Making a Scene brings you an interview with Trevor B Power!
Music was part of everyday life for Guitarist and Singer Songwriter Trevor B. Power. As the youngest of six in a bustling New Jersey household “Blues, Classical, Flamenco, Jazz, Opera, Pop, Swing, and even Rock & Roll all spun on my Parent’s Turntable.” Trevor’s love of playing music began when he received his first Hohner acoustic guitar on his 15th Birthday. Starting out with popular rock tunes of the 60’s & 70’s, he taught himself songs by ear and would entertain at parties with friends. Trevor spent the next 25 years in New Hampshire, Arizona, New York, and New Jersey playing in a couple of bands and performing solo acoustic at clubs and coffee houses.
It wasn’t until Trevor met and befriended Bobby Whitlock of “Derek and The Dominos” and his wife Coco Carmel that he was truly inspired to play and write more of his own music. At this time, he also became a DJ at northwest New Jersey’s station 91.9FM (WNTI.org), which opened his eyes to the volumes of great recorded music, mostly the Blues. Trevor schooled himself on the music business from local bands to national acts as he was spinning their music on air, hosting live performances in the studio, and interviewing the musicians. “You got to get out there and play.” Power said. “There is a lot of great talent and one needs to be on top of their game.” Trevor continues to host a radio show on WNTI.org with a focus on promoting local and national artists.
Motivation drove Trevor to practice, practice, practice, and before long, he was booking gigs with a full band again including the WNTI Band, which played several times at Kennedy Event’s WNTISTAGE, and Trevor B. Power & The Treblemakers. Both bands were blues, soul, and rock & roll influenced. Trevor was also fortunate to share the stage with Recording Artists such as Trudy Lynn, Bob Lanza, Steve Krase, Johnny Charles, Dave Fields and others at The Stanhope House Stanhope, NJ. America’s last great Roadhouse and other northwest New Jersey venues.
