At the BIDA dance in cambridge ma, our payment structure is:
Each band member and the caller is guaranteed $75 plus $25 if they
traveled a long way. After that we pay expenses (rent, insurance,
...) and the sound person ($75, which includes them brinign their
own equipment. Any remaining money is split up so each of the
performers and bida get equal shares.
