The Buff Entertainment Service Agreement Terms

e-Signature: By Clicking "I AGREE", You are agreeing to the terms, provisions, conditions and pricing listed on the electronic agreement that you will receive from us after completing this booking form.

Entertainment Agreement
This Agreement is for entertainment services for the event described on the booking form you completed above, between the purchaser of entertainment (Client) and The Buff doing business at 16722 198th Ave., Big Lake, MN 55309.   The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) agree to furnish services to the specifications included on the booking form/final agreement and Client:

Payment: (Cash, Check, or Credit Card) Make checks payable to The Buff. ($20 fee for returned checks)

To Confirm the Agreement: You must be 18yrs. or older to sign the agreement. A PDF (or a printed copy) of the agreement will be sent to you after you complete this booking form if requested.

Cancellation: This Agreement cannot be cancelled or modified except in writing by either the Client or The Buff. If Client initiates cancellation less than 60 days prior to the event, then the Client is responsible for the total due the day of event. Rescheduling for events canceled due to inclement weather shall be accommodated without penalty whenever possible. Rescheduled events are subject to availability.

Provisions: The Client shall ensure that: (1) reasonable steps will be taken to protect The Buff’s equipment, personnel, music, and crowd control will be provided if warranted; (2) for outdoor performances, shelter will be provided that completely covers and protects The Buff’s equipment and personnel from adverse weather conditions. Client accepts full responsibility and is liable for any damages, injuries, or delays that occur as a result of failure to comply with these provisions. In the event of circumstances deemed by The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors), equipment, or recordings, then The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) reserve the right to cease performance until such time as Client resolves the threatening situation. The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) further reserves the right to deny any guest access to recordings or equipment. In the unlikely event the DJ’s or/and The Buff Representatives performance is delayed, liability is limited to providing Client with performance time equal to time lacking.

This Entertainment Agreement supercedes all others for the event date entered in the booking form and is subject to the laws of the State of Minnesota. (The Client e-signs the booking form on behalf of themselves or their company.)

By typing your name in the "Signature" field, you are waiving the need for a physical agreement and physical signature on both parties behalf (The Buff and yourself). e-Signing acts as a legal binding signature and is as legit at a physical signature.

 

Additional Terms, Provisions & Conditions:
The Buff and contractors provide backup equipment in case of equipment failure, however, The Buff cannot guarantee that all equipment will work at performance time. The Buff cannot provide backup equipment for every piece of equipment and cannot guarantee that the backup equipment is functioning properly since it cannot be tested before every show. The Buff will not be held reliable if any piece of equipment fails during any performance or at any time during the performance. For example: if our cordless microphone system fails, we most likely do not have long enough cords to provide a corded microphone in the area where the cordless microphone was being used, thus if the cordless microphone malfunctions, the event may have to go without a microphone unless the person(s) using the microphone use a backup corded microphone that is close to the DJ system.

The Buff has a “no drop” policy. All staff and equipment must always be protected from inclement weather with proper shelter to protect from rain, wind and other elements. If proper shelter is not provided, Client shall be responsible to cover all incurred expenses and damages. Water, moisture, wind and other weather conditions can permanently damage the equipment and in-turn we would not have any equipment to use the rest of the show/event.

If proper shelter cannot or is not provide and it starts to even drip or precipitation falls, the equipment will be taken down or moved to keep it protected from the elements. This is the case regardless of what the situation is... middle of a ceremony, first dance, etc.

VERY rarely does any issues or problems with sound equipment occur.  The Buff has never been unable to complete a show.  The DJ systems are designed so that they can continue to be used even is something quits working.  If something like an act of god happens (it never has) and something causes damage to all of gear, The Buff has no way to back that up.

Microphone failure practically never happens, but like every single electronic item on the planet, it will fail or quit working at some point.  A backup mic is always available, but if the cordless mic is being used, and it quits working or is not working properly, in most cases the event will have to continue as is or without a microphone.  Cables often times cannot be ran far enough in most cases to replace the cordless mic with the backup corded mic.

The Buff service providers and contractors plan to arrive about 1 hour before the event to setup equipment if necessary. Should traffic, emergencies or any other conflict keeps The Buff or contractor from arriving on time, The Buff reliable or at fault. The Buff will provide performance time equal to the amount lacking do to any delays of this nature.

The Buff shall attempt to play Clients and Clients guests music requests but shall not be held responsible if certain selections are unavailable. The Buff will make an extra effort to have music requests available if they are received at least three days before the event.

The Client shall provide one six-foot table (skirted and covered to match guest tables if possible) and one nearby electrical outlet. Client shall provide The Buff with safe and appropriate working conditions. This includes a sufficient area for setting up, dj box, speakers and lighting stands. The Buff requires a minimum of one 15-20-amp circuit outlet from a reliable power source within 25 feet 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 or The Buff's equipment due to improper power is the responsibility of the Client. (Two circuits are preferred, where possible.)

In the event of circumstances deemed to present a threat or implied threat of injury or harm to The Buff staff (contractor) or any equipment in The Buff possession, The Buff reserves the right to cease performance. If the Client is able to resolve the threatening situation in a reasonable amount of time (maximum of 15 minutes), The Buff shall resume performance in accordance with the original terms of this agreement. Client shall be responsible for payment in full, regardless of whether the situation is resolved or whether The Buff resumes performance. If the full amount of performance time is not used at the event, Client forfeits any pay or performance time agreed upon in this contract.

The Buff uses and maintains high quality, however in the unlikely event that time is lost due to equipment malfunction, The Buff will refund the portion of the total amount corresponding to the time lost. This is the extent of The Buff’s liability.

The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) performing for the Client may be an independent contractor and not an employee of The Buff. The Client acknowledges that The Buff may arrange for other independent contractors to cover their event. Client acknowledges that The Buff will not be responsible for any negligence caused by an independent contractor.

The Client acknowledges that The Buff may need to use an associate disc jockey as a substitute for the contracted The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) (written above) should a situation that dictates this arises (e.g., emergency, etc.).

The Client is responsible for damages resulting from the conduct of all persons attending the event, including any damage to The Buff’s equipment.

The Client shall be liable for any and all costs, including collection fees resulting in an “insufficient funds” check and reasonable attorney’s fees and costs incurred in enforcing this contract.

In the event of non-payment, The Buff 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 The Buff.

No performance on the engagement shall be recorded, reproduced, or transmitted from the place of performance, in any manner, or any means whatsoever, without the expressed, written consent of The Buff. Pictures and videotape of the event are permitted for the private use of the contracting party only.

The agreement of the The Buff Representatives (personnel, service providers and contractors) to perform is subject to proven detention by accidents, riots, strikes, epidemics, acts of God, or any other legitimate conditions beyond their control. If such circumstances arise, all reasonable efforts will be made by The Buff to find replacement entertainment at the agreed upon fees. Should The Buff be unable to procure a replacement, Client shall receive a full refund. Client agrees that in all circumstances, The Buff liability shall be exclusively limited to an amount equal to the performance fee and that The Buff shall not be liable for indirect or consequential damages arising from any breach of contract.

By executing this contract as Client, the person executing said contract (agreement), either individually, or as an agent or representative, represents and warrants that he or she is eighteen (18) years of age, and further, if executing said contract as agent or representative, that he or she has the authority to enter into this agreement and should he or she not have such authority, he or she personally accepts and assumes full responsibility and liability under the terms of this contract.

The laws of the State of Minnesota shall govern this agreement. Client agrees to defend, indemnify, assume liability for and hold The Buff harmless from any claims, damages, losses and expenses by or to any person, regardless of the basis, which pertains directly or indirectly to The Buff's performance. In the event that a civil action arises in an effort to enforce any provision of this agreement, the losing party shall pay the attorney's fee and court costs of the prevailing party. Client may not transfer this contract to another party without the prior written consent of The Buff.

Model/Guest Release:  Client agrees to, and understands the following: All guests using the photographer hereby give to The Buff the right and permission to copyright and use, photographic portraits or pictures of any photographer user who may be included intact or in part, made through any and all media now or hereafter known for illustration, art, promotion, advertising, trade, or any other purpose. PHOTOS WILL NOT BE SOLD OR LICENSED TO ANY STOCK PHOTO OR GIVEN TO ANYONE ELSE WITHOUT PERMISSION. The intent here is to allow the Provider to use photos in promotional materials such as the business website, flyers, business cards, and other such media. It is also to allow the Provider the ability to offer a website where additional copies of the photos can be purchased by the Client and guests. In addition I, hereby release, discharge and agree to save harmless The Buff from any liability that may occur or be produced in the taking of said picture or in any subsequent processing thereof, as well as any publication thereof, including without limitation any claims for libel or invasion of privacy.

Exclusive Photographer / DJ / Performer: The Buff shall be the exclusive professional Photographer / DJ /Performer during the event, if Client booked The Buff for that particular service. Family and friends of the Client shall be permitted to photograph and record the event as long as they do not interfere with The Buff’s duties.

If the event is cancelled for any reason and a thirty (30) day notice was not provided by the Client, the Client will be responsible for the total fee indicated on this agreement. Cancellations caused by severe weather on the day of the event, or if roads and businesses are widely closed in the area on the day of the event, Client will be allowed to reschedule without penalty subject to The Buff’s availability on the new date of event.

Delay or Default: The Buff shall not be liable for any delays or defaults in the performance of any obligations hereunder if such delay or default is due to acts of God, weather, fires, floods, traffic, or any other cause beyond the control or without fault of The Buff.

Requested Photos: While The Buff will make every reasonable effort to take photos specifically requested by the Client. Client understands that most events and guests can’t be completely controlled and that due the vagaries of the weather, available light, and willingness of subjects, The Buff cannot possibly guarantee that any particular requested photo will be taken.

Copyright and Reproductions: The Buff shall own the copyright in/for all images created and shall have the exclusive right to make reproductions. The Buff reserves the right to use photographs for display, advertising, posting to any of it’s web sites or other purposes. However, the Client has an unlimited non-commercial licence for the use and distribution of the images and will be provided a photo release upon request.

Client’s Usage: The Client may obtain prints and digital copies for personal use only, and shall not sell the photographs. If Client is obtaining a photograph for newspaper announcement of the event, editorial use or web site, The Buff authorizes Client to reproduce the print in this manner. In such event, Client shall run a credit for the The Buff adjacent to the photograph.

Inherent Qualities: Client is aware that color dyes in photography may fade or discolor over time due to the inherent qualities of dyes as well as DVD or CD media which may deteriorate due to delamination and oxidation, and Client releases The Buff from any liability for any claims whatsoever based upon the deterioration due to such inherent qualities.

Other Terms & Conditions: This Agreement incorporates the entire understanding of the parties. Any modifications of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. Any waiver of a breach or default hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver of a subsequent breach or default of either the same provision or any other provision of this Agreement. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota.

The Buff provides backup equipment when possible, however, The Buff cannot guarantee that all equipment will work at performance time. The Buff cannot provide backup equipment for every piece of equipment and cannot guarantee that the backup equipment is functioning properly since we simply cannot test it before every show. The Buff will not be held reliable if any piece of equipment fails during any performance or at any time during the performance. For example: if our cordless microphone system fails, we most likely do not have long enough cords to provide a corded microphone in the area where the cordless microphone was being used, thus if the cordless microphone malfunctions, the event will have to go without a microphone. A corded microphone can be setup for the remainder of the event, but it typically can’t be substituted quickly. So if the microphone fails during a ceremony, the ceremony will have to continue without a microphone.

The Buff has a “no drop” policy. All staff and equipment must always be protected from inclement weather with proper shelter to protect from rain, wind and other elements. If proper shelter is not provided, Client shall be responsible to cover all incurred expenses and damages. Water, moisture, wind and other weather conditions can permanently damage the equipment and in-turn we would not have any equipment to use the rest of the show/event.

If proper shelter cannot or is not provide and it starts to even drip or precipitation falls, the equipment will be taken down or moved to keep it protected from the elements. This is the case regardless of what the situation is... middle of a ceremony, first dance, etc.

What Are Electronic agreements and Electronic Signatures?

An electronic agreement is an agreement created and "signed" in electronic form -- in other words, no paper or other hard copies are used. For example, you write an agreement on your computer and email it to a business associate, and the business associate emails it back with an electronic signature indicating acceptance. An e-agreement can also be in the form of a "Click to Agree" agreement, commonly used with downloaded software: The user clicks an "I Agree" button on a page containing the terms of the software license before the transaction can be completed.

Since a traditional ink signature isn't possible on an electronic agreement, people use several different ways to indicate their electronic signatures, including typing the signer's name into the signature area, pasting in a scanned version of the signer's signature, clicking an "I Accept" button, or using cryptographic "scrambling" technology.

Though lots of people use the term "digital signature" for any of these methods, it's becoming standard to reserve the term "digital signature" for cryptographic signature methods and to use "electronic signature" for other paperless signature methods.

In order to complete the booking process, you MUST agree to the above terms by clicking I Agree and e-signing below.
