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.
