We are trying to make the budgets work as simple and as economic as possible but in this business nothing is cheap.
The following is an overview of what your looking at when we budget out your concert.
The first is the venue we need a place that will house at least 400 seats. cost $1,000.00
Nearly all of the venues will require a performance insurance policy this is 500.00
The next thing we have to have is a sound and light package 500.00
Tickets are printed at the rate of .50cents per seat needed 200.00
All of the posters usually 100 11/2 x 17" color 200.00
we have marketing services that is implemented to help fill seats 500.00
Band is made up of the needed members for a sucessful concert 750.00
The Single is costing for the needed production, the licensing, and delivery 500.00
These numbers are figured before the tickets are selling at the door. so if your not sold out you might sell tickets at the door that is our hope so your budget minimum is $4,150.00
And the you have our management fee that is attached to that of 30% remember without HCP there is no Concert. so with a levy of 30% of gross added to your bottom line we are at $ 1,245.00
Total needed to make the show go off without a hitch $ 5,395.00
this does not hold budget for T shirts, Caps, Buttons, or any other extra items this has to be sold extra and we can special order at the rate we set for such.
there is no additional budget for food or catering or any of that in this basic package it is advised to get a food sponsor for that.
This is just your Home town show it dosent even come close to your touring cost. it is astronomical to say the least. take a gander of how that breaks down.
when we build a touring package we have to immediatly look at all involved. In doing so we find ourselves looking at everyones budget out on the road.
And the premium is not cheap here is that break down.
