  Primus - booking information

Hits include: "My Name is Mud",
"Wynona's Big Brown Beaver",
"Jerry Was a Race Car Driver",
"N.I.B.", "Making Plans for Nigel".

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."

Unlike other bands associated with the 1990s alternative music movement, Primus emerged from a mostly metal background, with Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde previously a part of the 1980s Californian thrash metal underground. Kirk Hammett, guitarist of Bay Area thrash metal band Metallica, remarked in a 1991 interview that Primus are "unique, they're a square peg in a round hole".

The music of Primus has been described as "thrash-funk meets Don Knotts, Jr." and "the Freak Brothers set to music". Also, Primus has been categorized as alternative rock, alternative metal, experimental rock, funk rock, funk metal, progressive rock, and "thrash-funk".

Regarding the band's genre, Les Claypool stated in 1991 "We've been lumped in with the funk metal thing just about everywhere. I guess people just have to categorize you". MTV suggests that Primus is "a post-punk Rush spiked with the sensibility and humor of Frank Zappa". Les Claypool himself once described their music as "psychedelic polka." SPIN have labelled Primus as "pranksters" and, in 1995, as an "unlikely gold-selling white trash purveyor of hard-ass pinballing funk metal".

Primus' influences include King Crimson, the Residents, Rush, Pink Floyd and Hillel Slovak-era Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The band have been credited as an influence to the nu metal genre, with bands such as Deftones, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Pressure 4-5 and Pleymo all having been inspired by Primus.

Primus is also known for their unique live performances that feature extended solos and improvisation. Many of their songs have been upgraded significantly with changed lyrics, added solos, and general alterations in musical composition. Claypool often plays the whamola during drum solos.

(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 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.

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.
