Vocalist Brandon Boyd and drummer Jose Pasillas went to elementary school together. In middle school, they met guitarist Mike Einziger, who spent most of his time playing guitar in his bedroom. Then, in high school, the trio became friends with bassist Alex Katunich, who was playing in a jazz band. In 1991, in the 10th grade, the four friends from Calabasas, California, decided to form a band, simply because they loved to play music – Incubus (Latin for nightmare).

In September of 1997, the band headed out with 311 and Sugar Ray. They were only supposed to be on the first leg of the tour. Things went so well and the response to Incubus was so great, they were asked to stay on for the remainder of the tour. While touring the US and Europe, fans of 311 and Sugar Ray saw Incubus and were amazed.
In February of 1998, the band asked their DJ, DJ Lyfe (Gavin), to leave the band. They asked DJ Kilmore (Chris) to fill the position. After this very productive tour and DJ replacement, the band began tours with many bands – Snot, Hed(pe), System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, and others.

After releasing “Pardon Me” as a single and having MTV pick it up as buzzworthy and Spankin’ New Music, the band headed out on the Sno-Core Tour with System of a Down, and Mr. Bungle. During this time, “Pardon Me” was being played all over the country.
In the fall of 2000, the band went on tour with The Deftones and Taproot. The band re-released the album Fungus Amongus on November 7th, 2000, with the same artwork, and track-listing as before. During the same year Incubus began touring once more with Hundred Reasons in Europe.
At this time, the band was invited to play with the Area 1 Festival, which featured Moby, Outkast, The Roots, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, and Nelly Furtado. Make Yourself was certified double-platinum, selling 2 million copies.
The band got to play their first shows in Australia and Japan, before returning to the United States to begin their headlining tour with their long-time friends from California, Hoobastank. Meanwhile, the band’s video for “Drive” was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award in the category of Best Group Video.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE INCUBUS?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire INCUBUS for an event?)
(i.e., what is INCUBUS booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for INCUBUS, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime 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 becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
