Rules for dating a musician consolidating companies with different year ends

Primarily he plays an upright bass in a jazz band that plays around town, and is an audio engineer for some of the shows coming through town.

While I am supportive of him and his career, there is no denying how NOT frugal it is to be a musician. The upright bass alone is several thousand dollars.
