I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.

I hired Eddie to work with my High School Son to assist him with the Jazz Band. Eddie was extremely helpful, patient and adjusted his schedule for my busy teen. I would highly recommend Eddie to someone looking for an excellent tutor!

LadyMarry's presence with the DJ, coordinator, videographer and florist allowed our wedding to flow so smoothly. It was a fantastic party. Our dance party went longer than most, but we had no problem dancing the night away with DJ Garrett! Not only is he great at his work, but he's the kind of guy we'd invite to our wedding anyway :) We are really happy that we found the whole team. You will be too!

We hired Tyler to play a 180 person cocktail party and dinner at Pelican Hill for a corporate event last Saturday. He was so good that the crowd wouldn't let him stop so we ended up hiring him for an additional hour! We wanted him to play more pop music versus more traditional jazz as we wanted an upbeat performance. He did an awesome job with his playlist and provided exactly what we were looking for. He worked the crowd by walking through the dinner tables while playing all types of genre. He had everyone up dancing including the CEO, not something you usually see from a one man sax player at a dinner event! He received more than 1 standing ovation. Received tons of feedback following the event from the attendees that it was their favorite part of the 3 day event. Would hire him again in a minute. Tremendous value for the cost.

Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.

BoomBox Heroes was one of the best decisions that we could have made for our wedding. They were accommodating to making their setlist to our desires. They offered fun outfit themes that we chose. I asked for some special requests, and they learned the 2 songs for us; both of which turned out great! When the big day came, they had top-quality sound equipment, lights, stage settings, and sound/light/video techs. It was a full-service for a very affordable cost! They even allowed me to come up and sing with them! There is no doubt that they were the hit of our wedding, and made it a party that would not be forgotten. As an individual that is very familiar with the music world and scene, I found BoomBox Heroes to be top-notch professionals, performers, musicians, and most of all-- A PARTY! I recommend them to the fullest!

My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.

    Jean-Paul taught my son Joey for about two years. His lesson plan was always clear but he still made it fun for him. Joey went away to school and continued to play while away (even joining a band!) I highly recommend Jean-Paul

    Hugo is very responsive to all my questions and answer it very quickly. Initially I was looking for a band but Hugo sent me email and I liked his video so I decided to hire him. It's 1 of the best decision I've ever made.Everyone at the party is impressed with Hugo. He is really a good singer and I'm really satisfied with his performance which is way better than his video. I will definitely hire him for future events. You hit a jackpot when you hire him so stop looking and just hire him!

    I had a summer jazz party at my house. Ken and his band were amazing. They played for hours, beautifully and even took requests. My friends still talk about how cool and how talented Ken and his band mates are. If you want to host an unforgettable party with unforgettable talent, I highly recommend Ken Weiner and his jazz band.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
