I currently play bass and do most of the lead singing in a band. Our aspirations are small, we do it for fun and the occasional money we make. Ive made it very clear that I dont play at places where smoking is allowed and this doesnt go over well with some bandmates. We get asked to play paying gigs where there is smoking and I tell them no way, doesnt matter how much smoking there is, how good the ventilation is, or how much it pays, I just wont do it. Ive told them I will step aside if they find someone to replace me, well all remain friends, but this rule is simply non-negotiable for me. Heres my question that Im looking for opinions on. I may be moving to another area in the next year or two and would try to find a gig in another band. If I look to join a band, how much of a deal breaker would it be if I tell them this? Im a good bass player with a very good voice and tons of gigging experience, Im extremely confident in what I do. Im not looking for opinions or advise on how to change my ways or whether you think Im being a jerk (I probably am). Im looking for your opinion if I was auditioning for your band. What would you say?
