Billy is an amazing Vocal teacher and is the COMPLETE package! In today’s world, you need to be more than a one trick pony. It’s not enough to be a great singer; you need to connect with your audience. In order to do so, you need to develop other skills to get you there. My daughter Samantha has taken lessons in other studios and has learned some valuable skills. However, my biggest concern was that she was not getting the opportunity to hone in on other skills that go hand in hand with be a singer; such as microphone technique and performance skills. Billy is amazing at analyzing the exact needs of his students. He has a great personality which makes it easy for his students to feel comfortable with him; in turn that builds the desire for them to want to learn. When you take lessons with Billy, you are not just singing the same song week after week with a back-track or doing a sing along with a piano. He offers so much more. He teaches his students how to relate to a song in their terms (age appropriately) which builds a passion for the student from within (sing with meaning from the heart). He teaches students how to develop their range and has each student learn to sing all forms of music. In a short period of time, my daughter has had a complete transformation. She has developed her range, learned how to deliver a song in a more powerful way (breaking down a song from start to finish & when to emphasize the high points & when not to) has developed microphone technique and has become an amazing performer. All of these skills have contributed to a significant improvement in her self-confidence! Billy’s experience as a singer, actor, dancer & performer (in many different types of venues) makes him the complete package. The combination of these skills are truly not something that is offered in any studio that we have attended or considered going to.

Hi, my name is Lisa Carter and I am a Cher Tribute Artist/ Celebrity Impersonator. I have been in the tribute industry since 2009 and have worked diligently perfecting my craft to make this into my full time career. I have hired professional sound and light engineers, DJ's, dancers, musicians...the list goes on and on. Depending on what type of venue I am hired for, I am available with a live band or tracks for my gigs. Over the years I have hired less than competent dj's, until I feel upon Chris Hamel and his production company. He is my first choice, "go-to" guy who provides me with above standards in sound, lights, sound equipment....you name it, he's got it! He is also a musician, singer/ guitar player..so he "gets it"...in every sense of the phrase. I am passionate about my work, my shows, my costumes, my sound...and when he's running the soundboard, I know my show will excel to its highest potential. I feel extremely blessed to have him on my production team...in addition to that...he is always early for set-up, soundcheck,organized, and understands the mechanics of a tribute artist singing live and delivering only the best!! kudos to Chris Hamel for his professionalism and attention to details. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding specialist DJ...or anyone looking for a great soundperson who really cares about the end product.Overall experiences...is there anything ABOVE 5?,,,that's Chris Hamel.

I have seen Malorie's live performance with her band Soul Be It at Patchogue Theatre and her vocals and stage presence are outstanding. I honestly can say Malorie is one of the best vocalists on Long Island. I always recall that particular show where she opened for well known '70's Disco' artists. I really enjoyed her stage to audience connection. Malorie covers of a wide range of music genres including Disco, Funk, Motown and current dance tracks. Very impressive.

Kristin is a fantastic teacher! She is very devoted to her students, and was the first teacher to help me transition from classical singing to musical theater. I always use the way she taught me to warm up through my resonances...it is efficient and fool proof! Kristin is a treasure in an industry that can be a challenging milieu for young singers!

I am taking lessons with Mr. Lamb for singing and acting at the studio in South Windsor. I love his approach and techniques when it comes to singing and the advice he gave me for improving the monologues really helped. I always look forward to coming to the lessons and love working with him!

I contracted with Rorie Kelly to perform music at two events on Staten Island, NY sponsored by a non-profit organization. She was extremely responsive to performing in two different types of environments (one very large all-ages festival and one more intimate performance for a 21+ audience). She was professional throughout the contracting process and at her actual performances. She arrived early and was responsive to all venue and organization requests. The audience loved Rorie's performances on both occasions. You can tell that Rorie is able to genuinely connect with audiences to create a special experience for everyone listening, regardless of the venue. The non-profit organization and members of the audience have both requested Rorie's return for future events, which she has done under another individual's coordination. I would highly recommend Rorie Kelly as a performer at any type of event you may be putting together, she is a joy work with and her performances are wonderful!

    My husband and I were guests at a wedding for my friend's daughter and we thought Emotion was fabulous! They had energy, the lead female singer's voice was so true to the original artist's and the band was great! The music selection was also spectacular and I know they assisted with it. I'd see them again any day!

    Lyghtin Up and their catalog of classic rock songs are unmatched by any tribute band out there. The singer had me believing I was listening to the actual band! Would hire again and definitely recommend for your musical gatherings.

    I hired the potentials for my sisters 60th birthday party after hearing the band play out a few times at other venues... I love the wide variety of music that was played and the singer was especially fun and engaged with the crowd ... Everyone was up and dancing and having a great time... I would definitely recommend the Potentials and can't wait to see them out in the future.

    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.
