Sadly, I could only have one singing lesson with Lisa before having to leave for home in Canada. But the very generous hour we spent together was extremely helpful. I have issues with finding enough breath support to last through long musical phrases and Lisa showed me several techniques for building and strengthening support . She listened carefully to my needs and built upon my questions. Besides that, she's a lovely person with whom I think I could have created a warm musical relationship.

I prefer hiring from trusted sources/ word of mouth from friends, and this is how I found Randy. I am extremely happy we found him as our DJ; he was AMAZING! I had over 80 people at my kids birthday Rock Star bash and hired Randy to set the stage with lighting, karaoke and playing all the kids favorite songs with his DJ equipment. He rocked the house and the kids had a BLAST! I can not wait to hire him for our next gig whether it's for the adults or for the teens or kids. He planned thoroughly in advance and played all the kids favorites, his sound system was fabulous and he was very professional (and cool)!

The Well Wishers performed at my wedding on Jan/21/2017. They were absolutely remarkable in every way. They kept everyone dancing and entertained the whole time. They also acted as the MC to coordinate special dance requests and even the cutting of the cake. They are the complete whole package and they have large list of music for you to pick from. In our case they were even able to add a whole 3 piece horn section and a female singer to make it even more impressive. (They Do Fine on there own as well.) They often play at many establishments in the Jacksonville area and I now try to go out and see them as much as I can. Always a good time.

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.
