Re: [Harp-L] Wedding gig

I also require a 50% deposit to book a gig including receptions. It just makes everyone committed. I also have them look at our song list to see what they want to hear and if there is a special sond we can learn it prior to the event. I also want them to come and hear us live, no CD's sent out as we are a party band and if they hear us live they will book us. It works for us. The seceret is "Give them what they want"!

I have success when everything is agreed before, including 50% deposit paid. That way, everyone has a basic understanding to begin with.
Before playing at the wedding, a quick chat w/whomever (bride's father, groom, whoever is to pay the remaining $) to reaffirm everyone's understanding goes a long way towards heading off sadness.
