I was looking for a teacher via Skype. Ended up Dyce was 15 minutes from my house. Lol! I play in a local cover band her in Fort Lauderdale. I was stuck with the same thought process towards the guitar for years. After the first lesson Dyce fixed 50% of my problems. Really! I've grown ten fold through his instruction. I recommend him highly to anyone who wants to learn guitar. He is a Master at his craft.

The CK Band did an outstanding job for our reception. They arrived on time and played as scheduled. The attendees enjoyed the variety of music the band was able to cover. I wanted to commend the band - our event was held at a facility where we did not know what the parking fees would be. We made arrangements to pay the fees in cash ahead of time. When the band arrived - they alerted us that they were able to park in a free area and did not need to accept the cash. Not many bands would have done this and I commend CK and the band on their integrity. Book them - they are as good as they are honest!

Date of wedding: 6/10/17 The best decision we made was to hire The Ignite Band! We took our time checking out bands and without a doubt they were top notch from beginning to end. Every email and phone call was answered and Chris made sure every request we had in song selections were performed. Our family and friends complimented us on the music all night! My feel still hurt from all the dancing but I'm still smiling : ) Thank you guys for being awesome!

El Dub made our party!! My guests couldn't stop talking about how great he was for days!! He exceeded our expectations, and has such a unique and exciting style. We had him playing outside, and my friends inside thought he was a cd, and wanted to know who he was. When they realized he was outside, playing live, they were blown away! He played a lot of covers, which I wanted, but even his original music was SO good! Not only did my guests love the entertainment, but now they are fans!

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.
