Concerts temporarily banned at White Oak Music Hall

The show will not go on at White Oak Music Hall.

HOUSTON - The show will not go on at White Oak Music Hall.

A judge has signed a temporary restraining order for the music venue after its neighbors complained about the noise.

The venue can hold one more outdoor show on Saturday, and then it must cancel all shows until another hearing on Jan. 12, 2017.

White Oak Music Hall released the following statement:

“After being sued by a handful of nearby residents, White Oak Music Hall defended a request for a restraining order during a two-day court hearing. Over the past two days, Judge Gomez carefully weighed the concerns of both sides and, with great care, fashioned a short-term, 14-day order.  In crafting his order, he rejected the neighbors’ request to halt the development of White Oak Music Hall’s outdoor stage, which was the primary component of the neighbors’ request. The project to construct the permanent outdoor stage will move forward. Judge Gomez did, however, prohibit White Oak Music Hall and Raven Tower from hosting live music events with amplified sound for the next two weeks, with the exception of an event occurring on Saturday, December 17.  White Oak Music Hall and Raven Tower operate within the confines of the Houston sound ordinance, and we disagree that the concerts produce unreasonable noise.  Efforts to resolve this issue with the residents that have chosen to sue the venue will continue, but in the meantime, we look forward to hosting all our other shows and events scheduled for the indoor venues at White Oak Music Hall.”
