Scotty and The Riot were great! Very personable and attentive to the details of our requests. Punctual - set started right on time. Was an outdoor event and when a storm rolled up with 30 mins left in the gig, they quickly adapted and wrapped up the remaining 30 minutes indoors. Everyone at the event was very complimentary of the band. Would hire again in a heartbeat!

We have used JP on numerous occasions both for subdivision parties and private events at our home. He has a great selection of music and mixes live music in as well. He plays the guitar and sings and is enjoyable to hear. He engages the party and keeps things live! We would recommend JP to anyone looking for music and entertainment. He is also reasonably priced.

Derek Ferwerda is an incredible instructor. I've been a student of Derek's for many years, and the quality of instruction and the incredible amount of love he has for teaching and his students is unparalleled, and something you won't find anywhere else in the world; let alone the Southeast... I originally began with Derek as a guitar player, but after a while working with guitar he helped me find that bass guitar was my true calling. Since I began working with Derek as an amateur musician and just a kid with a dream, I have gone on to play in many local bands, record with other artists, and I've had the opportunity to share stages with some of the most incredible musicians you'll ever come across. What sets the Guitar Room apart from other schools is Derek's linguistic approach to learning and teaching music, and the very warm, loving, welcoming environment I have found with his community of students. He has an incredible dedication to his students, and will do anything and everything to help them reach their highest potential. When you come to the Guitar Room, you will find not only an incredibly talented and dedicated mentor and instructor, you will also find an incredibly supportive community of students and musicians that will embrace you or your child, and help them reach their potential as musicians and people. I couldn't recommend Derek Ferwerda and The Guitar Room any more. You won't find better anywhere!!!!

Where do I begin? We hired Jazz By Two for a reception event at our home and they were a hit. They were the perfect fit for the ambiance and the music was excellent. Immediately after contacting Billy he was professional, yet warm and friendly which is rare to find these days. We would definitely recommend Jazz By Two for any event!!

I hired Joseph for a birthday party in September and he was absolutely fantastic. I'm talking about more than singing and dj'ing the actual party. He was very patient and available to help with suggestions for the schedule and types of music to play each part of the evening. He truly has a unique repertoire. Don't pay for a DJ and a musician, pay for Joseph because he does it all!

Russ is the best! I got his number from a friend. He and his band were able to come play our garden party on super short notice. They were AWESOME! Great song selection, very talented players. Our guests were blown away! He is a great communicator and super easy to work with. We plan to have them back for our next party!

Mostai helped me with initiating the contact between me and my children's music instructor. Since I live on the border of metro Atlanta, I had a feeling that it was going to be a challenge to find a great pianist to teach my children how to play the piano. Mostai went above and beyond and found a great pianist--Lacie! Lacie is doing a wonderful job with teaching my children. My children are enthusiastic about learning to play the piano, and they are progressing to great accomplishments.

Karl did an amazing job at our wedding ceremony and reception! He pulled together a trio so we could have a small (and afforable) band at our reception and played a great selection of music. He was also very flexible with accomodating requests and customizing our playlist. I'd hire him again in a second!

We were extremely impressed with our experience with the Pete and Pete Band! They performed for 4 hours for a family and friends gathering of 80+ at our home. Multiple people inquired where I had found such a great band! I would highly recommend and will be hiring them for future parties.

BOOK THIS BAND NOW!! This will be the best and easiest decision you'll make. We just had April & her band play at our wedding and can not say enough good things about them! We booked April online and she was always friendly and quick to respond. We were confident she'd be good but she and the band surpassed all our expectations. They are all our guests are talking about!! They played at our ceremony, throughout cocktail hour and our dance party without missing a beat. They are one slick professional outfit of top musicians. If you want a fantastic band that will make the party, keep the party going all night, and do so with the utmost professionalism do not hesitate in booking these guys! You won't regret it! Thank you so so much!

We had Deb Bowman & The Big Love Band performed at RiverPointe Event Venues grand opening event in October 2015 near Montgomery, and it was such a blast. They played a variety of favorite songs all night long from swing to Latin all the way to blues, dance songs and rock! The crowd was thrilled! The band professional, fun, and such a pleasure to work with. Worth every penny! I will hire them again and again. In fact, Deb is singing for my birthday party next week! Deb Bowman has several combinations of her bands, from a solo artist with accompanist to a huge party band with brass. I've heard them all at various events. Buy all you can afford! The bigger the band, the bigger and better the party. They are not only accomplished world class musicians, they are ENTERTAINERS! Big difference. You get Both with Deb Bowman. Your event or club with have a pulse rarely experienced with other bands. I have followed her performances since 2006. Book early for the holiday season or you will be disappointed. Deb is also well connected with an excellent marketing system that can promote your event to thousands of contacts if you wish.

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.
