And thank you for considering me as your entertainer for a most special event! I would be honored to help your event SHINE, and create an experience your guests CANNOT stop talking about! ✨ MY EXPERIENCE: In just over a year of full-time operation within the events space, I have: 1. Booked Over 100 Performances 2. Generated Over 150k in Booking Revenues 3. Been Awarded and Maintained Prestigous Top-Pro Status on Thumbtack Nationwide I have been blessed to play for loving brides and grooms as they walk down the aisle on their biggest day. I have played for Fortune 500 companies as they graciously reward employees and clients. I’ve played for VIPs at Olympic Qualifying Events. I’ve helped throw countless RAGERS (high-energy parties) that will be talked about forever. There is no vibe unseen. From yachts, to ballrooms. From the heart of metropolis to the middle of nature. I’ve played in tiny corners and atop massive stages and everything in between. My song list is extensive and inclusive, reflecting countless hours of effort and building. It features music that is familiar and resonant, across all-genres (sans mariachi, pre-prohibition era) played in a style that is fresh and personal to my experience. (List available on website above!) SERVICES I PROVIDE: - Solo Acoustic Performance (Vocals and/or Guitar) - DJ - Accompanying Acoustic Musicians - Full Band Shows - Professional (Self) Recordings - Emceeing/Speaking Appearances SERVICES I DO NOT PROVIDE: - Booking Agency For External Talent - Free/Exposure/Non-Compensated - Looping/Tracks TRAVEL SCHEDULE: I travel across and out of the country throughout the year, booking to booking, most-often in my touring van with my pup Cabela 🐶, taking flights when ground transportation has been deemed unsuitable. I am most often in South Florida “eventing”November through March, doing fly-outs/day-week trips as booked through the season (staying in warm weather as much as I can), but am ALWAYS open to accommodating your spectacular event requests. I DO NOT CHARGE TRAVEL FEES. My quoted rates are flat, as opposed to hourly (reflecting demand and opportunity cost), and all-inclusive: Booking, Performance, Sound, Lighting, Travel. ***I Offer Insurance Upon Request*** QUICK NOTE ON MARKET POSITIONING AND PRICING (PLEASE READ BEFORE REQUESTING QUOTE VIA THUMBTACK OR OTHERWISE): There is a phrase I tell every potential client looking for a “deal” or a budget provider: “You will ALWAYS be able to find someone to do it for less in this market.” I am however, not that provider. I am exclusively a premium provider. If you choose to contact multiple providers, there is a strong chance I will be your highest quote. There is also a chance my quote will fall above your budget. Please reach out directly (via my website) for budget concerns, and I will do my best to accommodate honestly, as I am able. There are three things you will ALWAYS find in your personal booking experience with me that can easily and most often will be sacrificed in “budget bottoming” or working with multi-level booking agencies: 1. Professionalism 2. Top Quality Music and Entertainment 3. Tip to Tail Premium, Personal Booking Experience In my humble opinion (and experience as I’ve seen from inquirers pre and post), the cost of having a proven, invested, CARING provider always outweighs the alternative. PHILANTROPY: For 501(c)3, pro-bono, and philanthropic requests, kindly email as listed on website. I have a passion for service and am happy to discuss requests for performance OUTSIDE of PRIME BUSINESS HOURS (non-weekend, Mon-Wed) FINALLY, PLEASE take time to read the thoughtful reviews from all of my wonderful clients throughout the country, and never hesitate to call directly for any questions or aid in helping plan your special event. I can’t wait to join you for an unforgettable time together, Frank Giovetti MINIMUM FEE: 1.0K (local, < 1hr travel, < 1 hr performance, non-prime business hours)See more

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.
