So, if you haven't read my post from a while back regarding our jerk guitarist, check it out here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=563000 That drama is long past and we have a couple new people in the band now. We're starting to book more gigs and the new members are offering to help. I was thinking of writing up a contract that each band member would sign stating that any gig the person books for the band would still be performed by the band in the case that the person leaves the band before the show is scheduled. Something like this: I __________(name) agree that any gig I book for _________(band name), I will send an email to each member of the band stating that the gig was booked for _________(band name) and the amount the venue has agreed to pay the band. In the event that I am unable to perform this gig with ______(band name) for any reason, including quitting the band or being asked to leave the band, before the show is scheduled, I will not contact the venue for any reason, including: canceling the gig, scheduling another band to take the gig or talking to anyone associated with the venue regarding _____(band name) without the consent of all the rest of the band members. If I do any of this without consent from the rest of the band, I will be responsible for payment to each member of the band equal to the amount that the venue agreed to pay the band minus my share. ___________(signature) What do you think?
