*BAND'S FEE INFORMATION: The band's fee range is $475 to $1,500. The minimum fee to hire the band, is no less than $575. There are no "hidden or extra fees" to clients, and their entire fee quotes, cover: (1) All Music Services provided, including performance time, set-up/breakdown time before & after each engagement; & travel. And the Gigmaster's agent/service fee, that the band pays to Gigmasters.
(2) The $575 minimum fee also covers playing for engagements that are in the Sacramento, California Area and Foothills area (roughly within 30-45 miles from Sacramento) Whether an engagement is one hour or three hours, their fee is the same. They do not play "by the hour" or "charge by the hour". Their fee is a flat rate & covers from one to three or four hours. Fee quotes vary, based on the the city & distance from Sacramento; logistics/details; & type of engagement. These event details are discussed & agreed upon between the band & client. The band's goal is to work with clients to provide high quality music & entertainment, at a fee that is workable for both the band & client.
In comparison to most bands that are of the same calibur & level of Melonnee's high level of long-term experience, music quality, extensive catalogue of songs, performance & professionalism, Melonnee's band fees are lower & more affordable than most bands. The band tries to work with the client's budget as much as possible, but the band also needs to get paid for their time, work & services. OF NOTE: There are many bands you can probably find for less cost, but these are often, low caliber "garage band" types of bands. As the saying goes: "You get what you pay for." Most people are normally looking for a good, high quality band & live music for their special wedding, party, occasion, event, venue, or company/corporate event. Music can "make or break" an event or occasion!
