There is probably another thread relating to this, about bands being keen to play etc.. Here is a press release from the Musicians Union “We are talking to the London Olympics organising committee (LOCOG) about these reports as LOCOG has signed a Principles of Cooperation with the TUC which specifically states that professional workers will be paid for their services and are distinct from the unpaid volunteer workforce. “Our understanding is that all other sectors involved in putting on these events e.g. security, staging, equipment hire etc. are being paid their usual fees but not the musicians. If this is true, it is completely unacceptable and we will take the matter further. Professional musicians should always be offered a fee for their work.” http://www.musiciansunion.org.uk/ne...ndon-olympics-or-queens-jubilee-celebrations/ Has your band being asked to play? offered a fee? I think it is a disgrace that they have not offered same deal as they have for other sectors. What do people think?
