How much do Dorset Function Bands cost?
Function Bands in Dorset cost from £256 to £12,823. The average price in 2023 was £1,921. 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.
