Additional Booking Notes
• A safe and adequate space for the performer shall be provided. This includes a floor or stage that is free of broken glass, spilled liquids, or other hazardous objects. This also includes an environment that is free of harassment of a sexual nature or otherwise. If the performer deems the environment unsafe for the above reasons, they may leave without rendering services. In that case, the client will still be responsible for paying the full amount. In all of my years, performing for these parties, I have never had an issue with this. I do not see this being a problem.
• A sound system with CD or other electronic playing capabilities shall be provided, preferably in the same room in which the performance is to take place. The sound system is an important part of the show and should be tested prior to the arrival of the performer.
• The client shall communicate any special suggestions or requests prior to the beginning of the performance. The performance has been carefully choreographed and it is difficult to make changes once the performance has begun. Be assured that, if appropriate, audience participation song(s) will be included.
• Often the performer will have more than one engagement per night, so it is important that the show start at the agreed upon time. If the performer is required to start more than 30 minutes late, an extra charge of $50 will apply. In some cases, lateness may result in a shorter show.
• It is important to pay the performer in a timely manner once services have been rendered. Often for weddings, payment is left with either the wedding planner or DJ so that the bride and groom will not be disturbed with this detail. Please help us to get out the door on time so that we can remain on schedule.
• A private space will be provided for the performer to change clothes and to store their bags while performing.
