I'm getting very excited for this!  Never been to Louisville or anywhere else in Kentucky.  I did get to see John Cowan at the Sheridan Opera House last night in Telluride. What a great show that was! I told him afterwards that I will see him in 2 weeks, and he told me that it's a great place to visit and I should have a wonderful time there. 
Who else is going to this?  I know Tom is, and James and Kyung, but who else?
Any old NGR fans out there going?

I got reservations and tickets as well, and I'm a bit upset with the promoters. Mad
Why would they do such a thing? EEK!

WtF? I look in my e-mail box this a.m. and it's full of stuff about Sam bailing out next week, along with damage control. I personally have nothing to do with this. I am as much in the dark as anyone else. I am bewildered too.

Posted on Sam Bush's website yesterday, March 10:

Concerning the "Bluegrass Hotel" concert .... March 10, 2009

Sam will not be performing in Louisville Ky March 20 as continues to be advertised.  As this was being filmed and with sound recordings; and even though none of the performers were being paid (as this is a benefit performance) agreements and clearances were needed with and from the Producer of the event. Sam's recording, distribution contracts, and sponsorships require them. None have been forthcoming.  A statement from Sam's attorney will be released tomorrow.

Sam is extremely upset, confused and sickened that the Producer has used his name and likeness without authorization and continues to do so.


Will let you guys know why and how this has happened once we figure it all out....

More tomorrow.   

Rob

______________________________________________

I, Monte Barry, apologize once more: to any and all of you die-hard and dedicated newgrass music loving fans whom I may have impressed negatively - with my sources - regarding this turn of events. I am NOT one of the Producers. I am NOT being paid one cent either. I have NO power to make any decisions on this project. I built and hosted TheBluegrassHotel website on my dime, out of my heart's love that we share for this great music. I am former sound man for Bluegrass Alliance and Lazy River. I lived at the Bluegrass Hotel '75 to '77. I recently circulated some historic and unique old tapes of all the boys from this incredible musical era. I posted here on the Festivarian - just like so many of you.

I feel terrible. I am sorry for what I did to be part of this ship-wreck. I am sorry Tom. I am sorry Cindy Lou. I am sorry Steph and the rest of the Nelson's. Hopefully, "Rob" (above) will explain what's up here. Somebody owes ALL of US an explanation. I have just provided mine. Again, I am sincerely very, very sorry.

peace,
Monte

This just in....

THE BLUEGRASS HOTEL NOTIFICATION RE: SAM BUSH

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Louisville, KY, March 11, 2009. Sam Bush is a cancer survivor and his father recently passed away from the disesase. New Grass Revival founder Courtney Johnson also died from cancer.


Therefore it came as a complete surprize to receive notification from Sam Bush's manager informing The Bluegrass Hotel Project that unless Sam was paid a $10,000 fee to perform at the benefit concert for the American Cancer Society on March 20 at the Galt House, Sam would be pulled from the concert.


After consultation with the American Cancer Society and our media partners, it was agreed that paying Sam Bush an appearance fee of $10,000 would rob money from the charity. Paying Sam Bush and not the other artists would also create an inequitable situation for the other performers, who all agreed to donate their time at the benefit concert, stating so at two (2) Press Conferences on Dec. 13, 2008 and Feb. 13, 2009 in Louisville at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, KY. Sam Bush also appeared and spoke at the Dec. 13 press conference with officials from the American Cancer Society.


The Bluegrass Hotel project has subsequently declined to pay Sam Bush a $10,000 fee to perform at The Bluegrass Hotel benefit concert on March 20 in Louisville, KY.


The Bluegrass Hotel concert on March 20 at the Galt House in Louisville, KY features the original members of Kentucky's greatest Newgrass era bands, The Bluegrass Alliance, New Grass Revival and J.D. Crowe & the New South. Plus performances by many other Kentucky artists including Bobby Osborne, Ben Sollee, Buzzard Rock String Band, and The Bluegrass Alliance Tribute - featuring the original 1968-era line-up of Dan Crary, Danny Jones & Buddy Spurlock with Michael Cleveland and Marshall Billingsley. Other performances by Glenn Lawson, Jack Lawrence, Steve Cooley, Robert Pool, Al White, Steve Cooley, Chuck Nation, Keith & Darrel Sanson, Marty Townsend, Danny Wiley, Bob Briedenbach, John Jump and many others.


PBS Television is filming the concert for a national broadcast Nov. 2009.

Sam's website - right now:

PRESS RELEASE: Nashville, TN March 11, 2009

"Sam Bush announced last week that he will not be participating in the Bluegrass Hotel Project and will not be performing at the festival in Louisville, KY on March 20, 2009.  There has been considerable misinformation and falsehoods disseminated regarding Sam’s decision, and it is time to set the record straight.

First, Sam will not be performing at the festival.  For many weeks, the Producer of the Project has used Sam’s name and likeness without his permission.  Despite being advised of Sam’s decision on March 5th, the Bluegrass Hotel website continues to list Sam as one of the featured performers.  The website’s information is not correct.

Further, Sam’s decision not to perform had absolutely nothing to do with money.  Contrary to statements posted on the internet by the Project’s Producer, Sam has never requested to be paid anything, including what is being fraudulently reported as requiring a $10,000.00 fee as an executive producer.  Any statements to the contrary are false.

For several weeks, now months, Sam had been unsuccessful in his attempts to obtain information relating to the Project’s financial and legal structure and unable to substantiate that all necessary agreements, clearances, and approvals had been obtained for completion of the Project.  Accordingly, after extensive consultation with legal council, Sam reluctantly decided he could not go forth in such a manner of chaos and liability."

Re: Letter to Monte regarding the PRIVATE PROPERTY of the Bluegrass Hotel

If I were the people at the BLUEGRASS HOTEL, I would be embarassed too death!!!!! The very idea of harassing people over things that have been posted or said - they should have gotten their act together on the front end and done things in the proper manner and they wouldn't have this problem.

There is an old saying of "What goes around comes around" and I truly believe that if you set out on a mission of wrong doing - it will come back to bite you in the butt!  I believe that is what is happening at this very moment to the Bluegrass Hotel bunch.  The whole show is falling apart right before their very eyes. 

Some times things are a matter of PRINCIPLE!!!!!

I think they still had John and Tony until the crap was posted dissing Sam on the myspace page for The Bluegrass Hotel. Just my opinion.
