Pricing Yourself - Private Events
We do similar although we don’t advertise it. We have a set price for our full 4 hour show with PA, Lights and soundman. We then have a price without PA and lights, a corporate/private party price, an acoustic price and a festival price.
One thing we will also do is take a lesser fee for a new club. As long they know what our normal fee is when they re-book us, this gives them a chance to “see how it goes”. We’re confident of our show and draw that it’s never been an issue.
Lastly, when I was in a touring band with label/booking support, we’d get a minimum guarantee that was fair IF no one showed up and then a percentage of the door over x amount of people. That way if there are more people than expected everyone makes more.
