Brief Recap:
NAARAP & The LA Music awards Co-Owner Bruce E Wisner of Highline Entertainment is suing his partner Al Bowman, seeking an injunction to stop this years 12th Annual LA Music Awards show. Wisner is also further suing Mario Maglieri (owner of the Rainbow Bar & Grill, Whiskey-a-go-go and also named as the lifetime honorary mayor of the sunset strip).

Wisner, A Colorado resident, came to town to build his organization NAARAP, (North American Academy of Recording Artists and Producers), an organization which claims non-profit status by providing music scholarships for inner city kids. To date, no scholarships have been given, nor have any qualifications or applications been provided. Wisner is endorsed by Oppenheimer Funds Services & Highline Entertainment.

Al Bowman, founder of the LA Music Awards has been putting on the show annually for the last eleven years to honor local musicians. He was inspired by a 3 hour conversation he had on March 3, 1991 with legend of the Sunset Strip Bill Gazzarri. During the conversation, which occurred only 3 days before he died, Gazzarri bequeathed onto Bowman the title of “Godson of Rock-n-roll” then handed him his trademark white Fidora hat and gave him his blessing to go out and be the voice of independent music in Los Angeles. Some of those who have gone on to success following recognition from the LA Music Awards include Alien Ant Farm, Everclear, Zebra Head, Jennifer Paige, Save Ferris, Tia Texada and others. On November 21st 2000, the Mayor of Los Angeles declared the day to be LA Music Awards day. Angels on Earth Music For Healing Foundation will be honoring Al Bowman at their November 14th sixth annual awards banquet.

If you are a musician or one who simply believes in the freedom of music, please show your support.

Keep the Music Alive!!!
