Prince of Wales St. Kilda Confirms Commitment To Live Music

The Prince Bandroom’s future has been in doubt recently, but today The Melbourne Pub Group confirmed that it will continue its newly acquired pub as a live music venue.

Booking the artists will be Jamie Bennett, who has been behind the music at Adelaide’s Rocket Bar for the last six years.

“Many Melbourne journeys were chasing live shows and more often than not I ended up at The Prince Bandroom. I am excited and humbled to now be part of this great live music venue,” Bennett said in a press release.

If this isn’t good enough news, the new owners have also confirmed that the front bar will also host live music seven nights a week.

“We want to support up and coming local bands so there’ll be live music every night in the public bar,” Julian Gerner of the Melbourne Pub Group said in a presser. “The Bandroom has been, and is, an incredible space to see high profile touring acts, but the size of room makes it difficult to include emerging artists. This is a way for the venue to foster young talent and engage with the community seven nights a week. And it’s an exciting way to get that small band culture back into the Prince of Wales.”

This news comes just a day after the announcement of a new venue opening in Northcote, the Regal Ballroom, but it also caps off a week of sad news, where the East Brunswick Club was confirmed to be closing.

Upcoming gigs at the Prince include Yacht Club DJs, Dashboard Confessional, Roots Manuva, Cornershop and M83.
