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!

I highly recommend Kaleidoscope Band! They are fantastic! I have had the pleasure to see them several times at local venues in the Tampa Bay/Clearwater area and every time I have seen them play I have to get up and dance! Vikki has an amazing voice (and is gorgeous). Billy's vocals are awesome and plays the guitar like nobody's business! So if you are looking for a duo or trio that has a big sound, is great with the crowd, fun, exciting and really professional then I'd say Kaleidoscope Band is the perfect choice for you! R.L.

We love when Jah Movement comes to play at Bob Marleys in Universal City Walk. You will get a snippet of new music to the best classics of Reggae AND they throw in Old-School Hip Hop and R&B which leaves the crowd like WOW!

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

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.

    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.

    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.

        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.
