Nick and his team of professionals were out of this world amazing from start to finish on the day of our Wedding. They were there on time and Nick had made me feel at ease from the moment I met him through Thumbtack. He is an amazing DJ, Entertainer, Businessman and overall wonderful person to be around! Nick made me feel so comfortable from the time we started communicating through Thumbtack that once I connected with him my decision was made to go with him and his team of professionals for my Wedding day for DJ services, Photography and Videography. Look no further ladies and gentleman!!! If you want the experience of a lifetime with someone who is going to be attentive to your needs and make you feel like the King and Queen of your day than hire Nick!!! He is professional yet warm, talented and experienced in the realm of DJ services as well as entertainment. He sang Frank Sinatra at my wedding and he was a head turner… Don’t let the most amazing experience of a lifetime be taken care of by anyone else. I truly cannot say enough to express my pleasure and amazement with Nick and his team and how they made my dream wedding come to life. Thank you Nick! You’re the best!

Scott is an incredible musician and a true pleasure to work with. If you're looking for music for your wedding or other event, look no further and book Scott right now. He is very responsive, kind, fair and so easy to work with. He did piano covers of 3 of our favorite songs for our wedding ceremony that were the most beautiful songs we could have ever hoped for, we cried just listening to the quick demos he made for us. Then he, and 3 of his other jazz musicians, played for our outdoor cocktail hour and killed it! People came up to us all night, and still continue to do so 3 days after our wedding, to say how amazing the jazz band was. He is a true talent, visionary, and perhaps most importantly, especially in the wedding industry, a truly good person that wants you to have the most special day of your lives and goes above and beyond to make it so.

Gary is one of the most talented people I have ever met!! His musical talent and years of experience make working with him very special. I am one of his "older" students and I am thrilled to be a part of one of his bands. Gary provides all students the chance to perform many times during the year which enhances the learning experience. The performances also create a strong and supportive bond among students and family. Because Gary is skilled at so many different instruments and voice, there is truly something for everyone. And, he has a good sense of humor :)

Spencer and Sequoia brought the soundtrack to our wedding. Seeing and hearing them play live for our reception was a treat for our guests and one the highlights of the night. Their music is beautiful, modern, unique and leaves everyone wanting to hear more. We didn’t have to worry about any of their setup, they came with everything they needed and added zero stress or complications to our wedding planning. They are professional to work with and trustworthy. We loved to have one of their original songs as our first dance! They made our special day even more unforgettable. All we have to say is a big thank you for putting life into the music at our wedding. Levi & Leslie Ballard

We hired Chris Hamel Productions for our wedding on July 3 at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. We planned our wedding from halfway across the country, and Chris was accommodating and exceptionally helpful at every turn. We met with him just once and knew he was the perfect fit. He was personable and genuinely interested in what we wanted for our special day. He even edited a song we selected for the father-daughter dance to remove one line that we didn’t want, and the song sounded amazing. On the day of the wedding, we were running late and had Chris change up the grand entrance at the last minute. He came through for us in a big way, staying calm and making last-minute adjustments with no problem. Everything during the wedding ceremony and reception went smoothly, and Chris made us feel comfortable even though we were stressed. We are so glad we hired Chris to be the DJ for our wedding. The songs he chose after talking to us about our likes and dislikes were great. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and a number of our guests said that Chris was the best DJ they’d ever experienced at a wedding. We agreed. It was a truly special day.

Chris was the DJ for our wedding yesterday and did a great job. Everything went so smooth and he helped a bunch of people get onto the dance floor with some good music! He was really flexible and able to roll with whatever happened. We planned on only 2 speeches but when my dad decided last minute to give one as well, Chris saw my hand motion to lower the music and got it immediately. He also did a great job with the ceremony music and the uplighting! Everyone complimented us on the music we had for the ceremony. We had a great time, thank you Chris!!

I hired musicians from EKM to sing at my wedding ceremony and was absolutely delighted that they were also able to bring a string quartet to my cocktail hour and play for my reception. It saved me the hassle of hiring three acts and they did all of it for a very fair price. They also kept in contact with me and invited me to meet their performers before the ceremony so I would be completely at ease. They were fun and personable and I would work with them again.

    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.
