Everything! He understands the business side of music and he was the only vendor I did not lose sleep over as I planned my husband's 70th birthday party. The J Mann band is professional and offered us a wide variety of the songs we loved and asked for. Justin's voice, their harmony, and rhythm were fun to dance to and they brought each song to life, complimenting the original artists beautifully. We had a wonderful time and would recommend them to anyone, anytime. Makes me want to have another party just so we can invite them back and listen!

I searched the internet high and low for a piano/guitar duo with vocals and stumbled upon Thumbtack. We hired Shea for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and it was the best decision we made in planning our special day! Shea was responsive, accommodating, professional, and punctual - and that voice!! <3 She provided us with a list of songs ahead of time for our review and even learned two new ones for the wedding processional. I cannot recommend her enough! Hire her, now!

Summer is an amazing theory teacher in so many ways! She's incredibly professional, patient, intuitive, and understanding and has the ability to teach to your personal learning style. Loved every minute of working with her, and it's helped advance my own understanding of music, both with guitar and singing, in a way that has allowed me to make leaps and bounds in my own songwriting as well as learning other music styles. Hire her, right this very minute!

Verified review

As a professional musician (guitar and vocals) that does not read music, I have had a few lessons with this guy to help with my reading of music, theory, and soloing. He presents everything to me in a very understandable manner and exudes the utmost patience in getting me to the next level. I have never had music lessons before so this seemed daunting at first but now I have broken through long standing plateaus and I am reinvigorated to push myself to the next level. I will definitely be continuing this approach with Mr violin in the future.

BPEACE is the most soulful musician in Southern California. I was blown away at how smooth and kool this guy sounds. I’m definitely hiring him for another event. Do yourself a favor and get BPEACE before he goes global. This is the sound and vibe that gets you noticed, and it’s BPEACE’s time.

    Josh and I married September 6th at the Scripps Forum in La Jolla and Republic of Music (ROM) made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!!! Since I had been planning our wedding from Washington, I didn't get to see the band live prior to our wedding. My dad and siblings went to see ROM play at Club M in Del Mar and they were blown away!! I was already impressed by the reviews and YouTube videos I had seen and read. I knew they were going to be the perfect match for our wedding day and I was totally right!! ROM is professional, fun, amazing and freakishly good at their craft! Vocals were ON POINT and the musicians brought the funk!! We opted to splurge on horns two weeks before the wedding and it was a great decision!! Our guests LOVED the band and their personalities and stage presence set the mood for the night. I cannot say enough about Tiana and how amazing she is to work with. She eased my way from the moment I spoke with her. (I had already booked another band but changed my mind once I was told about ROM) She provided me with piece of mind and made our day run so smoothly. The band did an excellent job keeping our day on schedule and emceed the entire event perfectly. It was really comforting to know that our families could enjoy the evening and not have to worry about making announcements or keeping the night on schedule. Dinner music was amazing, slower songs really allowed you hear just how amazingly talented the vocalists are. As the evening progressed Josh and I did not stop dancing all night along with our guests! My sisters and I also got to be band mates for the day and sing with the band which was pretty epic!! My dad is a man of few words, but he couldn't stop talking about the band for days!! He already said he wants to book ROM for their 40th wedding anniversary!! If you're looking for a band for your big event, stop looking!!! You have found who you are looking for!! ROM will not disappoint! I wish I could crash all the weddings they performed at so I can sing and dance the night away. That's how awesome they are! Thank you ROM for everything!!! Your forever fans, Mr. & Mrs. Calkins!

    Jarred was the perfect addition to my client's grand opening event. He was professional, personable and very easy to work with. He was the hit of the party. His vocals and guitar talents created a perfect atmosphere for the event. I have every confidence that Jarred will be hired for a future event I produce.

    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.
