The crowd was especially pleased with the band and several even asked where they could get in touch with them to hire them for other events.

A friend of mine referred me to Freedom Music Academy because I wanted to learn to sing and play piano at the same time and I didn't know where to start! I did my research and was so impressed by the teacher Mr. Wicks that I had to schedule my first lesson. When I did, I was blown away by what I was taught and how my voice sounded even after one lesson that I decided to go full blast and learn BOTH piano and voice. After some lessons and much help and direction from both Yohance and Angela, I am now a Tampa Bay "star". I do shows every week thanks to Angela putting together my band and booking us at great places, I have gotten 1st place in multiple competitions and just this month auditioned for the final season of American Idol and got through the first 3 rounds! I owe this all to Mr. Wicks for helping my real voice unleash! I had no idea I had piano talent as I do and I am forever grateful. Thank you both for pointing me in the right direction and helping my dreams come true. I love Freedom Music Academy. Highly Recommend to EVERYONE!

Chris, Kirby, Mike & Marc I can’t say enough about these 4! They arrived super early, w/the rain they were super flexible. Their music list was the best ever. We had a band that usually plays at our party but w/one being sick we needed a new band. I was a little nervous finding someone w/out listening to them perform first. From the moment that Chris the Drummer contacted me I was at ease. He kept in contact w/me, understood my request, etc. Throughout the night we had so many of our guests coming up and asking where we found the band and how amazing they were. I can’t thank them enough for the great performance. People are still asking one week later where we found them. I can’t wait to have another party just so I can book them. You wouldBe crazy not to book them for your next event.

Tropigroove performed for my 40th wedding anniversary on May 28th, 2016. While we were eating, the band played lots of beautiful slows, kind of jazzy songs from their deep repertoire. After the speeches were over, the band took my guess back to the 70s playing some of the popular songs of that decade. The saxophonist leaves you with the sound to want to hear again, the young keyboard player plays with the crowd, he knows his craft. I recommend that you hire Tropigroove for your next occasion, whether you need the band for a cocktail or a dance party you'll get your money's worth. Jerry & Michelle

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.

Wright Still is one of the most talented musicians that I have had the pleasure of working with. He is professional, dependable, courteous and loves what he does. I had the pleasure of working with Wright for several months while I was in Florida and I would not trade that experience for anything. I believe that any production would benefit greatly from Wright being a part of it.

My guests and I were treated to great entertainment over the weekend. I hired Peter to perform for my husbands birthday party. We had several conversations before the party, as I wanted to make certain that he touched on some of my husbands favorite songs and artists. Peter was very accommodating. He even learned some new songs for our party. Peter also took requests and tried to accommodate several of my guests song requests. He really covers so many styles of music. It was a perfect evening and I am very happy I made the best hire for our party. I highly recommend Peter for any type of function that requires a talented singer and guitar player, that sounds like a full band.

    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.

    I was looking for a band that could entertain my guests who were aged between 45 and 70. Wow! Dream class was the perfect choice! They were the life of the party as they played all the old songs we were very familiar with. There was hardly any room on the dance floor as the band kept the crowd dancing all night. Also liked the way they kept the audience involved with their sing-along games and various contests. Great sound and lighting too. I can't wait to hire them again for our next big event!

    Robert Plates is one of the finest guitarists I've heard. As I'm not a musician myself, I cannot knowledgeably address his expertise, but as a music lover, I most certainly can avouch for the listening pleasure that Rob brings when he is playing. His exuberance and obvious pleasure when he is performing is infectious and forces you to listen to his fine mastery of his instrument. In a large group, clearly his contribution to the total sound of the ensemble is significant. He has a talent which is heartfelt. I have used Rob for my private parties and have been following his music career. Don't miss any opportunity you have to hear Rob play whether it's solo, jamming or with a noted band.

      I really don't want to play at your event. Not interested at all. > A lifetime as a musician with a penchant for avoiding "real work", the slow spiral downward started at the tender age of 13 in Salem/Portland, Ore., where he played with numerous bands. He opened for The Shangri-Las, Beau Brummels and War, before he detoured off into a solo one-man band project opening for Thomas Dolby and Bruce Hornsby. He also performed on ads for Nike, etc. Still, survival dictated new strategies as he again changed into a solo pianist playing in hotels and 12 years in the cruise industry. He quit just about the time they stopped hiring him. Through out all of it, he kept a private life of composing and recording. "It's the most fun I can think of having in a day," he says. It is no longer a question of achieving success. I'm compelled to do it." See the Videos. Attilio 777 Subscribe, maybe. Share, maybe.

      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.
