It is a little different though because the bar isn't charging people to come see the band. They only make money on the food served. This is analogous to FOX and or the NFL charging for the bar showing a football game.
But the bar is using the band to encourage people to come hear the band. Although some customers may not care about the music and show up anyway, "Live Music" is virtually always seen as a draw.

Spot on. Pay the fee. I would hope that the band would prefer to receive a little less for their performance than to not be paid at all.
