Welcome to SalsaBoston's entertainment referral service.
Over the years we have developed ties with many Latin dance
entertainers in the Boston area, and we will be happy to
refer them to you for your event. The entertainers
we refer to you are all reliable professionals whom we have
worked with ourselves. While it is impossible to guarantee
your satisfaction, we can assure you that you will be talking
to the best people we know of in the Boston area.
Most of the entertainers will include in their price a
modest referral fee, which helps cover the cost of providing
this service. However, we believe that the savings
to you in time, effort, and risk over finding entertainment
on your own will be more than worth it.
Cost of entertainment varies, but below are some guidelines
to help you plan your budget. The primary consideration
is how many people and how much of their time in total is
consumed (including preparation and travel).
- Bands: Typically $1500-$2500 to start for
a decent band in the Boston area. Travel and number
of sets, size of band, in-house equipment availability
etc. will affect the price. Keep in mind a Latin
band has typically 8-15 musicians so $1500 might get them
only $50-100 each for a fair bit of work.
- DJ's: $200-$500. Travel, equipment
requirements, length of gig, advance coordination, etc.
- Dance Performances: $150-$500. Depending
on size of group, number of performers, and number of
- Dance Lessons: $100-$150/hr typically will do
it. If a large group, then the instructor may charge
by the person.
