DRKWAV Booking Agency Profile

Book DRKWAV for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
DRKWAV is an improv-heavy, psychedelic band comprised of members Skerik playing the saxophone, John Medeski playing keyboards and Adam Deitch on the drums. The group’s musical style is intricate and cinematic. The New York Times described their debut album, The Purge, as “informed as much by the torqued jazz-rock of the early 1970s as by the dark ambient and drum ‘n’ bass music of the early ‘90s, while still pursuing an indeterminacy of style.” Skerik is known as a member of the bands Critters Buggin and Garage Á Trois, Deitch for his work with Lettuce, and Medeski for his role in Medeski Martin & Wood. All of these bands play jam-band style music, with an emphasis on funk and soul. Skerik is recognized for his influence on saxophonics, and was named “Northwest Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year” at the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Awards. Medeski is known as a veteran of New York’s 1990s avant-garde jazz scene and was an inaugural member of the Independent Music Awards’ judging panel to support independent artists. Deitch was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album for writing and producing two songs on Ledisi’s album Turn Me Loose..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking DRKWAV.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like DRKWAV, with postponed or cancelled events due to COVID-19 are now, in certain cases, considering virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking DRKWAV or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
DRKWAV's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking DRKWAV for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book DRKWAV, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing DRKWAV. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the DRKWAV booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book DRKWAV for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final DRKWAV booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will DRKWAV charge for an event. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the DRKWAV agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The DRKWAV manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book DRKWAV for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the DRKWAV agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book DRKWAV, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the DRKWAV booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for DRKWAV, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
