I thought I would share this with the Mahaffey and your network of musicians: We at CoastBrothers.com are kicking off our Songwriting Competition Sunday with our first sponsored stream of DTSP Live: Saved By Streaming. www.coastbrothers.com/contest/ The competition is meant to engage the community in a positive way during these difficult times. We welcome feedback! Be the positive change you wish to see.

Let's go back to work!
I have seen many questions from people regarding whether or not the Pink Floyd Laser Light Show is still on as scheduled or if it is going to be postponed/rescheduled. I have not seen one response to those questions which is really disappointing. For us to spend our hard earned money at your establishment but not given 2 seconds of your time to put some minds at ease. Very unprofessional. It will def make me think long n hard whether I will be attending anymore events at Mahaffey Theater after 3/20/2020. You have alot of aggravated people out here. Yeah the few people you lose won't hurt your bank account but we should still matter.
I would like to know why the Mahaffey Theater has not cancelled, postponed or offered refunds to ticket holders for upcoming events due to the Corona virus. This sounds like they are being greedy and don't care about spreading the virus. I hope that everyone remembers this greed and boycotts the Mahaffey or Sue's them if they get sick.
This theatre seems like such an interesting venue with so many amazing shows and performances happening all the time! I am so excited for the Gasparilla International Film Festival that is happening later this month, March 17-22! The festival has so many exciting new films this year including Resistance starring Jesse Eisenberg. There is sure to be several credible speakers involved with the festival this year including an actor from Resistance, hopefully Jesse! There is so much to talk about this year at the festival which includes something for everyone regardless of age or taste. I hope you can come out to GIFF and have fun with other members of the Entertainment Industry while screening some cool new films!
