Word of Warning

For any bands playing at the new music venue LIVE in Preston please learn by our mistakes and get the terms of payment in writing.

We played there on 7th Jan 17 and to date, despite sending revised invoices as requested and emails, texts requesting at least a payment date....... we are still awaiting payment!

Is this a council run gig? If so I have have found Councils throughout the UK to usually pay late. Any recieved paperwork however is proof of a contract including recieved emails and texts.

Still sounds like a lot of hassle for a gig, Sounds like one to avoid, thank you for the warning. Sometimes it's all the hassle you have to go through just to get paid, that makes it not worth the bother. even if you do eventually get paid.
