The Proverbs exist to fulfill the "great commission" proving the power of Philippians 4:19 daily, as it continues to operate when doing church appearances, primarily on a "love-offering" basis. (paid admission or fund-raiser events may have a different fee schedule - see below)
For church or other charitable organization bookings, expenses of approximately $350. per day PLUS an honorarium (or love-offering) are appreciated for locations within 200km (round trip) of Westport, ON. For this same type of booking at distances in excess of 200km round trip, please add Proverbs bus fuel costs of 75¢/km (round trip) plus meals and hotel accomodations for 4 where applicable.
While the Proverbs truly enjoy the opportunity to do charitable work, due to the sheer number of fundraisers (for others) that they are asked to do, they must be selective of which organizations they wish to support, as well as the number of such events that they can actually afford to do - since the Proverbs Gospel Music Association is itself a registered Canadian charity with similar needs. Generally the group will reduce their fees by approximately 50% but must ensure that in addition, that they cover all fuel costs (@75¢/km round trip) PLUS any other out-of-pocket expenses. Please contact us directly to discuss this. E-MAIL
In situations where consideration of the Proverbs real expenses is impossible, the assistance of the hosting organization with additional area Proverbs concerts can sometimes reduce individual sponsor's financial requirements by spreading travel costs over several bookings. The Proverbs will do their best to work with you!
PAID ADMISSION CONCERTS:
For paid admission events the Proverbs are happy to negotiate appropriate fees... These can vary depending on ticket prices, travel distances or fees of other comparable artists on the programme. Please contact us directly to discuss fees. E-MAIL
Motel accommodations (2 rooms @ double occupancy) in a reputable hotel chain (Best Western, Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn etc.) are appreciated for bookings where distance precipitates over night lodging. The Proverbs also travel in a 40ft Prevost Coach that would require adequate (secure) parking facilities and space to turn around etc.
Please feel free to discuss your situation ... the Proverbs try to be flexible regarding honorariums and to be considerate of individual circumstances and will work with you to ensure a successful event within budget.
