A channel 17 reporter caught up with the two attorneys representing the band and Kirt Webster, owner of Entertainment Evolution and Webster & Associates (named in The Grascals’ counter suit), and they squared off in a classic “he said/she said” fashion.
“Attorney for The Grascals, Rose Palermo, says, “He was bringing on merchandise to sell at some of the concerts and some of the merchandise were some of these Cracker Barrel items that were in boxes that looked like they came directly from a warehouse.”
And according to a contract signed by The Grascals those exclusive albums should not have come from a warehouse – they should have been bought from Cracker Barrel stores at retail value and then resold at performances…
Cracker Barrel would send the proceeds to St. Jude.
Representation for Webster says that is exactly what happened.
Philip Lyon, Attorney for Kirt Webster says, “We were surprised and shocked when we got it and based on our investigation there doesn’t appear to be any support for it whatsoever but we will let that play out in the court process.”
He says before the counter claim it was only a question of how much money was owed, not *whether* it was owed.”
