Poison Booking Agency Profile

Book Poison for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Poison is a glam metal band from Los Angeles. Formed by drummer Rikki Rockett and singer Bret Michaels. They started out in Pennsylvania in the early 80s. Their first band together was called the Spectres. They left the Spectres and started Paris with bassist Bobby Dall. They then moved to Los Angeles, where they parted ways with guitarist Matt Smith. Many people tried out for Poison’s vacant lead guitar spot, including soon-to-be Guns N’ Roses lead axeman Slash. After hiring C.C. DeVille, they changed their name to the more edgy ‘’Poison’’ and started working their way up the L.A. Club scene. They recorded their debut album ‘’Look What the Cat Dragged In’‘, which was made succesful by their massive hit ‘’Talk Dirty to Me,” whose video was played on a constant rotation on MTV. Poison’s next album, the fan favorite ‘’Open Up and Say… AH!’’ was carried on the shoulders of the chart topping ballad ‘’Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” written by Bret Michaels about his girlfriend cheating on him with Quiet Riot frontman Kevin DuBrow. Poison’s third album, Flesh & Blood, showed Poison’s more mainstream side. Since then, the band has released albums entitled Native Tongue, Crack a Smile…and More!, Hollyweird, and Poison’d!.

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Poison.

Poison'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 Poison for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate to the price range to book Poison, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Poison. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to 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 Poison booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Poison for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Poison booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Poison charge for an event. 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 too. 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 Poison agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Poison 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 Poison for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Poison agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Poison, 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 Poison 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 Poison, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
