Hey guys. We did our first gig this Sat, it went absolutely phenominal. We just rocked the place. Our "band meeting" was last night, to go over things. Long story short, one of the many things that were talked about were the handling of the cash we get from the shows. That show, we recieved $260. Divided amoung five of us. However I will not (or will anybody else) recieve any of the money directly, for this gig or any other ones to come. Instead it goes into a pool to buy new equipment, or better equipment (etc etc). My stuff & full rig is already 100% paid for, nobody elses is, asides from the vocalist. Apparently everything is documented on a spreadsheet (and I trust him, its not a big deal). Although I'd appreciate the money going directly to me, and I can spend it the way I want. I dont really see the point of this, in all reality. Its kind of like a "pre-paid credit card (for every single person)" system, abiet for things such as a touring van, gas to shows, beer, equipment and so on and so forth. Just wondering if there is any red-flags I should know about, or whether this is a good idea and so on. This is my first real band that actually does shows, so I'm pretty new to the scene. Any tips or advice would be much appreciate.
