There is nothing NOT to like about Les. He was the best value I found for our wedding, but that did not deter from the service he provided. He worked with us to build a playlist and delivered. He not only plays what you want, but sings, interacts with you crowd and will even provide Karaoke if you want. Everyone loved him. Thanks for making our special day even more so Les.

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, and as a music major I wanted the best musicians for my wedding. When asking around about musicians Crystal was recommended by several people. She did an amazing job, learned the music as written, and got along with all the other musicians. I would recommend her to anyone who is searching for a great talented musician. Walking down the aisle is something I will never forget and neither will my husband! You are truly blessed with a great gift and thank you for making our day extra special! -Mrs. Parish

Joe was our officiant for our wedding . I was slightly nervous hiring someone I’ve never met before but I was assured after talking to Joe on the phone. He did a wonderful job for our ceremony and we had many complements from our wedding guests

Jack was friendly from the moment we started talking - easy to work and coordinate with - and put on a FANTASTIC show! He set the perfect atmosphere for our rooftop wedding weekend party, brought all of his own equipment, had it set up and ready to go and worked beyond well with our crowd! Thank you Jack for kicking off our awesome weekend!

Gulf Drive played at our friend's 50th wedding anniversary party of 20 people. They were fabulous. Billy plays the sax and two flutes - and sings. Dana also sings - they blend together extremely well. Very versatile and accomplished musicians, and easy to work with. They provided background music during cocktail hour and then dancing music later in the evening. We have heard a lot of groups before - they are right at the top.

One of my most fav bands. Especially when they bring the little boy Ky-Mani. If you hire them PLEASE ask for the son of the two lead singers he is quite the entertainer.

Our guests are still talking about how they enjoyed the music at our St Patrick's Day party! Wright put on a great show, playing a great variety of music. He arrived on time and played for longer than we contracted for. He even led some of our guests in some line dancing which was a big hit. Thanks Wright!

Mike has played for us on a number of occasions and each time left us wanting more! He is so talented and so entertaining. Plus he is just a really warm and friendly person. We own a restaurant and he has played there, our wedding and numerous parties and events over the 20 years we have known him. He has a wide range of genres and always plays my favorite, classic rock! He is an asset to your business.

    With equal ease this jazz group can crank out hot and sassy numbers as well as smooth mellow vocals by the indomitable Katt Heffner. I've watched this group play concerts at the Ringling Museum bayfront and intimate clubs in Sarasota. They always seem to be able to surprise me.

      We hired Mr. Jose Ortiz to play for our wedding reception. Our wedding was for approximately 150 - 200 people. Our guest are still raving about how fantastic a DJ he was. We had selected the music we wanted to hear and Mr. Ortiz delivered as promised. If you are in need of a DJ, Mr. Ortiz is your answer!

      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.
