I brought Clay in from St. Louis to Kansas City to DJ after the live band at our wedding reception. He is a great DJ and knows just how to navigate different types of audiences and groups and he always can figure out exactly what song to play next to keep everyone happy and excited. He is always on time (early) and his work is always consistently top notch... otherwise why would I bother bringing him in from St. Louis right? I would recommend "City" Clay Pentland to anyone, especially if you are trying to throw a memorable party. Despite the awesome 8 piece band we had to start, our guests are still talking about the DJ and after party we had at our reception.

Matt played guitar and sang at a celebration of life for my father. His voice is amazing! Many of the guests commented on how good he was after the service was finished. I highly recommend him and will hire him again if I am in need of a musician.

I have had two lessons with Doug. On lesson one he taught me to tune my guitar by ear; a thing I NEVER thought possible. Doug has a unique and effective way of teaching, which happen to parallel my needs as a student. His competency as a music/guitar instructor are evident; I suspect due to his elevated levels of talent, experience, and knowledge. I am certain that in a year, my proficiency as a guitarist will elevate to the point I will be able to join a good band to have fun making music. Thank You Doug.

    Rob was awesome in each category. He responded quickly, played non-stop for 3 hours with a smile, and was so easy to work with. The musical performance was on point! He can literally do it all, a one man band! Will definitely hire him again!

    Jukebox Jealousy's extreme variety keeps everyone happy and dancing to songs that not other bands are capable of performing! If you book us for a monthly gig, we will have new music to play each time. Many bands stand and perform and expect all eyes to be on them, Jukebox Jealousy has a different approach and engages the audience for better entertainment and interaction.


    We do classic rock and roll music from the 50's through the 90's. We provide music for all occasions. Also, we play vintage country music, blues, and a little Latin music. We are a duo with recorded sequences for additional sound reinforcement. I play keyboards and sing, and Terry Brantley plays lead guitar and sings.

    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.
