How much do Dorset Soul Bands cost?
Soul Bands in Dorset cost from £320 to £7989. The average price in 2021 was £1979. Prices vary depending on experience, demand, size of act, travel costs and the specs of the equipment provided. Artists travelling into Dorset from further away will usually charge more than a local act due to travel time and fuel costs.
