What The Band will provide?
3 x 40 – 50 Minutes of music* i.e. an industry standard 3 hour booking.
Professional equipment – including:
Lighting (if the band sees it as desirable)
A professional performance
Payment is required by bank deposit prior the performance or in cash at the time of the performance. A receipt for the amount paid including an ABN will be provided upon upon request.
Extended performance fee *
There are occasions where the band is asked to extend the performance beyond three hours. This is usually an acceptable practice depending on the circumstances. If you choose to do this, it will be for a maximum of 45 minutes (12 - 14 songs) and will attract a 25% additional fee.
Early set up
Usual set up times and sound checks start approximately one hour prior to the scheduled performance . One hour will also be needed to be allowed for by the venue for the band to pack up.
Band members and crew will require access that is as close as possible to the performance area to unload and move equipment. This will also assist to reduce set up time.
Where possible, the band should be provided with an area in which to change in private and store instrument cases/ equipment during the performance. It's understand that this is not always possible, however we would ask that you do your best to at least make sure that there’s somewhere to securely store instrument cases etc.
It is the responsibility of the client to provide appropriate supervision of their guests. The client agrees to ensure that no unauthorised person handles any of the equipment of the band. Any damage caused by any unsupervised guest will be the responsibility of the client. This applies even if the client is not present. No person other than the band or their crew are permitted on the stage / performance area at any time whilst any equipment is set up.
If power leads need to be run to power outlets within a walking traffic area, the client must ensure that those leads are covered with a rug, mat, or something similar, to ensure public safety.
