That all depends on alot of factors. How good the band is, the venues they play, what type of music they play, how many CD's are sold, ticket sales how much is profit and much is gross, how the band spends the grossed money, and how the profits are split up, not to mention how many band members it would have to be split up by. and that's just naming a few variables.

That depends on the venue they are playing and how many people buy tickets, as well as what their contract says (if they have one).

The band managers discuss the payments and of course hotels are free for the bands to stay in. Some bands stay with other bands in hotels. Some bands ride with other bands to save gas.
