MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The Alabama Music Box continues to rock and roll from its Dauphin Street location, but a lawsuit brought against it from its neighbors has cost them money for legal fees and now a plan to soundproof its building at a cost of $30,000.
"It's an enormous sum that we simply cannot provide on our own," said AMB co-owner David Mathews.
So the owners have turned to online fundraising and are now asking its loyal friends and fans to help out.
Those who donate could recieve one of several items the AMB is offering: Free shows, a free drink, T-shirts, and more.
Rumors swirled earlier last month that the AMB closed, but Mathews asserted otherwise.
"We currently have no plans to vacate our current location and want to do whatever it takes to ensure that we can continue to operate our beloved location at 455 dauphin Street," said Mathews.
The Alabama Music Box has been battling a noise concern lawsuit brought by its neighbors, Jeffrey and Patsy Jordan.
"If we are forced to move we will use all of your contributions to relocate as as possible so that we can continue to provide quality music to our city," said Mathews.
