How much does a band cost?
Band pricing has many variables – the popularity of the band, travel requirements, day of the week and season of the event are just a few of the things that can impact the price. Generally speaking though, band prices for a private event can range from $2,500 all the way up to $15,000 or more for the most popular bands.
How long will the band play?
You get 180 minutes (3 hours) of music in a 4 hour block of time to allow for breaks. Usually 3-4 sets with short breaks in between. Bands will also be glad to provide pre-recorded music between sets.
Does the band supply all the equipment needed for the show?
The band will supply all the necessary production for the event – instruments, sound system and light show. The only things that need to be provided at the venue are a stage and adequate electricity. In the event that there is no stage available, something can usually be worked out.
How early do I need to book a band?
Sooner is always better. 6 to 12 months in advance is recommended. The further out you book, the more choices you are likely to have regarding availability. The most popular bands book up months in advance.
