Depends on the group as well. With the jazz quintet we usually book $50/man the first hour and $25 for every hour after that. This helps cover some travel, load-in, and setup time. With the funk band (usually 11 piece) I've done tons of 4 hour bar gigs for $50/man but we almost treat these like paid rehearsals for weddings and other better paying events.

Well, so far, at least here in the Denver area we've seem to have both fewer clubs booking as well as fewer bands playing. Getting bands back together after over a year off is no easy task and rehearsal space is also an issue. My concern right now is that we have 6-7 summer gigs booked and our drummer refuses to get vaccinated. If it turns out that clubs and venues won't allow people in without proof of vaccination we're going to have issues.
