Summer performed for a small group of us and we were all very impressed and very happy with how it all went. I had asked her to blend in some 90's bands into her repertoire (my wife's favorite music!) and the choices were fantastic. She arrived early, played far longer than we had originally allowed time for (which was great) and was a very pleasant and easy person to get along with and communicate with. I'd hire her again in a heart beat.

I was so lucky to have found Damien to teach my young son to play the guitar! My son had never played before, but Damien was able to have him playing real music in a few short weeks. Damien has an amazing ear for music and has been teaching my son to play all of his favorite video game tunes. Also, my son looks forward to sharing the antics of his weekly routine with his ultra cool rock star guitar teacher, and Damien is always patient enough to listen ;-)

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!

We hired Mr. Varnell for our wedding and could not have been happier with his performance! Not only a true musical talent, but an honest professional who can walk you through the "in's and out's" with ease on an already hectic day. I was so happy we did not hire a tacky DJ or the same old organ/piano player for our wedding...but instead brought the elegance and uniqueness of the saxophone. We received so many compliments from our guests. Would most definitely hire him again!

One of the best decisions I made for our wedding was to hire About Music Pro for my wedding. From start to finish, it was an amazing and stress-free experience. Right after we met Gary (owner) both my husband and I knew they was the right fit for us: relaxed, fun and helpful. And we were right! The dance floor was full the entire night - with everyone from our 5-year-old niece through to my 90-year-old grandpa. They was super helpful in getting us ready for the big day and they were a star during the ceremony and reception(creating the exact feel we wanted). I would hire About music Pro again in a heartbeat. So, so, so amazing!

Reckless was the host band for my wife's recent surprise birthday party. They were professional in every way. Kim was always responsive to texts and emails as the date got closer. On the night of the event they were an absolute pleasure. So many of the attendees were impressed with their set list and musicality. I would highly recommend them as a classic rock cover band.

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.

Ron and his musicians were outstanding!! I hired them for a '40s Big Band Pary for 2 hours and did the deliver! They were very much accommodating to our residents and the staff. Very upbeat group of men who sang and danced with our residents, which made all the ladies very happy!The music was spot on and made us all feel like we really were in the 1940s. Very happy with the performance and their attitudes, absolutely one of the best!

We were so glad we chose this band for our wedding. They were spectacular from the solo guitar entrance music, hosting the event, to closing the dance-floor down late night. I don't know how they kept the energy up for the whole night but they played till the very end. They definitely made our big party complete! PS -- I don't like Journey but the band was so good even I sang along!

    Drew was the DJ for my mother's 90th birthday party and he did an awesome job! Played lots of the songs my mom loved from the 40's and 50's at the perfect volume before and during dinner- not too loud that we couldn't converse, but loud enough to enjoy. Just right! After dinner, he started throwing in some 70's and 80's rock and got the crowd up and dancing. Even Mom got up and danced a bit! Everybody had a great time, in large part to the way Drew could read the crowd. Would definitely use Drew again!

      Jordo makes his own music which is amazing and also plays covers! I loved having him at my venue. He can perform any song you want. I have never heard anything quite like him! He uses his loop pedals to make one guitar sound like a huge band. I can liken him to is Ed Sheeran. He is reasonably priced but there is no way he will be be able to keep his prices so low for so long. He can perform for anything. Weddings, shows, parties, and just about anything. If you call him he would love to help you out!

      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.
