Grammy Award winning America is a rock band that
was formed in London in 1970.
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, they never again reached quite the success of their debut. They did however have a number 1 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?
Official booking fees for AMERICA, or any other celebrity, are
determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior
(i.e., what is the fee of AMERICA for an event?)
(i.e., what is AMERICA charging to perform at an event?)
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.
artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any
particular offer from a talent buyer.
