Hire Primus:
Primus is an American rock band formed in El Sobrante, California, in 1984. Over the course of various lineup changes, Les Claypool is the only remaining original member left in Primus.

Primus is characterized by its irreverent, quirky approach to music distinguished by Claypool’s bass-first songwriting style and eccentric lyrical themes. In 1993, Robert Christgau remarked: “[Primus is] quite possibly the strangest top-10 band ever, and good for them.”

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire PRIMUS for an event?)
(i.e., what is PRIMUS booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for PRIMUS, 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.

To learn the most current artist’s pricing, or the estimated artist’s fee for your particular event, simply click on the “Let’s Get Started!” link found on this page. Then, send us your request for booking information.
