So my daughter is getting married this fall and wants my band to play her wedding dance. Very cool as far as I'm concerned, but wondering about a couple things. 1) How do I handle the fee thing? I would be thrilled if my bandmates comped me (since her mom and I will likely be paying for it), but I certainly don't expect that, nor do I plan to ask for it. I'm thinking I will ask them how much they each want and then I will simply play for free to cut the cost by that amount, anyway. 2) During the dance, how to handle the "daddy" (and in my case, "grand-daddy") dances? Obviously I can't play and dance at the same time... and no one else in my band plays bass. Should I try and get one of my bass player friends to sit in on those songs? Or maybe we just play those songs from a CD and the band takes a break? I suppose I will have to keep my tux on for the whole gig which will not be a lot of fun either. 3) Our standard practice is to do a contract and deposit on wedding gigs... should we still be doing that in this case? Anything else I should keep in mind on this?
