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.

We love Paul! He has made such a strong connection with our son and teaches according to each child's individual pace and readiness. Our son is so proud of his abilities- he stops to play his music every time he walks past our piano and has gained confidence through recitals and performing for family and friends. Thank you, Paul!!!

I hired Korby to play live music at our country club's bar for a Friday Night and I couldn't have asked for a better musician! From the moment I put in a request for a musician to play this gig Korby reached out to me. His professionalism over the phone is what got him instantly hired for the gig and the fact that he delivered such a fantastic performance is what is going to get him booked for future gigs by us. While Korby was a new face playing for our country club he will soon be recognized by our Members for future performances. By the end of the night our Members were giving Korby their numbers and asking him to text them when he will be at the club playing again. Wonderful person, beautiful music and an excellent individual to hire.

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!!!!

    I use to live in the same neighborhood as David so it was a no brainer to take lessons from him. He is a very talented guitarist and composer. He is very patient and breaks things down where they are easily understood. I highly recommend him.

    Honey Bee is the right name for this amazing school because talent congregates there, works together and the outcome is just amazingly sweet. Erik and Elise, Honey Bee's owners, are amazing and accomplished musicians in their own right and, as such, they identify and bring out each child's individual talents and gifts. Talent is attracted to them because they do an amazing job bringing out the best in each of their students. Their students excel, both individually and as a group, because Erik and Elise have built much more than a music school. They've built a community that thrives on music and performing and a family that cherishes each of it's unique members and supports one another as everyone progresses, grows and blossoms. The proof is in the pudding (or the Honey, if you will). One only needs to look as far as the amazing group of artists that Honey Bee has already cultivated. Honey Bee is a school that has the caliber to develop true "professional grade" musicians and. If one has any doubt, one need only go as far as attending one of their performances!

      I am now a three time best selling author. I had a book singing party on july 30th 2016. When I tell you this band got down. I mean they were perfect. On time and very professional. I don't think I could have found a better band. I will hire this woman and her band a thousand time over again and I look forward to having them at my next book signing event. I love them. They are now my family. I would recommend them to any and everyone. So friendly and witty. Book them now. You will not regret it. My name is Author Mario Lattimore by the way

      I hired David and his band for a birthday party, and it was awesome. We were on our feet all night. The playlist went from old school r&b to light rock with everything else in between. We gave requests and they were added to the set. The band was professional but fun. I loved that they kept the crowd involved. I'm sure I'll use David again, and I've referred to several people. You wont be disappointed!

      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.
