Live music law changes welcomed

NEW MEASURES: Aim to give a boost to trades where music is currently prohibited.

Plans to allow live music in restaurants have been welcomed by a spokeswoman for Nerja Town Hall.

The government of Andalucia is working on draft proposals, which have been widely publicised, to update the law with new measures aimed at giving a boost to those trades where it is currently prohibited.

The plans entail input from a wide variety of groups and agencies, including unions, employers, consumers and the representatives of residents’ groups.

Mari Carmen González Ortega, from Nerja Town Hall, said she regarded a change in the law as a positive move in terms of its impact on the restaurant and hotel trades.

The main issue has been noise levels into the night and their effect of people living nearby.

The restrictions can be complicated for bars and pubs and require the licence classification ‘con musica,’ but restaurants and cafés cannot have music.

There are also rules about the maximum permitted decibels level and whether loudspeakers and amplifiers, etc. are permitted to face out of the establishment.

      This could be relatively simple, 12 midnight limit on establishments that are not sound proofed or for outside performances in bars and restaurants would seem reasonable. It is a shame on a society or a country when an authority bans live music, I think it reflects a miserable type of person or people, it just needs reasonable control so those seeking a nights sleep can get what they want also!

      Music is an important part of any human culture, if it is live music then even more important and better 🙂
