    :)..I think money doesn't matter if you are good at your work. I think we should tell them.."Pay me after the programme. If you like us, pay us 3000 which is our rate. And if not, pay us what u want."..I think they would agrre to pay 3000 after listening to this dialouge.:p:

    Dude set a base rate for all your gigs.....say 1000/hr upto 3 can always update this rate as you play better and better u can have diff rates for english/hindi/marathi. The rates however should be discussed with ur bandmates!!!!!
