Points To Consider


HIRE FEES depend on the circumstances and the number of musicians required.


Circumstances which will affect the cost:


Travelling time & distance to venue, whether accommodation is required, whether the event is open to the public, whether there is an admission charge, whether a percentage of the admission 'gate' is included as part payment, public holidays or a special time of year (e.g. Christmas), the get-in -out time, start and duration required, hospitality, and any other relevant factors.

Here are 2 examples as a rough guide for the Guitar Duo...


Music (up to 2 x one hour sets with a 15 minute break) for a Corporate Function or Promoted Concert held locally might incur a fee in the region of £100 per musician.


For 'Casual' gigs (lounge or restaurant), the fee would be less than for private functions, in the region of £75 per musician, depending on circumstances.


The above is only a rough guide and every gig scenario is negotiable.

Please email for a no obligation quote (see below), demo CD available.


The fee, arranged by written agreement, would be invoiced in advance and paid in full on the day.


On-site (private) car parking would be advantageous.


Other considerations:.


Sufficient floor area to accommodate musicians & equipment. Safe mains electricity supply on the band-stand. Lighting may need to be considered.


Outdoor events might be considered between May and September but only under water-tight cover with proper staging or other safe flooring and electrical supply.  Once a band-stand is set-up it cannot easily or quickly be dismantled or moved if it rained.


If you would like more information without any initial obligation, then please please email to provide some basic details e.g. the nature of the booking, the date, location, parking facilities. We would then let you know about availability and provide a quote.

Plan ahead - Please make your enquiry about live music (private functions) in advance of your event taking place.
