Topic: Contract Resources?

Howdy!

I seriously need to have a contract that I can present when booking gigs. I did a search on the Café, but didn't find anything on the subject... (Then again I only dug five pages in to the search results).

Do any of you know of good resources for putting contracts together?

Should I go ahead and hire a lawyer?

Is there a standard performers contract out there that I could modify for my needs?

I really don't know where to start with this, and I'm afraid if I write something up myself it will bite me in the rump later. Any help at all would be appreciated!

Try this website: http://www.jimkleefeld.com/JWKBooks.html Scroll down to "The Contract Book". This is what I used to setup my birthday party and corporate event contracts.

Good luck,

Thanks Dan! That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.

No problem, it just took me a few minutes on google to put in the right phrase to find it. I was going through some of my things the other day and found my contract book and remembered how helpful it has been to me.
