What is the going rate for a live sound engineer? I know, broad question. Here is some info to help narrow down the scope. - Cover Band situation - We provide 100% of the gear (they just have to show up and work) - Figure 4-5 hours of work (set-up + engineering the show) - Small - Medium sized bars... PA will run about 10-14 channels (all instruments+drums+vox). Thanks guys. Just looking to get some ranges so I know what to expect. My band might start hiring an engineer to set-up / run our shows, and I want to figure out how reasonable/expensive the cost could be.
