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.

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 can't tell you how many compliments I received about the band during and even several days after the "surprise" party I through for my fiancé. Driven was outstanding! They sounded amazing and even learned some new music to help make Craig's day special! Jeff and the rest of the band were professional and very respectful. Overall my experience with Driven was over and above what I expected. I HIGHLY recommend them if you want your event to be a success! Thank you so much Jeff and the rest of the band, you made Craig's party a huge success! You made things easy...

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!

I hired Josh to perform for my wedding cocktail hour. He was absolutely was worth every penny. His communication and timing was perfect with every step of the process leading up to the day of the performance. He made sure my wife and I received exactly what we wanted. His attention to detail was incredible. A true professional! The only regret I have is that I do not hire him to perform for more time!

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.

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 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.

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.
