    1. The Client warrants all Venue details given are correct as per the booking form.

    4. Adjustment of the volume and sound level of any equipment shall be as the Client or Venue reasonably requires. The Client is responsible for checking with their Venue if a sound limiter is fitted and what effect this may have on their event. Should the presence of a sound limiter prevent the DJ from performing or detract from the DJ’s performance in any way, the DJ cannot be held responsible. If, in the view of the DJ, the operation of the sound limiter poses a risk to our equipment, we reserve the right to end the performance without penalty.
    5. The DJ or Mrs R's Retro Roadshow will under no circumstances be held responsible if the Venue is found to be in breach of the terms of their licence.

    4. The Client is responsible for the provision of a suitable and safe electricity supply, with a minimum of two 13A mains sockets no further than 5m from the staging area.
