This surcharge together with all other charges and legal fees incurred will be the responsibility of the Client and will be legally enforceable. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure their venue can accommodate the Artiste and cancellation of the Booking or non-performance of the Artiste due to venue restrictions will place the Client liable for Cancellation fees as detailed above.

iv. Cancellation by the Artiste:

a) In the unlikely event that the Artiste cancels the Booking, the Artiste agrees to inform JoJoFun immediately. JoJoFun agrees to inform the Client of the cancellation by the Artiste as soon as reasonably possible and make all reasonable attempts to find a suitable replacement Artiste of similar standard, style & value, at no extra cost to the Client. Should a suitable replacement not be found, JoJoFun agrees to refund the Client all Fees paid for the Booking.b) Should the Artiste cancel a Booking under circumstances not covered by ‘Force Majeure’ (see clause 25), the Client is entitled to pursue damages from the Artiste.

c) Should the Artiste cancel a Booking, the Artiste agrees to pay to JoJoFun:

c.i. An administration fee for handling the cancellation by the Artiste, the amount of which is determined by JoJoFun, and this must be paid to JoJoFun within seven (7) working days from the date of cancellation; and

c.ii Any difference between the balance of the Contract and the fees charged by any replacement Artiste arranged for the Client by JoJoFun.

d) There will be no refund given to the Client against the Fees paid, and no ‘administration charge’ will be made to the Artiste if a replacement Artiste of similar value can be arranged by JoJoFun and agreed by the Client. However, should a replacement Artiste charge a much lower fee, the Client will be refunded a proportionate amount of their total Fees. Where reasonably possible, the Client and Artiste will be contacted to agree this in advance.

e) If a replacement Artiste is required last minute and the Client does not agree to accept the replacement Artiste, the Client must not allow the replacement Artiste to perform. If the replacement Artiste is allowed to perform by the Client, the full Fees will be due.

  • The remainder of the booking fee will be held as credit by JoJoFun for a new event date which will be set by mutual agreement between the Client and JoJoFun.
  • The credit will expire after 12 months from the date the postponement was made.  If a lockdown is in place in 12 months time, then the expiration date will be extended another 6 months.
  • The Client is entitled to claim the credit any time within this 12-month period to secure a Booking for a date within or after the period.
  • A Booking is secured by payment of the remaining balance due after the credit has been used for the entertainment services booked for the new event.
  • If cancellation is chosen by the Client instead of the postponement terms indicated above, then regular cancellation terms will apply as described in section 8 of the Terms.
  • Pandemic-related postponements and cancellations made within forty eight (48) hours before the event date will result in a cancellation charge of 100% of the total Fees; the Client shall pay the Fees to JoJoFun in full.

10. Late payment of the Fees

i. Failure by the Client to pay the Fees due within the terms specified will result in the Client being in default of Contract. As a result, the Booking may be cancelled and the Client will be bound by the cancellation clauses in section 8 of these Terms.

This surcharge together with all other charges and legal fees incurred will be the responsibility of the Client and will be legally enforceable. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure their venue can accommodate the Artiste and cancellation of the Booking or non-performance of the Artiste due to venue restrictions will place the Client liable for cancellation fees as detailed above.

iv. Any payment outstanding from the Artiste outside of these Terms will be referred to a debt collection agency and will be subject to a surcharge of 15% plus HST to cover collection costs incurred, unless stated otherwise by the applicable law. This surcharge together with all other charges and legal fees incurred will be the responsibility of the Artiste and will be legally enforceable.

If through their own fault the Artiste is unable to fulfill part of the event schedule or breaks the terms of the Contract and the Client would like to claim a reduction on the Fees, a complaint must be made in writing to JoJoFun no more than thirty (30) calendar days after the event. JoJoFun will handle the complaint in its own discretion. Full payment of the Fees must still be made as agreed in the Contract. The Client shall not withhold payment of the Fees. Failure to pay the Fees within the terms of this Contract will incur charges outlined in clause 7 of the Terms and may render the Client subject to prosecution. Whilst JoJoFun cannot be held responsible for the actions or failures of either the Client or the Artiste, JoJoFun will make every effort to settle disputes without the need for either party to take legal action against each other. Once the Client has made a written complaint, JoJoFun will contact the Artiste to discuss the complaint and request a written statement detailing their version of events. JoJoFun will act as mediator between Client and Artiste in order to come to an amicable agreement over any refund or expense which may be due. If JoJoFun cannot settle the dispute to the mutual satisfaction of both Client and Artiste, both parties must settle the matter directly via their own legal representatives. Any dispute between the Client and the Artiste based on changes to the Contract/performance that were agreed by both the Client and the Artiste, but not confirmed by JoJoFun in writing, must be settled between the Client and the Artiste directly. JoJoFun will not be able to mediate over these agreements or changes.

15. Changes on the day of the event

i. Where possible, changes to the Contract schedule that are unavoidable on the day of the event should first be discussed & agreed with JoJoFun. Should this not be possible, changes are to be agreed between the Client and the Artiste prior to performance. Any changes will be subject to these Terms.

The Client will not be due a refund of any amount from JoJoFun under these conditions.

16. Delayed event schedules and late finish fees

i. If due to the late running of or alterations to the event schedule which is no fault of the Artiste, the Artiste is not able to perform their full performance time within the schedule outlined in the Contract, there will be no reduction in the Fees payable by the Client.

ii. If the event runs late and the Artiste is asked and agrees to finish later than the finish time in the Contract, and the Artiste does not agree an additional surcharge, then the following standard ‘late finish’ fees will be charged: 10% of the total Fees due per ½ hour over run, payable on the day of the event by the Client to the Artiste in cash or by cheque.
