Schedule a Recording Artist or DJ
you would like to schedule one of our recording artists or DJ's, we ask
that you are prepared to meet the following criteria, so that we are
better able to serve and protect our clients. You will find this
criteria and the guidelines we require are standard to all agencies. In
this sense, we are not unique at all.
We ask that
you have an established nightclub or a familiar national event or
When you call
us, please be prepared to give us the name of the performer you would
like to schedule and choices of dates that you would like the performer
to appear. In selecting dates, you would be wise to have several dates
available; one that is your preferred date and the remaining that are
available to you.
this information, we will then contact our performers and check into
their availability, their interest in doing the performance and the
amount of money they require to perform.
If you are
approved and accepted as a date the performer has available and is
interested in performing for you, we will then contact you and ask for a
deposit of 50% of the performance fee. We like this deposit to be paid
immediately to hold and guarantee you the date.
On the day of
performance, the artist is to be paid the balance of what is owed in
cash, and no later than 20 minutes prior to the scheduled performance.
As this request for cash is discussed in the very early stages of
communications with us, and then reiterated in a written contract, it
will not come as any suprise to you, in fact, it is so customary, that
most people would find it odd if there wasn't a statement about
this cash payment within a contract provided. You will also find in a
typical contract that the deposit fee is non-refundable and
non-negotiable. This is an industry standard as a means to protect the
performer from losing everything should the date become cancelled,
poorly funded, or poorly promoted, and the performer cannot be paid in
full or cannot have the date replaced. This assures at least partial
compensation to the artist for making themselves available for other
Items such as
the cash issue will be clearly written in a contract with all other
terms, conditions, requirements, and expectations of both you and the
performer, and will be provided to you. You will further discover from
this contract certain actions and standards that we employ in the event
a problems occurs. As the law is both yours and our best defense against
an unfortunate occasion, you will find actions and laws within a
contract that, as an example, state that a performer has the right to
fully exercise their option to not perform, if they are not paid in full,
in cash, and within the allotted time frame prior to an event.
