Boomerz/ Seminole ordinance Music Petition sign now

The City of Seminole intends on passing an ordinance requiring clubs and bars with a capacity of 100 or more in the city limits to hire off-duty officers AND will ban ALL people under 21 into the clubs. Many bands in the area, perhaps you included have members that are under 21 and also most have fans that are under 21! Those of you under 21 would no longer be allowed entry into Boomerz or any other club/bar, which means no more all ages shows, especially when we start booking more nationals.

"The ordinance is expected to come before the council on July 10 for preliminary approval. The final vote to approve it and a public hearing will be Aug. 14."

The public hearing for this will be July 18th according to Seminole's website.

We are urging all bands and fans (VOTERS) and BAR STAFF in Seminole to sign this petition and let them know what you think of this.

There is currently NO known issues we/they have with underage drinking at any establishments in Seminole, so we are not sure why they are wanting to limit it. In our opinion they are just targeting younger people. You guess the reasons why.

The other problem of hiring off duty police is a concern for us as well. Right now in order to get assistance from them, the minimum the Sheriffs office requires is 4 off duty deputies and a off duty Sargent for a 4 hour time span! The cost on this is astronomical, and will inflate our costs past what we can endure. Their reasons for wanting to enforce it are because they want people to leave the clubs immediately and not loiter which could potentially cause conflicts in groups or be too loud for surrounding residents. While we agree, we could also handle this ourselves on most occasions.

The consequences for this ordinance passing will have one or two results. We will either have to pay too much for this, and have to close down, or we will likely have to abandon most of the genres of music, and possibly original music all together. We have to support what we can in order to stay in business.

I guarantee you as well, if Seminole does this, other cities and smaller bars may (will) also follow(Do you really think they're gonna stop at this????).

Please sign this petition to stop this new ordinance from happening. Live music is something that should be enjoyed by all and not by a select few based upon their age.
