Moving in next door to a known and established music venue and then complaining about the noise is like moving into a sewage works and then complaining that it smells of excrement.
Worthing’s Bar 42 has recently been hit with such a charge, joining a long list of music venues to suffer such a fate. But, with a little funding to provide more soundproofing, it can be saved.
The Bad Billy Band have a special affinity with Bar 42, as I am sure many other local bands do, having played there more times than we have kept count. For over two years we also hosted a monthly residency, ‘Tavern Tales’, which saw us grow from fledging, nervous unknowns, all the way to confident, established unknowns.
This venue, being the only one in Worthing to provide a stage and platform for original bands, is not only desirable to be saved, but also imperative if the town has any commitment to supporting local artists.
