No More Music at Madlin's Coffee House

Some bad news about a popular hang out for live music lovers. Madlin's Coffee House, located in the Adobe Plaza, on the corner of Jefferson and Overland in Temecula, was ordered by the City of Temecula to cease playing live music. At 11:00am this morning, city officials told the coffee shop that no more bands could play there effectively immediately. Hence, tonight's shows, and all future shows are cancelled.

Madlin's was the only "alcohol-free" place in Temecula where young adults could go to hear live rock music, and where parents didn't have to worry about being subjected to drunken crowds. Many local area bands relied on Madlin's to showcase their talent.

At issue is a $3,800.00 "Conditional Use Permit" that the City requires in order to play live music. Neither Madlin's nor their event promoter, Full Value Entertainment, was willing to pay the non-refundable fee, because the City would not guarantee that a permit be granted.

Bill Gould, who operates Full Value Entertainment, plans to announce a new location next week in Murrieta where the music will continue playing. The first gig, dubbed "The Big Summer Bash" is scheduled for July 30. In addition, Bill announced a location in Fullerton where his company will also book bands.

Frankly, Madlin's is going to lose business as a result of this, which means less tax revenue for the City of Temecula. And it sounds like Murrieta is going to win, because music lovers are going to there instead.

  1. Hi Steve. This is about Madlin's being a safe place for children. I know for a fact that it is not a safe place. I know someone who has been raped and beaten and tormented by a drunk lead singer of a band that played there. They were from Arizona.

  2. I don't know about this, not once was anything like that ever brought to my attention. If it was I would have made sure the offending party was arrested and prosecuted. Beyond any of that, Madlins has been closed since February of 2006.

    If this is a true story, lets get the offender in jail and soon, contact me at fullvalueentertainment@hotmail.com.

    Thank you,

  3. I KNEW THE OWNERS THAT STARTED MADELINE'S COFFEE HOUSE. THEY WERE A LOVELY YOUNG COUPLE TRYING TO MAKE THEIR OWN WAY FOR THEIR LITTLE FAMILY INSTEAD OF WORKING FOR SOMEONE ELSE AT A JOB. THEY HAD A WONDERFUL LITTLE PLACE THERE, WITH GREAT SERVICE AND GREAT CUSTOMERS! AND IT LOOKS LIKE TEMECULA KILLED THEIR BUSINESS AND THEIR LIVELYHOOD. SO MUCH FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM! POLITICIANS ARE SKILLED AT THE ART OF MANIPULATION TO GET WHAT THEY WANT! THEY PROBABLY HAD A PROJECT OF THEIR OWN AND DIDN'T WANT THE COMPETITION. THIS IS THE VERY REASON THAT SO MANY PEOPLE FAIL TO START THEIR OWN SMALL BUSINESS, BECAUSE THE BIG GUYS DON'T LIKE IT, AND YOU GET SQUASHED LIKE A BUG ON THEIR WINDSHIELD. UNLESS OF COURSE THEIR IS SOMETHING IN IT FOR THEM!
