For house concerts, neighborhood block parties, and non-profit organizations, Steve McAllister’s performance rates are largely based on a pay-what-you-want scenario. While he has provided service for less and more, Steve recommends an hourly wage of 49$ per hour through August 4, 2021, when it will be raised to 50$ per hour in honor of his 50th birthday. Obviously, for Steve, the money isn’t the most important thing, but how we use it and the time we spend.
For any performance including additional members of the Wandering Soul Band or technicians, they will also be paid a minimum hourly wage based on their age with a two hour minumum for each performance.
Performance hosts are also asked to consider the hours that artists spend rehearsing and refining their craft.
For ticketed events, Steve requests the opportunity for an ABC Squared Economics experiment. This means that a portion of each ticket sold goes to the Artists involved, the Business that produces the event, the most local level of Citizenry (community association, city, county, etc.), and a charitable organization or other Community endeavor.

Additional Requirements and Considerations
Due to poor sight and other economic and environmental factors, Steve McAllister does not drive. Additional transportation costs may be applied.
In addition to music, you may be interested in customizing your Steve McAllister experience with a performance of one of his shows The Cowboy Cabaret, Will Rogers Revived, or Seamus O’Day and the Irish Way. Ask for details.
