Please read the information below which outlines the booking procedure / terms & conditions and answers frequently asked questions. please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.
Most people make an initial contact about dates and prices. This is not a booking. A booking is only confirmed when the booking form & deposit has been received and cleared. All bookings take effect immediately upon receipt of the clients deposit. Payment of deposit by any method is deemed as the client’s acknowledgments and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
Payment of fees
The agreed booking deposit is non refundable and is due strictly within 14 days of initiating the booking. Unless otherwise agreed with LR Disco Entertainment in advance of the event, the balance is payable to the DJ in cash on the day of the event prior to the DJ starting. Clients wishing to pay the outstanding balance by other methods (cash/bank transfer) must ensure that this is agreed with LR Disco Entertainment and that LR Disco Entertainment is in receipt of the full balance 14 working days before the event.
Planning your Event
LR Disco Entertainment works with you to ensure that your event is a success. This would include the client providing a playlist for their event. It is important that this playlist is given to the DJ at least 3 weeks before the event. LR Disco Entertainment values The DJ's working for LR Disco Entertainment pride themselves in the quality of their work. You can expect the event to reflect what is shown on the website, look at some of the pictures & comments of previous events to view what you should expect. The DJ will make every effort to ensure his performance is outstanding. The DJ agrees to provide all equipment required to undertake this performance, unless the equipment has been contractually agreed to be provided by the ‘client’ or a third party. The DJ will not display any conduct deemed anti-social, illegal, nor reflecting badly upon themselves, LR Disco Entertainment or the ‘client’. The adjustment of the volume and sound level of any equipment shall be as the client reasonably requires whilst working under any restraints that the venue may apply.
On the day Timing
The client must ensure 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, distance from unloading area etc. the client agrees to provide assistance with getting all of the DJ’s equipment to and from the required area.
Occasionally it is necessary for the client to change the events schedule. This needs to be discussed and agreed with LR Disco Entertainment beforehand. Any delayed set up time or subsequent delayed start time due to the overrun of any prior proceedings or of situations being outside of LR Disco 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 is occasionally possible. However this will incur an additional fee which must be paid in cash to the DJ before any extra time commences.
LR Disco Entertainment will make every reasonable effort to play the requests given prior to the event. He will also 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.

The client must ensure protection of the DJ’s equipment from adverse weather conditions, where the DJ’s location is not inside a building e.g. gardens, marquees etc. The client will be fully liable for any damage to equipment, caused by adverse weather conditions.
