Sarah's Swing Set is the perfect wedding reception band. Everyone loved their song selections, and Sarah has a wonderful style at the mic. They were not too loud that people could not talk with each other if they wanted to. Book them!

Stephen and The Brigantine Band were an excellent addition to our event. We hosted a community event in which they provided the live entertainment. They were extremely easy to work with, very professional and tailored their playlist to match the event and audience. We had some hiccups on our end last minute, but Stephen and his crew were accommodating and helped think through solutions. It was a great event! I would definitely recommend The Brigantine Band! We will also be utilizing them for future events!

Branch is uniquely talented. He is excellent putting his own spin on song-covers, unlike many local artists who fail at trying to mimic the originals. In my opinion, his greatest strength is his ability to "live-loop;" creating original music one sound at a time in front of his audience, switching instruments with an efficiency that's hard to match, and singlehandedly providing a sound which would normally require a large band. While live-looping, Branch provides a new-age sound, many times in a blues-rock style, yet at the same time funk-based. He offers his audiences both a pleasant and reliable environment and solid entertainment every time I see him.

Oh Well .. Where do I start about Priya (aka Bhanu Priya) .. She planned very well in advance and put in lot of effort. Their family came over evening before the party and made sure that decoration is done by morning for Pooja (Vratham) and daughter's first birthday party. She is got lot of passion and interest towards what she does. We have got lot of compliments about the Decoration and definitely recommend whoever is looking for Event Planner/Decorator in the area. We are really happy that, we went ahead with "The Purple Tassle" for our events.

    Temica and her band is the only way to go for any event. She was very professional and I like the fact that she was always available and prompt when I had questions. She and her band performed at my wedding and reception. They sounded absolutely amazing! To this day I have guest asking about Temica and where is her next performance. I personally could hear her sing Etta James "At Last" every day. She sung that at my wedding and she had my guest in total awe. Beautifully done!

      I used Events Undefined to hire a bar tender for my ladies night in party! The service was great, the bartender was completely professional, fun and not bad looking either :-) This definitely added an extra level of elegance to my event. Tyler was professional, very communicative and easy to work with! Will use again if needed

        About

        Otherworldly spirits from ancient times, the party demons are the embodiment of the deepest bass, sharpest treble, and most destructively loud system bumping known across the universe. Once banished deep within the earth for crimes against the peace and quietude of what has become today's suburban lifestyle, they have risen once more. The party demons scour the lands in the search of the best DJs and the hottest parties, seeking the parteian atmosphere, which fuels their incredible energy. They have been melting faces since the Big Bang.

        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.
