Jimmy LaFave wants to be able to Breathe the Music

Jimmy LaFave wants to be able to Breathe the Music from Paula Warlick on Vimeo.

Before hitting the stage in Tulsa, OK at the Blue Dome Diner, Jimmy LaFave took a moment to talk about why smoke-free is an important issue to him.

As a non-smoker – Jimmy sometimes plays in smoke filled venues which make him breathe in lots of secondhand smoke.

Studies show that musicians breathe in so much secondhand smoke while playing one show, that it is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes.

If you every get a chance to see Jimmy LaFave – you should! It was a great show! To find out if he is playing near you, you can go to: http://www.jimmylafave.com/. This July, he will be at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.

Jimmy LaFave is NOT a second-class citizen, help clear the air in his workplace.

Breathe the Music wants to thank Mr. Jimmy LaFave for his support!

As a non-smoker, Jimmy’s workplace isn’t always smoke-free. Together we can change that!

Please invite your friends and fellow-musicians to join our facebook fanpage.

Currently musicians are considered second-class citizens in Oklahoma.

Everyone – no matter where they work or perform – deserves to breathe clean air. Nobody should have to choose between their health and a paycheck.

Show YOUR support!

Nobody should have to choose between their health and a paycheck.  Just ask these musicians.  They can’t do it alone and neither can we – take time to show your support and sign the petition.  NOW is the time to take the smoke out of bars and music venues – so that we can all BREATHE THE MUSIC!
