Hey,

My band is wanting to cover a song, however, we cannot figure out who to contact about royalties. We've tried to look through ASCAP, BMI, and the Harry Fox Databases but came up empty. Is there anywhere else to look?

thx

depends on what you are going to do with it. If you are just playing clubs with it, then the club owner pays BMI and ASCAP for that, not you.

If you are recording it and going to sell the recording then its a different story.
