If a Buyer provides feedback that your vocals are not meeting their standard, we will recommend that you seek professional vocal lessons to bring your act up to standard.

If a Buyer provides feedback that your sound is not meeting their standard, we will review your production set up with you to establish the cause of the sound issue in order to address.

If a Buyer provides feedback that your behaviour was abusive and threatening, they may seek to withhold payment if you have breached their Code of Conduct. We will advise you in this instance and urge you to issue an official apology and make some changes in your Music Business Wellness program as a result.

Maintain a Show Survival Kit containing strings, gaff, cables, batteries, mics, picks, sticks, extension leads, power boards, stationary, tape, staples, pens and of course a first aid kit.

Establish a Show Emergency Plan: Who does what when? Talk about every worst-case scenario possible and plan for it with your very own Show Survival Kit that covers, loss of voice, car breaking down, traffic, storms, gear malfunction, band break ups. Talk about what you will do when whatever happens to you and put a Show Emergency Plan in place.

Check your Vehicle and get it serviced quarterly. Check the oil, brakes, tyres – is it ready to transport you to the show this week?
