It is not easy to make it as an entertainer, so once a performer finds a steady gig, they stick with it. There have been acts playing the same clubs and rooms for years…decades, even. Some travel on a circuit, while others stay transplanted in one spot. It is steady money, and for those who are doing it for the love and not necessarily the glitz and glamour, it is a dream come true. They eventually become local celebrities in their own right. Nothing compares to doing what you love and getting paid to do so.
But just like any job, performers are entitled to a certain standard of working conditions. Although they are technically independent contractors, they have the same rights and privileges – within reason – of the staff. If they need a day off, they are expected to follow protocol. The same goes for if they are injured on the job – including slip and fall incidents.

Recently, a singer had a standing gig at a popular South Florida club. She had been performing there for the past two years and was a crowd favorite. Everything was going great. The only issue she had was a loose patch of wood on the stage. For weeks she asked the manager to fix it, and for weeks he had promised her he would. She had stumbled and tripped a few times in the past on the loose wood, but always managed to catch her balance. One night, after her big finale, her heel got caught in the loose flooring, she slid and took a nasty spill. She ended up fracturing her ankle and could not perform for weeks.
