Help with my DJ Contract?

I just received the contract from my DJ company and I have a couple questions.  There are a couple clauses in it that seem a little sketchy and I just wanted to know if they were commonplace or if you ladies think I should try to have them amended in some way.  They are :
  • COMPANY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO CLIENT FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIABILITY OF COMPANY IS LIMITED TO DEPOSIT PAID TO COMPANY. DEPOSITS NON-REFUNDABLE.
  • COMPANY RESERVES RIGHTS TO ARTISTIC CONTROL INCLUDING SELECTION OF MATERIAL, VOLUME, SET-UP, APPEARANCE OF EQUIPMENT AND PARTS THEREFORE. THIS INCLUDES RIGHT TO RECORD, PHOTOGRAPH OR VIDEOTAPE EVENT FOR PROMOTIONAL USE.
In regards to the last one, they do have the ability to set up a Do Not Play list and a Must Play list, so I'm not too concerned about the music that will be played, more about the other parts of that clause.  What do you think?  Thanks in advance for any help!

    Zero liability clauses are fairly standard in my experience. I think every one of my wedding vendors had one, as does my regular dinner party catering company. My grandpa is a contract lawyer and looked over all of my contracts, and didn't say anything about any similar clauses.

    As far as the second clause, I agree that you should be fine as long as you provide your Do Not Play and Must Play lists.

    This seems pretty standard to me!

    I agree--make sure you have your do not play, etc. lists and you should be fine!

    Thanks ladies!  I just realized the bullets I used for the two clauses didn't show up, sorry if that was hard to read!
