Why can't they see that I'm right? Last night I rented out a hall and hosted a rock concert. There were three bands, who all played for free. It was enough for them to play in front of a sizeable crowd. It cost 5 bucks to get in the door, and we let in as many people as the hall's fire code allowed--nearly 250 customers. At the end of the night, some smart alleck did the math and realized that I had grossed about $1250. Some of the band members then decided that the original deal was unsatisfactory and that they should be entitled to a portion of the take. I refused to amend the deal, as I'm sure they would have in the event the concert was unprofitable and I had asked them to help cover some of my expenses. In the future, I would be willing to work out a profit sharing agreement, where after my expenses are covered, the bands and I split the rest 80-20. The fact of the matter is, they need me just as much as I need them, so this seems equitable. What are you thoughts on this?
