The violin guitar duo was a great idea for our outdoor wedding ceremony! Lali reached out to me with the idea when I had requested a project for a harp player. Although I am a bit bummed that I couldn't listen to their whole routine as I was getting ready indoors doing and last min preps before the ceremony. I was able to hear the song that the bridal party walked down the aisle to and the song I chose for me. All the guests complemented on how lovely the music was and that it was loud enough to hear. Lali was very responsive through email and was great about creating a timeline. They also have a wonderful song list to choose from. The only con would be that they required shade, which is understandable, but there was limited shade where we were (kind of far and would of looked awkward) and we had to rent an umbrella for them. I would suggest that Lali invests in an umbrella for clients. Wedding vendors are already playing the nickel and dime game with the bride and groom and it would be nice to have to worry about one less thing. Thank you for your amazing performance Lali!

Yorman Williams and his band Yormelodies is a group of professional musicians who really knows how to get the party started. Instantly capturing the audience's attention with their wide range of music from the 60s, 70, 80s, and 90s, no one was able to remain in their seats as they performed. At one point, Yorman himself gave a superb rendition of Louis Armstrong's :"What a wonderful world", and if we were'nt all looking directly at him, we would never believe it was not Louis himself. I highly recommend this great performer for weddings, parties, reunions, and celebrations!

I began working with Judyta at the beginning of 2014, my sophomore year in high school. I had been studying saxophone for 6 years prior working to her in the school band. I really enjoyed working with her; she gave me an excellent balance of classical/technique exercises as well as some fun stuff that I could practice. She really helped improve some major issues, and was able to correct in a few weeks some very bad habits that I had been uncorrected during my time with the band. She also very flexible with her schedule, which really helped me out! Working with her was a very positive experience and she really helped me out!

Arturo played for us on 3/31/2017 and they were outstanding. They showed up in traditional mariachi dress and sang to my wife las mananitas. He played for two hours, played requests, and played some of their favorites. Everyone was very impressed with Arturo and his band. I will definitely use Arturo in the future and for all occasions if we would like to listen to maraichi music. I highly recommend Arturo!!!!!

The outdoor atmosphere with the beautiful sunset and the band playing on the patio made for an unforgettable night. Karmn's selection of songs perfectly fit the occasion. I appreciated the versatility of the song selection, Karmn's professionalism and her good rapport with the audience. We all, as well as others in the audience truly enjoyed your performance. Look forward to many more!

    What a darling and kind Santa and Mrs. Claus! They were so detailed with letting each kiddos sit on their lap and give them special time! He sang great carols to the kids and was in character the entire time. The both were super realistic! My 6 year old had a blast at her party!

    Free Rain was kind enough to come to our wedding near Mt. Hood in Oregon, which is over a 4-hour drive from their homebase in Seattle. They were AWESOME! Dale is a great guitarist, all the musicians are very talented, and their female vocalist is out of this world. Anytime they were playing people were dancing for all 3 hours of their set. We didn't want them to stop, and they were kind enough to oblige us with an encore song since they likely faced a mutiny from the crowd if they didn't:) Dale was wonderful to work with... very quick responses, and seemingly able to deal with as much or as little input on the setlist as you want to give. We didn't have much direction to give, and completely left it in his hands, which was the right call. They've played enough events and weddings to know what keeps people moving. We received a bunch of compliments on them, which goes to show how lucky my wife and I were to find them. The quick summary: If you're looking for a professional, awesome-sounding, and high energy band playing great covers from the 80's through today, these are your guys (and gal). I couldn't recommend them more highly!

    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.
