Steve Miller Band Calls Foul On Az. Promoter


CASPER, Wyo. (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Steve Miller band has called on authorities to investigate a concert promoter who the band claims alleges them for a gig with a bad $90,000 check.

According to the Casper Star-Tribune, a representative from the band contracted Casper police after a $90,000 dollar check that Arizona-based promoter Rob Green with Elli Live LLC allegedly paid the band for a November 2008 appearance in Casper.

The phone number that was used by Green has been reassigned to another business and Casper police have assigned a detective to investigate the matter, the Star-Tribune said.

"The venue was packed and the fans loved it and we loved it. The business was great," the band's manager, Scott Boorey, told the Star-Tribune. "With the fans and the city and the state of Wyoming, we have no bone to pick whatsoever."

Events Center Marketing Director Tiffine Canepa told the Star-Tribune that the venue had been paid.

"It's unfortunate in this industry that this happens," Canepa told the Tribune. "Even if we weren't affected, we don't want anybody to get burned." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
