ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The pleas for leniency by Brickhouse Studio manager David Loving, his relatives, and recording artists who use the studio, fell on deaf ears at a license revocation hearing today at city hall.

City Commissioners voted 6-0 to revoke the business license of Brickhouse Studio after a lengthy string of violence, culminating with the murder of 20-year-old LaSheldon Stanford on February 14th.

Recording artists Erica Ferguson, Brian Roberts, and Shabrina Lavant joined relatives of Daniel Loving is support of the studio, saying that it was vital to their music careers. The artists told the commission that closing the studio would be a blow to their dreams in the music industry.

Daniel Loving said that he did not get a fair hearing with the commission. He said that many other people have been shot at other establishments, including the Albany Mall, with having their licenses revoked.

Mayor Willie Adams spoke for the commission, saying that the evidence showed that alcohol was being sold at Brickhouse, and it should be shut down as a protection to the community.

The Turner Field Road establishment was cited by city Commissioner Jon Howard as a nuisance and eyesore, producing numerous police calls, going back over 18 months.
