Bad Brains Booking Agency Profile

Book Bad Brains for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Bad Brains, whether you know it or not, probably influenced your favorite modern punk band – directly or indirectly. There is no other band like Bad Brains, a group of Americans who blend punk with reggae for the first time. During the time of Sex Pistols, The Ramones, and The Clash, Bad Brains was doing something completely different. Gary Miller, AKA Dr. Know, realized the connection between reggae and punk before anyone else did and that, in the U.K., the lines were already beginning to blur. That was the focus of Bad Brains: to bring that same spirit to the states. After over 40 years of rocking out, the band is still alive in kicking. Currently, Bad Brains consists of Dr. Know, Darryl Jenifer, H.R., and Earl Hudson. Bad Brains released their self-titled debut in 1982. Since then, they’ve released eight additional studio albums, all of which have received positive reviews. Bad Brains is also known for their collaborative efforts and friendship with Beastie Boys – a band that also notably bled the lines between punk and other genres..

An example fee to book Bad Brains is in the starting range of $7,500-$14,999. 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.

We cannot give out direct contact information of the Bad Brains agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time.

There is low probability to book Bad Brains for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range.

By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Bad Brains, 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 Bad Brains 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.
