I am really excited about this. I have never seen them before, even though I think only one of the originals are left, still looking forward
I believe that you're getting confused with SeaWorld Orlando's Bands Brew & BBQ event, this is Busch Gardens Tampa's event. They aren't getting beat up by the Blackfish trolls. And for the record I do believe Scotty and Justin are still in for SeaWorld's Bands Brew & BBQ.
There were a few a posts on the announcement on BGT's facebook page that were removed by the park. I think there's still one left. But so far, nothing to the level that SeaWorld has endured in coverage and response.
Just a note, Sugar Ray's website no longer lists their performance on February 16th. Not sure that means anything, but wanted to make it known in case someone goes looking for it.

Below is the screenshot from when it was on their site:

EDIT: BGT is being dumb and keeps removing/ re-adding the posts. So far they haven't re-added it. But 2 bands dropped out.
The bands cancelled?! Already?! I had a bad feeling that the connection would be made, and that this might happen. I think it might just be for the greater of good if BGW didn't announce their concert line-up at all, and just have them show-up with no warning. That seems like the only way we'll be able to get bands to play at the park.

By the way, whatever Evan's trying to embed is not showing up on my end, at all.
