•Absolutely loved the band…everything about it. You rocked the house, had people dancing the entire night, and the assortment of music was completely unreal. I walked in there, couldn’t believe people were dancing the entire night, and at the end, packed the floor again for the final songs. Your band learning the 1st dance songs was completely awesome too. True talent from every person of the band. The equipment, MC abilities, professionalism, flexibility was off the charts. Best touches – Dr. Dave getting me (the groom) to let me know about the last couple of songs, the introduction of the wedding party, and the real talent and energy that the band brought. Favorite songs – chicken dance, Shout, and everything in between. (Brian – Groom).See more

We live in Tampa, FL and hired the Jonathan Moody band (Jonathan plus 3!) for my husband's 50th birthday party. The band was the HIT of the entire party! All night long, our guests were telling us how amazing the band was, and we saw people that we have NEVER seen dance or get loose before get totally loose and dance like crazy on the dance floor! It was such a great time - we had about 120 guests from ages late 20's to late 70's and even 80's and EVERYONE loved the band and had a blast! Jonathan Moody band made the party!!! Then, when the party wrapped up, instead of high-tailing it out of there, Jonathan and his band stayed and chit-chatted with us for a while and just made us feel like old friends. TEN stars!!!See more

Lou Evans is one of the most talented persons I know. Many are aware of his success on the baseball diamond and his pro baseball experience. He continues to dominate on the mound today as a semi-pro all-star as he did in his professional, high school, and little league career. What is equally impressive is that he’s a very accomplished and equally talented song writer and singer. I come from a musical family, and I played in a few bands growing up. I’ve never witnessed a musician who can sing and play all genres. From rock to country, rhythm and blues to pop. It doesn’t matter, Lou crushes it. When you get a chance do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some of his National Anthems he’s done for some of the Bay Area professional teams. Always looking forward to seeing and hearing more magic from Lou.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 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.

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.
