## How many songs do you need for a first gig?

If you’ve got a 30-45 minute set then I’d say about 7-10 songs, depending on how long your songs are, and how much stage banter you do. If you arrange a gig, the venue or promoter should tell you how long your set will be, and if they don’t, there’s no harm in asking.

## How many songs are played at a concert?

Headliners show durations vary as well but it is at least an hour and up to 2 hours but most seem to be around 90 minutes. You could reasonably expect the band to do between 15–25 songs depending on how long they are required to play. If the concert was an hour closer to 15 and 2 hours closer to 25.

## How much should I pay a band?

How do we charge for it? As a rule of thumb, we like to get a minumum of $100 per band member. For 6 hours of labor, that puts you a little over $16/hour per person. That is better than minumum wage in California; however, the expenses of running a band don’t come cheap.
