Update: Ben Harper & Relentless 7 bows out of FMBQ Triple A conference
Update: We just received word that Ben Harper & Relentless 7's performance at the Fox slated for next Wednesday has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. Refunds are available at the box office and will be automatically administered for those who purchased tickets but haven't picked them up yet and for those who've already picked up theirs, refunds can be made directly at the box office. (Feel free to send a note to the staff of the Fox for more information.) Mindy Smith has been added to Wednesday night's bill in Ben Harper's stead.
With the recent consolidation of Radio & Records Magazine, which previously presented the annual Triple A Summit in Boulder, the future of the R&R Summit -- a veritable launching pad for acts in that format such as Jason Mraz that attracts program directors from across the country -- was in question. FMQB (Friday Morning Quarterback), another radio trade publication, has announced the FMQB Triple A Conference, which is slated to take place Wednesday, August 5 through Friday, August 7, at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder. Similar to the R&R Triple A Summit (previously the Gavin Triple A Summit), FMBQ's shindig will feature panels and over two dozen performances, including thirteen at the Fox, spread over three days, and an opening meeting featuring a special interview with T-Bone Burnett. See full line-up after the jump.
