Smoking in Venues

fantasic 1 Jun 2004 11:49

I would like to put out the Question to everyone what do you think about banning smoking in Pubs? Or Venues in General.

Over this last month I recently played in a very smoke filled pub, which after coming off stage I had very much diffculty in breathing and had to rush off after playing. I recently over this last weekend went back to the same pub but had a sign on the bass drum saying "Smoking Sux and Kill's" and wore a dust musk (very hard to play in indeed) Which the reaction was mixed. Personally I would like smoking to be banned in all public places which it could very well go a head over the next couple of years.

What do you think? Should it be banned? Do you find you go to venues that have solved the smoking problem where they have put in ventalation systems? Is that the answer? Or should Venues have to have a license to let smokers smoke or have allicated areas for smokers?

Should Performers have the right to decide weather it's a smoke free night?

Tell me what you honestly think, this is going to be an on going research for me over the next few months.

Thankyou.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I have played gigs at Uni bars where smoking is banned from inside the venue. I find half the crowd spend their time outside smoking or hanging out & talking with friends that are smoking. People that wanna see the band are inside but it's hard to win over new people if they aren't inside to see you.

As long as adequate ventilation exists, smoking should not be an issue.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

most venues can't afford or won't fork out for ventilation - so the punters and muso's suffer.

It could be classified as an occupational hazzard - alongside decibel abuse.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I have played in smokey pubs for the last 20 years. However I recently played Ding Dong and also went to see the Dirtbombs there, why no ventilation at these places?? Is it the associated costs?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

You non-smokers need a dose of Bill Hicks.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

i agree with fantastic except for the fact that the mixed feelings he detected from his sign were probably due to his spelling of "kills" with an apostrophe.
many places do need much better ventilation though, and then there would be no smoke issues.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
