Granted it may be $20 but when you're on tour you should be able to cop lunch for $10 and eat whatever is on your rider. I don't think anyone can convince me that a band that is going to have a couple thousand dollar guarantee plus positive merch sales really needs $10,000 to go on tour for 14 days.
That costs $5,000 according to them, which they would get back pretty quickly.
Are you this certain about their guarantee? I don't know either way, but you seem really positive about being able to ballpark their take.
And not really on the van/trailer. Two people can travel in a car/small SUV with a half trailer. Especially if one of them isn't a drummer. I'm not saying that's what The Narrative are doing, but I've known other small bands to do it.
