What are the negative implications of getting paid by check in your name for the whole band?
Only one I can think of is the cheque bouncing. Which would be a very bad idea for the club owner to do, since the guy's reputation as a bouncer would spread very very fast.
Other than that... you just cash the cheque ASAP and pay the band members. No prob.
We got paid by check for a couple gigs last year. The bar manager took the bandleaders SSN down, so that meant he had to pay taxes...
So by the time we got our cut, less the tax burden which was taken out in advance, we only made $20 each per night...or was it $15, I forget...anyhow checks suck. Cash rules.
Oh yeah it took 3 weeks to get paid too. Pathetic. Oh, and that was the gig my old Kustom head fried....(but i had a spare Peavey head on hand)...what a deal....
