GUEST,John Robinson Performers fees (% or flat fee?) (328* d) RE: Performers fees (% or flat fee?) 19 Feb 07


One of my hobby horses is telling young bands not to do these deals but, to be honest, even old hands accept them and if a young band wants to play live they often don't have a choice.

That said, because I have done a lot of work on audience development for my main artist we have done door charge splits where we've given the venue more than 100. You could argue that "door less 100" would be better in those circumstances but in my experience guaranteeing a minimum income to the venue leaves them with no reason to promote. I'd rather give them a bigger piece of the pie in return for more work and comittment.

As you say, it's up to the two parties to reach a deal that they both feel happy with.
