  9. It is not my responsibility to make sure your music is correct. I play what you send me and we do not alter it in any way. If your music isn’t right or doesn't sound like it is correct during your performance wave at us to stop so we can investigate. Do not come to us after the show, it will be too late. I am not responsible for finding your correct music online if the one you sent me is incorrect, remember that; you are responsible for your skit, your music and your performance.
