Past Clients  The band began as a seven-song ‘Guest Spot’ at Oliver’s Nightclub in downtown Hamilton on June 14, 1986.   By the end of that summer, POWERHOUSE was the house band at Sax’s Roadhouse in the east end of the  city, and Harry’s Roadhouse in the centre of town by year’s end.  The early years of the band saw the band playing everywhere locally as they built up their name and  reputation:  different nightclubs, special events, corporate parties, various festivals, private parties and  weddings.   In the over quarter-century of the band’s existence, they’ve performed well over 1,000 shows to  as far west as the USA midwest and as far east as Portimao, Portugal.  As time has passed, the band has  moved away from regular local nightclub work to concentrate more on corporate events, charity functions,  outdoor festivals and theatre shows.  They still play clubs locally but mostly to ‘stay in touch’ with their local  fan base.  The band has never focused too heavily on promotion, personal or otherwise, and has chosen  instead to remain rather enigmatic, building a reputation through client referrals, re-dates and the strength of  their live performances.  There are currently three distinct, self-contained shows in the band’s repertoire:  1)     The regular Powerhouse show, made up of a 60’s/70’s, Blues Brothers/Motown/Soul revue, mixed with      a blend of very danceable, well-known rock songs.  2)     A Chicago Transit tribute show, focusing heavily on the earlier Chicago Transit Authority material.  3)     A Rod Stewart Tribute Show, called “Tonight’s the Night” with Dave Battah as Rod Stewart.  All Powerhouse members have had multiple decades of experience in the music business and contribute to  the various shows in different ways and, when needed, on different instruments.  Since each show is unique,  promotion, sound clips, videos (where available), stage plots and other information are unique, as well.  The  band is constantly working in these areas as it continues to add new material to each of their shows.  The ‘Past Clients’ button in the navigation bar to the left lists the band’s performance history, divided into four  main groups:  Outdoor Festivals and Concerts, Corporate Events, Theatre Shows and Nightclub  Performances.  In most instances, the band has played multiple times at the same venue, often spanning  many years.  For information on the band’s availability or booking information, contact Carlo at:  or phone (905) 548-0058
