live performance contract for musicians

 

Getting gigs now-a-days is a tough job to do as a newly established band and when you get one you really don’t want to let things go wrong. This world is filled with crooked people and so is music industry. When you get a gig as a performer (Solo Artist or Band), you’ll want to have a Musical Performance Contract in place so the event goes off without a hitch. And if the organizer messes with you then you could sue that person.

False impressions about arrival time, payment and length of play are common issues. Getting points of interest nailed down will make your job easier. A Musical Performance Contract even protects you from last minute cancellations, lacking arrangement in sound system or other accommodation, and it ensures you get paid as conditioned.
