LET MINORS PLAY ON A PLAY ONLY BASIS AT 21+ VENUES

Creative and talented minors should be able to express themselves through their music. The youth have dreams just like anyone else and should not be barred from playing 21+ venues on a play only basis. This means they are only allowed in the premises only while they are on stage performing and must leave directly after with parental or guardian permission with a written agreement from the minor that they will not engage in underage drinking or illegal activity while they are in, on or around the venue that they are playing at. This is a creative outlet that keeps minors interested in positive events rather than drugs, drinking, violence and etc. Please support the youth and their positive outlets.

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/lettheminorsplay BY KYM LAGRASSA The project I have decided to do is a petition and a proposal for minors to be able to play in 21 and over venues on a play only basis with parental permission. It is all too often perfectly talented children are being turned away and forgetting about their dreams. Music is a creative outlet for children whom could be doing much worse things. If parents give consent for their children to play in a bar with their supervision and it is on a play only basis; which means only allowed in the premises when on stage and playing, When they are done playing they have to exit the premises immediately. I foresee many challenges with this project, especially with parents and venue owners. When speaking with venue owners and management it is tied half think that there are too many problems with minors trying to stay in the venue and drink, and the other half think if monitored and rules and guidelines are set and everybody sticks to them that this can benefit the community. Part of this project will have a petition to get this proposal on the ballot. It is my hope that I will be able to at least open the communities eyes about providing places for children and adults alike to be able to share their talents, or the possibility of creating more all ages venues for musicians to be able to play their music without having to pay money that they cannot afford to rent a venue.

There really is a limited ammount of all-ages venues, and getting into them is nearly impossible for a up and coming group of musicians. I think it would be comparable to some of the R rated films I have seen numerous minor watch. I think in the end this would be more beneficial to the minor than a R rated movie, as well as the community they would be preforming in.
