CONTRACTS                      CLUB 1                                  CLUB 2                                  CLUB 3                                  CLUB 4

Description                Cover Charge/PP $1-$3                  60/40 Split                             70/30 Split                             Guarantee

50 seats x $30                      $  1,500                                  $  1,500                                  $  1,500                           $  800 - $  1,500

$2 per person                        -     100                                  -      600                                -       450                                     N/A                                   

Less Tech                              -     250                                 Included                                 Included                                 Included

NET PROFIT                        $  1,150                                  $      900                                $  1,050

Less MD                                -      300                                -       300                                -       300                                -       300

As you can see from the above, CLUB 2 and CLUB 3, while they do not charge you for Tech, the 60/40 or 70/30 split is usually more than what you’re paying for the Per Person and Room Charge contract…$350 vs. $600 or $450. Under the scenario above, CLUB 1 is still the best “deal”.

You can also see that your net PROFIT for production costs alone is higher under CLUB 1’s contract…$1,150 vs. $1,050 or $900. ($100 - $250 LESS!)  The “Guarantee” amount sounds great in theory…BUT…look at the difference here based on 100 seats which is what these larger, named clubs expect you to sell.                             

                                               CLUB 1                                  CLUB 4

Description                Cover Charge/PP $1-$3                  Guarantee

100 seats x $30                    $  3,000                                  $  1,200 *Guarantee is based on the ticket price & this would be for a $30 ticket.
$2 per person charge          -      200                                       N/A

Less Tech                              -    300                                   Included

NET PROFIT                        $  2,500                                  $  1,200

Less MD                                -      300                                -      300

Less Bass                              -      250                                -      250

NET AFTER BAND              $    1,950                                 $     650   *$1,300 LESS for the same number of people!

These figures do not include your charts, your director’s fee, weekly rehearsals, the final band rehearsal, studio costs, postcards or additional tech time. The approximate total cost to produce a show these days is about $3,000 - $5,000 depending on whether you have just an MD or a full band and how many rehearsals you do. This amount will go down the more shows you do and the most seats you sell.

SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK RE CONTRACTS:

Tech Fee & what that covers…How long is your tech rehearsal?

Room Charge..

Additional Tech Fee if you need it.

Per Person Fee over your set cover charge

Minimum number of people required on the books before they cancel show.

Can you pay for the difference in their minimum in order to do the show?

How they notify you if they cancel a show?

What do they charge YOU if you have to cancel and when is the cut off date? (Mark it in your calendar.)

Comp policy.

Press policy.

Do they feed you and the band after the show.
