How to Hire WEEZER For Your Event!
Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, Scott Shriner
GRAMMY award-winning Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1992.
U.S. guitar pop artisans from Los Angeles, California, USA, Weezer originally was comprised of Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Matt Sharp (later replaced by Mikey Welsh), and Patrick Wilson. Cuomo grew up in rural Connecticut before deciding to move to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to form a band. It was too little immediate success, but tortured by the sundering of a relationship, he began to write his own songs.
Bell first learned guitar in Tennessee by playing along to television shows, such as Hee Haw, picking on a ukulele his grandmother won at a bingo game. Sharp brought the unlikely influences of Talk Talk and Gary Numan to the bass player’s role. Wilson was introduced to the other members via fellow Buffalo citizen Pat Fin (of Winkler). The four protagonists had met as strangers who found themselves abroad in Los Angeles and decided to form a band together. The official date of formation was 14 February 1992, signing to DGC Records in June of the following year.
On the back of offbeat singles, “Undone – The Sweater Song” and “Buddy Holly” (a tale of high school prom rejection featuring a memorable Happy Days pastiche video), and seven months’ touring their native country, their self-titled debut album, produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars and Chris Shaw in New York, went on to sell nearly a million copies.
Their preference for goofy garage aesthetics soon distinguished them, and, with fuzzboxes and falsetto harmonies (from Sharp) to the fore, comparisons to They Might Be Giants hardly delineated their musical compass, despite helping to pinpoint their humor. The participants, meanwhile, remained awestruck at the depth of their appeal: “We’ve sold all these albums when, honestly speaking, we’re a super straight-ahead American guitar garage rock band.”

The title of their 1996 album infuriated the security company Pinkerton Service, and they issued legal proceedings shortly after its release. Wilson and Sharp also recorded with the Rentals; the latter left Weezer in 1998 to concentrate on this new outfit. The third collection, “The Green Album” was a sparkling return to the infectious heavy pop of their debut. “Don’t Let Go,” “Photograph” and “Hash Pipe” all follow each other on the album, a glorious opening suite of power chord heaven.
In 2005, they performed at Lollapalooza along with artists such as Billy Idol, CAKE, Dashboard Confessional, Hard-Fi, The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Death Cab for Cutie, Drive-By Truckers, Kasabian, Tegan and Sara, The Killers, and Widespread Panic.
On May 29, 2018, Weezer released a cover of Toto‘s song “Africa”. The song reached number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in August 2018, becoming the band’s first number-one single since “Pork and Beans” in 2008. “Africa” eventually peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The members of Weezer have listed influences including Kiss, Nirvana, the Pixies, Cheap Trick, Pavement, Oasis, the Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day and Wax. Cuomo credited the Beach Boys as a major influence, specifically Pet Sounds; Bell described Weezer‘s sound as “Beach Boys with Marshall stacks”. The band members’ worship for hard rock and heavy metal music was the source of inspiration behind Van Weezer, including 1970s and 1980s bands like Kiss, Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Van Halen.
Artists such as Fun., Pete Wentz, Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Blink-182, Steve Lacy, Charli XCX, Real Estate, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Cymbals Eat Guitars, DNCE, Ozma, Wavves, and the Fall of Troy cite Weezer as an influence.
Their discography includes 15 studio albums, two compilation albums, one video album, nine extended plays, 37 singles, and 40 music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE WEEZER?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire WEEZER for an event?)
(i.e., what is WEEZER booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for WEEZER, 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.
