What is this Agreement for?
This agreement is for a manager to promote a band or group of musicians for the production and sale of their music.
The music band manager agreement is between the manager and a recording company formed by the band members. It sets out the services the manager will provide and deals with the payment he receives – commission on the sales of records plus some agreed expenses.
What are the main issues?
Scope of manager’s services: these need to be established in some detail, probably in a schedule to the agreement. Exclusivity is one important element, as are the general obligations of the manager to perform the services in the best interests of the band. The agreement also deals with duration and termination rights
Role of company. The company representing the musicians will have responsibility for their attendance at recording sessions, quality of production etc.
Fee arrangements for manager. These will vary but our document provides for the manager to be paid a percentage of all royalties and other earnings of the band
Intellectual property needs to be covered – the rights will remain with the band who will also be responsible if any third parties their music infringes any third party’s copyright.
Confidentiality is another important aspect of this type of agreement.
