What's the pricing for groupmuses?
- Hosting a groupmuse is totally free.
- Attendees pay $5 per person for their reservation (paid online at the time of reservation).
- At the event, everyone is expected to contribute money to the musicians, with either cash or online at groupmuse.com/pay. The minimum is $20, but we never turn anyone away for lack of funds.
$20 is not the suggested contribution, it's the suggested minimum.
For some attendees, $20 is what they can afford for an evening's entertainment. For others, an up-close concert with professional musicians is worth $100. We want everyone to be able to attend groupmuses, so we don't set high ticket prices. We expect everyone to pay what they can afford, and what they think the musicians deserve. Please be generous to the musicians, and encourage others to do the same! Of course, please don't turn anyone away for lack of funds. We want to keep Groupmuse accessible to all!
The $5 reservation fee keeps Groupmuse running.
Please encourage your friends to reserve their spot on groupmuse.com. It makes your life easier as a host, and their $5 reservation fee keeps Groupmuse going. If some of your friends refuse to reserve online, you can still reserve a spot on their behalf:
Go to the Manage Event page, and look for the link to reserve spots for others. Provide their contact info so we can email them Groupmuse's overview of audience expectations, and you can pay for their $5 reservation fee.
Anyone can become a Supermuser to get unlimited reservations
If you want to attend more than 1 groupmuse each month, please join as a Supermuser for a monthly subscription! Membership starts at **$9 per month**. We appreciate you supporting Groupmuse with your monthly subscription. Please note that Supermusers still pay the musicians directly at each event!
Why are some events ticketed?
Occasionally, the Groupmuse team will put together a special event, or we'll work with a partner to offer discounts to their events. These events may be ticketed, but don't be confused: 99% of our events are held in living rooms hosted by community members, and none of those events are ticketed. These events organized by hosts follow the pricing scheme above.
