My fee depends on many factors: the length of the event, its location, time of the year (is it a holiday season, like December, or a less busy time?), etc.
Here are a few guidelines (to find out an exact amount, give me a call at 907-854-0273):
An hour rate for a solo performance: $125-150/hour, with a minimum of 2 hours
The whole evening solo performance, regardless of the hours (and I played once as long as 6 hours in a row at a New Year Eve party): $700
Bringing a digital piano: $75. This is a nice looking instrument -- just like the real acoustic upright -- but a heavy one, that requires disassembling at home, assembling at the venue, and then disassembling and assembling again... hence the extra charge.
Partner(s) rates: about the same as mine, depending on who my partner is
Location: if it is outside Anchorage or Eagle River, there will be an extra fee... let's discuss it by phone
Special requests are free -- unless it is a piece that I have to practice for weeks on end....
To give you a few concrete examples: my solo playing at a typical wedding (without a reception, but with a meeting prior to wedding, to talk about the details) will cost you $250-300; a wedding with a long reception - $500-600; a business reception - $250-300; a memorial- $250-300; a private party at home with my digital piano - $300 and up; a Christmas party - $300-500; and so on: you do the math...
Your date will be reserved with 50% deposit.
I make discounts sometimes: mostly for elderly people, war veterans, and non-profit organizations. So again: give me a call, and we'll discuss it.
And one little gift at the end: if my fee exceeds $400, you get a free CD "Freylakhs for Two"!
