A couple of months ago a man from a retired men's group called The Sirs, 
heard The Boondockers, (our jazz and comedy band).  They wanted to hire us 
for a Christmas luncheon.  I gave them a price of $100 per man, 7 pieces. 
Since this was an afternoon short gig, I felt that it was fair.

I spoke with him later.  He said that it was too expensive for his group. 
They got a 16 piece big band for less money.
