, but not any better or any more professionally and of that I have little if any doubt.
SINCE YOU OPENED YOUR TRAP AGAIN ASSUMING THINGS, LET ME SAY THIS. I would have asked specific questions before talking about any money. First I would ask the person to give me their name. Next the type of event and date of the event. Location of the event and how many hours do you need us to perform the event? What music do you want played at the event and then decide if I want to agree to do the event before even giving a price quote. Those are basic standard questions I would ask to feel for things. Oh I did forget another question. Who is the event for. When it's a wedding I would like to know the age of the couple getting married. That way I get an idea of which way to go handling the wedding.

I did forget 2 more questions. I do like to know how did they get my info to know how to contact me and how many people do you expect to attend the event?

As much as people frustrate me,
I joined this forum to get help when I need it...
and give help when I can.

Some people don't accept (or appreciate) help as well as others.

So I would want to make sure a venue is doing things properly and just helter skelter just to make some money.
Why not? Your just having an ego feed last min. gig!

Just want to make sure everything on our end is covered.
You don't even charge a living wage and you want things to be covered?

Police don't just show up at a wedding!

You just keep trying to BS us and we keep laughing.

I haven't charged $400 for a gig since I was in high school and 16 years old. That was THIRTY SIX YEARS AGO! You are a grown man... charge enough to make a living and support yourself.

Guys, there is no reason to be derogatory or disrespectful toward each other - sarcastically or not. We're supposed to be professionals - act like it, especially in a public area of the forum. I have no problem with you all picking on each other - I do have a problem when it becomes derogatory and disrespectful. Clean it up or further action will be taken.

We completely understand that you know that the terms you are using are derogatory, insulting, disrespectful, rude and ignorant. If you can't play nice, you'll have to find another sandbox to play in.

Sorry ladies, I'll refrain from presuming y'all are mature enough to deal with obvious foolishness.

Pathetic.

I enjoy your "obvious foolishness".
I love your sarcasm.
I admire your wit.
But, you don't know anything about my ethnic background.

In this case...I just didn't appreciate your choice of words.

To begin with I didn't get the call and accept doing the event. Honestly the way I'm feeling now since it's been months since we've done any events the price is ok. To get to the venue is less than 1,000 feet and its for 3 hours. Just time to at least get back to doing at least one event in this tough time right now.

Please don't get upset with me asking this question. What would your price quote have been to do this wedding?

I just found out the time is 6-11pm and it's for a brother of a wedding we did a while ago. Just finalizing the details.

So I assume you've upped your $400 quote to $650 since the time increased 66% from 3 to 5 hours?
