Bambara Booking Agency Profile

Before they were known as Bambara, 23jinx got their start as a post-punk and noise rock band in 2001. The band consists of Reid Bateh on lead vocals and guitar, Blaze Bateh on drums and vocals, and William Brookshire on bass and vocals. Under 23jinx, they released their debut album “Curtains and Cannibals” in 2005. After adopting the name Bambara, signed with Arrowhawk Records in 2013. The next year, they were just about done recording and mastering their new album “Swarm” but unfortunately, their computer was stolen, and all the music went with it. After having to start from scratch, Bambara created an all-new EP full of experimental noise called “Night Chimes” which steered the band in a new direction. Since 2013, Bambara released four studio albums: “Dreamviolence”, “Swarm”, “Shadow on Everything”, and most recently “Stray”. They’ve also released four EP’s, starting with the aforementioned “Night Chimes”, “Dog Ear Days”, “Rings”, and “Love On My Mind” in 2022. They’ve toured with big punk bands like IDLES and Daughters. Singer Reid cites all kinds of things – musical and non-musical -- as the band’s main inspirations: David Lynch, Flannery O’Connor, Wong Kar Way, and Bruno Schulz..

An example fee to book Bambara 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 Bambara agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Bambara 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 Bambara for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Bambara agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Bambara, 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 Bambara 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 Bambara, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
