Your band actually plays for free. They live for the
four hours they are on stage. You are paying for the drive to your
venue, the time it takes to set up equipment and have a sound check.
The four hours they are on stage is FREE. After your four hours they
tear down, pack it up. They drive home and the unload when they
arrive home! Being on stage entertaining your guest is fun for
musicians. Keeping your guest entertained and on the dance floor
makes it the all worthwhile!
