had about 50 people. Indeed, my music experience goes real deep and so I’m into the presence and art. I’ve played at HOB and Howling Wolf and I refer to the Hall as the HOB of Bay Saint Louis. There is ambiance and a good vibration here.
