Theconcert was suppose to feature Coolio, Naughty by Nature and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.Now because of a dispute with the booking agent both Naughty by Nature and BoneThugs-N-Harmony may not be attending.

He says the agent was not actuallygiving the performers their money and some of them backed out. Craig says hewas counting on this show to help keep the community center running.

"Thiswould be epic, monumental, for this community center," said Craig.
