________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Q. Arrival & Setup
When does the band arrive and setup - Do we pay for this ?  NO

Bands arrive and are set up ready approximately 1hr prior to commencement of music.

Example if the music starts at 7pm - the band usually would arrive early and be ready by 6.30pm.
You do not pay for this set up time.
You only pay for the band from the first song to the last song of the night.

 

Extra Early Setup

If you require the band to be set up extra early this can incur extra costs.

The extra time is called down time and is calculated at 50% of performance time

Example if you wanted the band to set up 3 hours prior to commencement
1 hour for set up and 2 hours waiting around to start

They may charge you down time

If your paying $400 per musician for 4hrs = $100 per hour per musician

Down time is then $50 per hour per musician

Breaks
What breaks do bands take - Do they play recorded music during the breaks ?

 

Mostly all amplified music groups play music through their sound system while on breaks.


Instrumental groups eg. String Quartets, Harpists etc. do not play music during the breaks.

 

The average break period in a 4hr performance is
 4 x 45 minute sets on stage with 3 x 20 minute breaks
 

In a 5hr performance is
 5 x 44 minute sets on stage with 4 x 20 minute breaks

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Requesting Songs
Will the band play special requested songs ?

Yes - If they have the songs in their repertoire

Some high quality professional bands are willing to rehearse a special song for you at no additional cost.

Please note that they will require ample notice. at least 30 days to prepare this for you.

If you require more than one song additional costs may occur.

 

Note you can supply your own music to be played through the Sound System during the bands Breaks

GST  - Goods & Services Tax
What is GST & do all bands charge it ?
 

Goods & Services Tax is a government tax imposed in Australia, calculated at 10%.

 

Eg. If a Band costs $1500 the GST would be $150 making a total of $1650 to be paid.
 

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

Speeches & Announcements
Can I use the microphone for speeches & announcements

Yes - Bands, Musicians, DJs etc. are willing to allow you to use a microphone during the performance time.

As the microphones are attached by leads to the bands sound system
you would need to stand on or close to the stage for this purpose.
 

If you require a roving microphone, this would need to be hired - We can arrange this specially at a small additional cost.

It is wise to check with your functions/venue manager as most venues have roving radio microphones and PA's
available as part of the venue's facilities.
