PART A - DJ SERVICES - TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This DJ Services Agreement is made between Maui DJ Services L.L.C. "Maui DJ Services" and the Customer “Customer” and is effective as specified. This agreement shall be binding under the laws of the State of Hawaii.
Neither Party will be liable for any failure or delay in performing an obligation under this Agreement that is due to any of the following causes, to the extent beyond its reasonable control: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, natural catastrophes, changes in laws or regulations, national strikes or fire.
For the avoidance of doubt, Force Majeure shall not include (a) financial distress nor the inability of either party to make a profit or avoid a financial loss or (b) a party's financial inability to perform its obligations hereunder.
Client shall provide DJ with safe and appropriate working conditions. This includes a 6-foot by 6-foot area for setup, space for setting up
speakers and lighting stands. DJ requires a minimum of one 20-amp circuit outlet from a reliable power source within 50 feet (along the wall) of the set-up area. This circuit must be free of all other connected loads. Any delay in the performance or damage to DJ's equipment due to improper power is the responsibility of the purchaser. Two circuits are preferred, where possible. Client shall provide crowd control if warranted; and furnishing directions to place of engagement. Client is responsible for paying any charges imposed by the venue. These charges may include, but are not limited to, parking, and use of electric power.
A written wedding/music planner or music request list must be received from the Client and forwarded to DJ at least thirty days prior to the date of the engagement for it to be included in DJ programming guidelines. With or without the aid of a wedding/music planner or music request list, DJ shall attempt to play Client's and Client's guests' music requests but shall not be held responsible if certain selections are unavailable. DJ will make an extra effort to have music requests available if they are received IN WRITING at least thirty days prior to the engagement.
RECORDING and USE:
No performance on the engagement shall be recorded, reproduced, or transmitted from the place of performance, in any manner, or any
means whatsoever, in the absence of a specific written agreement with DJ relating to and permitting such recording, reproduction, or
transmission. Pictures and videotape of the wedding are permitted for the private use of the contracting party only.
TIME and TRAVEL:
This agreement guarantees that DJ will be ready to perform at the start time of the engagement. If Client or venue requires DJ to complete setup more than thirty minutes before the confirmed start time, or to postpone break-down more than thirty minutes after the confirmed end time, an early setup or late breakdown fee will be applied at $50.00 per hour.
Engagements on the island of Maui will not be assessed a travel charge with the exception of all Hana events. Hana events will be assessed a travel fee. Services requiring travel off the island of Maui (or in Hana) will be charged accordingly.
A 50% retainer fee is due within (14) days of signing the contract which confirms the date. The remaining balance is due (30) days prior to the event.
In the event of non-payment, DJ retains the right to attempt collection through the courts. Client will be held responsible for all court fees, legal fees, and collection costs incurred by DJ. Client shall be charged $25 for each bounced check plus a $7.50 service charge for each collection notice.
The agreement of the DJ to perform is subject to proven detention by accidents, riots, strikes, or any other legitimate conditions beyond their control. If such circumstances arise, all reasonable efforts will be made to find replacement entertainment at the agreed upon fees. Should DJ be unable to procure a replacement, Client shall receive a full refund. Client agrees that in all circumstances, DJ liability shall be exclusively limited to an amount equal to the performance fee and that DJ shall not be liable for indirect or consequential damages arising from any breach of contract.
All retainer fees are nonrefundable unless the DJ cancels the engagement. Retainer fees cover all pre-event planning expenses which include but are not limited to the use of online planning systems, event consultation through phone calls and emails, contract services, office work and more.
Should the client decide to cancel the engagement within (30) days of the event all payments (100% of the contract value) are due immediately (if not already paid in full) and are nonrefundable.
The purchaser and DJ agree that this contract is not subject to cancellation unless both parties have agreed to such cancellation in writing. In the event the Client breaches the contract, he or she shall pay the DJ the full contract value.
It is understood that this is a "Rain or Shine" event, and DJs compensation is in no way affected by inclement weather. For outdoor
performances, Client shall provide overhead shelter for setup area. The DJ reserves the right, in good faith, to stop or cancel the performance should the weather pose a potential danger to him, the equipment, or audience. Every effort will be made to continue the performance.
However, safety is paramount in all decisions. The DJ's compensation will not be affected by such cancellation.
It is hereby further agreed; that the Client shall be held liable for any injury or damages to the DJ, or property of the DJ, while on the premises of said engagement, if damage is caused by Client or guest, members of his organization, engagement invitees, employees, or any other party in attendance, whether invited or not.
In the event Clients determine that a postponement of the wedding/event is necessary due to Covid-19 health concerns, Clients must Notify Maui DJ Services within (30) days of the original wedding/event date. Maui DJ Services will allow Clients to reschedule the wedding/event one (1) time within an (18) month period of the original wedding/event date without a rescheduling fee or changes to the originally confirmed pricing. The retainer and all other payments made by Clients up to the date of rescheduling due to Covid-19 are non-refundable and will transfer over to the rescheduled wedding/event date. The final 50% remainder due by Clients under this Agreement will be moved to (30) days prior to the new rescheduled wedding/event date . Clients understand and agree that it is their responsibility to work with Maui DJ Services to find a mutually agreeable rescheduled date. Maui DJ Services will give Clients first choice of all available dates on its calendar within the (18) month period.
If Clients determine not to reschedule and cancel the wedding/event altogether, or choose a new wedding/event date that Maui DJ Services is not available for, the retainer and all other payments made by Clients are still non-refundable, such payments will be credited to Clients’ account, and credit may be used for any type of services offered by Maui DJ Services within (12) months from the date of cancellation. Should Clients fail to Notify Maui DJ Services of any postponement or cancellation within (30) days of the original wedding/event date, Clients forfeit the retainer and all fees paid.
After the first courtesy postponement, in the event Clients reschedule the wedding/event again, a rescheduling fee of $500.00 will apply for each subsequent postponement thereafter and Maui DJ Services reserves the right to increase its package pricing.
This clause supersedes all other clauses under this Agreement for Covid-19 related postponements and cancellations only.
