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!!!!

This band is awesome! I would highly recommend this group to anyone looking to hire a band for their Wedding, Birthday Party, Halloween Party, or main event. This band played for our 4th of July Party and rocked the house! They were the life of the party! So thankful I had this group to keep the night going strong. They cover hits from the 90's to now. They are sure to please a crowd of all ages. This group is professional. Shows up early for set up, and stayed to hangout. Definitely the band you want to book for your next event. These guys rock!

We hired the Cruzer band to play for my sister's 50th birthday party in Alpharetta. The band showed up in plenty of time to set-up and get everything ready before any guests arrived. They were very courteous and accomodating. They kept their volume at a good level and played almost every request that they got. I would recommend this band to anyone for their special event!

James Brooks, Lead Keyboard Player, was hired to play and organize a music band, for a Local Red Carpet / Black Tie Awards Show in August 2014. This event was held at the renowned Porter Sanford Performing Arts Auditorium, a 4 hour event, where over 300 people were in attendance. Our organization was extremely impressed with James Brooks’ professionalism, timely arrival and the ability to skillfully play in co-ordination with the entire event. During the closing of the event, the audience gave him and the band a grand round of applause. We were so delighted with James Brooks’ performance ability that we have already booked him for our 2015 event this summer.

      I would highly recommend The Wiseman Brothers. They are one of the best bluegrass bands around. You won't find a tighter band in the Southeast. Devon was very professional and responsive. Bluegrass fans and non bluegrass fans alike all loved them at our event. So much fun.

        Rich and the rest of his crew in the Moxie Band were unbelievable. Our wedding in Savannah, GA last night was a real party. Moxie rocked the house for four hours long. The dance floor was full all night. From my first call with Rich until the end of the reception, there were no surprises and no disappointments. Everything was done professionally. They request the bride and groom's playlist from an expansive repertoire of available songs. They were spot-on in all respects. As the FOB, I had little planning responsibility for this wedding, but I took charge of the band selection and never considered any band other than the Moxie Band. Believe me, call Rich for your reception. You will not be disappointed.

        Every song is well-rehearsed in order to capture the unique styling and characteristic sound of the original popular recording. This means that your guests will know which dance step is required within seconds after a song starts. That translates into hours of listening and dancing without boredom!

        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.
