Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!

Bob is great! Patient and fun. We have worked with him for over a year and he even organized four 6-year-olds for a band for the school talent show in a very short time.

Brit and Helen provided the music for our wedding ceremony on Sunday, September 18, 2016 as a violin and cello duo and they did a fantastic job! They were actually our second choice but they offered an amazing deal for two people for one hour so we decided to go with them (and we were not disappointed). It took us a little bit to select our music, but thankfully Brit was able to provide us with a wonderful selection of classical and contemporary music to pick from. We also had 3 additional musical selections (Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Legend of Zelda) that we wanted to incorporate into our ceremony. Brit and Helen were able to accurately and expertly integrate these pieces at no additional charge to us. We were both ecstatic when he heard them during the ceremony. It was the cherry on top. Even with a last minute musician substitution, everything turned out perfect. Our communication was mostly through e-mail but the initial phone conversation we had really helped to get us all on the same page. Brit was very responsive as we went back and forth with the music as well as some contract revisions we had requested. We would absolutely recommend Brit and Helen to anyone looking for top notch musicians for their wedding ceremony. Our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye because we were rushed away for pictures. We also forgot to mention that they totally could have stayed for the cocktail hour to indulge in drinks and hors d’ouevres. Sorry!

We attended our friends wedding who had The Band Sundance play and we immediately knew we wanted to book them for our own wedding. Our guests had a blast dancing to their songs. They even learned to play our first dance song which made it extra special. They are so much fun! They were very responsive throughout the process and easy to work with. I highly recommend them as a wedding band!

I cannot express how AMAZING Kathryn and her band were at our wedding! It was the first thing our guests commented to me on: "Where did you find her?!" "She has an amazing voice!" Kathryn has a long repertoire list that is packed with songs of many genres. She also worked with us to incorporate any songs we wanted which weren't on the original list. She and her guitarist provided beautiful background music during our lunch and cocktails, and more danceable selections later on. Their music was such an important part of our event and I would hire her again in a second!

Artist collective is a very professional business that has the musician in their best interest. I personally have worked with them and it was so nice to have them take care of the "business" end, so I could concentrate on the creative end with my band. AC set us up with a photo/video shoot and it was a success! Highly recommended by us!!

Pete and I regularly performed, wrote music and recorded albums together in Shenzhen, China from 20012-2014. I've traveled the world and have performed/collaborated w musicians from all walks of life. Without a doubt, Pete is one of the best. His unique melodic & harmonic guitar colorings are essential in what set him apart from other composers. Pete knows how to listen to each song and write to meet the needs of that song. Pete's written well over 3 albums worth of music and has produce a few of his own music videos. Pete is also a seasoned music teacher, having 3-5 years of classroom teaching of guitar, ukulele in China as well as private lessons in the US over the last decade. And then there's performing: Pete's performed in all manner of venues, all types of bands and with eclectic and unique musicians. Theres very little he hasn't experienced. Whether you want to develop your guitar chops, learn how to song write, pro tips and pointers on performance - Trust me, Pete Kruse is your mentor. I'm his peer and I have learned countless skills from him. He gets my full recommendation.

I can't stress enough how much we loved working with Manny for our Wedding in October 24, 2014. From the moment we met, we knew he was someone we wanted to play at our ceremony. We didn't want traditional wedding, we wanted something different. We had music from the 80's and 90's that represented our taste, to contemporary music. I highly recommend using Manny, and I know the guests at my wedding does as well.

    Ken was fantastic. He played for my parents 50th wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony and put together a perfect arrangement of music and played beautifully. I could not be happier with his service. I would definitely call on him again or recommend him to anyone.

      Michelle was wonderful from the moment we met her. She gracefully interacted with all of our guests (unlike another vendor of ours) and played absolutely beautifully. Her music really set our wedding apart and I could not recommend having Michelle play at your wedding or event more. 5 stars!!

      Steve is a great guy and a wonderful musician. Steve graduated the year before I started high school. He came back to help the saxophone section learn music for marching band and along the way, gave many valuable pointers to help us all know our instruments better and grow as young musicians. Almost 20 years later and I still regard him as an inspiration to my musical endeavors.

      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.
