I have been playing cover song gigs long enough, and have gotten screwed over enough times by promoters, venues, etc. that I have decided it would be a good decision for me to make a contract for gigs....ESPECIALLY ones that are going to be a steady weekly occurance at a particular place. I do two things, I play cover song gigs, and I am just getting into a simple DJ gig. The DJ gig is going to be happening every Saturday for the next 3 months. My cover song gigs are mostly hit and miss but I'd still like to incorporate a (similar?) contract. I am coming to you guys in great hopes that you can give me some guidelines to cover, or how to word particular things. Or, better yet, maybe show me some examples that I can pick and pull from. I know it is important to include dates, times, services, pay, etc; but this is all new to me and I really dont have any background in this kind of thing. It doesnt have to be super official, but itd be nice if it could potentially hold up in court (if necessary!), and as always, look professional when I hand this over to the venue/promoter. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
