General Information

We don't charge an agency booking fee to promoters and in most cases no VAT (sales tax) either - saving you a whopping 35% over many other agencies rates.

All artists are offered direct from our own roster - that means we have closer control over the artists bookings, travel arrangements, and communication. This of one of the reasons we have a 14-year 100% unbroken artist appearance record worldwide.  To our knowledge no other professional agency can match this.

Unless otherwise stated in the contract the Artist will perform for a maximum 2-hours in the Artists usual manner and/or style.

All enquiries, negotiations, and bookings whether by verbal, written, or electronic means are subject to our terms and conditions of business - by using our services you are agreeing to abide by them.  Please read them carefully before booking. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us - we are here to help you.

We welcome enquiries for provisional bookings.  We can usually hold date options for 5-10 days, but please give our artists the courtesy of letting us know promptly if you no longer wish to take up the date/s, thank you.

Please do not confirm a booking unless are able to pay - we do not offer credit or 'on the night' payment tems . Bookings must be paid for within 10 working days of the Bookers acceptance of booking contract agreement, issue unless specified otherwise in the contract (ie 3 or 7 days for shorter notice events).

The following are a summary of the main booking terms - contract terms vary from artist to artist and take precedence over our standard terms take precedence, please read and check your contract.

Booking Terms

We operate as an "Employment Agency" under the terms of UK employment legislation representing artists for the purposes of contracting them for temporary occasional work with Bookers as performer/s in the entertainment industry.

All bookings or other business agreements are deemed to have been made in England and are subject to English Law.

The Booker is responsible for arranging and paying for, in advance, all international flights, internal travel and hotel accommodation and board and any visas, work permits,licensing and performance permits as required by local law unless otherwise stated in the contract. The Agency will provide the Booker with flight and other travel information - all flight itinerarie smust be approved by the Agency before Booker makes reservation.

Full payment information will be advised on the contract. Payment must be made in GB Pounds free of deduction unless otherwise stated in the agreement by direct deposit into our account by internet or telegraphic transfer via a reputable bank or cable office. Sorry, we do not accept Credit cards, International Money Orders, Western Union, Overseas Cheques, or Bankers Drafts Neither the Agency nor the Artist can accept responsibility for cash payments sent by post - don't do it!.

In the event of that any part of the fee remains unpaid or travel or accommodation documents not received within reasonable time for the Artist to plan his/her travel, the booking shall be void and the Artist will not be obliged to fulfil the engagement. The Artist or the Agency shall give no refund of any portion of the fee or travel and accommodation expenses.

Cancellation etc

We understand that things don't always run to plan and cancellations happen.  If your event is cancelled or postponed after the contract is agreed and you have paid please tell us immediately.

If the event or booking is cancelled or postponed for whatever reason the Agency and the Agency shall not be obliged to refund of any portion of the Artists fee already paid.

The Artist will take all reasonable steps to fulfil the engagement or advise the Booker of any problem or delay or non-arrival where this is both possible, practical, and permitted by the authorities.

If for any reason the Artist cannot fulfil the engagement for reasons outside the Artist's control, including but not limited to acts of God, civil unrest, severe weather conditions, travel delays or breakdown of vehicles not owned by the Artist, flight cancellation or overbooking of flights or customs/immigration problems or damage or loss or confiscation of records or equipment en route or non-availability of accommodation or insufficient or incorrect directions to venue or refusal of entry to venue or similar occurrences outside of the Artist control the booking will be considered to be void and no refund of any portion of the fee or travel or accommodation expenses will be made to the Booker by the Artist or the Agency.

If the Artist cannot perform for any personal reason including but not limited to death injury or illness or close family bereavement or other similar emergency the Agency shall take all reasonable steps to advise the Booker and where possible shall offer a replacement Artist of similar style and profile. All travel/accommodation costs for the replacement Artist shall be at the expense of the Booker. The non-performing Artist shall refund the full fee and return any unused tickets or accommodation vouchers to the Agency when this is possible. The Agency will take reasonable steps to assist with the transfer of any travel or accommodation documentation to the replacement Artist providing this is practical in the time available, and that any charges relating to the transfer are paid for by the Booker.

Where a replacement artist is not required or is unavailable Artists are required to return all fees to the Agency The Agency will return such monies to the Booker less any bank charges incurred in the transfer.

IMPORTANT Bookers should note that many economy and discount flight fares are extremely restrictive in regard to cancellation, change of passenger, or change of flight and in some cases no refund or change is allowed by the airline or ticket agent. Neither the Agency or the Artist are responsible for additional charges which may occur as a result of the Bookers choice of ticket. The cheaper the ticket the less likely it allows for any transfer.

Despite our unbroken artist appearance record to date, for any event where a no-show could cause financial risk the Booker must take out appropriate insurance to cover any direct and consequential loss that may occur. Neither the Artist nor the Agency are liable for any direct or consequential loss as a result of a no-show.

The Booker agrees that The Artist shall have the right to cancel the engagement without liability upon written or electronic notice to The Booker no later than 10 days prior to the date of the performance in the event that the Artist is called upon to render their services for a major radio or TV appearance, performance or recording, a motion picture or any other major career-advancing opportunity. Should this situation occur the Artist may be able to offer a mutually acceptable re-scheduled date to The Booker at the same performance fee as the original engagement.

In the event of a re-scheduled date not being acceptable to the Booker or feasible for the Artist, the Artist will return net fees paid to them by The Agency and if applicable, return any air or travel tickets already physically provided to the Artist. The Agency will remit these to the Booker less any bank charges incurred.

The Agency does not refund charges, fees, bank or other transaction charges incurred during any part of the booking process to any party under any circumstances.

Future/ Repeat Bookings

Repeat bookings from the same Booker or organisation and new bookings resulting from the artists performance detailed in this contract must be made through the Agency.

Artists Own Conditions/Riders

Booking contracts may contain additional terms and conditions information specific to the artist or tour relating to technical or personal riders, advertising / billing, flight times, personal requirements, broadcast and recording rights, sponsorship, cancellation fees etc so please read contract terms carefully to avoid misunderstandings (contract terms take precedence over standard terms).

Joyce Mercedes’ star has been rising fast the last few years. After successful performances at Dance Valley & Impulz festivals her musical career has lifted in the Netherlands evolving into a DJ of great stature with a busy agenda speaks for itself, regularly visiting several continents in one month and each weekend traveling from her hometown of Amsterdam to the cornes of the globe, racking up more than 20 different countries just in the first 6 months of 2005.

Joyce is exceptionally talented and is considered possibly the best female progressive house DJ in the world - we can't argue with that, her mixing and selection is some of the very finest in the style we have heard here at Sparkle and she has righly shared centre stage with the big guns; Sasha, Anthony Pappa, James Holden, Paul van Dyk, Chris Fortier & Derrick May. Her flawless choice of records shows a nose for a quality tune and her exceptional mix technique takes the dance floor from easy and accessible vocal harmonies through deep and funky foot food to deep, trippy and hypnotic beats, soaring to stunning prog trance monsters - a spectacular set that evidences a diverse musical vocabulary

From her birthplace in Nijmegen Joyce began work as a dancer for leading organizations Pantera and Extension, later moving to Amsterdam and performing with her dance colleagueon the Strycker & Holmes World Tour a sparkling dance show in some of the most famous clubs in the World. Her passion for music lies in her dancing as well as her singing. In the not to distant past Joyce was part of “Centerfold”, the group that sang in 1998 to a sold out Amsterdam Arena during half time of the classic football game Ajax-PSV Eindhoven . “Centerfold” also added lustre to the 15th year anniversary of Playboy and Joyce worked regularly as a model, featuring in campaigns for Heineken, Campari, Gap-Star and Playboy.

Not being content with success in two fields Joyces passion for music drove her to invest in truntables and master the art of mixing. Her first performance before an audience took place in sunny Miami at a private party and very soon word spread and the bookings started to roll in, culminating in a DJ residency at the well known Amsterdam Superclub Scan to Bookand a 2-year tour with Ibiza's Space World Tour to crown it all off.  At this moment Joyce has performed in almost every major club in mainland Europe, North and South America as well as many in the Far EasHer striving for success has naturally led her into the recording studio to produce her own music, which will finally bear fruit this year with a 12" erelease imminent, though Joyce admits that she struggles to fit in production time around her busy live schedule.   If it's anywhere near as good as her live sets it will be worth the wait!
