BMI appears to have a minimum fee right at $375.00.

A venue I played got dinged by one of the performing rights "collectors" for $400.00 after my band played in their parking lot. Not disrespecting the performing rights people, I just don't know which one it was. That said, that restaurant stopped hiring bands. They said they had to pay a license fee for canned music as well.

One place that hosted music said they would not allow an SESAC music to be performed. They didn't offer an explanation as to why, but said ASACP and BMI where OK.
