You've just been offered an interesting gig. How would you like to play with a major international touring act, on stage every night, playing and singing songs you grew up listening to on the radio? Oh, and one more thing... we'll pay you big bucks.

Sound good? Probably. Could it be better? You bet. Have you considered things like: How do you travel? Where do you sleep? What do you eat? Do you have to play behind a scrim in the dark all night every night? Can you tell anyone you are doing it, or did it?

This office has handled many touring sideman agreements. We know what to ask for, what can be had, and how to not blow the gig. And trust us, we know lawyers who have blown the gig.
