How much do you tip a large band?

Okay, sorry to start a tipping post...

We hired a latin band, Orquesta Los Soneros, and wondered what you usually tip a band. We've never tipped one...always had a DJ for Corporate Events. My wife thought I was too generous.

Hell, they were awesome. So, I tipped them $250.00.

Was that excessive???

Your thoughts are appreciated!

Tipping is all dependant on the giver and the quality of performance. A lot of vendors/places tack on gratuity to their fees and contracts, and with a band, you want to take into consideration how many members there were. If you felt $250 was a good amount then it was!
