For you guys that do a lot of high profile corporate and wedding gigs with incorporated travel, how do you go about pricing these gigs?
Say, for instance, you are a 4 piece band and would consider 200-250/man a good price for a private event. When you start adding in hours of travel each way, early setup and soundcheck, overnight stays, meals, cost of hauling all of your gear, etc, it begins to get more complicated.
On the one or two overnight gigs I've done before, I included verbage in the contract that the client was responsible for providing rooms to us, and those costs were in addition to the contract fee.
Do you have a "formula" that you use for these type of things? How are you guys doing it?
