Bandwagon Interview Patrick Power, Promoter At The Power Bar


Patrick is the booker and promoter at Power’s Bar. Power’s is a live music venue on Kilburn High Road, London. Hosting nightly live music from the best up-and-coming bands but also from established acts including Laura Marling to The Undertones – It continues to be at the forefront of London’s new music scene. They NEVER host ‘pay-to-play’ gigs.
BW: What is the role of a music promoter?

PP: My main role as a promoter is to ensure that the venue I work for has a quality line up of live music every night of the week. I’ve got to ensure the bands I book are bands that draw a crowd and won’t clear the venue when they play!

BW: How does the promoter/artist relationship work?

PP: Basically, the promoter and artist have to discuss what will work best for both the band and the venue. Most venues will like to have bands on as late as they can – the later, the busier the bar – but most acts will want to catch the last train or get back to bed! It’s finding a meeting point half way, making both parties happy, that is the most important part.
