Harley and Shery have a music and recording studio right next to Johnny's Guitar Shop. That is where all the lessons take place. Gianni has been with Harley for about 3 years now, I think, and loves it so much that his week is not quite right if he can't go. Both Luca and Robbie have lessons there too (guitar and piano). We "occupy" a good chunk of Tuesday afternoon and I completely trust them with my boys' musical upbringing. Harley teaches the instruments and I take lessons with Shery. Shery is the voice coach of The Music Factory and brings years of experience to each lesson. My voice has improved tremendously with her gently guiding me. Both of them are in a band called "Shery & the Psychodelics". They have their own website under that name. It is totally worth your babysitter to go and see them, 'cause they sure know how to rock da house :-) They are so "into" music that they often go over the time (if there's no appt after), just because it's fun for them. The approach is artistic (as apposed to strictly from a book with homework etc) - they really try to let the kids "feel the music within you".

After talking to the band and hearing some of their songs, I'm certain Funky Tim and The Merlots will be the right fit for our event. Great communication with the band, and we'll even get to sample their talent on March 11th at Woodbridge Crossing! Looking forward to partying with the band!!

I am an elementary Spanish Immersion school teacher and my team and I planned a winter celebration really last minute. Rigoberto and his band was really flexible and were fantastic at the event. They had great interaction with the crowd and even played the songs we requested. I am really pleased with the speedy responses and easy way to make payments on his website. Rigoberto has a very professional way of managing his band and would recommend them to everyone and definitely use them again!

Larry's a great guy and great drum instructor. We always have a blast during my lesson and he's taught me quite a bit over the last year or so that I've been taking lessons from him. He plays in many local bands and different types of music so it doesn't really matter what you want to learn on the drums, Larry will be able to teach you.

    We are a trop rock group. We are Michael Sea & Island Fever. Nationally recognized singer/songwriter, Michael Sea has been writing and performing songs with a tropical/nautical theme for the past 25 years. A contemporary of genre touchstone for Jimmy Buffett, Michael interpolates his own personal spin on Buffett and other classics into his set. Michael's vast catalog of original songs tell stories, both true and fanciful, evoking exotic locales and bringing to life colorful characters like Toucan Bill. The music masters of Island Fever complete the sound combining a driving rhythm section and tight harmonies. Island Fever features the talents of Bryan Weiss on bass, Don Parsons on drums, Gordon Schaaf on percussion and JJ Jenkins on keyboards. We have performed at countless festivals, fairs and stadium shows, including opening for Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer's many times. For larger, stadium-type venues, the band brings out the full compliment for that your-face-is-in-the-music sound with up to 12 musicians.

    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.
