- Number of guests
- How many hours of party?
- What spaces will need a soundsystem?
- Among other…
After this first step, we will send to your e-mail a first quote and for your approval you must enter 50% of the total budget amount.
Once we receive the 50% of the total budget amount, the reservation of the indicated day is confirmed. Then we will send an email with our musical catalog and a face-to-face meeting or Skype call to know all your musical tastes and give you musical advice.
We must also call a technical visit to all places where they require sound or lighting. For us, technical visits are key to really adjusting the budget to all needs. Once the technical visit is made, we will have the final budget.
The remaining amount will be paid by bank transfer, as indicated in the estimate, 7 days before the wedding day.
Our technical team is very important to us, without them we can not perform or give the result we give! To be able to adjust in price to the maximum, we must have all the information and know schedules, accesses, etc …
We charge the transport for each van that is necessary and according to the distance where we move, in case of a very large assembly that requires a truck, it will be quoted with more numbers of transports.
To obtain a successful result, we must always be informed of everything related to music, audiovisual, sound and lighting.
It is necessary to warn in advance, since it is an extra service.
We have screens and projectors of different sizes, resolution and lumen.
We always recommend that you send us the video in advance to see that it is in good resolution and the audio is great.
If you decide to bring your laptop, we need a picture of the laptop connectors and make and model, since there are currently many types of connectors.
It is the perfect time to review and annotate some of the following aspects that we indicate below:
- Electricity: current, voltage, power, meters of necessary wiring, we also conduct a study and analyze according to the calculations of the consumptions of the contracted equipment (catering, sound, lighting …) if it is necessary to hire a generator, how many KVA, optimal place, derivation boxes, number of lines…
- Access: We observe, record and photograph all accesses, taking into account the download and loading of material.
- Spaces: We observe, annotate and photograph all the spaces that are going to be used according to the utility, in order to design the placement of all our material.
The technical visit is the most important part of the process, because without a technical visit, we can not close a budget with everything necessary.
Yes, it will be cheaper, although the amount of sound will not be adequate, which there won’t be a good sound cover.
People absorb all kinds of waves and impacts, although a single person absorbs a small percentage, if we put together 100 people, the absorption percentage increases exponentially. This also influences the space, if we are in a room the sound is reflected in the walls, causing a percentage of this bounce in the opposite direction thus increasing its perceptible power, however, if the event is in an open space the Sound disperses in the air until it disappears.
We need to know the number of people, if the sound is going to be indoors or outdoors to calculate how many speakers are needed, what power and how to place.
It mainly depends on these two factors:
- The proximity to the date of the event, whenever we open our mail we answer in chronological order since we get many e-mails daily.
- The complexity of the content of the mail, it is different to answer a budget request than to doubt about the music of an event.
Even so, we try to answer quickly in less than 48 hours, as long as it is not on weekends that we are setting up parties and we do not go through the offcei.
We consider a service contracted at the time that a down payment is paid by bank transfer.
In case of cancellation of contracted services, no refund will be made. Since at the moment that a date is confirmed, we reject the following dates that coincide with it.
In case Quim Clark Productions does not perform the contracted service, the full amount of the money will be returned.
As dictated by the entertainment law, if the performance was in the open air, the scenic space would have to be covered.
On the other hand, the client will have an alternative place where the party can be held in case of bad weather.
Despite of, if the action had to be suspended due to weather conditions, Quim Clark Productions will receive the full amount stipulated in the agreed budget, regardless of whether the party has started or not.
The staff’s allowances are paid by the client of the services as well as the lodging when it is necessary.
Food is equally important for anyone, we always say, that what interests us is eating quantity and fast (something simple) such as a plate of macaroni and meat. Keep in mind, that all the technical team works long hours.
Our lasers are Class 2M, we have different powers, 2.8w, 6w, etc …
Even so, do not worry, because the laser will never give you in the eyes, or you, or any assistant who wants to dance! We will create a previous mask and indicate where the Laser starts and where it ends so that it does not affect the sight.
IMPORTANT! We recommend not raising cameras or mobiles at a higher height than the eyes, since the laser could kill some pixel of the camera and Quim Clark Productions is not responsible of any damage.
Generally, we do not publish photos where faces appear frontally of the assistants, even so, if you do not want any photograph published in our social networks, we request that you write us an e-mail prior to the date of the event claiming your right of privacy.
By law, it is the hotels, rural houses, restaurants, banquet halls and spaces destined to weddings or not destined to the activity of weddings that are obliged to pay a fee to the SGAE. Always, the owner of the establishment has the obligation to pay the SGAE fee.
The owner of the place has the responsibility to be aware that a party is being held on his property and this obliges him to pay the SGAE.
As you can see neither the bride & groom nor the musicians, DJ’s have to worry about paying this fee. In many occasions we see that the responsible ones pass this charge to the couple if the suppliers recommended by the place are not hired … although it is legal, it seems an abuse on the part of the property, knowing the law you can ask that this collection be annulled because it is not your obligation to pay it …
This information is public and you can consult it freely on the website of the association of the General Society of Authors and Publishers. The rates are modified annually according to the CPI.
For weddings in 2018, € 134.06 is charged. This figure covers up to 75 attendees, from 76 to 100 attendees are € 146.46 and will have to add € 0.54 for each additional assistant.
All the prices indicated must be added to the 21% VAT which is a tax established by the Government of Spain. Even so, in the catalogs we already indicated that the prices do not include VAT, just as neither the technical personnel nor the transport are included.
Do not worry, when you contact us and explain how you want your party, we will send you a detailed budget and prices with VAT including personnel prices and transportation will appear.
Yes, bearing in mind that all travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses will be borne by the client of all the personnel necessary to carry out the contracted services.
