press release, Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians said:
We all know how important live music is to both working music professionals and to those just starting out in their career. The previous regime made it increasingly difficult to put on live music gigs and saw all kinds of venues threatened with fines.
Now, musicians will be free to earn a living and hospitals [live concerts in hospitals? Doesn't sound beneficial to convalescence], schools and other venues including pubs will finally be able to put on live concerts without have to seek permission to do so from a council.Noise and safety implications have been raised by some, perhaps overly, concerned individuals and groups. But for this Kat, it is one area that was deserving of deregulation.
