oh..and after looking over the other posts.............

the functions that I do are mostly large weddings and corporate....however if they provide alcohol (and the receptions usually do, because the meal is the same as the guests....)I ask them to take it away...as none of us drink on the job.

Any good professional will not demand alcohol as we are there to work...as are the venue managers, the waiters etc..

I have only ever worked at one venue as the "house band" and i know that they include the cost of the bands meal in with the package...so yes...you are still paying for them.

We paid for our band and videographer (and her assistant) to eat a basic meal and soft drink (or water) for $30ea). Whilst I agree they have to be fed there was no way I was paying $150each or for them to eat with our guests....they had a room in the back.

Hey Girls!

I am having a DJ and a photographer and Videographer at my wedding and am sitting them with my guests as I have run out of room of where to put them. I am also providing them with a main meal and a bottle of scotch to share on the table.
