£100 per gig (plus expenses  – 1/9th or 1/10th of fee for gigs over £1000?)

Pete Morritt PA (Dave’s friend)
+44 7815 989591 – I think he charged £150?

Nathan Rainer (Nick B’s friend) – 07792 010239 – big rig – goes out for GBP 150 plus mileage

Gilroy – 07927 452 271 – (also a musician)- I think he charges more than the others for PA, but may be good as an alternative for weddings.
