How To Hire The O’Jays For A Private Party Or Special Event!
The O’Jays are an American R&B group from Canton, Ohio, formed in 1958.
It was in 1957 when Eddie LeVert, Walter Williams, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles began as a quintet called The Triumphs of McKinley High School in Canton, Ohio. In 1960, they became The Mascots but were renamed The O’Jays in 1963 after legendary radio D. J., Eddie O’Jay.
Things began to take off for the group when they signed with Imperial Records in 1963 and achieved their first hit, “Lonely Drifter.” This was followed by several hit singles and the release of their debut album in 1965, “Comin’ Through.” The O’Jays had released one more record, “Soul Sounds,” in 1967 when they met songwriters and producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.
The group soon recorded on Gamble and Huff’s Neptune label as a quartet (Isles departed in 1967). Massey left the group in 1972 and the trio united with Gamble and Huff on Philadelphia International Records recording some of the best R&B/pop hits ever. It was on the Philadelphia International label that The O’Jays’ career skyrocketed.
Their muscular vocal stylings, combined with their awesome showmanship have enabled The O’Jays to perform to sellout crowds worldwide. For the next seven years after the 1972 release of “Back Stabbers,” The O’Jays had a gold or platinum record every year and garnered three Grammy nominations for Best R&B Vocal Group.
In 1990, the group won an American Music Award for Favorite R&B Group or Duo for their hit album, “Emotionally Yours.” With six platinum and eight gold LPs including, “Family Reunion,” “Message in Our Music,” “Ship Ahoy,” “So Full of Love” and “Travelin’ at the Speed of Thought,” the talented trio has proven the test of time. With more than 50 hit singles released in their 40 year career, few people have earned the right to be called “living legends.” The O’Jays have earned that right!
The O’Jays have been a soul music staple for more than 40 years. Newest member, Eric Grant, is proud to be included as part of The O’Jays legacy.

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