NYE is THE big night for musicians...paywise anyway. Wherever you play, the venue is charging top dollar for cover, drinks, parking etc. You should as well. Triple or even four x your "going rate".


I look forward to NYE...or at least my checking acc't does. I make good $ each night I play (and I realize it is probably as lot more than many do...) but NYE the pay is always sickenly good.

My best paying gig thus far was New Years Eve 1999. We got four times our normal rate. That opportunity was taken advantage of very nicely, thank you. Normally, we take no less than twice our normal rate for New Years Eve.
My whole trick is to keep the tune well out in front. If I play Tchaikovsky, I play his melodies and skip his spiritual struggle. ~Liberace
