Mannequins Reunion Cancelled!
Disney has rejected my offer to have a Mannequins music night at Soundstage Club. The event had been tentatively planned for Saturday, May 2nd. I was fronting the entire cost of renting the club and meeting a $5000 drink sales quota with the idea of selling tickets to get my money back. And had the event not resulted in a financial loss to me, I was going to to do monthly rentals to keep this going. Our favorite DJ would have appeared.
The hangup seems to have been over the selling of tickets even though another music event organizer is doing just that elsewhere on Disney property, just not at PI. In an e-mail to me yesterday, my Disney rep wrote: Thank you for providing the information on (name of other event). Upon further research, I have found that they have a somewhat different set of circumstances and commitments that have afforded them the opportunity to offer tickets to pre-sell for their event. Unfortunately, we are not able to pass on that process to you.
So I regret to inform everyone that there is NOT going to be a Mannequins reunion at this time. (at least not at Pleasure Island)
