The O'Jays Booking Agency Profile

Book The O'Jays for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The O'Jays are one of Philadelphia soul's most popular and long-lived outfits, known as soul's greatest vocal group of the '70s. Their recordings epitomized the Philly soul sound: smooth, rich harmonies backed by elaborate arrangements, lush strings, and a touch of contemporary funk. The O'Jays' debut, Back Stabbers, became a classic landmark of Philly soul; the title track hit the pop Top Five, and the utopian ""Love Train"" went all the way to number one. They had a remarkable run that produced nearly thirty chart singles, plus a series of best-selling albums and a bevy of number one hits on the R&B charts. The O'Jays followed up their breakthrough with another classic LP, Ship Ahoy; it featured the number one R&B hit ""For the Love of Money,"" a funky protest number that still ranks as one of their signature songs, as well as the ten-minute title track, an ambitious suite recounting the ocean journeys of African slaves. The O'Jays have been inducted into The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame, as well as the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and honored with BET's Lifetime Achievement Award..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking The O'Jays to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like The O'Jays in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking The O'Jays or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
The O'Jays'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 The O'Jays for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book The O'Jays, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing The O'Jays. 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 The O'Jays booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book The O'Jays for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final The O'Jays 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 The O'Jays charge for an event. An example fee to book The O'Jays is in the starting range of $150,000-$299,000. 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 The O'Jays agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The The O'Jays 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 The O'Jays for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the The O'Jays agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book The O'Jays, 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 The O'Jays 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 The O'Jays, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
