I had a WONDERFUL experience working with DJ Mark and Party Makers. I was a real difficult client! I insisted on making the play list and not straying from it. Mark totally listened to me but used his creativity in mixing the tunes. Now that I know him, I'd be a lot more flexible. Mark has great taste in music! I asked him not to speak much, which he followed. But when he spoke, he was funny! His equipment was great, he was extremely professional. Mark arrived on time, set up quickly, broke down quickly. Consummate professional. My husband has another July 4th birthday next year, I'd LOVE to hire DJ Mark again!!! I've received SO MANY compliments on the DJ from my guests. Everyone asked where I found him! Thank you Thumbtack!!!

Julie is an awesome teacher. She values vocal health a lot and went through all those vocal cord protection tips that I wish I could have known earlier. She also emphasizes expressiveness. I used to sing classical pieces so her jazz background gave me a lot of fun experience. Overall my experience is fantastic. She's a very qualified teacher and I feel comfortable singing with her.

Loved that Adam is both a musician and a DJ! He was able to play acoustic for our ceremony and then turn our reception into a party as a DJ. Took the decision of band or DJ completely out of the equation because he is truly the best of both worlds. He was easy to work with about song choice and various other customizations. He also MC'ed our reception and kept everything flowing. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician and/or DJ.

What a great treasure the Drummers' Studio is for musicians in the area! Kris is extremely helpful and responsive. My new piano teacher is super supportive of an adult interested in taking up lessons after 30 years away from it. Such an all-around positive experience!

I'm an adult student. David has been working with me since 2009. He's amazing. He has me playing songs I never thought I'd be able to play. He has a real knack for getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to musical expression on the guitar. He's great. Hire him!

Tom was absolutely outstanding to work with from beginning to end! We couldn't have selected a better DJ/ musician to work with. From offering suggestions in the beginning on songs to playing live music at the wedding. Our friends and family haven't stopped talking about him! If you want to get everyone out on the dance floor he is your man! He was so great to work with and very responsive! Some people at the wedding couldn't believe it was him singing when they heard him! Definitely book him for your wedding you will not be disappointed! He helped make our day even more perfect!

I have been taking advance piano lessons from Christie for about five years. I had completed a music education program before meeting Christie and then had a long break from music. Christie took my piano playing from a hobby to a profession. She had challenged and inspired me in many ways - from believing I could learn and perform advanced classical pieces to letting me perform with a professional jazz band. Christie motivated me to learn musical theory on a deeper level, prepare for rigorous Royal Conservatory examinations, explore voice lessons, and most importantly inspired me to teach music as well. It was Christie's belief in my abilities that helped me become an educator myself. I am now teaching piano to almost 30 students, and find that I often think of "how Christie would do this" when I teach. She is an inspiration.

During the preparations for our wedding in 2012, we received recommendations about the beautiful and talented Jazz vocalist/songwriter, Gabriela Martina, from friends of ours. After a fantastic evening at a jazz club in New York and a short meeting with Gabriela Martina, our choice was made right then and there! We just wanted HER for this special day in our life!!! And it was definitively the right decision! Our song requests for the wedding ceremony such as our favorite love songs from stars like Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Bette Middler etc. were not a problem at all for Gabriela Martina and she adjusted her repertoire wonderfully and seemed very accommodating to our wishes. People sat with tearful eyes and deeply touched hearts during the whole ceremony. I will never forget this moment in my life. We asked RED VELVET SOUNDS to play some more smooth jazz, light swing music while our guests were having dinner and later for the party they came out with funky, groovy and soulful songs that fit perfect! They seemed very open and flexible in terms of music genre and cleary - we had a blast!Thanks RED VELVET SOUNDS for a very professional performance in any way and your wonderful voice, Gabriela Martina: you guys made our big day unforgettable for everyone!

Music Lessons with Dennis

Verified review

As a composer, collaborating with Dennis Shafer continues to be a great opportunity to work with an incredibly well-rounded, sophisticated, and poetic musician. After soliciting my musical intentions, such an impeccably pictorial and wonderfully sincere performance of my music could only have arisen from someone so wholly invested not only in his craft, but in a greater concept of what music can mean. I am eager to be again composing music for Dennis to perform. In the spirit of his teaching philosophy, he’s opened my eyes to the thrill of collaborative work. Composers can be recluses, and I needed that eye-opener. His availability, willingness, and capacity to clarify the challenges of writing well for the saxophone makes me a better composer. A chance to work or study with Dennis in any capacity should not be passed up. He is a renaissance man and a worldbeater.

I picked Steve to give lessons to my 14-year-old daughter after having a quick chat with him. He informed me that he instructs differently depending on what the student wants to achieve which I liked since it shows a student focus approach. Since my daughter has never played before, I was nervous about picking someone off of the internet but it has been a very good experience. I do not have any music ability so I can only review Steve as a parent of a student. Steve has a great demeanor which is perfect for working with kids. He is very encouraging and appears to very knowledgeable. He uses his experience and knowledge of bands and drummers as well as song bites as examples which easily keeps my daughter’s attention. I have learned a lot just by listening in. By the second class, he had my daughter playing along with a Beetles song while explaining how to keep tempo and to make the different drumming sounds which she really enjoyed. Steve is also very good at writing down homework assignments that she understands and can easily follow which I like. I have not yet invested in a drum set at home until my daughter shows a long-term commitment and this is not just another fad. Steve has her practicing nightly using the pillows which is working out so far. However, given how well this is going, I can see a drum set in the not too distant future. This is in no small part due to Steve and his efforts.

    David: “I had SEVERAL people, dozens, tell me that the band was awesome which I knew would happen but many people said “I feel like I’m at a rock concert - I am so into the music.” Just awesome. Everyone spoke about every part of the band too. “The horn guys are amazing” “That drummer is SICK!” “That’s one of the best guitarists I’ve ever heard live” (Billy Jean - I mean come on - that guitar bit at the end was just mind blowing), and on and on. And as far as the singers connecting with the audience, it was unreal. I mean unreal. They made every person feel special. I know I shouldn’t but I felt proud for picking Downtown Fever! -Julie and Tyson Schoezel”

    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.
