Gitkin Booking Agency Profile

Book Gitkin for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Gitkin's music occupies a liminal space between primitive, rootsy recollection and far-off exotic desire — a dusty bordertown where the familiar mixes imperceptibly into the enthrallingly alien.
Multi-instrumentalist Brian J set out to experiment with tonalities he'd never played with after a lengthy and successful tenure as a bandleader with the continuously touring party-rockers Pimps Of Joytime and a Grammy-nominated country blues collaboration with Cedric Burnside. Gitkin's first two studio albums received mixed reviews, with some describing them as vaguely "cinematic" and positively contrasting them with Khruangbin. It's true that much of the music is instrumental, emotive and focused on the guitar. But it has a seductive magic all of its own.
Gitkin's well-received debut album, Five Star Motel, abundantly showed off his familiarity with earthy funk and a loosely sliced rhythm. The traveling guitarist's already diverse palette was expanded on his follow-up album, Safe Passage, by songs influenced by Greek and Middle Eastern rhythms, Peruvian Chicha and Tuareg Saharan guitar techniques. This contrast of gutsy blues and funk low-end with shockingly wacky lead phrases is no gimmick; rather, it brings out the potent flavors of each flavorful element..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Gitkin to perform.

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