We do offer written contracts. Written contracts protect our clients and CNT Entertainment as well. Along with aiding to minimize disputes and resolve any problems that may arise; a contract will communicate to a client, not only the amount that they are required to pay, but also invoice and payment dates. … Written contracts set out the rights and obligations of each party and reduce the risk of uncertainty.
We always meet with our clients no matter what event. In order to achieve a successful event, communication is key. The initial meeting is so essential. It puts the face to the voice and starts the relationship. Some vendors are great on the phone, but not so much in person 🙂 Weddings are especially important. You will spend so much time with all your vendors. It is so important that you like and feel comfortable with them from day one.
Client Cancellations must be made in writing and received by CNT 60 days prior to the date of the event. Cancellations that are received with less than 60 days before the contracted event will be considered outstanding, payable and due in full immediately, If a contract is cancelled by the Client any and all fees paid to CNT are non-refundable and will be retained by CNT for loss of employment on the contracted date.
We typically can hold your date for 7 days after our initial consultation if you don’t book then. When you decide to move forward, a contract is then emailed to you and you will have to sign and included the agreed deposit. Once received, your date is now reserved or booked.
When you decide to use our company, you will get access to our online planner. You will be able to plan every aspect of your event and have access to our music database. You can listen to all the music and add it to our requests area.
In our online planning system, there is a section call “ADD YOUR OWN MUSIC”. Or if it’s easier, just text or email the songs you would like played. Some clients even send over their Spotify lists.
We typically try to sit down and review all events 4 weeks prior to the event date. Part of our meeting is to review everything pertaining to your event, including the final playlist.
Requests are up to you. If it’s a hard “NO”, then we don’t take requests from guests. If the clients say it’s “OK”, then we use are judgement on the requests to make sure they align with the client’s goals for the event.
Unlike some companies, all our DJs are trained MCs as well. You never know when an announcement will be needed. It is very important that your DJ/MC can effectively communicate with all your guests. Wedding especially need A DJ that can MC. As MCs, we are responsible in hosting your wedding, announcing the intro’s, special dances and many other announcements as well. Can you imagine if they weren’t able to accomplish that. We suggest to always ask to see videos of the different aspects of a wedding. Especially if you never saw that DJ in action.
