The owners of the Skybox Bar and Grill have been granted a city amusement- John C.L. Morgan
license that will enable the embattled business to offer live entertainment. The
City Council voted to grant the license after a public hearing Monday, at which
co-owner Allen Moore described his plans to host comedy shows and live music.
Moore said he wanted to have four rock shows a year and deejays every other
month or so. He said he would schedule bands to play between noon and 8 p.m. and
use his own sound system, to minimize the volume. "I came to you 18 months ago
and $64,000 ago with just about the same proposal," Moore said at the meeting.
"I've had this vision since the beginning. It's been rough, but I'm positive the
hurdles are behind us. If there is a problem, we will pull the plug."
