The terms and conditions below are relevant to both the person who is hiring the entertainment; known as the “client” and the supplier of the entertainment for an event; known as the “artiste”
Best One Entertainment acts as the Employment Agency for an Engagement. Fees are based on a “Fee per performance” basis. We will advise both parties involved; the client and artiste of the arrangements agreed for an event which will include venue location, date of event, relevant contact details, services required and agreed fees. We aim to provide the most detailed arrangements to both parties to ensure a successful event is achieved.
The agency terms and conditions can be found via the homepage on the website and a link to them is provided with all quotations and a copy provided with booking confirmations.
When booking entertainment with our agency, the client needs to pay a deposit beforehand which secures the booking which is non-refundable if the client cancels the event. If the artiste is unable to fulfil their obligation for live entertainment the deposit will be refunded in the first instance.
The fee quoted and arranged in a new booking will be the all inclusive figure and will contain no hidden extras afterwards. As a deposit will have been paid the remaining balance of the fee is to be paid to the artiste on the day of the event preferably in cash. If the client would prefer to pay by cheque to the artist the client must contact the act directly using contact information provided to agree this with the artist.
Once the client has sent the deposit and confirmed by email the booking is then confirmed and secured.
Once the artiste has received the confirmation sheet and replied to confirm it is received they are also secured and committed to perform the booking .
When the client and the artiste has completed the process in the two paragraphs above then the booking process is completed and both parties have entered into a contractual arrangement in which the "offer" was the quotation provided by the agency, a clearly communicated acceptance of the offer received by act and client, finally "consideration" is made by receipt of deposit and acknowledgement by artist and at that point completes booking process.
The client and artiste agree that any future bookings arising from this engagement either directly or indirectly within 12 months of the last performance date on this agreement, shall be negotiated through Best One Entertainment.
Performance Conditions –
The artist is to perform the pre-arranged set times as set out in the confirmation sheet and is not committed to any extra performance times thereafter. If required, additional performance times may be arranged at the discretion of the artiste on the night for an additional fee and must be declared to the agency by the artiste after the event.
Although not an official requirement, it is at the discretion of the client to provide the artiste with light beverages and a sandwich during a booking when they are on a break. If it is a longer engagement perhaps a hot meal may be offered.
