Please observe the Local 25 Pay Scales when booking jobs. Working jobs for less than minimum scale undermines the hard work of all who have made it so that musicians are paid a fair wage for their talents and abilities. Giving away a skill that has taken years of hard work to develop just doesn't make sense. If there are extenuating circumstances regarding scale problems please consult with Local 25 officials. Any deviation from the minimum scale must be cleared first with Local 25. Contact the Local for your current copy of "Scale of Prices" before pricing your next gig! [IMPORTANT...our "Scale of Prices" is for Local #25's area ONLY! Please obtain a current copy of the "Scale of Prices" from the local in which you are booking your performances!]

Tech Talk
It takes twice the output wattage for outdoor performances as it does for an indoor one! Remember...professional sound technicians calculate live indoor performance power output requirements at one [1] watt per person. If you can't be heard adequately at this level...you're wasting power somewhere in the mix.
