On Monday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m., 2019 Nightclub & Bar Show speaker Wyatt Magnum will team up with Steele Platt, the man behind the massively successful Yard House chain of bars and restaurants. During “Make Money with Your Music,” the two will share how operators can boost revenue through playlists.

Those who attended Magnum’s 2018 Nightclub & Bar Show education session will recall that he discussed Platt’s deep involvement with Yard House music programming. Together, this powerhouse pairing will explain how to program the right music for a bar, restaurant, hotel or nightclub; selecting the right music service; understanding music licensing; dayparting; beats-per-minute; music genres that make money; and unlocking hidden revenue potential by improving music through their carefully crafted and scientific methods.

Below you’ll find six albums that Magnum recommends operators utilize this holiday season. Playing holiday music from Black Friday through Christmas is, after all, a cliché for a reason: it’s expected and it works. But these albums were selected by Magnum for their fresh approach that won’t drive away guests or make team members insane.
