Psst…..those rooms don’t work!

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

There are so many great musicians playing in Oklahoma.  There is NOTHING like a great live show and there are many to see around the state.  Blues, bluegrass, jazz, folk, rock, the list goes on.  Oklahoma has a lot to offer and world class talent.

I got a call the other day from a musician and supporter of Musicians for Smoke-free Oklahoma/Breathe the Music.  He can’t and won’t (if can help it) play in smoky bars.  He was telling me all about a certain place (we won’t name it here) that is smoke-free.  “Well, they have the smokers in their own separate room!”

As much as one would think that a separately ventilated room keeps everyone else who chooses not to smoke protected – it doesn’t?   “What?”  ”I walk in and I don’t smell ALL of that smoke.”

Just as much as I hated to break it to him and now you, separate ventilation doesn’t  work.  They might keep some of the “smell” at bay or even mask the smell – it simply DOES NOT WORK!  Studies have been done and one right here in Oklahoma.

Nobody, a musician, your family and definately other employees are not protected from the hazards of secondhand smoke.  Not to mention, someone has to clean that room.

The only safe workplace for musicians, bartenders, wait staff and patrons is one that is 100% smoke-free.

Everybody has the right to breathe smoke-free air, no matter where they work.

Thanks Dwelling Spaces!

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Well – if you are from Tulsa then you probably know about Dwelling Spaces in The Blue Dome District.

What you might not know is that Dwelling Spaces hosts live music – amongst other things! When we were there, a new coffee bar was under construction – there is always something great to be had there.

True story - once I was shopping there for some Toms for my kid and Ben Folds was looking for a t-shirt for his wife and kids. You never know who you will see there.

Thanks Mary Beth for supporting Breathe the Music.  If you ever come to Tulsa, be sure to check them out.   http://www.dwellingspaces.net/
