Descendents Booking Agency Profile

Book Descendents for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The Descendents is an American punk rock group that was founded in 1977 by drummer Bill Stevenson, bassist Tony Lombardo, and guitarist Frank Navetta in Manhattan Beach, California. They reemerged as a punk rock band in 1979 after recruiting Stevenson's former classmate Milo Aukerman as a singer, and they quickly rose to prominence in the hardcore punk scene that was then emerging in Los Angeles. Eight studio albums, three live albums, three compilation albums, and four EPs have all been issued by them. Milo Aukerman has been the band's lead vocalist since 1986, together with Stephen Egerton on guitar, Karl Alvarez on bass, and Bill Stevenson on drums. Many contemporary pop punk and skate punk bands, including Blink 182, MXPX, NOFX, Green Day, Pennywise, Propagandhi, Rise Against, The All-American Rejects, The Bouncing Souls, The Offspring, and The Ataris, have acknowledged The Descendents as having had a significant influence on their sound. The first song that truly changed Mark Hoppus' life was "Silly Girl" from "I Don't Want to Grow Up" (1985). Nothing else had ever spoken to him the way it did. A documentary about the group called Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All debuted in 2014. Interviews with Hoppus, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters, and Mike Watt of Minutemen are included in the movie..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Descendents to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Descendents in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Descendents or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Descendents'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 Descendents for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Descendents, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Descendents. After we consult with them, we will 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 accurate Descendents booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Descendents for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Descendents booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Descendents charge for an event. An example fee to book Descendents is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. 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 as well. 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 Descendents agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Descendents 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 Descendents for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Descendents agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Descendents, 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 Descendents 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 Descendents, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
