Does a notary stamp make a contract legal?

Question Details: I have a contract with a manager that ends in 5 months. Basically, there are 2 guitarists in the band, me being one of them. We're both unhappy with not only our manager but the band as well. We both signed this contract and there were witnesses that signed it. However, I heard from a couple of people that a notary seal is required in order to make that contract a legal document. Is this true? I'm trying to find any loopholes out of the contract.
