What Does It Cost

What Does It Cost?

The services offered by The Happiness Bands are very reasonably priced. In a personal consultation your needs will be discussed and the scope of your event and the cost will be determined. Depending on the size of the band, the distance the band will need to travel, the size of the venue and how long we're needed to play, the cost can range from $200 to $5,000 per event.

If your event requires several different bands to perform throughout the event, this is no problem for us and we will arrange with you a package that suits your budget.

And you can't beat our guarantee. If you hire any of the Happiness Bands and are not completely satisfied with our performance, we will refuse payment. We are that proud of our professionalism!
