DJ Repeatable DJed and MCed my wedding. I have worked with a few DJs before, but not one that was willing to work so close with my bride and myself to make sure that we got exactly the playlist we wanted. He made sure he knew our party's name pronunciations in advance, the schedule for the whole evening, and the music that we did not want to hear played. He was able to read our room well to get both the old folks and the younger crowd on the dance floor. DJ Repeatable was super professional, easy going, and new how to make our party a blast, from the ceremony through the reception. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

We loved Donnell the music was great! He was professional and arrived on time. He used the microphone only when we needed him too..it was never the "DJ's show" like you sometimes get with DJ's. Thank you Donnell you were truly a pleasure to work with! Sincerely, April G Leesburg, VA

It was great working with Amy! She was very organized and helpful not only on the day of and with assistance with planning. Even when things didn't go exactly according to plan, she was flexible and calm making it work. Music was very on point, great selections for both dinner and dancing. She kept the dance portion going easily and everyone really enjoyed the tunes, which could have been challenging with a wide age range and music preferences. Was able to accommodate a few really obscure song requests seamlessly. Would highly recommend and would definitely hire again in the future. Thanks for helping make out wedding day run smoothly without a hitch!!

Steven Toole and his Capital Celtic band have been coming to play music at O'Malley's for a few weeks now and they have been nothing but great. Not only are they a pleasure to work with but the music and atmosphere they provide is great for our guests. I have had numerous compliments on them from guests through out the times they have been here.

Terrance did a great job at our 30th anniversary party. I gave him a broad outline of the music we liked and he put together an awesome playlist. Our guests aged 20-60 all loved the music. Terrance was right on time and extended his stay at my request. Tremendous value for the money.

I attended my best friends wedding last September and was blown away by Xen Live's production, that we booked them for my sister's wedding this past January! Working with Xen Live was effortless. I emailed them and Jay ( the owner of XL) got back to me the same day. The consultation was thorough. I told him we wanted music from the 60's 70's and 90's. When we arrived at the venue to do some last final touches, XL was already set up and ready to go! Phew! One less thing we had to worry about on the special day. We had a few songs specifically requested by my sister (to be played at specific moments) Jay was right on queue and didn't miss a beat! Thank you So much XL for making my sister's day so special! We'll be seeing you this fall!

We are so happy we went with Slable for our recent wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to even contact them when I was searching for a DJ because their prices were SO much lower than other local options. I am very happy I went with them, because while they're prices are low, they deliver high quality DJ/MC services! During the weeks leading up to the wedding, the staff was so attentive, responsive, and helpful. They were truly my most pleasant vendor to work with. My husband and I were thrilled with them at our wedding, as were our guests. They used the playlist and notes I gave them to perfectly tailor the entertainment for the night. There were oldies for everyone to enjoy, and plenty of new music/90s throwbacks for those that stuck around for the dancing long after dinner. We have already recommended Slable to engaged friends and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone in the area looking for a great DJ at a great value! Thanks for helping make our wedding wonderful!

All went well. DJ Jigga-C was on time, professional, and prepared. The party was for my 70 year old husband who loves a good time. The crowd was mixed, some teens, 20's, 30's, up to 70's. The music was nonstop and great. Would I use DJ Jigga-C again? Yes. Would I recommend him to friends? Yes

Keep up the great job! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We recently hired DJ Bugsy for our annual Cinco de Mayo. The music from DJ Bugsy definitely was THE key factor to making it one of the best parties we have ever had at Crofton Swim and Tennis Club. He showed up on time, was very nice, and played awesome music that everyone enjoyed and danced to throughout the evening. Thanks DJ Bugsy, we will definitely have you back again!

We hired DJ Wendy-Rai for my daughter's sixth birthday. We had no experience in throwing kids parties, which only made this first party more memorable! DJ Wendy-Rai blended in with the kids who were drawn to her music. She was professional, flexible in meeting the taste and needs of my daughter and her friends, and friendly. She also provided lighting and party headbands! We are grateful to DJ Wendy-Rai for making our first party for our daughter a fun, memorable experience - to repeat, same DJ :)

DJ L.I.C. Just recently dj'd my sons high school graduation party. It could not have worked out better. He was kind and curtious, music selection was awesome (considering people did not have requests) and he had all the kids dancing and singing all night. The kids didn't want the music to end. I highly recommend DJ L.I.C. for any party and any age group!

Me and my fiance had been looking for a good affordable DJ after the ones we had in mind were not available. We were hesitate to spend more than we had in mind for a DJ but decided to hire DJ Lucho since we really wanted a good DJ. All I can say is the he really made it worth every penny! Me and all my guest at the reception had a blast dancing to a great verity of Latin and other music. A lot of the guest were commenting how good the DJ was. The lighting he provided also added a great touch to the decor and ambiance. He really made my reception a memorable event.

Ving's DJ saved the day for my event. Our original plan fell through and Ryan was able to DJ on short notice. He arrived early, had exactly the right equipment for the event (a silent auction which was not silent), and contributed to the fun atmosphere and success of the event. He played the right music for the crowd and worked with us on necessary event announcements. Highly recommended!

Ms. Nicole Lamm was my very first voice teacher. I started taking voice lessons with her at about age 13, and continued for over 5 years, for all of 8th-12th grades. Being at the most beginning stages of singing, Nicole not only introduced me to a genre of music that I never thought I would sing, but that I would easily fall in love with. She brought me from an inexperienced child to a young lady, preparing me and instilling in me musicianship, work ethic and and a passion for classical music, including art song, musical theater and opera. Her teachings are affective for anyone, young or old, beginner or professional. Because of her patience and time spent with me all those years, I have been singing for over 10 and am continuing my studies as an opera singer, a career that began with her and will last a lifetime.

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.

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.
