A new wrinkle in the state’s coronavirus guidelines for bars, restaurants and similar venues in New York state prohibits them from offering live music that customers pay for separately. It seems to have suddenly popped up in the rules this week.


It means no events where patrons buy tickets to see a performance. It also appears to ban events with cover charges. And it prohibits venues from advertising live entertainment.


“This means that advertised and/or ticketed shows are not permissible,” the SLA guidelines say.




Many bars, restaurants and venues that had begun scheduling such events in recent weeks were taken by surprise. News of the new rules made the rounds among musicians and venue operators Tuesday.
“This is devastating,” said Julie Leone, co-owner of The 443 Social Club & Lounge on Burnet Avenue in Syracuse. The 443 had only reopened in the past few weeks. “This effectively shuts me down again.”
People in the entertainment industry say it’s especially frustrating because it seemed to come out of nowhere.


“It’s absolutely cruel,” said Syracuse musician Colin Aberdeen, who has only recently started playing live gigs again. “They’ve been dangling the idea that these venues can reopen, and then, arbitrarily and randomly they take it away. I mean I’m all for safety protocols, but they have to make sense. Why would they do this?”


Aberdeen and his band Los Blancos recently played a Sunday night gig at The 443, and had plans for more. Those are now cancelled. The 443 is a full-service bar and restaurant, but its business model depends on live music as the attraction.


But many bars and venues depend on special music events, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, to help pay the bills.
Leone said she’s going ahead with a non-ticketed event tonight featuring artist Peg Newell. After that ends, she’s turning the lights off.
That means a scheduled Aug. 22 show featuring national touring musician Griffin House is off. It was a ticketed event.


Leone said she spoke to a State Liquor Authority enforcement officer Tuesday, and was told the agency could automatically suspend the liquor licenses for any venues found to be advertising shows. That seems to be different from regular enforcement, in which officers physically visit the venues to verify non-compliance.
She’s spending this morning wiping any references to shows off her social media sites.
“We put a lot of time, effort and money into reopening,” Leone said. “We put in social distancing, we do temperature checks that many places don’t, we rearranged the seating. And we got open. And now this. It’s just incredibly frustrating.”

The Emperor apparently thinks we are having too much fun, so he decided to send out the gestapo (SLA) to goon people into making sure restaurants die in NYS

I guess the “order food” while in a bar/restaurant didn’t work to destroy these businesses?
