After 42 years Music Adventures closed March 31, 2017
We Are Leaving the Web Site here For Memories--And Other Reasons
Thank You for almost a half century of your support!
One of the "other reasons" was to provide a place to keep track of
Mayor Gary Starr whose actions against the Music Adventures property
forced the closure and allowed Starr to take possession so that
he could demolish the building and sell the land to developers.
Those actions by Starr against Music Adventures included actual legislation
authored by Starr and passed without any hearing by an unsuspecting council
requiring immediate demolition of Music Adventures if the property was not
transferred to Starr for an unfairly low price. To avoid months of litigation
we allowed Starr to take ownership on March 31, 2017 at considerable financial loss.
Accordingly, we are not surprised at the findings of the independent reporting of
WKYC-TV Channel 3 (video links below) that began in August 2018 and was followed by the
reporting of cleveland.com and the Plain Dealer. We will continue to follow it and
update this page as appropriate. The links within the PDF files do not function but for
that you can Google the actual web story (so long as it remains active)
The most recent links are at the top.
