How much does a band cost?
There are many factors that determine the price of a band. Fees can vary enormously. The reason for this can be based on all or some of the following factors:
- The size of the band; generally speaking, the more people in the band, the higher the fee.
- The demand for the band. If an act is in high demand and has been performing for many years, the quality of a more polished performance would be reflected in the fee.
- The location of the band. If the band is based either far away from the venue, or even has to travel from a performance the night before, this can impact on the fee as the cost of mileage and accommodation need to be given consideration.
- The “undefineable variable”. Occasionally, bands will quote on the basis of the kind of event, or what they feel they can get for that performance. This is NOT acceptable in our opinion, but rest assured that this is never an issue for us, as we know what the bands would normally charge and will not put forward to our clients any act who does this.
When you find an act on the website that you are interested in, we will happily give you a quote after which we will negotiate with them on your behalf to ensure that you get the best price.
Are they all professional bands?
All the bands we represent are professional acts, and have been performing at high profile events, corporate functions, weddings and parties for many years. In order to be represented by The Morris Agency, they have to reach and maintain an excellent standard.
We are very strict on our submission procedure, and are confident that all of our acts understand the on AND offstage rules. This means that as well as conducting themselves well musically on stage, they are also approachable, polite and professional, even when not performing.
