  1. Only confirmed and scheduled performers may be compensated.

Please ensure that your invoice states only the portion you are to receive of the confirmed amount the band/act is receiving. For example, if your act is confirmed to receive $200 and there are four members of the act receiving equal amounts, be sure your invoice for your portion of the payment is for $50.
