Wednesday, 28 September 2011 Responds to CBC news release - RE: Oliver Soaps closing at Chocolate River Station

Atlantic Bands RESPONSE TO CBC Radio News Storey at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 27th, 2010

We are only involved with the Murray McLauchlan Show. An announcement for a new venue, to replace Chocolate River Station, will come this week. Unfortunately, we've had to find this information out via a sign on the door at Oliver Soaps. I had earlier been told, in a phone call to the Town of Riverview's Shane Thompson, that Oliver Soaps was moving out at the end of September. Mr. Thompson had not ruled out using the venue for the McLauchlan show but did not follow up as promised and has not returned our email inquirie(s). It is our firm belief that Concert promoter Don Coleman has been working very hard to make sure that all concerts, previously slated for Chocolate River, go ahead in alternative venues

Sept. 28, 2011 UPDATE: Don Coleman has confirmed the Moncton PRESS CLUB will host the October 19th Murray McLauchlan Event. All previously sold tickets will be honored at the new venue.
