|Crazy Knights Booking Terms and Conditions – ‘the small print’
– to be read, understood and retained by the client.
If you have any questions, please ask.
|1 Our acceptance of this form and deposit confirms booking and should be received within 20 days of initial contact, or as agreed.
|2 A normal booking would allow for the band to play for a maximum of approximately 2 hours, with a break. If an event is due to end at midnight please don’t expect us to start at 7.30! Times and durations can be negotiated against these guide lines.
|3 The client is to provide a suitable performing area. Unless otherwise agreed, the client must provide an electrical supply meeting, or exceeding british standards. For any outdoor events suitable dry cover must be provided. If in the event the staging is waterlogged and unsafe to perform the band will not be held accountable and not be made to set up and perform. The full fee will still be due.
|4 The band will assume that all venues comply with usual safety regulations and the venue or organisers hold public liability insurance unless notified otherwise.
|5. Sound limiters & volume
5.1 The adjustment of the volume and sound level of any equipment shall be as the Client reasonably requires should the Client request such an adjustment.
5.2 The band cannot guarantee the quality of its performance should the volume be reduced below the level of any unamplified drum kit and/or backline instruments.
5.3 The band cannot be held responsible for non-performance in circumstances where a sound limiter is set so low that live music performance is not possible for an Artist of its type.
|6 The band requires easy access to venue from vehicles and sufficient time and space to set up. Ideally at least 90 minutes and, where possible, before guests arrive. We know that this isn’t always possible.
|7 The band supplies its own stage-lighting – but organisers must ensure sufficient venue lighting for safety and atmosphere. In some venues the organiser will need to obtain details of lighting in advance
|8 The band request reasonable refreshments to be provided during the engagement, including a hot meal (including 1 vegan meal) and drinks. Please let us know if this will not be possible.
|9 The band agrees that if a standard performer is unavailable the Artist shall use the services of a deputy performer of commensurate quality rather than cancel the booking.
