Capital Cities Booking Agency Profile

Book Capital Cities for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Best known for their hit song, Safe and Sound, Capital Cities is one of the most recent arrivals to the indie pop culture scene. Ryan Merchant first discovered Sebu Simonian on Craigslist while searching for an advertisement which offered production services. The energetic and quirky duo began writing commercial jingles and, after a successful three years creating music for advertising campaigns, they formed Capital Cities. After signing with Capitol Records, in cooperation with Lazy Hooks, the band's debut album In a Tidal Wave of Mystery was released and unveiled at #66 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Their hit song Safe and Sound has since been heard in promotional campaigns for HBO, Smart Car, Microsoft, Mazda, and many other commercials. It also has reached number one on both the U.S. Top Alternative Rock Charts and the German Singles Chart. The music video for Safe and Sound was also nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards: Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects. The video also won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Capital Cities.

Capital Cities'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 Capital Cities for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate to the price range to book Capital Cities, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Capital Cities. 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 Capital Cities booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Capital Cities for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Capital Cities 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 Capital Cities charge for an event. Also, thier 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 Capital Cities agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Capital Cities 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 Capital Cities for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Capital Cities agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Capital Cities, 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 Capital Cities 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 Capital Cities, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
