Hi guys/gals, well, that was a right kick in the pants...I was recently booked to do a charity gig where I was told in advance by the musical director that because it was charity the money wasnt great and I'd only get "x" amount for the gig..I had no problem with that cos it was for charity. So, I do the gig and at the end the organiser comes up to me with a cheque book and thanks me for the job I'd done and asks what I'm owed, so, I tell her the figure the MD told me...no problem she wrote out the cheque and that was that....later I found out the other session guys waived their fee because they knew the people involved and did the gig as a favour. Now I feel terrible even though as the MD put it.." you didnt know the people involved and I hired you to do a job so you have to get paid" This SUCKS!! cos it now looks like I'm a "bread head" only interested in money.. Anyone else ever experience this?
