David works with our twin girls (7 years old). All they ever wanted to do was play guitar and he's got them playing songs they love. They can also read music, strum chords, and are actually starting to write songs. The growth since last fall is incredible. He's a great teacher and his Beatles tribute band is spot on. Def check them out!

Tom Bruhl was incredibly professional and made my job of organizing so easy! He was a standout entertainer for both the kids and adults. We could not have been any happier with Tom and hope he'll come back for our event next year! I highly recommend him as your DJ and One Man Band - your party guests will thank you all night!

Radio Honey is a truly professional quality live music act. Mike and his band of musicians know their material quite well. They put on a great live show and have very good stage presentation with tasteful lighting and good crowd interaction. I would hire them for any event looking for quality upbeat music with a festive vibe.

I studied with Felix for a couple years, and it was an amazing experience. After studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, he went on to play in several noteworthy bands including Shockra and The Heavy Metal Horns and plays professionally frequently today. Felix is equally at home with rock, jazz, funk, and folk and will take the time to understand your guitar-playing goals. Want to learn to play by ear? Check. Read music and play from scores? Check. Immerse yourself in theory? Check. Felix's knowledge of the guitar is encyclopedic, he's patient, and he will make the journey fun. But most of all, with your commitment, you *will* learn to play the guitar.

I first heard them at the 2014 Boston Jazz Fest and I hired them for a reception. They were a last minute fill in for the original band we hired. We were all really glad they were able to do the thing. They were amazing. They supplied a range of jazz for the cocktail and dinner period and easily moved into some funky Motown and Isaac Hayesish tunes that kept the dance floor moving.

What a fabulous experience! I love this small band with a huge sound. From VanMorrison to Skynard, Old Blue Eyes to the Blues Brothers...and Zach Brown too boot. They know everything, old and new. They understood when to take the level/tempo down for dinner time and when to get the crowd going. I can't wait to book them again for my next party. I know this band will not disappoint. Highly recommend!

We absolutely loved Java Jive. We were so lucky to have them at our wedding! They were so flexible and learned a number of new songs for us. The customer service and care was as if we were their only customer. Throughout the planning process they were incredibly responsive and flexible (as our ideas about the wedding music changed). They walked us through the whole process identifying things we hadn't even thought of. They had played at our venue, the Popponesset Inn a number of times and knew just exactly what we needed for setup and for best sound quality. Java Jive is also so affordable in comparison to other wedding bands. By far the absolute best value and price that we could find, yet the quality of their music was outstanding. We totally love this band and have recommended them to everyone!

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.
