The Client is You
The DiscoJackers are; The DJs who are performing, or anyone officially acting on their behalf.
The Venue is where we are playing.
The Client shall ensure that all details given of the venue are correct.
There will be adequate set up time available before the start time and after the event to de-rig. The Client should clearly indicate what access is available, stairs, lifts, car parking suitable for 2 vehicles etc.
The DiscoJackers will be holding your date exclusively with much forward planning involved. Cancellations must be made in plenty of time in writing or by e-mail. No telephone cancellations can be accepted. Should the event be cancelled for reasons entirely beyond The Clients control then the booking will be reviewed and a new date set if required and possible.
The DiscoJackers will try to fulfil its obligations in the events of unforeseen circumstances by any other means should this be necessary.
It is the Client's responsibility to ensure that all guests conduct themselves in a proper manner at all times. The Client must be responsible for all guests and their actions.
The Client will provide adequate supervision of its guests, including minors, at the venue, and will be liable for any loss of or damage to the The DiscoJacker's equipment or personnel belongings, caused by guests attending the function.
No violent, aggressive or abusive behaviour from anyone under any circumstances will be tolerated, and The DiscoJackers reserves the right to terminate the disco at any time if any personal safety is under threat. The DiscoJackers do not take responsibility for ejecting any unwanted persons from any venue. The Client will be advised of any problems arising in this respect with any guests.
The DiscoJackers will act in a fully responsible attitude at all times, during their attendance to the venue, it will set up and run as requested by The Client.
The DiscoJackers will be responsible for producing certificates of Public Liability Insurance (PLI) and Portable Appliance Testing (P.A.T) which are available to download off the website. If the website downloads are unavailable, please request this on your booking form.
The Client will be responsible for the safety and security of any theft of items of The DiscoJackers.
The DiscoJackers are not liable for any damage on the venue; any potential hazard must be pointed out by the client or the venue staff at the time of set-up. A site visit prior to the event may be necessary.
The Client is also responsible for any damage to The DiscoJackers' equipment caused by any person at the event. The Client will be charged for the full cost of any repairs required. The Client will be advised of any damage as soon as it is caused.
Health and Safety
The DJ will adhere to all rules and regulations of the current HSE law and refer to the Purple Guide for best practices, to which The Client must also, depending on the circumstances and event type. Subject to failure to conform to the above act The DiscoJackers cannot take any further part of the event.
In the event of fire, flooding, public disturbance, terrorist activity or any other threat to the public, The DiscoJackers will not be responsible to help in any way or evacuate any venue or building where they are present and / or working within, unless the fire regulations for the venue specify otherwise. This would usually incur a vocal announcement (or common sense).
The Client will allow suitable time for the installation and dismantling, and removal of equipment (minimum of one hour). The Client also ensures that safe and adequate power is available. The DiscoJackers will ensure that any equipment that requires connection to a power source is electrically safe and conforms to the current HSE law.
The Client must ensure that the entire venue has all relevant licences, and conforms to all the local bye-laws as The DiscoJackers cannot perform in a venue that has not got all required licences.
The Client must ensure that there is adequate parking for The DiscoJackers on the night for off loading and loading of the equipment, in a safe and secure manner. Should there be items stolen during this procedure it is the responsibility of The Client unless stated.
If the performance start time is delayed due to the inability of The DiscoJackers to gain access to the performance area, or any other delay beyond The DiscoJackers reasonable control, The DiscoJackers will not be liable for any refund whatsoever.
If you are booking other entertainment (e.g. Singer, comedian, band etc) as well as hiring ourselves, please consider & think about the amount of space available and where The Client is going to put the disco. Speaker location is usually best if it is no greater than 10 metres either side from the position of the presenter. Best practice would be for us to establish contact with the other entartainment prior to the event.
The DiscoJackers also reserve the right to refuse to continue any event prior to the start should there not be sufficient floor space which would not allow the audio / lighting equipment to be assembled safely.
The DiscoJackers reserve the right to substitute alternative entertainment should uncontrollable circumstances dictate the need to do so. The DiscoJackers will be responsible for producing certificates of Public Liability Insurance and P.A.T. Testing carried out on our equipment. We will not be responsible for any damage or loss to private or public property caused by invited guests or members of the public.
As The DiscoJackers work very unsociable hours, although not necessary, we ask if refreshments could be supplied.
All bookings should be taken on the understanding that the venue is in possession of the necessary entertainment & liquor licenses. The DiscoJackers are not responsible if the venue is found to be in breach of the terms of their license.
If you would like further clarification of what any of the above means or you are unsure of any of our terms please contact us.
