Your original post stated "for a 2-4 piece wedding gig." So I was answering with the estimate of a 4 piece group. While you may be wanting to pay for free, the other three paying for free is just unreasonable. I still think $1,000 is a fair fee for a gig away for four that requires travel and lodgning. Does anyone else think my estimate was insulting enough to receive an insanity plea?
