I did not hire him for the party and went with a band outside of thumbtack. But while I was dealing with him, he was very responsive. Thank you

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 was a fantastic DJ and performer for our wedding celebration. He was very accessible, flexible, and easy to work with leading up to the wedding and was a huge hit with all of our guests during the big day. In addition to providing DJ services, Tom played flute, saxophone, and guitar at various stages of our celebrations and kept the dance floor packed throughout the reception. Tom played hits that everyone could get up and dance to, but also tailored his playlist to include some obscure songs and artists that my wife and I particularly enjoy. Our family and friends were thoroughly impressed with Tom’s talents (as were we!), and we received numerous comments from guests of all ages and musical tastes on how Tom’s abilities and musicianship provided a perfect soundtrack to such a joyous occasion. Tom was 100% the best choice we could have made for our wedding, and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone else!

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.

The Either/Orchestra

    I have seen Russ in two different bands; Either/Orchestra an Orchestra Morphine. Due to my being something of a pushy asshole I have managed to meet and get to know Russ, which has led to mischief and mayhem ensuing after gigs in places like Pittsburgh, PA and Falls Church, VA. I have loved E/O since taking a chance of one of their albums because I read a review that mentioned that they had done a cover of a King Cromson song. Without a doubt I consider taking that risk one of the best decisions I have ever made. E/O has never failed to release staggering album after staggering album... Players come and go (and gratefully returned for the NYC 25th anniversary gig) and genre after genre gets the E/O treatment (a combination of inventive charts topped by outstanding soloing)... And this band has never failed to make something ancient and modern, beautiful and frightening, new but familiar. They are almost single-handedly keeping something very American alive; the small big band. My only complaint is that they come to DC too infrequently. The two tours stages by Orchestra Morphine, to celebrate the life and music of Mark Sandman (who I thought i first heard when he sang 'Temptation' on an E/O album until I realized that was the same guy who sang in Treat Her Right) and again I had to stand in awe as Mrk's music was rearranged into forms that elevated and showed respect at the same time. If I die before Russ I hope he will compose a nice New Orleans funeral march for me. Russ, I promise if you do I'll stop asking you to come play in DC (but if you are willing to bring the band to Hell for a gig I promise to be in the front row).

    We booked the Boston Premier Band and they were better than we could have imagined. You can't go wrong booking this band for your reception! Every member of the group was extremely professional and seemed very excited to be playing our event. Ceasar, the band manager was an absolute delight to work with. We spoke at length prior to the wedding discussing the timeline, intros, music, etc. He covered it all. The introductions were very smooth and polished. Also, the band played all the songs we requested and even took the time to learn a few selections they did not know. One of my absolute must-have requests was “Getting’ Jiggy With It,” which is an old song that my college friends still go crazy for. The band’s rendition was spot on and the dance floor exploded!!! It made our night! A month later, our guests are still raving about how wonderful Boston Premier was! Thank you, Guys & Gal for making our reception so incredible!!!

    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.
