We hired Tucker to be our guitarist for our wedding ceremony. I highly recommend him if you are looking for entertainment in your event! He went out of his way to do rehearsals to make sure everything is on point. He is very easy to work with and he did an amazing job!

Aaron played music for our wedding. It could not have been more perfect. He played a lot of his own original songs, and also spent time with us figuring what would work best for the day. I can't think of anyone with a more seemless blend of talent, creativity, beauty, patience, and curiosity.

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.

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!

Wedding music was fantastic. Rob worked with us beforehand to chose the perfect songs for different parts of the ceremony. He was early and stayed until the last people left. Everyone commented on how beautiful the music was throughout. And he literally saved me by lending me his bowtie after my attempt to tie one failed. Highly recommend.

Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.

WOW! What an amazing band! We were absolutely blown away by these amazing musicians it is clear that they are all at the top of the field. We chose to book the 6 Piece with both male and female singers and boy! can they really really SING. They sounded amazing, looked fresh and fun and had such energy every single person at our wedding was on there feet even my dad who is 83. We had an absolute blast and everyone could not stopped raving about the band they asked if we stole them from American Idol!!!! I can tell you from the moment we were in contact they were communicative professional and handled everything, even thinking of things we haven't even thought of yet like lighting and sound requirements. The MC was charismatic, funny and charming and was able to tell our story with such class that my wife and I were in tears. We looked around for 6 months before choosing a band most great wedding bands were way way out of the budget, they were reasonably priced and for what you get which is one of the best bands i've ever seen at a wedding I actually think we should have been paying double or more like some of the bands we first looked at that weren't even as good. So thats my rant. Amazing. Blown Away. Memories for a lifetime. They do book up early were lucky we had our wedding on a Sunday so it wasn't a problem. If it was on Saturday we may not have been as lucky!

Hugo is very responsive to all my questions and answer it very quickly. Initially I was looking for a band but Hugo sent me email and I liked his video so I decided to hire him. It's 1 of the best decision I've ever made.Everyone at the party is impressed with Hugo. He is really a good singer and I'm really satisfied with his performance which is way better than his video. I will definitely hire him for future events. You hit a jackpot when you hire him so stop looking and just hire him!

I had the pleasure of hiring Michael for a corporate event. He was the sole entertainer for the evening in a rather large venue, and he brought the house down! He has a voice that belongs on American Idol or The Voice, deft guitar skills, and the charisma to charm anyone passing by. Everyone had a blast and the following day I did not stop receiving compliments about the amazing act I booked. Strictly speaking, Michael made me look like a genius. Michael is also very considerate, responsive, and easy to work with. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Whatever he quotes you, he's worth every penny, because you're basically getting Ed Sheeran + Stevie Wonder in one, at a fraction of the cost! My advice: don't hesitate to hire him because someday after he blows up you'll be glad to say you once hired Michael Barnum for your birthday party/wedding/gala.

JMV is amazing. We were without a band only two weeks before our wedding, and were considering a DJ until we found Malynda and John at JMV. They provided us with amazingly talented and friendly musicians for our wedding. In addition to the band for the reception, they also provided a guitarist for our ceremony and a piano player for the cocktail hour. Everyone was extremely professional and amazingly talented. They even learned new songs (in a very short time frame) that were important to us. We could not have asked for anything more, and would highly recommend JMV. All of our guests were dancing and complimenting the music. We've received so many texts and calls from our friends and family about how much fun the wedding was, and we know this would not have been possible without such great music. So, so impressed with JMV.

I used Ken's band at Beethoven Elementary's annual fund raiser. He and his bandmates came on time and played very good music in spite of some of the constraints of the venue. Everybody loved the music. I will certainly hire then again!

I hired Gaku and Dwayne to perform at my wedding ceremony. They were AMAZING!!!! It was a Catholic ceremony, so they had to learn a few new songs. It was as if they had performed those songs a million times- you would've never known that they had just learned them. They sounded so beautiful together and really added something extra special to my BIG day. The highlight was definitely "Ave Maria." I cried because it was the most beautiful version I had ever heard. Do yourself a favor and hire them for an event!

We are an upscale downtown hotel in Sacramento and have booked Capitol City Ensemble for special events and as lobby/bar entertainment many times over the last few years, including weekly during the summer months. We feel they bring something truly unique to the atmosphere of our hotel, their talent is really incredible. They've been professional, prompt, and gracious in every interaction. We are so impressed with them and hope to continue to book them for events and entertainment for years to come. They are an ideal choice for weddings, cocktail parties, holidays, or any other event where you want to create a truly special experience for your guests!

Absoulute has played for California Yacht Club's biggest regatta party two years in a row, and both times, the crowd wouldn't let them stop. The band was perfectly tuned in to the vibe of the crowd and everyone was dancing. As the organizer, they could not have made my life any easier. They were all super to work with -- on time, professional, easy going, and eager to please.

Dave was such a pleasure to work with. After doing extensive research on entertainment for my wedding, I finally ran across Dave's page on here and reviewed his work on his website and loved what I heard. I had a small wedding of about 22 close family guests but I wanted it to be special and he was very accommodating. He brought different instruments to set different settings for my party. I like to think of my wedding as a very glamorous party for close friends and he was such a pleasure. All my guests loved our entertainment...we had him for our ceremony and cocktail hour, during dinner and a wine tasting and a dance. When I met with him.....I requested him to play 3 songs and asked him to set the settings for the events that were taking place and he was fantastic all around...after trying to work with others, Dave was so great compared to the demands of other entertainers. He was great and very reasonably priced for the work that he provides....he such a talented man and am so thankful to have come across him and have him play for us.

    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.
