How far will you travel?

Will you give me a discount?
Short answer, that's not how it works. When you hire a musician, you are not paying them to turn up and play, you are paying for all of the work that has gone into making this musician good. As well as the equitment/instrument.
However, If your event is during the week or in off peak times, then I will have quoted you a discounted rate due to the lack of demand in that particular time. (Jan-Feb, Monday-Thursday)
Here is a fun blogpost about it!
