Ron recordered us live Saturday night October 17th as we played for a block party. I was very impressed with Ron's knowledge and his laid back attitude. He is a really good guy it appears by any standards. His professionalism is outstanding in all ways. I am going to do more work with him very shortly. I am genuinely looking forward to it.

I have had guitar lessons from Reggie Chavez now for over four years. I started with Reggie without any knowledge or previous training on guitar at the age of 58 . Reggie has literally opened a new door to me to the wonderful experience of the playing a musical instrument. I have learned the fundamentals and then learned how to play songs. Reggie has inspired me to play live with other guitarists confidently. Best of all, Reggie instructs in a way that is relaxed, and gives me constructive feedback in a reassuring way, never harsh or in a way I feel bad. He is the best !

Eddie is an amazing teacher- I picked up my first drumstick at the age of 50- and in a little over a year, I was playing in a band. He adapts his teaching style to how I learn, which is reading music from the charts and he transcribes songs for me- then explains every detail of a beat or a chart - He also has many cool exercises to increase my abilities in all areas- His experience, knowledge and most of all enthusiasm are some of his best traits- I still have a long way to go, but I fully believe I came along quicker in my ability to play because of finding Eddie as my instructor.

Andrew Gork of Gork Live performed at my brunch wedding in March 2015. The wedding was outdoors at The Farm South Mountain on a Sunday morning, and he was absolutely perfect. Not only does he have an incredible voice and musical talent in spades, but he really customized the experience for us. My husband and I sent him lists of our favorite songs, and he learned so, so many of them, so that all morning, not only did we hear beautiful music, but it was personal and meaningful to us, from Bob Dylan to Jeff Buckley and even a little TLC. He covered songs from a range of styles and decades, each with his own personal flair, and we got so many compliments on his performance. He also mixed in several of his original songs, which are incredibly beautiful. It had an awesome and cool indie vibe to it, and whether he is the primary entertainment for a daytime event, or dinner and cocktail music at an evening event, Andrew's professionalism and talent will ensure that your event is beautiful and meaningful and fun.

My wife, Crystal, and I hired Colleen and Chris Collins (aka Eirezona Duo) to perform at our wedding ceremony and reception June, 2017 in Sedona, AZ. They are an extremely talented husband and wife team, with a beautifully rich innate musicality ... we were nothing short of absolutely impressed! Colleen and Chris are both classically trained guitarists, and as such also play a wide range of instruments. Beyond her amazingly strong and beautiful vocals, Colleen also is an accomplished flutist. They transitioned seamlessly from playing light classical, and contemporary love songs during the ceremony portion of the evening, to rock, folk and country classics during our reception. Despite the busyness of the evening, from getting ready for the ceremony, to formal family photos and toasts, a big part of both Crystal and I just wanted to kick-back during cocktail hour to listen to their music and dance the night away! We received numerous compliments throughout the night for their amazing duet sound. There is no doubt that our guests were well-entertained with their performance. The music could not have been better! In addition to their performance the day-of our wedding, Colleen and Chris went above-and-beyond and invested time in learning our "first dance" song, "Feels Like Home", which was absolutely beautiful! The Collins are a rare blend of talent, flexibility, integrity and professional entertainment. They hold a strong desire to please and are also very well priced. You won't find a more likable pair of musicians! We give Colleen and Chris Collins our highest praises and would recommend them in a heartbeat! Thank you so, so much - Colleen and Chris! You all are absolutely wonderful and we look forward to enjoying more of your live performances in the future! Brian & Crystal Miller

I have been with Tom learning guitar since Sept. 2011. Iam only on my first book but I am loving my lessons more and more as we progress. Tom is a great teacher and an all around good guy. He lets you learn at the pace YOU are comfortable with and makes learning fun! I hope to continue learning not only my guitar but other intruments in the future with Tom. His prices are the best around and he makes you feel like a friend from the first day of your lessons. I would recommend anyone to take music lessons from Tom, you will be happy you made that first step, Iam.

Outside The Line was the most amazing band ever! My husband and I researched and listened to many bands before we officially booked Outside the Line. They were the best of the best! They have soul, spirit, swag, and an incredible sound. They kept the energy the room going all night! They worked with us and what we wanted, and they truly exceeded our expectations. Our wedding guests said the band was the best part of the wedding! I can not say enough good things about these guys! We definitely recommend them to everyone and anyone!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

How many mariachis can a band have?

A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.

How much does a mariachi band cost?

A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

  • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
  • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
  • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.
