Signing and returning our Booking Confirmation form enters clients into a legally binding contract subject to our non-negotiable terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are as follows:

Cancellation can only be accepted with written notice provided by the client to Celtic Rouge Band. Emails are an acceptable form of written communication.
In the extremely unlikely event of Celtic Rouge Band cancelling the agreement, the band shall inform the client immediately.
Celtic Rouge Band, working together with Tartan Wedding Bands Ltd will endeavor to offer the client an alternative entertainer of similar size, style and cost. We will make all reasonable attempts to provide a suitable replacement. Should a suitable replacement not be found or the replacement not be acceptable to the client, Celtic Rouge Band agrees to refund the client the deposit and any further fees already paid by the client.
Celtic Rouge Band requires private clients to pay a deposit when booking entertainment for weddings, private functions etc. This deposit is non refundable unless the agreement is cancelled by Celtic Rouge Band.
Celtic Rouge Band must receive deposits in full before we can accept a contractual agreement with the client.
The final balance fee for any private engagement must be paid to Celtic Rouge Band via electronic bank transfer within 7 days of the event. Cheques are regretfully not accepted. Failure to pay the complete balance prior to the start of the event will result in Celtic Rouge Band's refusal to perform.
Changes to Agreement
Should the client choose to change the venue or date of their event, Celtic Rouge Band will endeavor to accommodate the changes, however if the band is unavailable on the new proposed or deem the new venue unsuitable, the booking will be cancelled and the cancellation terms will apply.
Venue changes which are accepted by Celtic Rouge Band may sometimes incur additional travel expenses which will be added to the original agreed fee.
Celtic Rouge Band performs standard set times as set out by the Musicians Union. For evening receptions and functions these hours are normally:
8pm - Midnight with a 40-minute break.
Please note that contracted start times are based on the band having access to the performance area approx. 1 hour before the contracted start time. Please note that the band are not responsible for hotel overruns and are not obliged to play beyond the contracted finish time.
Extensions to the standard set times are by agreement only and will incur additional fees.
Use of Deputy Performers
Celtic Rouge Band will endeavour to perform using their standard group of performers as advertised to the client. However given the high number of engagements the band perform at each year, the band reserves the right to use deputy performers that are of the same standard and professional competence as the original performer. The deputy performer will have good knowledge of the band's set list and represent the band to the same high standard expected by the client. Deputy performers will be well rehearsed and experienced.
