I've researched the boards and blogs and still have a few questions about wedding gigs. I've always been one of the hired quartet guns, but never the interface between musicians and bride. I was contacted by a bride whose friend referred me (I played at the friend's wedding).
I have presented her with a repertoire list and price for the agreed-upon service. I'm not charging her for driving 1.5 hours rt.
Now she says she wants to hear me play in person (I don't have a classical demo cd but she has heard me on folk/pop on myspace). And she wants me to come to the rehearsal. On top of that she is requesting special music that I will either need to purchase or transcribe.
So - how would you deal with the request to go to her apt and play? And, the rehearsal (extra 1.5 hrs of travel).
Thanks for your advice (even if it includes running away!!).
