III Bones (Three Bones) is the soul, mind and art of the consciousness of all that is truly alive. Half of our proceeds go to Oxfam America. Biography Florida based Lo-Fi Blues Rockers, III Bones is steadily strengthening the spirits of now the East Coast of the United States and soon to be the rest of the world with their medicinal dose of driving-low ego grit that has the spirit and soul that would make James Brown a fan. "Word is spreading fast about III Bones, a new spirit-breathing, organic band launched this year in Ocala, FL. Call III Bones' music "Jivanmukta," an enlightened state -- assimilation of self-knowledge and liberation of spirit while living in human physical form. Victoria de Benedicty carried the vocals that night with "pure, engaging and lyrical scores" with Dalton J. Woodard on guitar and Curtis Haaker on percussion. Musically, the trio synthesizes a unique blend of psychedelic rock-and-roll and R&B soul. This manifests in a mysterious, calming experience for any contemporary listener. Essentially, III Bones belongs to the organic genre -- music of natural, percussive and acoustic-based instruments. Its roots are in music, natural and good for the soul. Named for the three bones of the inner ear that enable us to hear, III Bones aspires that its sound be "the truth, the soul, the body, and the screaming word of all that is pure." Victoria and Dalton are all about bringing a blend of willing idealism and spiritual hope to music making. III Bones' goal is world improvement, following a conviction that changing oneself is integral with changing the world. Their compositions and performances connect heart-to-heart. They convey an inviting sense of appeal that awakens the listeners to want to reach and stretch for something more hopeful than the human distress of an inherited world gone mad. In the band's words, "There are ones who are in dire need of someone to help them, and I am not talking about overseas; (we're) talking about your community. We are starting in the communities, helping one individual at a time, changing their heart to begin an effect to change all." "Our message is to enjoy each day to its full potential. Go outside and breathe clean air, stretch and eat. Be good to one another and keep a smile on your face, for a smile is contagious, whether the person with the frown knows it or not. Begin with yourself and others will learn the ways of happiness and tranquility." Recently, III Bones climbed to the top spot for Blues in Gainesville on the ReverbNation charts. Tracks are available on the official III Bones website including "Hidden Doorway," "What I've Become," "Day by Day," and "Faded." -- Arthur K. Burditt The band has performed at several festivals and at several nationally-renowned venues, such as opening for Yellow Red Sparks (LA) at The Masquerade (ATL), Jacuzzi Boys (Miami), Hank & Cupcakes (NYC), Reptar (Athens), Matt Pond PA (Philadelphia) and more!

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.
