Venue Fees/Hall Fees
Fees that the owner or manager of the Venue charges the artist or the artist’s merchandiser in order to sell artist merchandise at the venue. Most venues will state that their standard fee is 35% of the gross wholesale receipts from the sale of the artist merchandise, but this fee is often negotiable.
Large venues send complete usage returns for all music played in their venue, to PPL and PRS.
Venue License money is divided between the members of PRS and PPL, minus the society commission.
The verse is the meat of a song. The function of the verse is to provide a context, provide background information, set the scene or tell a story, establish the vehicle by which the message of the song will be delivered, develop and evolve the story.
The verse gives listeners a deeper understanding of the main message of the song and it is the main method of giving a sense of progress through a song.
The first verse establishes the meter (lyrical rhythm), the rhyme scheme for further verses, and the type of language and phrasing to be used throughout the song.
Songs commonly have a number of verses, each composed of several lines. Rhyme may or may not be used within verses, but once established a rhyme scheme works best when it is adhered to.
As the song progresses, each verse further develops the story or theme.
