How much does it cost to hire a band?

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

The average cost of our bands is $5,000-$10,000 per event. And a lot of people 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. While budget is important, we recommend you ask as many questions as you can about a band or company’s tenure, approach, style, ethics and policies.

What determines a band’s cost is made up of several primary factors:

Band size. Larger groups (8-10 pieces) tend to be more costly than smaller groups (4-6 pieces).

Tenure. New bands are usually priced more aggressively than bands who possess longer tenures.

Location. Our bands price themselves relative to your venue’s distance from Boston, MA. Locations approaching or exceeding 3 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/inquiry volume. Many bands tend to discount 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.
