    I would probably go with $50 each (wasn’t sure if your poll was per person or for all 4).

    I am in a non-professional flute choir and we have been hired to do weddings and other fancy events.  Non-professional = isn’t our full-time jobs.

    Our rate for a quartet is $175 the first hour and $150 for every hour after that.  We’re in Utah so things are a bit cheaper here I think.

     

    Your $50/pp for 1 hour sounds good.

    I would offer to pay them at least market rate, whatever that is in your area, and hopefully they refuse the money.
