Terms of Business. Entertainment. 

1) Enthusiasm Events will act as a Entertainment Business at its sole discretion. The way in which Enthusiasm Events is acting for each booking is available to view through the appropriate website link identified in documentation or confirmation correspondence issued.

2) Entertainment. 

a) Enthusiasm Events acts as negotiator only and is not a party to any resulting booking or contract. For this reason Enthusiasm Events cannot accept responsibility for non-fulfillment or breach of any such contract, but every reasonable safeguard is assured. Wherever possible in such cases, Enthusiasm Events will replace the act or engagement where possible. In the event of circumstances out with their control, entertainers may substitute a regular member of the band or act with a competent stand in without notice or compensation.

b) Enthusiasm Events seeks to negotiate agreements for The Artiste in those branches of the entertainment field for which The Artiste is suited by reason of his talent and ability.

c) For the provision of this service Enthusiasm Events charges a variable fee based on the nature of each individual booking.

d) The Fee (commission) is charged only after the provision of the service has been completed. Therefore there is no provision for a refund of commission in any circumstances.

e) Where charged to The Artiste, the fee will still be due if the artiste fails to appear, said non-appearance being as a result of any action or inaction of The Artiste. In order to ensure that there are no non-appearances or let downs, all verbal agreements are confirmed by e-mail.  In the event of very short notice bookings, the e-mail may be sent after the event for your records. All verbal agreements will remain in force.

f) Where charged to the Client the fee (commission) is normally payable post event and is always non-refundable.

If at any time Enthusiasm Events is authorised to enter into agreements on behalf of the Artiste or the Client for any individual booking, such authority will be made known to both parties during the negotiation.

i) Enthusiasm Events may receive fees due to the Artiste (for example dispute resolution) but must account to the Artiste for any such payments that it receives.

j) Agreements are made separately for each booking, and there is no requirement for any Artiste to accept any booking offered. The Artiste can therefore end the relationship by simply not accepting any further bookings and the Agent can end the relationship by not offering any such bookings.

k) If any Artiste seeking representation under a normal non-exclusive agency representation agreement should wish to cease being represented by Enthusiasm Events and have their name and details removed from any promotional materials issued they can give a minimum of 60 days notice via e-mail.

3) The Artiste will be required to honour any and all bookings negotiated and accepted prior to the expiry of such written notice.

7) In order to ensure that there are no non-appearances or let downs, all verbal agreements with The Artiste are confirmed either by written or electronic mailing agreement.

8) The display and / or presentation of any artiste’s address and / or telephone number at an engagement negotiated through Enthusiasm Events shall be regarded as a breach of agreement, and may render the Artiste liable to pay damages in respect of that breach.

9) Any agreements negotiated through Enthusiasm Events shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions unless otherwise agreed in writing or e-mail between all concerned parties. The agreed variable fee forms part of these Terms and Conditions, and construed as such.
