Furthur Booking Agency Profile

Book Furthur for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The Grateful Dead separated four months after Jerry Garcia's death in 1995. Members later played in RatDog, Phil Lesh and Friends, the Rhythm Devils, the Other Ones, and the Dead. After a four-year sabbatical following their "Wave That Flag" summer tour in 2004, the Dead performed two 2008 gigs supporting the Obama campaign, branded as "Deadheads for Obama" and "Change Rocks," then at one of the Obama inauguration balls in 2009, leading to a 2009 spring tour. Weir and Lesh decided to establish a new band during their reunion. Kadlecik, Chimenti, Lane, and Russo founded Furthur in August 2009.

The band was called after the 1939 International Harvester psychedelic rainbow bus used by novelist Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters to tour America in 1964. "Furthur" was the bus's destination and name. "In many ways, the 'Furthur' destination of the bus—piloted by Neal Cassady, inspiration for Jack Kerouac's Dean Moriarty in On the Road—represented the mind-set of the transition from Beat Generation culture to the more drug-infused hippie culture and the LSD-based psychedelic culture, with Ken Kesey, Neal Cassady, the Merry Pranksters, and the Grateful Dead— The Grateful Dead played several 1965-1966 Acid Tests.

Furthur's aesthetic and texture resembled the Dead's. Furthur tries to "keep things fresh" by introducing new material to their setlists. This includes songs from the Grateful Dead's enormous songbook, including "Alice D. Millionaire," as well as cover songs by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Band, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, and the Clash. They performed original material regularly..

The final Furthur 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 Furthur charge for an event. An example fee to book Furthur is in the starting range of $15,000-$24,999. 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 Furthur agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Furthur 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 Furthur for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Furthur agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Furthur, 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 Furthur 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 Furthur, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
