    The manager for my band said that they do not drink during their performance, but they might have a couple of drinks at the end of the night. I said that was perfectly fine. I appreciate that they are going to stay sober for their performance and then have a celebratory night cap at the end. They have to pack up all their equipment and everything…I figure that will go faster with a beer or two. 🙂

    I would let them have a couple of drinks, if they are so inclined.

    I guess it can go either way. IMO, If I’m paying you to be there, it’s not my responsibility to pay for your drinks….but if there wasn’t a significant price difference, I wouldn’t make a big deal about it.

    I would say let them have drinks if they want it. I would assume that any professional band isn’t going to get drunk, but if you’ve ever been to a band performance (like in a small setting or venue) it’s actually really common to see the bands and singer/songwriters with a drink. They aren’t getting drunk though.

    We are letting our band drink the night of. I want everyone to have a great time, vendors included and I trust all of our vendors to act responsibly and not get sh*t faced.

    As a professional musician, I voted to let them have drinks. If you trust them enough to hire them, trust them to drink responsibly. They’ll appreciate this “gift” you give them.
