There is low probability to book Lee Elder for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Lee Elder agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Lee Elder, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Lee Elder booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Lee Elder, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
