BIOGRAPHY

Power of Music Productions is an independent company that combines booking, promotion, and producing live music events.  "Event coordination" is the term that company executive Andrew S. likes to use when asked if Power of Music personnel are promoters or booking agents. "We book the dates, the acts, promote the show and run everything else from guest lists to the sound engineers. We take on the roles of promoters, agents and a whole lot more. "Unlike most other business people doing similar things, this company is run by a musician that understands their language and overall needs." The "Power of Music story is as follows......
My name is Andrew Sullo (pronounced Sue-Low) and music is my biggest passion. In the late eighties, I was a local teenage musician who had a dream of making it big like all the bands I idolized growing up. I practiced day and night (the bass guitar) and basically would perform anywhere on any day at any time. I also recorded when I could. Some of my post bands include: "The Dreaded" (heavy metal) "Jabba Joans What?" (alternative rock), and for a short time: Second To None a hardcore/metal act, that had broke the record of the legendary Ramones for best draw ever in a Queens venue (412 persons). (The record was previously held by The Ramones at 370, back in the late 70's. S.T.N. broke it in 1992. Later broken by Zebra in 2000, and then by E Town Concrete and finally Mad Ball, both in 2001) Like most others, I found myself getting no where and fed up with the local scene. I was not looking for folks to roll out the red carpet every time I played, (I did not even care if I had a stage), I was just looking for a decent sound and a little courtesy and respect. With all due respect to the venues and the individuals who ran things, I found that most of the people involved with the local scene were more interested in making $$$ then putting together a decent show. I vowed to one day change that, and to a small degree I think I have, with the help of my company: "Power of Music Productions".
Power Of Music is an event coordination company or simply a booking agency and promotion co. rolled into one. Back in early 1995 I put this together along with a few good friends and my girlfriend Donna, who is now my wife. We started with one band and one place. Since then over 2100 acts and 300 venues have come our way. Our resumes include such acts as: Gilby Clarke, Leif Garret, White Lion, LA Guns, Overkill, Quiet Riot, Zebra, Original Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Diano, Missing Persons, John Waite, Kittie, Sponge, Crowbar, Slyvain Slyvain (New York Dolls). as well as the venues : "Vibrations", The Kings Club, The Voodoo Lounge, Mr. Beery's, The RedZone, CBGBS Cranberries, Zebra Club and Webster Hall.
We are proud to be the first promotion co, that introduced L.I. to the now legendary acts: E Town Concrete, Erocktica and Legend (now known as ZO2) as well as the last to do the farewells of "The Vibrators" and "The UK Subs".
Today, although Power of Music is a profitable business, the individuals that run it care about musicians and each show and every show. We pride ourselves in what we know and who we are. We are looking to find people that love listening to music and going to see local shows and "club size concerts" in the New York area. Also bands and musicians looking to perform and join open jams/mics organized by myself and other individuals.
Andrew's other passions include journalism, poetry and other types of writing plus watching films. He is a huge collector of both music and movies and other types of rock n roll memorabilia.
