    From Richard Webb@1:116/901 to all on Saturday, March 19, 2011 22:36:20
    Hello all!

    FOund this on the pro-audio email list, thought you'd enjoy

    A lady called the Los Angeles musicians union to inquire about the cost of booking a five piece band with a singer for a wedding... The AFM rep says "Off the top of my head, roughly two thousand dollars"...
    She says "WHAT ? FOR MUSIC ?"...
    The rep responds "Ma'am... I'll tell you what. Call the plumbers' union and ask for six plumbers to work from six to twelve o'clock on a Saturday night. Whatever they charge you, I'll work for half of that." She called back and said
    "I get your point".
