DJ Dan was GREAT! He was on time, well dressed and a professional. The music/light was great. The kids/teens really enjoyed the music/dancing and singing (they are normally bored in party for adults). The oldies enjoys the music and danced with the younger ones too. The photo booth was a hit too. Dan was also very accommodating and was willing to stay beyond the agreed time with out charge. He was also very interactive with the kids and teen. Even the Band singers danced during their break! All of this on a really good price deal. My family really like his service and want to extend our thank you for a job well done. You are definitely on our list on our next parties (and our friends).

I have been playing guitar for around 20 years, mostly self taught. Over the years, I have tried out various lessons (online, multiple teachers, etc). Never have I experienced such an organized, thoughtful approach to learning your instrument than with Jason Bond. I've been with him for around 6 months. He can cater to your needs, but I prefer to follow his lead. It is like going to your own private music school (Jason is studying for his PhD in music). I am covering the basics of jazz and improving my theory, but also improving my blues/rock abilities. Jason will end your search for the ultimate guitar/music teacher! Also a great guy, thoughtful person, whom I now consider a good friend.

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

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!!

Crystal Image - that says it all. I have experienced the Band multiple times. They are great musicians but not that alone. They can feel what the guests like. They are masters on their instruments and also have great voices. You can feel with John that his mentor was Willie Nelson. It is no problem for them to get the people dancing and staying entertained a full evening. We enjoyed them at our Stammtisch El Dorado, at the Muenster Ranch in Ione twice, at my husband's birthday party and it is crazy to say - but I cannot wait for my next big birthday to get them again. But we are a large group - so the chances are big. We wish them the best. Moelli de Boer, Camino CA

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.

Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!

About

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.
