    I used to book bands. Folks might be surprised at how little you would really have to fork over to get a decent celeb for a private party.

    Especially if you are talking about a 2nd tier guy or an older dude, who hasn't done much in awhile.

    Say, someone like Susan Vega. I know that she plays a local coffee house around here...I can't imagine she gets more than $2000 - $5000 for a show.

    If you grab a gang of a few guys, called up William Morris or one of the other big agencies...you might be surprised who you could book for a private party...

    Most the musicians I know are more studio players, people who have toured with folks like Roger Daltry, that kind of thing...those folks you can sometimes get for even $1000... I used to book a band of guys like that...and their take for the night was under $500.

    So, anyway, if you want to give a friend a killer birthday....(don't contact me about bands...I don't do that anymore....just saying...it's a cool idea to have some fun).

    The day I have friends I can afford to spend $1000 on is the day I give half my income to charity cos I've clearly got waaaay more than I need.

    I'd like to book dire straits for my birthday please? If they are not available you mention roger daltry...? but I would need townsend and a session rhythm section too, to complete the whole 'WHO' thing.

    If neither of these options are a runner, then anyone hot with a half decent voice who doesn't mind getting thier kit off would be good.

    cheers dude
