Firstly, It was never my intention to manage a band, but since the only new band seemed to be tired indi rock I though that I'd put one together to keep ticking over. Now I find myself booking rehersals, fronting the cash, chasing people into rehersing, even lending cash for their share........ people cant be there for every rehersal (although I always am). The fee is split between the people who turn up. The thing is: that this supposed to be a commertial enterprise - not a social club, even if it won't be a high earner. Last night nearly didn't happen because some decided that they might not be able to come. I would have ended up paying for dead time Would I be right to insist that rehersal fees are split even if the members aren't there? After all, the rest of the band is working. Presumably the earnings would be split evenly! .
