I read warnings about King Ryan events over and over but never heeded the warning. The reason is because I saw the ishowcase events on youtube and it seemed fun and great for apsiring artists looking to move on from the open mic stage to bigger events. King Ryan Showcase is supposed to be at the Hard Rock Cafe on Atlanta on May 18th and the venue has not been rented yet!!!
Before I realized this, I filled out the contract agreeing to pay $300 or sell tickets at $20 a piece. The contract states the tickets that have not been sold must be send back if the amount sold did not add up to $300! Well luckily I DIDNT get the tickets or the money. But I got a phone call yesterday asking for my address to send the tickets. The man on the phone claimed I didnt fill out much on the contract when i DID.
But I didnt put my physical address on it. I noticed the contract says "if he event is cancelled, NO REFUNDS will be given". What fool is going to shell out $300 when the venue has not been rented and the event is a month away! This showcase was supposed to be in March but was CANCELLED because the venue was not rented! I have a deep feeling these people are trying to take $300 from a starry eyed dupe and run!
There are suppsed to be record label execs there but the website NEVER lists who got signed because of the showcase! SCAM!!!!! Don't waste your time or money on this RIPOFF!!!! There are plenty of established events here in Atlanta that's MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE like the Sweet Auburn Festival, Crushhouse Entertainment, Time2Shine Atlanta, A105.com concert series and other events! Why for out $300 to someone who can't offer you s*it much less rent the venue???
