BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Concert Band paid their respects to the men and women who gave their lives protecting the country Monday night. 

People gathered for their annual Memorial Day Concert in Galvez Plaza in Downtown Baton Rouge at 7 p.m. Monday.

The band performed patriotic songs to honor the veterans. It's a tradition started more than 30 years ago. However, the performance was moved from the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol with the legislature still in session. 

Like in years past, the concert was free and open to the public.
