Our bands range from roughly $6000-$12,000 per event, depending on the group, location, and date.
People commonly compare one band to another based solely on cost. But it’s important to keep in mind not all bands or companies are created equal. We recommend you ask as many questions as you can about a group or company’s tenure, approach, style, ethics, and policies.
Several primary factors determine band cost:
Band size. Larger groups (9-11 pieces) tend to be more costly than smaller groups (6-7 pieces).
Tenure. Recently formed bands are often priced more aggressively than bands who possess longer tenures.
Location. Cost is relative to your venue’s distance from Boston, MA. Sites exceeding 2 hours from Boston may require overnight accommodations.
Event Date. The calendar year is separated into prime months and off-season months, each with varying costs. And within peak months (April to October), there are Fridays and some Sundays that yield lower call volume. We reduce our costs for such dates.
Supply and Demand. This has more to do with a band’s cost than any other factor. The most requested ensembles, those who book 1-2 years in advance, will be the most costly.
