Book Your Band- step 10
10. Set up a business system to deal with tour funds before you leave home. Be sure to make deposits and do not carry large sums of cash. The easiest “tracking software” is the use of envelopes. Put your guarantee into an envelope and mark expenses on the front. You can enter these figures later into a spread sheet. Per diems can be placed in envelopes and handed to band members. Make sure a trusted person at your home base has access to your funds and is able to disperse them for any unexpected expenses while you are away. Always carry a credit card in case of extreme emergencies.
