The types of contracts clubs will offer range from the standard
AFM contract (contact your local AFM for more information) to
a simple verbally negotiated agreement (remember, a verbal agreement
will hold up in court, so a band can be held liable if they verbally
agree to appear and then simply don't show up). However, a verbal
agreement is a risky way to do business. Memories fade as to what
was exactly said, and misinterpretations of what was said will
