We had an engagement party for two of my kids (25/30) and it turned out great. Stevie was so accommodating and professional. People enjoy the ability to request songs from his extensive catalog. And I got to jam with him on two songs. I'll be sure to hire him again for future functions!

Absolutely great experience working with Tim and his band! Highly recommend. We hired a trio for this event specifically and the attendees loved them. They were punctual, responsive and fulfilled all expectations. The music was great and well received. We look forward to working with them again in the future!

Turtle Recall is the most fun band you will find, without a doubt. They play mashups from all genres and all eras, and they put their own touch on each song. They kept our dance floor packed throughout our entire reception. The music almost never stops, and everyone was singing and dancing all night. Even our guests that usually don't dance couldn't help but get out there and join the fun. Every single guest we've spoken with since our wedding has told us how much they loved the band. They are really nice people and will do everything possible to make sure your big day is perfect. They are quick to respond and will work with you to make sure all the details are take care of before the big day. Their sound system is outstanding, and they can do sound for your ceremony, as well. They will also MC, learn new songs, play your first dances, and any other request you have. Turtle Recall will make your night memorable. Go check them out in the DMV area and see for yourself. We saw them once and were hooked. We love these guys and still go see them every chance we get. Hire these guys, they are the best!

The band played during the ceremony for my outdoor summer wedding in Baltimore in Aug2017. Bob and his band were very professional, easy to work with and great value for their services. Highly recommended for events large and small!

      We had a great time when you were at Dogfish. We loved it! Funny but my friend Arlene tried to dance to "Dillon" (her quote!). I hope we get to go back there on the 11th. It was a great trip down memory lane. You guys rock! Sharon

      About

      I am an R&B artist from Baltimore. I am currently finishing up my first album by multi-platinum producer Herb Middleton. I sing, write song, arrange and produce. I honestly have a gift for melody creation. I also have my own band. We perform songs ranging from classic soul, i.e. Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Eddie Kendricks, Stevie Wonder to contemporary, i.e. Maxwell, D'Angelo, Chris Brown, etc. Most people in the area call my sound "New Age Motown".

      Xtract Band was phenomenal. They were dressed nice, performed well, what more can you expect. On top of their performance, working with Clint was very easy and very professional, an all around great experience! Everyone had a great time. The music and sound they projected was perfect. I highly recommend Xtract Band for any live performances.

      I have to give Ernie Fields and his band two thumbs up. With winds blowing, rain falling, sides coming off the tent. Even though I told them it was OK and call it a day, They just kept on going. I would recommend Ernie Fields,, to anyone and all. Ernie Fields, a great entertainer and a true gentleman will do what it takes to insure your event will be remembered for years to come. Thank you Ernie Fields.

      Billy and co are top notch. I've known Mr. Martin for a long time and he's played many events at my place in a couple different bands. He's a consummate professional and a good dude. FFRD is unique because they don't really sound like any one band. They're a combination of quite a few different genres, people of all ages will get what they do and they are super tight for such a big band. Hire them.

      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.
