Virginia connections to Grammy Awards

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Some of the big Grammy winners have Virginia connections.

Tappahannock native, Chris Brown took home the prize for best in R&B.

Bon Iver was named best new artist. They are not from Richmond, but one of the main band members is Richmond trombonist, Reggie Pace.

Pace is well known as the leader and founder of Richmond's "No BS Brass" band.

No BS has been a favorite local act at the Richmond Folk Festival and was one of the headlining bands at this past Dominion Christmas parade.

Pace's sounds can also be heard and reflected at local college basketball games.

He's arranged songs for the VCU opening theme for the men's basketball team.

Pace has also played and arranged music for both VCU and University of Richmond pep bands.
