The Old Hyde
My band was asked to fill in for a gig this Saturday night for a band that dropped out. They only asked us yesterday. The offer was 150 (split 3 ways) for the night. Its a local Elks club and they really don't pay a lot but we want the gig. The bass player and I agreed but my guitar player has an early morning flight and had another band practice scheduled for the same night so he kind of didn't want the gig, but said he would do 8:30 to 11:00 and needed 225 instead. He thinks we shouldn't do less than 100 per hour for a gig because of the travel, load in and out etc...well, they agreed to his terms and we are getting more money. I guess im wondering if anyone else has tried for more money or just accepted what the first ( and maybe only) offer is.
