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!

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 had the dinner hour under such ambience, it felt like we were in an expensive lounge! If I need a band, I will definitely be calling Jonathan again!!! *Ps. I had a last minute request for an additional song and they made it happen!!

Jamie dj'd at my wedding in 2012... it was great! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night... it was the marrying of very different cultures and he managed to play music for both sides that everyone enjoyed... He was professional throughout the process and made sure to find out what music was important for us to have played... I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you!

Tim was our DJ at our wedding back in September. I can't say enough good things about him. He was personable, funny, and very professional. We felt like we had known him forever! He always answered emails in a timely fashion, got any song we had requested for the wedding and even met us at the venue because he had not been there before. I highly recommend him for any event, a lot of fun!!

Dan played the perfect mix of music for our wedding in December 2015. We had him perform before the ceremony when the guests arrived and for our cocktail hour. Our affair was black tie, and Dan looked the part. We wanted a mix of classical music with more modern songs in a classic style and even a few video game songs performed classically (like some Zelda music). Everything we asked of Dan was performed to perfection. To this day (8 months later) one of the most mentioned parts of our wedding is Dan's piano. He helped transform our cocktail hour into an even more sophisticated, yet fun environment, which was exactly what we asked of him. I am sure he would be capable of performing at any level and with any set of asks. His flexibility in repertoire with his musical ability is outstanding.

I had Peter play my house party Family BBQ. He truly is a pro. He played q great variety of tunes and truly entertained our guests. He took requests and at one point had us singing along. He is the whole package and I would highly recommend. From my party, Peter ended up playing with a full band at a friend in Huntington. They thanked me for the recommendation. Jackie J.

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!

I hired Cleveland from thumbtack. I wasn't sure at first if I should call him because he is located in New York and we are in Connecticut. But Cleveland had no problem making the trip, and boy was it worth it. He worked with my husband and I to create a package for our wedding that fit our individual needs and our budget. I actually feel like I owe him money because you can't put a price on what an amazing job his company did on my wedding. Thank you Cleveland and Dashin Entertainment for creating great memories for us and our family and friends.

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.

The Red Hots are RED HOT!! These girls and guys are absolutely great! Not only do they play my Breast Cancer fundraiser every year in NYC (under their Breast Cancer battling superpower name the Hot Pinks!) My wife and I hired them to play our wedding, they were a HUGE hit. Whether playing originals or covers the Red Hots rock.

I hired the New London Big Band for my weekly live Jazz event in Hartford, CT. Not only were they very professional, they played an excellent show. It was so great that one of my recurring customers told me it was the best time they have ever had at the event, and they have been a recurring customer of mine for more than 6 years. I would highly recommend the New London Big Band to anyone that is looking for a great live Jazz act for any occasion.

      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.
