How to Hire AMERICA For Your Event!
Dewey Bunnell, Gerry Beckley
GRAMMY award-winning America is a rock band that was formed in London in 1970.
Formed in 1970 by the offspring of American service personnel stationed in the UK, America comprised Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley. Heavily influenced by Crosby, Stills, and Nash, they employed similarly strong counter-harmonies backed by acoustic guitar.

The Ian Samwell-produced single, “A Horse With No Name,” proved a massive UK Top 5 hit, ironically outselling any single by Crosby, Stills & Nash, and sounding more like Neil Young. With backing by Warner Brothers Records, and management by former UK “underground” disc jockey Jeff Dexter, the single went to the top of the US charts, immediately establishing the band as a top act.
The debut album “America,” which topped the US charts for five weeks, fit perfectly into the soft-rock style of the period and paved the way for a series of further US Top 10 hits including “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man” and “Lonely People.”

1972 seemed to be their year, but they never again reached quite the success of their debut. They did, however, have a number-one hit with “Sister Golden Hair” in 1975. Five years after their debut, Dan Peek left the band to pursue a solo career. America hit the U.S. top 10 once again in 1982 with the single “You Can Do Magic” off of their “View From The Ground” album.
After releasing “America in Concert” in the summer of 1985, the group continued to tour successfully into the ’90s and released “Human Nature” in 1998.
America won a Grammy Award in 1972 for Best New Artist.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE AMERICA?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire AMERICA for an event?)
(i.e., what is AMERICA booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for AMERICA, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
