Agreement For A Musical Performance

I wonder if it`s worth buying a high quality DVD player for you for your performance. If you take this route, you may need to invest something in cable, including several adapters for different AV situations (What if there is a projector screen, but you need to provide audio? What inputs/exits are there on LCD projectors? New TVs? Old TVs? Your DVD player?) Jason, I used an agent for a particular client. Yes, I pay a percentage for the agent`s work, i.e. securing gigs and billing customers. I pay his fee of 15% After the customer offers me a check for the benefit. I`M NOT GOING TO GIVE THIS AGENT A DEPOSIT UNTIL I GET MY COMPENSATION. It sounds like a scam to me and it wouldn`t do business with that agent. I have more than twenty years of experience in music to live. I hope it helps everyone.

Band contracts are easy to do. The few minutes it takes to create a music performance contract, eliminate frustrating payment disputes and help the scene walk more easily. In my contracts has a clause « acts of God » and my understanding is that in a situation like COVID-19, it is out of anyone`s control, and the execution of the contract is impossible to perform, so no compensation is due and deposits are refunded. The only way to refund a down payment is if your hours of work before the date of the event were indicated in the contract separately from the work on the day of the event, in other words, if I meet with the client to provide musical ideas, I should be paid for that time, if I meet them, and not expose that work to the risk of being reimbursed for the event. I had several March event cancellations in April, for which I spent time in advance planning, but I couldn`t stand these events, so I`m the contractor`s grace to get payment for the time I`ve already spent (for future events that are now cancelled). But I`m not a lawyer – so I hope that an entertainment lawyer can weigh in and give a better idea of how the case of God`s clause works, for events with the time of preparation already spent, deposits and the amount that should be repaid. Paul, yes, the 50% deposit is very typical, in some cases I have a little less accepted. However, I am considering renaming the deposit as a « planning fee » or « booking fee » or such a moniker. The reason is that the customer often doesn`t have recognition for the dozen hours that have to pass only for their individual event, and the rest of the payments for our concerts go to Side Musicians as their performance fees. I`ve only had a handful of cancellations in 15 years of events, but the few that have cancelled have always whined about the non-refundable « deposit. » They felt they were paying for « nothing » …

But I had spent many hours planning. But for them, in their head, the feat was all they bought. So even with a contract that did not provide refunds (within a specified time before the event, usually 6 months), the buyer feels like a gross deal. I wonder if someone else has changed the language of « deposit » to « booking fee » or perhaps someone could suggest a better name, which would make the buyer more aware that the money actually paid for all the time spent before the show?
