A note from Samuel D. Marshall: I want to start off by thanking everyone that I’ve met these last 2 1/2 years owning the business side of Eli’s Mile High Club. I succeeded my dream of becoming an official owner of a club, I by no means opened it to get rich, I opened it to save live music, and make it a fun place to come to and have a little fun. These past 2 years have been very difficult times for me trying to work a fulltime job, and then run and host at the club Eli’s Mile High, and then try to run my own band, and then try to find that happiness. Well the landlord decided to raise the rent by an anormous sum to where I could not take it anymore, so, I decided to say enough is enough so I decided to move on. So once again I want to thank everyone who came out and supported the club, and like the saying goes, I’ll see ya all down the road, take care everyone, and be true to yourself everything will be alright.
