Cindy taught my two sons in a Let's Play Music class for young children. Wow, she is amazing! My children loved her, and learned so much. She had great energy and made each child in class feel special. Cindy was great at keeping the class engaged--quite a task with a class full of young boys! It was also a treat to listen to her lovely voice. My kids loved "Miss Cindy," and our next teacher couldn't quite live up to her. Whether for group classes or private lessons, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cindy.

We had Skip Johnson and his band, The Zippers, perform at our daughters wedding and reception last weekend. Skip played acoustic guitar at the ceremony and the band played at the reception. They are all great musicians and performers and definitely know how to keep a party going!! We had so many compliments from the guests and everyone loved their music and personal interaction with the crowd. Having the right band is a huge part in making a party a success – and Skip Johnson and The Zippers nailed it!

      I have booked entertainment in Southern California for the last 23 years and Mikole Kaar is one of my favorite musicians. He is talented on Saxophone, Piano, Vocal, cello, etc. as well as performance of all styles of music, jazz, standards, pop, Motown etc. He is professional and on time. I can always count on Mikole.

      I took a rare chance hiring a dj online and I'll say I was pleasantly surprised. Anwaar showed up to my event 2.5 hours early and once the event started, I didnt recognize my house. He completely turned it into a dance club. His choice in music catered to everyone on the dance floor from children to seniors. His event alone set the "wow" factor. I highly recommend him as a DJ to anyone in need. He is a great investment and I still feel I would've paid more for his services. He definitely lived up to his claims as "the best in the business" and a find like him is very rare. I'll be using him from now on.

        Allan Alper has played piano at several of my holiday parties and has an extensive knowledge of the American song book that entertained my many guests. All of my guests were very complimentary of his excellent piano playing and performance. I recommend him for your up coming party to entertain your guests. Carl Rigoli

          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.
