YBOR CITY: The “2011 KAM-BABS Sexiest Musicians of Tampa Bay Awards show” has been temporarily postponed due to Full Moon Saloon upper management firing their General Manager and canceling the awards show 8 hours before the start of the event.
Not much is known at press time as to what exactly happened. Here is what I do know…On Sunday, June 26th (morning of the awards show) at 3:46am, Dina Mead of Bay Area Band Source received the following text message from Full Moon Saloon General Manager, Matt Norman:
“I’m fired. Show is cancelled. I’m sorry.” – Matt Norman, Full Moon Saloon General Manager.
At 4:45am this morning, I was on the phone with Dina Mead of Bay Area Band Source, in order to try and weigh our options. The suggestion was made to relocate the event to another venue in order to have it at the same date and time. For obvious practical and logistical reasons, this could not be done successfully with only 8 hours notice. There would have been no way for the public to have been notified of the location change on such short notice. Due to this we have decided to postpone the event to another date and venue, yet to be determined.
On behalf of Myself and Dina Mead, I would like to extend our most sincerest apologies to all the fans, bands, sponsors, and vendors who planed on attending todays event. We are extremely frustrated and angered at the situation and circumstances surrounding the last minute cancellation of the event, and the share lack of professionalism on the part of the Full Moon Saloon management team.
As soon as the new date and venue location is decided upon and set, the St. Petersburg Live Music Bar Scene Examiner column will release the information.
