Thanks for all of the great advice - Keep it coming.

The only reason I used "2 45 minute sets" is that it seemed to be a standard point of reference for parties, etc.

It seems that we are in the right ball park for private parties. Last weekend we got $150 a person for 2 hours in the afternoon (The Marriot family in Potomac Maryland. It was a BIG house). However, I know we have lost at least 2 gigs when we quoted that rate. I think we scared them off. What we figured out is how to keep the door open for negotiation. :-)

The only bar we have played regularly was on Sunday Afternoons. We got some food and what was put in the tip jar. It ended up costing us money after we tipped the waitress and the bar wouldn't give us an evening slot. So we quit playing there.
