HOW TO INVITE A COVER FOR A GROUP AND SAVE WHEN ORGANIZING A HOLIDAY
1. ORGANIZATION OF EVENTS WITHOUT INTERMEDIARIES
You probably understand without us that intermediaries always mean paying for their services. But nevertheless there are tricks in everything.
The tip is simple: always try to contact contractors directly. If you can’t get contacts from service providers, find out their names or appellations. Now the Internet is highly developed and finding the ones you need is not difficult.
Any cover group, at times, can be sold 1.5-2 times cheaper only because of the lack of reseller services. This also applies to other contractors such as: device distributors, presenters, artists, etc.
2. DAY OF THE WEEK
The most expensive day from the point of view of the work of contractors is Saturday. And accordingly the prices for their work go up by 30-50% Naturally, if you want to save, you need to choose another day, for example Friday. There is an extra charge of about 20-40%
The next day will be Sunday with prices about 15-20% higher than everyday.
Well and closes the list of working days of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. These days there are a lot of free contractors and prices are sometimes lower than market prices.
During the work of our musical group, about half of all concerts took place outside the city.
And this is no coincidence, cost savings in suburban rest homes, boarding houses, hotels, restaurants and other similar establishments sometimes reach 2–3 times. That is, with the cost of renting a restaurant in Moscow at 200 tr. in the Moscow region, renting an institution for similar parameters will cost 100 – 150 tr
Agree, a pleasant saving, despite the small distance from the city. Moreover, in most cases, you get a holiday directly in nature, and sometimes with additional bonuses in the form of a reservoir, forest park, various playgrounds and complexes, etc. The list goes on and on, with a myriad of offers.
4. INVITATION OF REGIONAL CONTRACTORS
As practice shows, everyone likes to save. But they often forget that Moscow is not the only place where they rent equipment, performances by artists or organize events and overpay a lot of money for territorial accessibility than they could save, for example, by paying for travel to workers from the regions.
It’s not difficult to find them, just go through the search engines, indicating the desired region. It is also possible to view the nearest neighboring countries of Belarus or Ukraine. Their prices are much lower than in Moscow, and the quality of work is not inferior to the capital.
Those who do not leave for Moscow work in the regions. And in Moscow, for the most part, those who come from the regions work. Accordingly, you pay extra money only for the Moscow phone number and the availability of a personal meeting. But the choice of contractors is of course yours!
5. SEARCH FOR PERFORMERS BY BASIS OF ARTISTS AND SCENE WORKERS
As a rule, the algorithm for finding musicians for weddings, hosts, equipment distributors, etc. It comes down to entering a query in a search engine and selecting the proposed options no further than the 3rd page of search results.
What do you get in the end? Those who correctly advertise themselves, and the rest? We answer: the rest are in various free catalogs, databases of artists and cultural events workers.
Try to use them, you will surely find what you need and at the same time the price range will be significant, there will be plenty to choose from. OrangeVinil also has pages in such directories.
Of course, this is approximate information, as some contractors do not make discounts, and some do more significant. But still in 90% of cases, this information will help you save up to 50% of the budget.
6. EVENT ON THE DAY OF THE CONCERT OF THE COVER OF THE GROUP AT THE CLUB CONCERT
The secret to this action is simple. You select the date of the event, then start looking for clubs with live music in which music groups perform. There are sure to be a couple of interesting and enjoyable establishments. Call there, agree to rent a separate hall for your celebration, so that in the next room there will certainly be a concert program and a live group will join. Next, book the whole thing.
When the date of the event comes, you calmly come at the appointed time, celebrate the holiday. Before starting the program, go to the musicians, give them 5-7 tr. and order 40 minutes of those songs that you want to hear, preferably of course their repertoire. Since the group will definitely receive money for their performance in the club, the children will be very pleased with your proposal and will not refuse. You will not be disappointed, but at the same time save 30-40t.r. at the invitation of musicians on their holiday.
In our practice, there have been such cases and they work! Moreover, there was a time when our fans called one institution and asked the art director to invite our team for a specific date. And indeed we were invited, the concert was very successful and memorable!
