City Paper is not for tourists
“The American Music Ball has been cancelled, according to a rep for the Marriott Wardman Park hotel where it was to have been hosted.
However, some of its big-name entertainers will find a home at another struggling inaugural fete — the Heroes Ball, which suffered a sudden loss of its talent lineup over the weekend. Among the names headed to the Heroes Ball are George Clinton, Ben Vereen and Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, according to a rep for the Heroes Ball.
And whither the AMC’s biggest names? Dionne Warwick and Ludacris were set to host the dual “Legends” and “Urban” parties. We’ll let you know if we find out. . .”
Maybe they should have returned Washington City Paper’s phone calls for our Balls preview piece!
