A Band Partnership Agreement is one of the most important agreements for any band to help band operations run smoothly and avoid disputes between members.
This easy-to-understand Band Partnership Agreement allows band members to clearly state how the band members will split ownership of intellectual property and band equipment, share income, use the band name, and other important issues that could cause disputes between band members later. In addition, this Band Partnership Agreement will allow you to designate specific members of your band (ideally your most responsible and trustworthy members) to be in charge of things like booking shows, signing contracts, and managing the band’s money.
(This agreement comes with instructions on how to complete the agreement.)

This Band Partnership Agreement has been prepared by an attorney licensed to practice in the State of California for California residents and for general partnerships organized under California partnership laws. If you are a resident of another state or your partnership is organized under another state besides California, the laws of your state may differ from those reflected in this Band Partnership Agreement and you should retain an attorney in your state to advise you and draft a partnership agreement on your behalf, and/or review this Band Partnership Agreement template before you use it.
The purpose of a band partnership agreement is to anticipate the common problems that any band might face, and address those issues so that the members of the band can avoid later disputes over those issues. It is impossible, however, to anticipate all issues that a band might face, and this template Band Partnership Agreement does not cover or purport to cover every issue that a band might encounter. The template also is general and is drafted to address common problems, not problems specific to your band. There are other types of business entities besides general partnerships that you may consider. This template (and Indie Artist Resource and www.indieartistresource.com) do not purport to provide and are not providing you with legal advice. If you would like advice about the best business entity is best for you or for your band, and/or for the terms of this Band Partnership Agreement or other agreement between/among band members, you should consult with a lawyer licensed in your state and/or your tax advisor who can give advice directed specifically to the needs and issues of you and/or your band.
