Guided By Voices Booking Agency Profile

Guided by Voices produced a series of trebly, hissy indie rock recordings full of infectiously brief pop tunes that sat halfway between the British Invasion and prog rock, drawing inspiration from both jangle pop and arty post-punk. The Dayton, Ohio-based band, led by singer-songwriter Robert Pollard, released six albums on their own and gained a small following in the American indie rock scene. Following the group's securing of a bigger distribution agreement with Matador Records, the group unexpectedly became an alternative rock phenomenon.
They initially maintained their sound, continuing to record their albums on affordable four-track tape decks (like Bee Thousand), but Pollard had added new band members, moved the group to a bigger label (TVT) and started working with renowned producers in actual recording studios. As a result, Isolation Drills became a classic example of hi-fi rock. Pollard's melodic tastes remained largely unchanged despite this and the band managed to find a balance between Pollard's spontaneous, compact songcraft and more advanced production methods when they returned to the independent scene for Universal Truths and Cycles. Their 38th studio album and eighth since the start of the decade, prog-meets-power pop masterpiece La La Land, was the first record they released after an unplanned reunion..

"How much does it cost to book Guided By Voices for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Guided By Voices 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 Guided By Voices charge for an event. An example fee to book Guided By Voices is in the starting range of $40,000-$74,999. 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 Guided By Voices agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Guided By Voices 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 Guided By Voices for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Guided By Voices agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Guided By Voices, 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 Guided By Voices 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 Guided By Voices, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
