Hello My front man is playing a show and wants me to play drums for him. We are basically filling in between sets for an amateur band and he is getting paid $50. He said he would give me some money if he made more then $50. We are mostly playing his original songs, and he will probably get paid even if i don't show up. I understand he is filling the manager role by getting this gig ,but should i demand a percentage of the money for the show? How does that work? Or should I not worry about it and have fun? I just don't want to get taken advantage of and i know its a small amount but I don't want him to think he can start a trend of ripping me off either? Should i demand a percentage no matter how much? what percentage do i deserve for just playing drums on his songs? on another note he is playing at a local store and will make money eventually. Should I demand a percentage of that when I play with him? Talk to me people. thanks for your insight.
