Sonny Rollins Booking Agency Profile

Book Sonny Rollins for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Sonny Rollins is a legendary jazz tenor saxophonist, whose long, prolific career began at the age of eleven. He received his first saxophone when he was thirteen, and was playing with piano legend Thelonious Monk before reaching the age of twenty. Rollins started as a pianist, changed to alto saxophone, and finally switched to tenor. During his high-school years, he played in a band with other future jazz legends Jackie McLean and Kenny Drew. He was first recorded in 1949 with Babs Gonzales in the same year he recorded with J. J. Johnson and Bud Powell. In his recordings throughout the next five years, he played with performers such as Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk. A seventy year career has spawned over sixty albums as a leader and several compositions, including St. Thomas," "Oleo," "Doxy," "Pent-Up House," and "Airegin," all which have become jazz staples. Rollins is still touring and recording today, having outlived most of his contemporaries such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Max Roach, and Art Blakey, all performers with whom he recorded. He has been elected to the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame, and honored with a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement..

Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear.

There is low probability to book Sonny Rollins for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Sonny Rollins agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Sonny Rollins, 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 Sonny Rollins 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 Sonny Rollins, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
