I don’t actually think you have to tip them, assuming you hired your band directly and are paying their fee directly to them. Check your contract – it may state that gratuity is included. But if it explicitly states that gratuity is not included, then they are expecting a tip in addition to their fee. I’ve seen suggestions ranging from $20 to $50 per band member. Also, if they’ll be playing for several hours during your reception, you should feed them. See if your venue offers a vendor meal that’s less expensive than what you’re feeding your guests.
