Your signed contract must be returned to us along with any required deposit in order to to perfect your reservations. We may provide specific time limitations or deadlines under which our contract offer will be honored, and we may revoke or amend our offer at any time should you fail to respond within the time frame allowed. (see: revocability) In circumstances under which the normal contract process cannot proceed, such as when services are requested and rendered with immediate urgency, the default terms of our basic and usual contract for such services shall apply. Acceptance or use of the services shall constitute assent to those terms. Revocable Your contract offer will be valid only within a specific time frame. To perfect the agreement you must sign and return your contract to us along with any required deposit within that time frame. We may withdraw our offer should you fail to do so. If we make subsequent offers, we will not be bound by the terms of any previous offer. If your contract and deposit are received after the specified time frame has expired we may at our option choose to accept or reject the agreement in its entirety. You would be notified and your deposit (if any) returned in such case where your contract offer had expired and we chose not to accept your confirmation. Substitution Entertainment contracts will include a protection clause whereby we will make every reasonable effort to provide equivalent alternate entertainment upon advice, and in the event that the designated performer is unable to perform. Any such substitution would be subject to your approval, and at no additional cost to you. Proformance cannot guarantee the availability of designated performers and reserves the right of substitution to deal with instances of detention due to illness, accident, labor dispute, conflict of interest, or other circumstance which may arise. Customers sole recourse absent the availability of similar substitute entertainment shall be a refund of the deposit and any payments made prior to the event date. Change of Service We will make every effort to accommodate changes in the services you hire, schedule permitting, and subject to availability of labor and resources. Call us early with any changes. The greater the lead time the better able we will be to accommodate your needs.  Changes of date, time, or venue, may create schedule conflicts. In such circumstances we cannot guarantee the availability of all performers and all featured services. You would be notified if changes to your event require substitution or omission with regard to any portion of your service. Extension of Time Proformance reserves the right to limit service to the hours contracted in advance. You may however, with the express consent of the manager of the facilities in which your event is held, and our schedule permitting, request an on-site extension. Such an extension will be at the sole discretion of the performers or staff serving your event, except that any such extension must be paid at the overtime rate designated by your contract. Overtime rates are generally higher than the rate that would apply had the additional time been booked in advance. Limit of Liability Our liability for failure to perform in whole or in part, any portion of the agreement or services requested, or failure of any performer to render service with respect to any subjective standard, is limited to the face value of the contract for those services. Proformance makes no guarantee of suitability for a particular purpose, and no assurances of any specified outcome with regard to entertainment services hired. Transfer Entertainment contracts, rental agreements, and other service agreements are non-transferable, and the obligations of the purchaser named in those agreements may not be transferred to, or assumed by any third party. Rented equipment may not be sublet Persons who contract services for the purpose of resale, incorporation into larger offerings, for any agency, or on behalf of any third party, assume all responsibility for claims or disputes arising form the resale of those services, or from the failure of any performer to render service with respect to any third party's agreed upon, or subjective standard. Back to Top DEPOSIT Certain minimum advance deposits may be required to reserve our disc jockey, lighting, rental, and other services. Advance deposits are reservation surety, and are non refundable in the event of cancellation, postponement, or other condition which might void our obligation to deliver or perform the agreed upon service. Reservation deposits will be applied toward the final balance due, however such deposits when required for the reservation of equipment rental shall not be deemed to be in lieu of security or other deposits and charges assessed for damage, late return, or other condition specific to that rental. The amount of any required deposits will be expressly disclosed in the agreement or contract form. Deposit Amount The minimum required deposit for most disc jockey services shall not be more than 25% of the total contracted price, except where the amount in excess of 25% pertains to the purchase of non-returnable or non-refundable retail goods on behalf of the client, or represents non-refundable costs incurred by nature of the agreement The minimum required reservation deposit for rental services may vary with the nature of the product or services hired. In most cases this shall not exceed 50% of the total contract price, except where the amount in excess of 50% represents non-refundable costs incurred by nature of the agreement, or for the purchase of non-returnable retail or wholesale goods on behalf of the client. Deposit Paid Using Credit Card We accept major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, for payment of any or all deposits and the balance of purchases. Credit cards presented for payment of disc jockey, lighting, rental and other services to be rendered at a future date shall be billed only for the minimum deposit required to secure the reservation of those services, provided that: the date on which the services are to be rendered is not within ten days of the date the card is presented for payment, and/or the customer has not specifically authorized prepayment, or any charge amount in excess of the minimum required deposit. Deposit by credit card as stated for other deposits above, is reservation surety and is non-refundable. The receipt of credit card information does not itself constitute a valid deposit. Deposit shall be deemed received when the authorized charges are approved and the funds are made available to us by the appropriate merchant service or issuing bank. You may elect at the time of deposit to have the remaining balance automatically charged to your credit card on the date that it becomes due (generally 10 days prior to the event), and/or may prepay your account at any time without risk of forfeiture on any amounts in excess of the minimum required deposit and incurred costs as described above. Waiver of Deposit We may at our discretion waive the deposit required for reservation without waiving any of our other rights under the service agreement. Waiver of deposit is not a reduction of any amounts due, or release from liability for other amounts assessed under the terms of the agreement including but not limited to late payment or returned check fees, assessments for damage, late returns, or other accrued charges. There is no circumstance under which a waiver of deposit is automatic, and a waiver of any required deposit should not be assumed as a result of our failure or inability to collect said amount in advance. Transferability of Deposit Deposits may be carried forward in the case where an event is postponed and rescheduled within 6 months of the original date. To qualify the event rescheduled must be substantially the same event originally postponed except for change of venue or time. Transferability of deposit does not apply to rental reservations. Deposits or other prepayments which pertain to the purchase of non-returnable or non-refundable retail goods on behalf of the client, or  non-refundable costs incurred by the nature of the original agreement are non-transferable and not recoverable. Transferability of deposit will not apply to any postponed event deemed to have been terminated early. (see: Cancellations) Back to Top CANCELLATION Notice You may cancel your event at any time, however any required deposits, payments, or balance due as of the date you serve us with notice of cancellation will become immediately due and payable; and/or forfeited as liquidated damages. Settlement Unless otherwise specified in the agreement, if notice of cancellation occurs more than ten days prior to the event date, only the minimum required deposit, and/or any amounts which pertain to the purchase of non-returnable or non-refundable retail goods on behalf of the client, or  non-refundable costs incurred by the nature of the original agreement are non-refundable and not recoverable. Payments received in excess of the minimum required deposit and other incurred costs will be refunded. Unless otherwise specified in the agreement, if notice of cancellation occurs within ten days prior to the event date all payments received to date are non-refundable and non-recoverable. Any remaining balance will be due and payable in full. Early Termination Unless otherwise specified in the agreement, when an event is cancelled or discontinued after it has already commenced; whether voluntarily, or due to weather, accident, act of God, insufficient participation, civil disobedience, citation, order of any public authority, or other circumstance not the direct result of our failure, inability, or unwillingness to deliver the agreed upon services, it shall be deemed to have been terminated early. In such cases all payments received to date will be non-refundable and non-recoverable and any remaining balance will be due and payable in full. Transferability of deposit will not apply to postponement of an event deemed to have been terminated early. Back to Top PAYMENT     Method Payments may be made by check, cash, money order, or major credit card including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

Back to Top MUSIC SELECTIONS Content Advisory Music selections containing explicit or profane language are not regularly included among our music libraries. Clients and their guests may provide their own material for program inclusion, however Proformance - through the discretion of it's DJs reserves the right to limit; restrict; or refuse play of any material which may b Offensive to the sensibilities of any of the audience present; inconsistent with the guidelines set forth by the event planners; specifically marked with any advisory or content warning label; unmarked or otherwise content indeterminate. This is not a guarantee of suitability of all program material for any particular audience, and no assurance with regard to material content; the elimination of profanity; or elicit audience response, should be implied.

Back to Top PREVIEWS of SERVICE Private events We do not allow clients to preview our services by attending or visiting an event at which we are entertaining. Most of the events at which we entertain are private and we are at that time under the employ of the event sponsor. It is inappropriate for us to use our event schedule as a sales tool. Our performances are tailored specifically to meet the guidelines set forth by our client, and not to enhance our image - we expect our DJs to focus entirely on the job at hand. Furthermore, we perform at over 300 events each year and receive many times that number of inquiries. Allowing previews of this nature would be overwhelming to both our clients and our staff. References We can provide a list of recent references related to the type of event you are planning, or specific to a particular DJ you have requested. Our list is compiled based on clients who have given us permission to include their information for this purpose. Customers with a pending entertainment agreement may obtain a list of references by contacting our office. To preserve the privacy of our past clients references are only released upon request and mailed under separate cover rather than included with sales literature. Some clients on our lists may not be available due to address/phone changes (as might follow a wedding). We generally include enough references to compensate for any outdated information. If you experience problems please contact us for additional references. Names are added and dropped from our list of references on a rolling basis. Some clients may never be called, while a few may be called a few times within a year of their event. If you experience problems with calls seeking a reference, or would like to be eliminated from these lists please contact our office. Please remember that references are released only upon request to our most serious new customers. The largest portion of our schedule is repeat customers and referrals. Back to Top
