We can't afford MUMFORD & SONS!
Our mayor and city manager have taken $550,000 from the reserve funds to pay this group up front for this concert. The people in Troy, OH, are paying NOT ONE CENT.
Mumford just called us one of their "sh!t" venues. Back at ya, boys.
August is major hurricane month, BTW.

The reserves is all tax payers money. Residents--a town of 13,000--are funding this fiasco for YOU.

Ben Lovett the keyboard player told The Sun the band would be taking the rest of 2013 off. This was reported by nme.com on July 29, 2013. City officials are being played by this band. AC Entertainment is out for the money and could care less about the city of St. Augustine and its residents. Go back to Tennessee and take Mr. Regan, Mr. Boles and Mr. Ste. Claire with you.
