The most responsive person I have ever had the pleasure to work with (which is so very rare these days)! Thank you for your professionalism, your responsiveness, and your work, Scotty. You were a pleasure to work with and I had nothing but compliments for you and your band. And that's with a picky crowd! Thanks again for coming out to play for our Killer Creek Harley-Davidson family. I would definitely recommend you to others who are in the market to hire a band. Cheers!

Thank you Steven Charles for a perfect event, you made it shine! Jeff Wright Daytona Beach News-Journal 770-289-6122

We have seen JP perform at local restaurants and clubs and hired him for a class reunion. He is a lot of fun and enjoys getting the crowd involved in the act whenever they are willing. He is quite talented and can sing and play a variety of music. His set up makes the audience feel like they are listening to a full band. We believe you will be equally impressed and highly recommend him for your next event!

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!!!!

    From Christie: When my son Joey decided sophomore year that he wanted to take up clarinet with the goal of joining marching band the next year, we knew he had alot of work to do! Mr. Derringer worked with Joey on short- and long-term goals, and provided excellent instruction and mentorship to get him there. Joey has made so much growth in the year he has been working with Mr. Derringer. He's ready to join the band! From Joey: Mr. Derringer is an excellent teacher. He knows what he's talking about and has a clear understanding of the clarinet. He is fun to talk to and makes it easy to understand the concepts we're working on.

      Hiring Greg Shearer and his band was one one of the best decisions my wife and I made in planning our wedding. Greg met with us before the big day to see if we had any special requests and to go over the schedule of events during the reception. It was nice to know that after hiring Mr. Shearer we didn't have to worry about audio or the entertainment. Thank you for making our wedding day the best it could be.

        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

        There are NO WORDS that can adequately convey how happy I was with the performance. I had an intimate dinner party and needed the volume to be low. They NAILED it! Her voice is like a warm set of silk sheets you just want to wrap yourself in. The band was AMAZING. Guitar, keyboard and drums. The website asked me how it could have been better. I suppose if a rainbow magically appeared and unicorns ran up it then it would have been better but I really can't fault them for the lack of magical rainbows. There were fantastic memories made that night that will last forever. You just can't beat that. They will be hired again...and again. P.S. My date said it was her best Valentine's Day ever. Can't tell you what that means to (and for) me! :)

        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.
