Equipment

You will be supplied all necessary equipment to do the gig, you will however be expected to look after the equipment, any damage caused through normal wear and tear will be picked up by Raven Entertainment. However if you manage to drop, lose, blow up PA or have something stolen then YOU will be expected to pay for any repairs, or replacement. Normal wear and tear items are light globes, speaker/microphone leads, microphones.

Availability

Unfortunately, calling to say you now have another commitment after you have confirmed your availability is NOT looked upon very well.  There are generally no back up DJ’s available. Once you commit to a show you will be expected to do the show, if you cannot be generally available to commit or say yes when you mean no, then you are not the type of person required for these positions and need not apply.

Payment

Pay rates will be negotiated on your experience.

Payment are made via Electronic Bank Transfer AFTER the gig, which provides time to check with the venue that everything went well plus time to access that no equipment was damaged.
