Kingwood talent agency sued by Moistboyz over East End, Montrose show
A Kingwood talent agency is being sued over claims it failed to pay the band Moistboyz for its performance in Montrose.
Stephen Haas filed a lawsuit on May 3 in the Harris County District Court against Kingwood’s Mike Kelly, doing business as Seemless Talent Agency, alleging breach of contract.
Haas says that he contracted with the defendant to set up a night for his band Moistboyz, consisting of musicians from other well-known groups such as Ween, Queens of the Stone Age and Butthole Surfers, to play a show in Houston. According to the brief, Seemless Talent first contracted Moistboyz to play at Meridian Bar in the East End, but then changed the venue to Numbers, in Montrose.
Moistboyz played the show at Numbers on Sept. 11, but claims the defendant breached their agreement by failing to pay for the performance as contracted.
Haas is seeking actual damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Jill Elsey.
