TERMS & CONDITIONS
Confirming the booking
A booking is only confirmed when the booking form has been completed and the £25 booking fee has been paid and you have received confirmation from MJS Entertainment.
Payment of fees
The non-refundable £25 booking fee will be required within 1 week of making your booking. The outstanding balance will be required 2 weeks prior to the date of your event. If this is not paid by the date due we then have the right to cancel your booking and you will lose your non-refundable £25 booking fee.
We charge £0.50 per mile outside of a 20 mile radius of Yeovil.
Cancellation by the client:
In the event that the client cancels the booking, the client agrees to inform MJS Entertainment immediately.
If the client cancels more than 4 weeks before the event then a full refund will be given back to the client (excluding booking fee).
If the client cancels 4 - 3 weeks before the event 50% of the total balance (excluding booking fee) will be returned to the client and 50% will be kept by MJS Entertainment.
If the client cancels 7 days before the event 100% of the total balance will be kept by MJS Entertainment.
The main reason for the above is because when you book the date is taken off the website and reserved solely for you an no one else can book it, therefore we will be refusing business on the agreement that you will hire.
Most people book 4 weeks in advance therefore we have a chance of re-booking an item if you cancel, however less than 4 weeks makes it more difficult to hire out the item.
Therefore we suggest that you are 100% sure before you book
Cancellation by MJS Entertainment:
In the very unlikely event that MJS Entertainment cancels the booking due to unavoidable circumstances, MJS Entertainment agrees to inform the client of the cancellation and make all reasonable attempts to find a suitable replacement DJ at no extra cost to the client.
Should a suitable replacement not be found, MJS Entertainment agrees to refund any other fees already paid in advance.
Changes on the day
Where possible, changes to the schedule which are unavoidable on the day of the event should first be discussed & agreed with MJS Entertainment.
Should this not be possible, changes are to be agreed between the client and MJS Entertainment prior to their performance. Any changes will be subject to these terms and conditions.
In the event that MJS Entertainments performance is delayed due to unavoidable circumstances, liability is limited to providing the client with performance time equal to time lacking or a discount or refund at a pro rata rate based on the time of commencement of music.
Any delayed set up time or subsequent delayed start time due to the overrun of any prior proceedings or of situations being outside of MJS Entertainment control will not warrant any extension of the stated finish time or any fee reduction. However, at the sole discretion of the DJ and with the permission of the venue management, an extension of these performing times may be made. The DJ will charge an additional fee. This fee must be paid in cash to the DJ before any extra time commences.
The client must supply a minimum of one hour to enter a venue and set up prior to the start time and also a similar time allowance at the end of the night to pack up. This time can be reduced if access is good and the DJ is familiar with the venue. If access to the venue is difficult e.g. stairs or distance from unloading area etc, please do try and let MJS Entertainment know about the access upon booking.
MJS Entertainment will make every reasonable effort to supply and play requests that are advised up to 14 days in advance of the event.
The client agrees to provide MJS Entertainment with any music that they have requested where MJS Entertainment has informed them that he is unable to supply it.
The DJ will make reasonable effort to play as many additional requests notified by the client and those canvassed from guests during the evening (unless the client has specified that they do not wish guests to make requests), as they can, however, there is no guarantee that all requests will be played. The DJ reserves the right to refer any requests of a questionable nature to the client or the venue management.
It is agreed by the client and the DJ that the equipment and instruments of the DJ are not available for use by other performers or persons except by specific permission from the DJ.
Where permission had been given for use of the DJ’s equipments by others, MJS Entertainment will not be responsible for its working order or any problems to other services it may cause.
In the unlikely event the DJ’s performance is delayed or terminated due to major equipment failure i.e. music is unable to be played, liability is limited to providing the client with a pro rata rate discount/refund of the booking fee from the time of termination.
The DJ accepts no liability for minor equipment failure i.e. failure that does not result in termination of music. MJS Entertainment accepts no liability for equipment failure/music termination caused by any ‘Sound Limiter’ shutting off the supply of electricity to the DJ’s equipment. The client must ensure protection of the DJ’s equipment from adverse weather conditions, where the DJ’s location is not inside e.g. gardens, marquees etc. The client will be fully liable for any damage to equipment, caused by adverse weather conditions or damage caused by any guest at your event. Payment for any damaged equipment should be received by MJS Entertainment within 7 days of the event or further costs may be charged. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that there is an adequate provision of electrical power within ten metres of the DJ’s set-up point
It is the clients responsibility to check with all venues that our equipment can be used.
Withdrawal Of Services
In case of verbal and/or physical violence towards the DJ’s or any person/person’s connected with MJS Entertainment, the client will be asked to have this/these people removed from the venue. If an agreement regarding this can not be resolved then the services from MJS Entertainment will be stopped, and the client will be liable for the remainder of any fee due.
In the case of damage being caused to any equipment (either belonging to contracted to or leased to MJS Entertainment) by the client or any person/person’s at the event, the service’s of MJS Entertainment may be stopped, and the client will be liable for the remainder of any fee due, and the client will also be fully liable for any damage to equipment.

Any issues that arise during the event must be communicated to MJS Entertainment at the time that they arise in order for the DJ to have an opportunity to solve the issue.
The DJ is unable to resolve issues if they are not aware of any situation that may occur during a performance.
In the unlikely event that you should feel dissatisfied with any aspect of services provided by MJS Entertainment and the issue was not resolved during the event, the client must contact us in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of the end of the event.
MJS Entertainment will not enter into any discussions with regards to the individual DJ’s presentation style or content as this is a subjective interpretation.
