I tried to Google it, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. So my question is, how does the manager make money from the DJ? Here is what I think, and correct me if I'm wrong please. The manager is the person who books the DJ at the venue right? And then the manager gets a cut from the performance? I don't know how much is it, 10%, 15%, 25%? So if they paid a DJ $1000, the manger will get around $150 from it? Is that how it goes? Okay, well... Let's say it's a small time manager and a small time DJ. The DJ gets booked by himself once every 2 weeks. The manger comes in and tells him, "Okay, from now on... all the bookings that will happen, will go threw me, and I get 15% of the cut", so what happens if the manager doesn't get any bookings through him, but the 2 gigs a month that the DJ use to get before the manager calls him up, goes through the manager, and the manager pockets 15% from a gig that was there even before he showed up?
