What is a reasonable premium to charge for a New Years Eve gig? My band has been asked to do a New Years Eve gig and the bar has asked for a price. We are a rock cover band doing mostly danceable stuff for the 30-40+ crowd. We played there recently and got $500 for a night and they loved us - we're in regular rotation now. They can hold around 250 people and are normally pretty full. Their normal cover charge is $6 and they'll likely charge $12-$15 on New Years eve - but they don't charge the regulars or anyone the band brings in. So we were thinking of asking around $1250, maybe $1500. (the bar provides pa and lights, but the lights are minimal - we're going to offer to bring in an upgraded light system and someone to run them - 4 trees with 4 lights each and an awesome controller). No, I will not say where the gig is.
