6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

DJ Invoice Template
Use this DJ invoice now for free

It’s remarkable how much the public perception regarding DJs, the services they offer, and the industry they work in has changed in the recent past. In years gone by, you would be more likely to lose interest when talking to somebody who says he works as a DJ. Today, you would be more interested in hanging out with such a person based on the influence they have.

DJs are more likely to get access to the best social and corporate events:

  • They are fun to be around.
  • They play music, have the best equipment, and can access celebrities easily.
  • On top of all that, they get paid handsomely and usually get a constant supply of DJ invoice templates.

The pay they get is based on the DJ invoice they write.

Just like any other freelancer, a DJ needs to work with an invoice for them to get their payment on time. As you carry out the tasks assigned by the client, you expect them to pay you once you complete the DJ contract. In most cases, your client will be busy working on other things, and the last thing would want is to have issues during payment. You can only make the payment process simpler for them by having a detailed DJ Invoice in place.

We already have DJ invoice templates and samples online, and so, writing one shouldn’t be a problem. All you need is to go through the structure and design one for your freelance business. However, it’s not just about borrowing the format and leaving it at that. You need to design one that speaks a lot about your brand. Apart from using the DJ invoice to get payment, you can use it to market your brand as a freelancer.  By including things like your company logo and theme, you speak volumes about your brand. What’s more? A DJ invoice makes your client to hold you in high regard, and, therefore, they’ll always deliver your payment on time.

The invoice serves various purposes in the DJ’s career and business, as you would see below.

1. The DJ invoice template is a proof of professionalism

DJs are creative professionals. They are not amateurs. They take their craft seriously. Clients have to pay DJs for services rendered. These professionals take their time to study to be among the best. They excel at what they do. They invest in the best equipment to avoid disappointing their clients. They have to be up to speed with the latest trends in the industry. In addition to all that, they also have to familiarize themselves with the latest music and songs. They are masters in various genres. For this reason, they expect payment from all services offered and on time. No DJ would like to deal with delayed payment after putting in so much in the day.

For the most part, the freelancing skills they bring to the table require payments in advance, which is only possible with a DJ invoice template. While a DJ’s work is all fun, it’s equally as serious as the roles of a web designer. As such, the client too needs to take the DJ’s work seriously.

Well, the client already values the services offered by the DJ, so it’s up to the DJ to show their professionalism in what they do. While this is best shown by how you carry out the job, having a detailed DJ invoice adds a lot more to this. It shows you’d like to be paid for what you offer. The DJ invoice isn’t just about the amount you’d like your client to deposit in your account after work, but it also specifies when you need the payment done.

As such, there’s no room for delayed payments as it’s all clear to the client by when they should deposit the cash to your account. Apart from specifying the payment deadline, things like your company logo and theme markets your brand to the clients as it highlights your professionalism.    

2. The DJ invoice template takes careers to the next level

All DJs are ambitious. It’s a fact that most freelancers have huge dreams. They want to accomplish quite a lot. They are not limited in terms of dreams like would be the case to anybody working a 9-to-5 job, which continues to see a massive drop in popularity these days. For that to happen though, the DJs have to demonstrate their willingness to grow. The willingness is not as impossible to display as many of them think. One effective way of proving it is by preparing DJ invoice template regularly. Here, consistency is a necessity. Without it, this entertainer’s career or business would remain stagnant.

While most DJ freelancers think that they need a DJ invoice for the sake of the client, as a freelancer, the invoice plays an important role in helping your business grow. Well, it’s true the information in the invoice is mostly useful to the client , but you too need to keep track your cash flows. By monitoring how much you earn every month or in a week, you’ll be able to see whether you’re doing well as a freelance DJ, or something needs to be done. In case you feel you’re not making enough money, you could decide to expand your services to increase your cash flows.

In addition to this, you can sharpen your DJ skills to show your client that you can offer more on top of the normal services you render. As such, they can entrust you with more projects, and this will not only increase your income but also boost your freelance business.  

So, make it a habit to prepare a DJ invoice template from time to time if at all you’d like to take your freelancing career to the next level. And don’t just do a basic invoice that will only get cash into your pocket, make sure you can get much more from the invoice you design.

3. Improve cash flow with your DJ invoice

Who said the DJ doesn’t need any cash flow? Whoever said that is probably not familiar with the kind of business these professionals run. For the most part, the DJs need anything between $3,000 and $10,000 to start their business. The amount could be higher depending on the equipment each DJ believes to be essential for offering topnotch services. In addition to that, the DJ needs to renew all the necessary licenses and other documentation. Some of these other documents that could be a one-off or require renewing from time to time include tax registration certificate, Amplified Music permit, and local business permit among others.

The DJ would never be able to stay afloat without all these documents.

More importantly, the DJ requires the cash flow generated via DJ invoice template to pay for all these.

In addition to all that, he also needs:

  • Tons of music
  • Marketing Aids
  • Insurance
  • Vehicle
  • Equipment

How else can a DJ achieve all these he doesn’t have a robust income. With all these requirements, no DJ business would survive if the DJ is underpaid. That’s why the DJ has to be really clear on what he or she expects the client to pay for the services they offer. Usually, the amount indicated in the DJ invoice includes all the cost plus the profit the DJ is meant to make in the end. However, it’s the responsibility of the DJ to make sure the fees they set for their services ensures they get something on top. That is, it shouldn’t just take care of the capital you’ve invested in making the work a success.

A DJ is a consultant in the arena of entertainment. A DJ invoice – prepared in advance and awaiting filling with all the relevant details – is essential for ensuring the consultancy continues benefiting more people. The DJ invoice template is a form of recognition of the quality services the entertainer offers. It also helps the business to grow, which then means more people can access these services and benefit from quality entertainment. The DJ invoice only works if it has all the information. Contact details, items on each line, invoice number, services rendered, the date when the services were offered, and date when the invoice was prepared must all be present.

Leaving out such important details may compromise the payment process. For instance, if you fail to include the dates when the services were rendered, you may end up disagreeing with your client in case they can’t just remember whether you did the job or not. Only a DJ invoice template with clearly outlined dates can save you in such a situation. So, make sure your DJ invoice has all the nitty-gritty that a good invoice should have. If you aren’t sure of everything you should include, you can borrow ideas from some of the DJ invoice samples available online.

4. Clarify what clients pay for in your DJ invoice sample

A good DJ invoice should list out the price and the scope of work. We’ve had cases whereby a DJ offered services that the client isn’t willing to pay simply because it wasn’t clear from the onset whether they should pay for them. While you might have discussed this before signing the performance contract, make sure it’s also included in the invoice. If you’re being paid hourly for the services you offer, make sure you break it down in the invoice to avoid instances of low pay. Remember, your client has lots of work to do, and spending hours upon hours trying to understand your invoice is the last thing they’d want to do. So, make it easier for them by including all the services you’d want them to pay for.

You might have used a DJ invoice template to design one for yourself, but make sure you customize it to your business needs. Know the scope of your services and have them well outlined in the invoice. You want to retain the job, therefore, at all costs, make sure the client is happy.

5. The DJ invoice example is great for record keeping

Every freelancer needs to keep track of their income, and the DJ is no exception. As a freelance DJ, you need to know what’s trickling in and out of your account. How else can you grow if you don’t monitor your progress? With a DJ invoice, you have it all under your control. You can track your income, monitor your outflows, and your business’ profitability. It helps you to accurately keep track of your cash flows including your expenditure. Additionally, by helping you to know how much the client owes you, you’re able to plan ahead. You’ll not have instances whereby your expenditure exceeds your income as you always know what’s left in your account.

Would you like to take your business to another level as a freelance DJ? Well, it’s time to work with a DJ invoice template.
