Once you have played a few gigs, you have found out that there's a lot more to it than showing up on time and playing. Did you get your soundcheck? Did you get a hot meal? Did you get paid in full?

Once you've reached another level, detailed technical and hospitality riders make the difference between an easy gig and a tough one.

As a tour manager for a regional band, Rob Falk had his share of moving the drums for the opener, antique deli platters, and no showers. As in-house counsel to Aerosmith for a decade, Attorney Falk was instrumental in drafting, negotiating and enforcing rider provisions with major national and international promoters.

Whether you are a baby band who is sick of the club's baloney, or a touring band with insurance and hospitality needs, this office can make sure that your contract spells out the deal and that the promoter lives up to it.
