When a client chooses to proceed with a booking, under the musicians union guidance, we must guarantee all of our artists, musicians and all related third parties in connection to the booking full payment. As such, the full fee must be paid in full by at least ninety days before the date(s) of the engagement(s) in order to secure “the client’s” booking.

 

We can offer payment by instalments to some existing clients. If a client chooses to pay by instalments, we require a minimum of at least a 50% deposit at the time of booking in order to secure your booking. The full payment must be received no later than 90 days before the date of engagement.

 

Payments received from clients will be held in trust in our client account (which is a business bank account in the UK) until the completion of the engagement and a full guarantee will be issued to “the client” from us securing their payment.

 

All payments are non-refundable except in the unlikely event that we are unable to fulfil the contract for reasons such as illness. Please also see clause ‘Force Majeure’ below.

 

If the fee or deposit is not received at least 90 days before the engagement, the date and time booked may not be held and may be offered to another client and the deposit will be lost. Clients will be contacted using the contact details they have supplied to provide an opportunity to make payment before losing an unconfirmed booking. “the client” is responsible for providing the correct contact details at all times.

 

If a booking is made less than 90 days before the date of the engagement(s), we cannot accept payment by instalments and the full fee must be paid immediately in order to confirm your booking. Bookings made in less 90 days will not be confirmed until full payment is received.

 

Any remaining balance due after the engagement must be paid in full within 10 working days.

 

Payment can be made directly to our UK bank account which will be detailed on “the client” invoice.

 

Overtime Costs and Scheduling.

 

Shortly after a booking has been made, “the client” will be issued with all details relating to their booking which will include the pre-agreed start time, duration and finish time. If at a later point, including during the actual engagement, additional time is required for our services for reasons such as the event overrunning or there is a scheduling issue, this will be charged at cost as outlined within the specified Terms and Conditions. Overtime costs are charged per additional hour on a pro-rata basis to the nearest minute.

 

Granting a request for additional time from us will be subject to our availability and therefore additional time, beyond that which is stated on the booking confirmation, cannot be guaranteed.

 

It is the responsibility of “the client” to ensure that an event runs on time and all rehearsals, performance times and any other scheduled activities involving any artist, musicians and services fit within the agreed-upon booking time. While we will try to accommodate unforeseen circumstances, we will not alter the delivery of our services in a way that might jeopardise the quality of our product(s).

 

Musicians Union Guidelines.

 

All of the musicians we use for our performances are members of the Musicians’ Union, a highly-respected organisation looking after the interests of over 32,000 musicians across the globe. Depending on the performance requirements of “the client”, our musicians are subject to their own guidelines as directed by the Musicians’ Union and “the client” must be aware, acknowledge and agree to these at the time of booking.

 

Use of Alternative (‘Dep’) Performers / Understudies.


At the time of booking, we try to ensure that “the artists”, performers, musicians and any supporting performance staff or production team members will consist of the original line-up represented to “the client” at the outset of the booking. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it may be required to substitute a performer. The ‘artists’ will have ‘Dep’ performers available (also referred to as understudies) who will be called upon to cover any artist’s absence in all eventualities and we also reserve the right to use one or more ‘Dep’ performers should we need to. The ‘artist’ is agreeable that ‘Dep’ performers used will truly reflect the quality and ability of “the artist” in a way that has been pre-agreed with “the client” at the original booking stage.

 

Should we need to substitute an available and suitable ‘Dep’ performer, “the artist” may use them without any further consultation or notification to “the client”. Any fee reduction in the case of using a ‘Dep’ performer is not applicable and nor does it mean that the performance can be cancelled unless “the artist” being replaced is of significant celebrity status.
