Part 4, of a 4-Part Series, titled "Music Industry Legal & Business Workshops."

With Ben McLane, Esq.

When is the right time for a musical artist or band to start working with a manager and/or booking agent (and vice versa)? What are the differences between a manager and a booking agent? How does a musical artist or band find a manager and/or agent (and vice versa)? What type of agreements/terms apply? This workshop will discuss the basic contractual provisions, industry standards, and more.

Ben McLane, Esq., is an entertainment attorney veteran focusing primarily on music, with many gold/platinum albums and Billboard Top 10 and #1 chart hits to his credit for his work in conjunction with musical artists/projects in various genres over the years (e.g., Guns & Roses, Dixie Chicks, Nine Inch Nails, Alicia Keys, etc.). Ben has also been involved in artist management, talent scouting, promotions, and record label operations in the entertainment field. Ben is one of the few entertainment attorneys who actively “shops” records, publishing and distribution deals for new and established artists, producers and songwriters. Ben is a 1991 graduate of Pepperdine Law School and lives and works in the Los Angeles area.
