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).

This band is definitely the best performance band that I have seen in the Sacramento area. The vocalists and the musicians are amazing, and being involved in music myself, I consider BluPrynt a band that I look up to and would love to continue working with in the future.

3-Style DJs

    Hairbears & Minitrucks. That's the era of Mobile DJ'ing... I was born & raised in Hawai'i but I moved to San Jose, CA in 1987... Primetime for the SF Bay Area to put what is now known as "Turntabilism" on the map. The Mid 80's thru the Mid 90's were easily the glory days of mixing and scratching and playing the jams for all the party people. 3-Style Attractions were one of the pioneers of the whole DJ movement, culture and Hip Hop as we know it. Call me biased but Dave "Dynamix" is a good friend of mine, so my review may be partial to him and his crew... But I guarantee that if you ever hear them spin, you'll agree with me 100% that they're one of the best DJ crews around... Like I said, they've been in the game since ever since... and they keep going...and expanding. When I first started hanging out with them, they had branches in San Jose, San Francisco & San Diego. They now have a few DJ's in Hawai'i as well. What guarantees their success is their professionalism, innovative sound & lighting and of course their mixing skills as well as their vast knowledge of todays hits and yesterday's jams. I've seen them do Weddings, School Dances, Frat/Sorority parties, Private parties, Showcases, Talent shows, Fashion shows, etc... You name the gig, they've done it. The mobile DJ game has evolved since the mid 80's and so have they. So, to sum it up: If you ask me, I'm gonna recommend 3 Style Attractions for your next party, dance, wedding, whatever... I know them personally as well as professionally. They're one of the best crews around. If you decide to sleep on them and hear about them rockin' the club or someone's party later...don't say I didn't tell you so... "Just some G's throwin' up some m*thaf*ckin' 3's in the air"

    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.

    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!!

    We hired Doug Martin to play live background music at our home for a fundraiser. He played for 4 hours on a Friday night. Many of our guests complimented how great he played. He had a well rounded play list. In addition to being an excellent musician, he was extremely professional. He arrived approximately 30 minutes before the party to set up, so that he would be prepared for when our guests arrived. He even brought two different tuxedos and asked which one we would prefer so he would match our decor. I would absolutely hire Doug again and would happily recommend him to anyone. Doug was so good that one of our dearest friends hired him on the spot to play at her upcoming wedding.

    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.
