GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The Gulfport City Council voted 4-3 to deny a noise variance appeal from the owner of Club Illusion.

The club’s owner, George Bush, applied for a noise ordinance variance to host an outdoor concert and crawfish boil at the 34th Ave. club on April 9. The concert would have coincided with spring break festivities and was planned to feature rap artists like Webbie and Lil Boosie.

Bush’s initial request was denied by Police Chief Leonard Papania due to continued noise complaints from neighbors living near the club.
