This past May, Stevie drove to northern VA to perform at my husband's 50th surprise party. It was in our backyard. The goal was to have a fun, yet casual evening w/ close friends and live music. Stevie was professional and personal. He tailored the music selection to what my husband liked and many "on the spot" requests. He was so great, that my husband and guests asked him to stay for another hour...which he graciously agreed to do w/o hesitation. The night could not have gone better and a major part of that was due to Stevie. I HIGHLY recommend him for any private party, wedding, bar/restaurant, etc. You will not be disappointed. My best to Stevie w/ his future performances!

Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.

Had the trio version (sax, bass, guitar) of Sounds Good for our daughter's wedding - they played before the wedding, the processional and recessional, and at our cocktail hour. Great repertoire, easy to work with and very professional. Would highly recommend.

I came upon doing vocal lessons with Sam from no background whatsoever in singing music. Although I was with Sam only for a year, my vocal growth and development under his tutelage has been remarkable. Sam is the perfect example of a great and attentive instructor with a true passion for what he does. He has excellent teaching methods and will really break down techniques in a way that is understandable to anyone. Sam worked with me very patiently and helped me to develop the level of vocal ability I have always wanted. I performed at our wedding for my wife and the crowd reaction was outstanding, way beyond the pity clap that I thought I might have gotten. People only stated how beautiful and amazing my voice was and some even asked who my instructor was! I have Sam to thank for all of this, he not only teaches you the right techniques but really invests the time to develop musicality in a fun and safe environment. Train with this guy if you have the opportunity to do so!

After seeing Damon perform at venues and events in the area, we were very excited to hire his band for our wedding. We had an outdoor wedding with about 180 guest of all ages. After an initial meeting to discuss the evening, the band showed up and proceeded to rock the house right down to the ground! With music from every generation, all of the guests had an evening that they will remember forever. Damon learned our "first dance" song, rocked out a hardcore "Hava Nagila" and other cultural dance songs and even played my father in laws favorite tunes. People still talk about our big day and Damon and his crew were a huge part of the success. If you want to have an event that has has people dancing to the wee hours, Damon Forman is the guys for you!

My husband and I hired Simone to play the piano during our cocktail hour for our wedding at a private country club in Baltimore this past weekend. Simone was quick to respond and a pleasure to coordinate with. At the event she was on time and played beautifully. I had so many things going on that day and had so many people to talk to at the cocktail hour, but I remember hearing the piano start and being so relieved and grateful that she was there. She added such an elegance and sophistication to my event and I know that my guests appreciated her talent and noticed her professionalism. I could not have been more pleased with hiring Simone and will surely keep her in mind to recommend in the future.

We weren't sure what to expect booking a band without having met them, but New Legacy Jazz Band was definitely worth it! They made our wedding so much more fun, with none of the typical wedding band cheesiness many come to expect. We were very impressed with the samples posted on their website, and even more so with the easy communication with our contact Alan. We could tell they had done this many times in the past - every time we sent a question (such as whether they could play music from a CD, or would be able to make announcements), he responded promptly and assured us that all of our needs were covered. The band was able to do everything we hoped for and more! We had 165 guests, and packed the dance floor even at 1 in the afternoon. We had been so worried about people not dancing that early, but the music was so good it was hard not to! In addition, Alan was friendly and personable at the mic making announcements and cuing the events of the afternoon, giving us exactly what we wanted despite the vague descriptions we had sent. We heard a LOT of compliments about the music from our guests, and are so glad we booked New Legacy for our wedding. We would recommend them in a heartbeat - the music was great, the energy was high, and they were so very easy to work with.

I hired David to DJ and perform acoustic cocktail hour at my wedding and he was excellent. Very professional. David is very versatile. The fact that he is a singer and acoustic guitar player in addition to DJ was HUGE. Saved me a lot of headaches. Would hire again for and DJ or acoustic / band services.

Jarrett was the music director for our wedding and we couldn't have made a better choice! Our ceremony was filled with songs from many different genres of music and Jarrett covered them all like the pro he is. Three years later our guests literally still talk about how amazing our wedding music was. Despite his incredible talent, Jarrett is down to earth and wonderful to work with and definitely someone you can trust. Ronald & Penny Greene

I can confidently say Escapade is the best wedding band I've ever seen. The quality of their musicianship and showmanship is outstanding. Not only are they excellent musicians but they are also wonderful people which makes working with them delightful especially durring chaotic parties. I've even found myself listening to songs they played that I hadn't heard before I saw them performed by Escapade. I can't recommend them strongly enough.

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.
