When Chattanooga Rocked http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/when-chattanooga-rocked/ Former Sound Seventy staffer and music industry veteran Ben Jumper says the city’s venues need now what they had 30 years ago—real managers. Learn from Track 29, he says, and the Auditorium and McKenzie Arena could quickly rock again. en-us <function copyright at 0x6893668> Mon, 29 Apr 2013 19:25:37 GMT when Chattanooga rocked http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/when-chattanooga-rocked/ 196ff00e-b124-11e2-9770-1231394043be Mon, 29 Apr 2013 19:25:37 GMT Article Points http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/when-chattanooga-rocked/ afebd202-9089-11e2-a80a-1231394043be Tue, 19 Mar 2013 07:39:40 GMT Bands http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/when-chattanooga-rocked/ d7c210ba-8fbd-11e2-b0e7-1231394043be Mon, 18 Mar 2013 07:20:30 GMT Article Points
"His answer? While he has no political or business interests in Chattanooga or it’s venues, Jumper’s formidable experience and instincts all point to one key message and the missing element: management."

Now, I know political or business interests can mean different things to different people. But doesn't Mr. Jumper's daughter work hospitality at Track 29? Doesn't this by default make him want to talk about specific venues doing well? Isn't talking about one venue over another technically political?

I am not disagreeing with Mr. Jumper and this is by no means anyway to knock anyone down. Track29 has done an amazing job to fill in a much needed void. Just wanted to point this out as feedback. As I said, political or business can mean different things to different people.

Great job overall on the article. Lovin' it!]]>
