As I do a lot of outdoor weddings, you can imagine that the bride imagines having a beautiful day, perfect weather, no beetles, no wind, no ambient noises, etc. Or for a corporate event, they imagine that the musicians will simply magically appear on time (without realizing that at the same time there is a basketball tournament in town, traffic is blocked and parking costs $ 25 per place). Today`s date name and address of the place of engagement Date(s) of engagement type of engagement (Here I specify what type of concert I do, for approximately how many people and the expected age range of the audience) hours of engagement remuneration The buyer will make payments as follows: 100% due on or before the day of the performance, Payable (your name) In the real world, the “as discussed” could be completely different in the minds of 2 people. Or even 3 or 4 heads of people. Mother of the bride imagines something else, or the CEO doesn`t like music and complains to the host of the event, or the venue is limited that the string quartet is too close to the kitchen doors. For example, a wedding singer could use a performance contract to present the terms of the show to their client (married, married, or wedding planner) as part of the event planning process. In most cases, this indicates that the band or musician is not a collaborator of the person, place or organizer. This helps to ease liability issues. Thank you Dave, I`m just wondering if your contract has any contingencies for how, if the power went out or the speakers didn`t work properly, you`ll end up being responsible for it (I know it`s probably not very common). I think the concerts I do are more “high-level” when you consider ceremonies once in my life.
So maybe I feel more pressure to make everything “perfect.” and therefore my aversion to promising more than I think I can deliver. I really love that the place has a few Mikes near us, it`s always so wonderful that our music is listened to in the back of the guests! Maybe I can find a happy middle class between costs and complications and take advantage of them! Some events are paid for musicians to have pre- or post-event accommodation and may help cover transportation costs. Information on the location of and access to hotels, host families or campsites must be provided in advance as soon as possible. Transport costs such as gas or flight costs (including airport transfers) should be agreed before the date. I get a whole series of questions from subscribers about performance contracts, so I answer them. As someone who doesn`t have the “educational” part of my performance as my main support, I play a lot of metrics. Overall, my experience with the owners has been very good. I used email, text or Facebook to communicate, so there is a written record when there was a payment question. I still wonder if playing without a contract is like driving in a car without a seat belt – “I felt good until..” Most events in which bands perform are supposed to be fun – weddings, music festivals, bars or corporate parties.
Guests should have fun, but both parties should make clear expectations about the group`s performance and access to the bar. It can help limit unnecessary spirit drinks behind the scenes before the group performs if possible. Once again, a very useful and timely contribution! I`m getting to the part of my musical “career” where I`ll need a contractual backbone!! That is exactly what I had to read today. I wonder if it might be worth buying a high-quality DVD player for your performance. If you`re walking this route, you may need to invest a bit in cables, including multiple adapters for different AV situations (what if there was a projector screen but you needed to deliver audio? What are the inputs/outputs of LCD projectors? New TVs? Old TVs? Your DVD player?) Generally speaking, the performance contracts of venues and event organizers are used to determine to the actor the conditions of the upcoming performance. . . .
