So, I have a younger cousin who is getting married, and at the family Easter gathering I threw out to him that he could get my cover band to play the reception. He seemed open to the idea if we would do it for less than the DJ quoted him, which was $1500. I'm sure the band would agree to beat $1500 - this is the group where the BL has hired us out to private parties for $300 (and then asked us to help cover airfare for him to fly back from CA where his job had taken him that week ). But we're not a classic wedding band with a repertoire of 300 top-40 hits to choose from, we're a year-old bar band with about 50 or 60 tunes, and not all of them guaranteed crowd-pleasers - you know, stuff that someone or other wanted to play. Still, I think we can pull it off, we have a lot of standard 80s stuff (Pat Benatar and 867-5309 and all that) and some more recent pop (Pink and Katy Perry) as well. The wedding is at least a year away, also, so there's plenty of time to learn new tunes they might request. So - thoughts, experiences, warnings, advice, all welcome. What price would you guys offer, and on what terms, and what should we expect? PS - Not entirely sure what to expect as far as the character of the crowd, like whether we'll have drunk Uncle Harry barfing on the amp or something. They're not a hoity-toity couple. My cousin's side is pretty religious and most of them don't even drink. Her side is apparently not particularly religious and I don't know what they're like.
