A couple of issues here:
The ultimate fact at stake here is that the Burgandy show in March was an excellent promotional opportunity for Phasma. As a support band, the incentive that the performance offers was greater. Hence the cost per musician to perform as part of Phasma in their standard format (lineup, stage costume and music stand banners) is less than the cost per musician to perform as part of a backing duo dressed all in black without music stand banners - not to mention the extra rehearsal time it would take to learn the music.
In addition, the duo would be transcribing lead sheets for an original artist that they would not be able to perform anywhere else. The work/effort would need to be factored into the total time in terms of the asset value of the resources produced (number of future uses).
Attached below is an excel of the Jan/Feb hours breakdown for the Burgandy shows.
