Coventry exceeded our expectations. He was amazing and the highlight of our wedding ceremony and reception. Every guest commented on how talented he is and his music was perfect for the event. Coventry played two very special songs that I requested for our ceremony to surprise my new husband. All were moved to tears. Coventry was so flexible, working with all along the way as the ceremony and reception plans came together even with my last minute changes and requests. We would absolutely recommend Coventry - he has such versatility from love songs to fun dance vibe...he had our twenty-something guests dancing as well as our seniors. He can play something for everyone! Thank you! You made our wedding so memorable. Cheryl and George Kish

We loved having Jerry perform at our wedding in Austin, TX., he made the reception so fun for everyone and played our first dance song beautifully. Jerry is a born entertainer and that fact that he loves what he does makes the party that much more fun! We would definitely recommend that you have Jerry perform for your next event.

Mark was the guitarist at our Beaxh Wedding and reception on Marco Island. Mark was phenomenal and played beautifully during the wedding and kept the audience very well entertained during our cocktail reception. We had many people compliment him to us saying how he added that special extra to our wedding. In hindsight, it is hard to imagine the event without him and I cannot recommend him highly enough! I would absolutely use his services again!!

Sudden Valley played at our wedding reception and it was the best decision we made. They were so easy to work with. The most special moment from our reception was our first dance. Sudden Valley learned and played our song and it made the moment so personal and intimate. Our guests commented through out the night and since the wedding about how memorable and amazing the band was. Everyone loved the uniqueness of having a wedding band and Sudden Valley was the perfect band for our night. Without a doubt I would hire Sudden Valley again.

    What a voice! I have hired Marly for my wedding and so many of my guests asked me "Where did you find her? She is soooo good!". She had been referred by a friend of mine who hired her with her band for a corporate event and they were very impressed. I didn't have their budget to hire the entire band, but I called her and she was ready to come by herself. I must admit that I was a little stressed about it but she did an amazing job. She had people on the dance floor non-stop and everybody liked her a lot. I'm sure I will see her again in the few next weddings, and I'm very happy about it!

    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 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.
