I usually charge a minimum of $500 for solo-acoustic. Usually that price can vary based on length of travel, set-up time, and sound equipment. Based on the individual event, we can talk about pricing for more time, up to a 4 piece band and work with what the client needs for the event. I am available to perform at your event as solo, duo, trio, and full band.
Typically the customer will email me to start the conversation. We'll then schedule a quick call to go over specifics. From there, I will issue a contract and take a 50% deposit to hold the date. Any questions and follow up calls are welcomed once the date is confirmed. The balance is due on the day of the performance.
I got my training from the 15 plus years of working in the music industry. By just getting out there and "doing it" has given me invaluable experience.
