w9-form.pdf As an independent contractor, you must fill out a w9 form. If you do not fill one out, you will not be paid after the gig(s). However, you can do this after you have a confirmed gig. 267 KB
If you hit the SUBMIT button and nothing happened, it means there was a field that was REQUIRED that you didn't fill out. Scroll back up to find the little red notice that tells you which field is required. Then try that SUBMIT button again!

PLEASE Tell colleagues about these opportunities!!!! Spread the word! Use these Social Media buttons or post anywhere else you know of!
There is never any charge or fee of any kind to apply for work. Any person or any website that makes you pay money to help you get gigs is probably a scam, in my opinion!!! You will have to join the union to play any gigs that are union contracts, of course.
