I think (and hope) that by ban on dancing, the article implies a ban on activities like Bar Dancing..

After 11.30 PM, deadline followed by a ban on dancing now its live music performances have left the DJs, musicians and party animals high and dry.

After a ban on dancing, authorities have now banned live music performances in pubs, restaurants and lounge bars. The concession, if any, being the permission to play background music at low volume provided it's not used to organise a discotheque.
So it is a crime to dance to music in Bangalore now?

That's brilliant. Just brilliant.

If anyone from the Karnataka government ever reads this: Super stuff, congratulations to you.
Now young people won't laugh, dance and enjoy themselves on saturday nights. The greatest of all Karnataka's problems are now officially solved. BRAVO!!

Jasmeet, a popular DJ in Bangalore, is one of those affected by the rule on live music performances and ban on dancing. He is slowly getting used to playing in empty clubs.
Dude, they're not talking about dance bars, lol

When governments have nothing to do, when going gets tough coz you cannot do what the people really want, when things do not move because you are incompetent, when you are not capable of what really needs to be done (build infrastructure, maintain law and order, bring in development, enable private enterprise to create jobs etc) power centers (not necessarily governments alone) will deflect attention.

This is just another gimmick at deflecting public attention from failures and inability of the govt to get its act together.

I was talking to a friend yesterday and according to him the problem with this live band performance is elsewhere. Apparently some hawks there want to interpret the "ban on live music" as also covering the DJs who play the party circuits and in the pubs. If that view is enforced the only allowable thing will be playing of CDs and records on a PA system since police is not keen on those high wattage boxes that produce the boom boom sound. In fact it was written somewhere in that article as well in a roundabout way IIRC.

I thought this was a joke, but sadly it isn't. Wow, isn't the ban unconstitutional or something?

Damn, suddenly kerala looks a lot better , empty(and non existent)pubs notwithstanding

As per my knowledge, ANY kind of dance is banned in all the places where they serve (sell) liquor. So this includes all the bars, pubs, clubs, lounge bars etc.

This has been in effect from more than 5 months now.

cheers:

For people who are thinking about some conspiracy by the govt, the ban on mixing alcohol and dancing was always there. Don't know about the live performances. No new law or rule was passed.

I think the police have just implemented (or misinterpreted some rule).

Anyway, this is the first time that people are protesting in such a big way and hope they will lift the ban on live performance etc.,

We have tons ans tons of such laws.

It is impossible to believe, but It is illegal to consume alcohol in Mumbai

You need permission to drink even in your home.
