Book Chantels for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The Chantels were the first black female group to achieve nationwide success. The group was established in the early 1950's at St. Anthony of Padua school in the Bronx, and consisted of Arlene Smith (lead), Sonia Goring, Rene Minus, Jackie Landry Jackson and Lois Harris.

The Chantels' first single was He's Gone" (Pop #71), followed by their second single, "Maybe" (#15 Pop; #2 R&B). Several other singles were released on End, though none as successful as "Maybe." Arlene Smith decided to go solo, while Lois left to pursue a college education. In 1960, Annette Smith (no relation) replaced Arlene and the group went to Carlton Records, where they had their second huge hit with "Look in My Eyes" (#14 pop, #6 R&B).

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Chantels.

Chantels'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 Chantels for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate to the price range to book Chantels, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Chantels. 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 Chantels booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Chantels for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Chantels 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 Chantels charge for an event. Also, thier 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 Chantels agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Chantels 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 Chantels for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Chantels agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Chantels, 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 Chantels 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 Chantels, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
