I was called today about performing at the Homestead Family Evenings about 30 min from my house. I would be working from 5-9 and there would be a lot of people. I would be, more or less, the house magician.

My question is what should I charge? Should I charge $250.00 for the evening? I normally charge $125.00/hour so it would be half-off. Is that fair for the summer?

Thanks for all the help!

Casey, it really depends on the situation. Discuss things with your employer, how many guests there usually are, what he wants you to do, etc.

I try to make about $3.00 per guest and a minimum of $100.00 for a 20 minute show.

Around here the goin' rate is about $125.00 per hour with a two hour minimum. So $250.00 is OK if you want to invest a couple of extra hours to firm up the gig. But they need to know that they're gettin' a great deal at that rate. Are tips involved? You might do pretty well if the tips are good and the waitresses pretty.
