"How much does it cost to book Rafer Johnson for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Rafer Johnson 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 Rafer Johnson 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.
