Quotes

"There hasn't been anybody proactively seeking promotors or seeking concert series like they have at the AMP (Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers). … In order to make it more viable to use as an existing asset, we need to have a discussion with the city about who's in charge and what authority does someone have to book rather than just waiting for someone to call and say there's a date.

"This is only us looking at the financials," he said. "This has nothing to do with them as employees. We're still formulating (where the cuts will be made). There's nothing written in stone. But this is not a slam on employees, this is simply a financial matter.”"
