best Olympus lens for shooting bands in bars

I'm new to m43. Have a e-pl5 with the two basic zooms.  Would like to get a nice prime to shoot bands at bars. Not sure if the 17mm 1.8 or the 25mm 1.8 would be better.  I'm thinking the 45mm is probably a bit long. Anybody shoot bands in bars with recommendations? I like to get more close up pics of one guy at a time more so than full band pics.  Listen to a lot of blues where the singer/guitarist is my main interest.  I use a sony dsc-hx20v for video, which is outstanding.
