This thread is not about how much you make in your band. But about how much you make after all expenses are met. You can even use inflated prices. But the net amount should be truthful. I'll go first based on average. Four piece band wanting 1200 or 300 a man.sometimes more depending on the door. We always negotiate for the door. It can be the gravy. Time is money right. For Arguments sake let's say it's a local gig. So no travel expenses. So set up took 2 hours at 25 per hour so that expense cost was 200. To make it simple no meals so 0.00 expenses. Drinks are 1/2 price including the wife's so drinking expense is 30 per man at 120.00.!Tips aren't guaranteed so go with 0.00 bad night. Then tear down 25 per man so 200. Total expenses 520.00. Net pay 680.00 or 170 a man. Sounds better at 300 a man. Band expenses can be a bitch. Is that a fair assumption or am I off. It is a business for sure.
