Just curious to know if any of you have a "moving charge"....money charged to the client for "relocating" you after the first set.  If you do charge, is it in your contract, or do you just spring it on them?

I have a "moving charge" clearly stated in the contract and am sooooo happy that I do.

It's "made" me money a few times and saved me extra moving at others.

i guess i did use it once also..paid off nicely

I have had to do it once and they offered to pay when they asked, so that was good. Nothing in the contract.

I charge a moving fee ( cartage) depending on how far the move is.  For example, Some customers rent beach houses and have their ceremonies on the beach and a cocktail hour at the house. That is a an easy move so I do not charge for that. However, If i had to leave the beach and go to a whole new venue as  part of the same wedding then I charge accordingly. I ask these question beforehand and include it in my overall fee.

Brad, I charge $25/man/move. It's mainly meant to discourage moving. I try to determine if moving is necessary when negotiating the contract. If they spring the moving requirement on me then I spring the price on them.

Advanced pan technique

So there are lots of books and videos on how to play pan - all the ones I've seen are for beginners. Anybody know of Advanced technique books? I see LiamTteague does a beginner book- I would love for him to do one for more advanced players.
