We worked with Shea on the day of our wedding and Shea was AMAZING! Not only she is highly skilled & experienced singer/musician, she was super nice & easy to work with as she was always responsive, willing to work with us to select our wedding songs etc. She was amazing at reading the atmosphere of the room during the wedding, too. We would highly recommend her for any events :)

I recently had a back yard wedding in Carlsbad, Ca. Bill entertained my guests, by playing his guitar during the cocktail hour prior to my wedding ceremony. Last minute plans changed and I also needed him to play while I walked down the isle. He gladly obliged and stayed through out the ceremony. I didn't hear very much of what he was playing, as I was only present during the ceremony. According to my family and guests, his quality of work was excellent...thank you Bill!

I am a single father, and was faced with the daunting challenge of planning my daughter's wedding, and on a limited budget. I checked around and found that The Realm of Entertainment was the only service out of nearly twenty that I attempted to contact that were prompt in communicating back to me! Tom & Jose are extremely easy to work with, they communicate with integrity and some real world knowledge beyond just arranging a wedding. True professionals!! They were able to, in just a short period of time, create a masterpiece of a wedding for my baby girl that not only exceeded my expectations and would have taken me months to put together, they did it coming in under my budget, and kept all of the stress to themselves! Don't miss out on this company's brilliance! You deserve what these guys stand for, quality!

      I have booked entertainment in Southern California for the last 23 years and Mikole Kaar is one of my favorite musicians. He is talented on Saxophone, Piano, Vocal, cello, etc. as well as performance of all styles of music, jazz, standards, pop, Motown etc. He is professional and on time. I can always count on Mikole.

      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.
