All the musicians get paid the same amount per gig. So whether you are hiring a duo, trio, quartet or solo pianist, the fees depend on various factors mentioned below. But as a rough guide, the rates are between £150 and £300 per musician for a one-off gig and between £70 and £120 for a residency.
- Number of 'sets' performed (a set is 45 minutes with 15 minute break)
- Distance from London / travel expenses and time spent travelling (accommodation may sometimes be required)
- The time of day/week/year - we can be cheaper on Mondays - Thursdays than at weekends. Peak times eg. New Years Eve command much higher fees.
Deposits: for one-off gigs a deposit of 50% is usually required one month before the event, retainable if the event is cancelled.
: the more often you hire us, the cheaper we can be. See the restaurants and bars
page for more information.
Full payment is expected in cash or bank transfer on the day of the event.
