Pricing - How much does a concert cost?
This will always vary according to how much travel is involved, the number of performances/workshops desired, etc.
As a general rule, prices are in the $1250-1550 range + travel expenses. An exact price quote will be given right away through email (“dave” at “daveruch.com”) or over the phone once you’ve indicated the number of programs/workshops/concerts you’re interested in, the exact location of the performances, and the range of dates you’re considering. There may be discounts available if your dates are flexible.
When is Dave available?
Dave performs full-time, and is available just about any day of the year that’s not already reserved. Because he is also a Dad with his own children at home, he generally does not schedule long “tours” or come to communities for a large block of days, but rather, he is available all throughout the year to travel to your locale for a day or two (or five, in special circumstances).
How much advance notice is needed in setting up a booking?
Bookings have been arranged as quickly as one day ahead of time, and as far out as two years or more. There is no set rule here.
What will we need to provide?
Dave travels with a full state-of-the-art sound system for smaller venues lacking in-house sound (up to 250 people).
For larger venues and those with in-house sound, a simple stage plot and tech rider will be provided (just two microphones are needed, and monitors are often unnecessary).
Other items needed: one armless chair, two small tables/desks, access to an electrical outlet, and lighting (if available). A flat 4-wheeled cart (“flatbed”) for hauling equipment to the performance site is always helpful if there is no direct access from an outside door.
Just ask! Dave can be reached directly by email (“dave” at “daveruch.com”) or phone (716-884-6855)
