Peter C, I think you'll find that the hotel chain will apply the same policy to anyone coming onto their premises to work - not just entertainers, but builders, plumbers, electricians etc. Most organisations take Health & Safety extremely seriously, and the larger the organisation the more likely you are to find they go beyond doing the bare minimum to stay legal. They set high standards for themselves and their own staff, and expect external contractors coming onto their premises to meet those standards, and show they can do so by providing certificates, method statements etc.
There seems to be a feeling among some folk bands that because (for most of us) it's a paying hobby rather than a "real job" that somehow we're excused from acting in a professional and business-like manner. We're not.
