Hello,

I'm interested to hear people's thoughts about using contracts for live gigs? As i'm sure we all know, many things can go wrong at a live gig and surely a contract would help solve a few issues.

However, i've met few musicians who use contracts and then moan when things go wrong! What are your thoughts?

Yes I will always recommend using a contract, I used it 100% in the past, now a days use them less because I got clients that know me well and I know them well and know what to expect from them (anyhow I'm always alert) ... otherwise better use a contract for a gig.

Most of the time musicians are blamed for anything wrong in a gig, may be the flowers, the food, the weather, etc ... it can get ridiculous ... but it is common to blame the artists for any reason, unfortunately.

Another important part is to get paid in advance when ever possible, and see how things change and contractor starts to respect you ...
