How to Book Duck Dynasty Speakers
How to Book Duck Dynasty Speakers
So, you've decided you want to book Duck Dynasty to speak at your event but you don't know how, right? Well, I actually went through a little bit of trouble trying to book them for a benefit show my non-profit organization, The Brittany and Zeke Foundation is having in a few months.
I really wanted to book Phil, Si, Willie, or Jase to come speak at the benefit so I set out on a mission to figure out how to book the Duckmen, and I was finally able to get through to their booking agent.
On this page I have compiled everything I know about booking the cast of Duck Dynasty to come speak at your event. By the time you have finished reading you will have all of the answers to your questions and will be able to decide if booking Duck Dynasty for your next event is what you want to do.
UPDATE: I have a new page with more facts and opinions after my rude phone call from the Duck Dynasty booking agent about this page. You can find that page here
Contact Duck Dynasty Speaker Booking Agent
On the Duck Dynasty website it says that you will need to email email@example.com in order to book the Duckmen; however, that is an invalid email address.
After searching around I found the correct email address to get in contact with their booking agent is: firstname.lastname@example.org
All you have to do is send an email to that address and detail which speaker(s) you would like and what your event is. They will get back to you very quickly.

How much does it cost to book Duck Dynasty to Speak?
It's all about the money!
I have to admit that finding out how much it costs to book Willie, Si, or Jase for our benefit show almost gave me a heart attack!
To be fair, I have never booked a speaker that I had to pay since we are a non-profit charity who gives 100% of our proceeds to the causes we support, so I had no clue how much the cost would be.
Here is a rundown of how much it costs to book each member of the Duck Dynasty cast:
WILLIE, SI or JASE: $45,000 each plus first class expenses from Louisiana
JEP, KORIE or KAY: $15,000 each plus first class expenses from Louisiana
ALAN, MARTIN, GODWIN, JESSICA, MISSY: $10,000 each plus first class expenses from Louisiana
LISA, MOUNTAIN MAN, SADIE, JOHN LUKE, COLE, REED: $5,000 each plus first class expense from Louisiana
*Please note Si and Mountain Man will only do a meet & greet and photos- they do not speak.
Saturday and Sundays only, from May to August, can be considered at this time. Phil is not looking at anymore dates for 2013 at this time.
UPDATE (10/22/13): I had a very rude conversation with Teressa Brown (Duck Dynasty's booking agent I suppose) about this page. She doesn't like it that I am telling people the facts, and I suppose she doesn't like it that so many people agree with me that these prices are ridiculous. Anyway, she says the prices have changed but never told me what they are. According to a commenter below, the $45,000 has now gone up to $100K but I have been unable to confirm this price raise nor any of the other prices. If you would like the most accurate information or would like to voice your displeasure, please contact Teressa Brown at 212-903-1194
Addition Information You Might Find Useful
I was also notified that in addition to paying the high costs of booking one of the Duck Dynasty crew there were some additional costs that would need to be paid. I have listed that information below.
A typical appearance is capped at 2 hours.
They also ask that travel is covered for a spouse or other family member when booking one or two of the men together. For instance, if booking Willie and Phil, they would ask for first class travel for at least 3 or 4 if possible. If booking a couple, first class travel for 2 should be sufficient. Private planes are best to offer, as commercial travel from Monroe is limited.
What ever happened to jumping in the car or RV and driving somewhere? I guess money changes people and they forget how to do these things. Now they need private planes in order to jump a couple of states over to speak for a charity.

Is the Cast of Duck Dynasty Really Christian?
Or are they just using God to make money
Since creating this page I have received several messages from people saying how they can't believe that the cast of Duck Dynasty would not come speak at our event. The one comment that seems to be consistent in the messages is, "I thought these guys were supposed to be Christians."
Let me explain a little bit about our charity in case you haven't had the chance to visit our website and see what we do.
We are a non-profit charity that gives 100% of all donations we collect to the causes we support. The Brittany and Zeke Foundation was formed after my sister and nephew were murdered in 2011 when my 25 year old sister was 8 1/2 months pregnant with my nephew.
Our mission is to raise awareness for violence against pregnant women so that we can help put an end to it.
We have hosted various events in support of great causes over the past year and a half. Currently we are raising money to start a scholarship fund in memory of Brittany and Zeke.
One would think that after hearing all of this about our foundation it would be a good Christian deed to help us out.
Instead, I was sent an email telling me that it would cost $45,000 each for Willie, Jase, Si, and Phil to show up for 2 hrs. Plus we would have to pay first class travel expenses for them and their spouses to travel.
Now, if I've done my math right that works out to $22,500 per hour each just to do God's work.
On top of that the Duckmen are stalling on making season 4 because they want more money from A&E.
Do they really want to spread the word of God and put a Christian message out there?
I'm not saying people should work for free by any means and I'm not saying that mine is the only charity that is worthy of a free appearance.
I am just saying, it makes one wonder whether the Duck Dynasty cast is using God for money or whether they really want to spread the word of Christ and put their faith in Him to provide for their needs.
I mean after all, how much money do they need to make? Don't they already have plenty? I thought Christians were supposed to store up their treasures in Heaven and not on Earth.
