Bad Books Booking Agency Profile

Book Bad Books for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Bad Books was never an intended or was a calculated side project of Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestras Andy Hull. Though the two musicians have collaborated and performed together on tour and within the Favorite Gentlemen community of artists for years now, the genesis of Bad Books came from a simple idea to fill space and time off the road by collaborating on a small batch of songs together. With no agenda and no expectations, what was birthed just one week later was Bad Books. The self-titled debut was released in 2010 via Favorite Gentlemen Recordings, the record label that was founded and has been run by Manchester Orchestra since 2007. As songwriters go, Hull and Devine could not be further apart in terms of creative approach. The methodical wordsmith Devine, and the English major from Fordham, is known to pine away for great lengths of time just to accurately pin-point one word within a lyric. The second collaboration between singer/songwriter Kevin Devine and Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra, Bad Books II finds these two extraordinary tunesmiths untethered from their respective brands, joining forces to reach new stylistic and emotional terrain. The real-time sound of a group of talented friends synthesizing into something altogether more cohesive and accessible, Bad Books reveals a remarkable new band in the truest sense, emboldened and at ease enough to set out together for places unknown..

Bad Books'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 Bad Books for your party.

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