Interested in hiring performing BUMS?

BUMS is a not for profit community group. We have four community bands who love to perform. We understand the financial constraints of charitable organizations and we are happy to negotiate a reduced rate to perform at and support your event, however if you are looking for a paid event here are some guidelines:

1. The minimum set length is 30 minutes, with subsequent sets to be negotiated with the performer(s). This applies to both paid and charitable events.

2. There will be a minimum fee of $150 applicable. Negotiation of fees will be between the performer and the customer based on location, event length and other things.

There are many talented BUMS individuals or groups available to perform for very reasonable rates. We can put you in touch with affiliated performers and bands (soloists, duos, trios or any combination up to an even dozen) for all sorts of occasions – comedy festivals, Australia Day celebrations, community events, parties, birthdays, weddings and funerals!

When you inquire about a performing group, please let us to know:

  • What type of event is it? (themed event, corporate event, private event such as a birthday party or wedding, public event such as a fundraising concert or open-air performance)
  • Where and when you’d like us to play? (time, date and venue)
  • What style of music would your audience like to hear?
  • How long you’d like us to play? (approximate set length)
  • What is your budget?
  • What are the technical and parking arrangements? (stage size, AV equipment provided, loading zone location)
