full band it is. But ...... if it's a solo affair at Chelsea's that could be more manageable money wise and likely to work out. Either way - i'm on it. ...

turns out i have dealt with his agent ...... email sent. I'm sure between M+W Productions and the Varsity he will land in BR this fall.

hey gents .... i had two holds for John for October, but they decided to go back to the Red Dragon (totally get it since i don't have a true venue for him in BR). Should get him in the Beatnik in late winter or early spring, so feel like I'm their main target for NOLA.
Now ...... there are a few ...

Not smart ? Jason Blum made the first one for $3m and it took in over 100$ m. ..... They spent around $11 on this one with a better production team and more time to shoot it. It will do well.
Blumhouse is one of the smartest movie models going and the studios have jumped in on it...

Kingbob ...... Owner of building wanted me to buy it. Not prepared to do that. The Huey's guys have joined forces with leaseholder. Never saw one financial report so will never know the true story. Too much blind faith and passion on my part
Valuable lesson my part, but has led to a venue in Nola...

Hey guys ... Jumping in here
The m+w address was 174 south not 150 mayflower
So don't think this xo place is the same thing but man I hope it is :lol:
And the main reason M+W is not operating there is because the partner I had refused to run it like a real business . You know accounting and...

yeh .... probably make a run at whatever Happy's does music wise outside. I wish them well and I am glad someone decent is using the space i designed and built.
I am in Atlanta until the end of the year on the new Vacation movie, but my guys are on the ground looking for a new spot for M+W. ...
| Music Board|| re: Official Mud and Water Appreciation--Changing things up - JW on 7/2/14 at 7:00 am|
my guess a steady diet of what Huey's has to offer currently, but with the patio setting i designed and envisioned. My understanding is they are knocking out the wall behind the stage and opening it up. An idea we toyed with for stage II. With some money and proper management behind the business it ...
| Music Board|| re: Official Mud and Water Appreciation--Changing things up - JW on 7/2/14 at 6:52 am|
There was some rooting around before we took M+W out, so I am not surprised. Buying the building and partnering with L Bar are two different animals. ...
| Music Board|| re: Official Mud and Water Appreciation--Changing things up - JW on 7/2/14 at 6:47 am|
so apparently the guys from Hueys are involved, but didn't buy the building. Rolling out some new venue/bar soon i guess.
some notable beatnik shows: The Donkeys, Marissa Nadler, O'Death, Charlie Parr, Cory Branan, Shonen Kife, Rural Alberta Advantage, Empire! Empire!, Bishop Allen and adding th...
