Magenta Jazz Artist Management & Consulting Services www.magentajazz.com  Newark, New Jersey  Phone: (973) 393-8280  Email: aprilgrier@magentajazz.com Fees and Rates All Fees Are Negotiable While Considering the Below Common Practices Managers: generally earn a percentage of the band's income: 15% to 20% is the industry norm. In addition to their percentage, managers should not have to cover any expenses out of their own pocket . Booking Agents: follow the most common arrangement between a band and an agent and earn between 15% and 20% of the money paid to a band for a gig. Promoters: make a deal with you for profits from the show. You will likely have either a set amount that you will be paid, no matter how many people turn up, or a &quot;door split&quot; agreement contingent upon the scale of the event.
