I had a house DJ cancel on me last minute. So I called Tucker Booth and explained the situation. Overall i think it worked out better than the original DJ. Tucker had the right selection of classic Rock and Hip Hop covers. All my friends kept messaging the next day talking about him and how he killed it! when he busted out "girls just wanna have fun" all the ladies flipped!!! I highly recommend Tucker Booth!

My wedding was PERFECT thanks to Arden! From the initial contact Arden was professional, prompt, and energetic. He incorporated my suggestions & song ideas and offered some really fun and creative ideas, without being pushy. Highlights: - Played old school, latin, classic rock, and hip hop music - Had his own lighting system - Came out & got the entire crowd to do an improv Bollywood dance - Had his assistant MC the reception while he played the music - Danced with guests and got them on the floor when it was dying down - Did a guys vs. girls dance battle! - Had a surprise Latin dance performance! SO awesome! - Did his Thing at the reception and didn't bother me or my groom with a single question My reception was a mix of ages (21-70yrs old) and everyone had a good time. My husband and I snuck out of the reception while Arden kept the dance party going. He WILL be hired again for my family & friends' future events. I can't say enough good things. Thank you, Arden!

I have done a lot of dance classes, and private lessons. Ballet, Modern, Jazz and a little break dancing. I wanted to do Hip-Hop. I was matched up with Yolanda. I couldn't not have found a better teacher. She is energetic, enthusiastic, encouraging ( sorry for the alliteration ) and knowledgeable. I may have done other dance work, but I had to rethink, find new ways of moving that were unfamiliar. In a very short time, after some hilarious struggles. I'm getting it. I wouldn't audition for SYTYCD, but I think now I can lay down some moves in a club. More to come for me, sticking with my girl, Yolanda!

Guro is an angel. My daughter loves her lessons. Guro is able to connect with my daughter through many genres of music. Last night, the pair had a blast working on a Korean hip hop song they found on line. I cannot say enough great things about Guro, she is pleasant, prompt, professional, and brightens the room when she walks in. Definitely two thumbs up.

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.
