    D'oh! Just re-read your question and realized you specified the type and size of venue right there. I would say 20 watts is just fine for pub/bar gigs, provided we're takling about a tube amp and not a solid state amp.

    I'm with guitar bum-100watt should be enough. I can't tell from the video how big a room they're playing. You can fill a space with that kind of sound using only a 7.5watt Pignose amp if you're playing in a broom closet. Bigger rooms need more oomph
