Recently, it seems fraternities have been going pretty “hard in da paint” when it comes to booking musical acts for parties. I guess brothers who have sweet speakers and a soundboard just don’t suffice anymore. A prime example was a few weeks ago when we posted a video of Waka Flocka Flame performing at a party thrown by Auburn’s Pi Kappa Phi. It looked like a grand old time, but exactly how much did they drop to see girls twerk to a live rendition of “No Hands”?

Now, thanks to the booking agency Degy Entertainment, we know this potentially ran Pi Kapp roughly anywhere from $20,000 to $25,000. Degy compiled a pretty impressive list of performance fees for both megastars and washed up one-hit wonders alike.

Here are some notable artists and their performance fees.

    •Bruce Springsteen: More than a million. Needless to say, you’re not booking The Boss anytime soon.
    •Drake: $300K to $500K. Although, he does seem to jump on bandwagons faster than you can say “trophies,” so maybe just win a few more intramural basketball games.
    •Bob Dylan: $150K to $300K. Maybe spend this money on a time machine and go back to when you could actually understand the words he sings.
    •Chingy: $20K to $30K. “Holidae In” and “Right Thurr” are always crowd pleasers.

You can see the rest of the artists’ fees HERE for your potential booking and viewing pleasure.
