“As someone with asthma, it is hard for me to play gigs in smokey bars. I end up using my inhaler towards the end of the night. There were tours where I would go back to back in clubs with smoke and lucky now that many of those clubs are now non-smoking.” which is never a good thing for a professional vocalist. I’d love to see Tulsa become a smoke-free venue music city!”
