I have finally obtained the resources to start making some serious money in music. The people I am working with "guys in my band" all want to start working on these projects with me with different people doing different task. We want to open a booking agency, publishing company, along with a private instruction studio. My question is, should I register these businesses under the same name... or would it be smart to have a different name for each "business?" The money made is going to different people.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

It would be wise to consult with a business lawyer, if you're serious about it, and go over the situation in a lot more detail than you have here.

Business plans for each, including planned operation and the distribution of revenue would be good as well.

All completely different businesses. Narrow your focus to one or two ideas and develop laser focus on those.
