"DeVotchKa’s first big break happened when Nic Harcourt, former music director for KCRW, introduced his listeners to a then unknown rock band of worldly sounds on his daily radio show, “Morning Becomes Eclectic”. Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, who were listening that
day, stumbled upon the sound for their movie, “Little Miss Sunshine”. A critical and box office hit, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa’s soundtrack, a Grammy. The little gypsy wedding band from Denver was suddenly known all across the
nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Bumbershoot, Lollapalooza, and Mile High Music Festival. After years of toiling in obscurity, the band was selling out shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco and First Avenue in Minneapolis, with
breakout performances at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits Music Festival. The love spread to Europe, which has become a yearly destination for the band.".

The final Devotchka 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 Devotchka charge for an event. An example fee to book Devotchka is in the starting range of $40,000-$74,999. 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.
There is low probability to book Devotchka for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Devotchka agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Devotchka, 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 Devotchka 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 Devotchka, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
