Hi Mark, Ben and I would like to say thank you so much for being our wedding DJ! You were great and you have no idea how much we appreciate it. You knew exactly what to play to get people dancing and got the crowd's attention for us when we needed it. Thank you so much, you were outstanding and I will recommend you to anyone I know in the future who may be looking for a wedding DJ.

Adam did an outstanding job performing and providing us with a wonderful set list of music for our wedding. Not only is he a great musician but he is attentive on how to incorporate his music so as not to overpower his audience. Perfect compliment to our special day!

We feel so very lucky to have Kris's talents available to us. Where else could you find someone who has toured and played with well-known drummers and bands so close to home? Our son has taken his playing to the next level with Kris and learned new skills and gotten familiar with the different styles of drumming. Kris also passes along his extensive technical knowledge so that students learn to maintain their sets themselves. Besides being a true professional, Kris is a wonderful person whose teaching style and over-all personality makes learning from him both fun and enjoyable. He loves what he does and it shows!

We hired Music Matters DJ & Party services for our wedding in 2012. From the beginning Mike helped plan our special day with a great attitude and lots of fresh ideas that one would expect. From organizing all of the music, arranging for our violinist, performing during our cocktail hour, and as our DJ during our reception our day was filled with great entertainment. The service we received was impressive, he knew our venue, and was key in making our special day memorable and low stress.

Brandy did a great job performing at my wedding. I received so many compliments from my guests about them. They heeded all of my requests ranging from song selection to sound volume and vocal style. Perhaps the biggest testament to their performance was the sight of my 4 year old nephew rocking out to the band's music, despite never having expressed any dance inclination previously. It was an astounding revelation, even to his parents.

We hired Jon to perform classical guitar for our wedding ceremony. We were late in the planning stages, and hadn't spent enough time thinking through the ceremony music. Jon made a number of suggestions, and we found several selections we liked. Knowing he was experienced with previous weddings, and confident, was reassuring, especially since some of the details were still being worked out at the last minute. In the end, his playing was fantastic, and the music perfectly suited our procession, setting a beautiful tone for an unforgettable evening. Jon is an excellent musician and a true professional, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

    "We absolutely loved the band and have had nothing but extremely positive reviews and comments from our guests. Many of them saying things like “the most fun they’ve had in a long time!” and one couple even told us that was the best reception they’ve been to since their own. Everything about the band, MC, coordinator, etc. was of the utmost professionalism and everything was delivered perfectly. Overall, absolutely fantastic! Thanks again, Rob Forgione”

    WOW!!! i could not have been more pleased with the DJ who played my wedding. Mike was so professional and met with us before the wedding and made up a playlist for us for all the important dance songs plus the regular dance songs. During the wedding he made all the announcements for us with enthusiasm and everything ran on time. The music was perfect the whole night and everything went so well we both gave him a big hug at the end of the night! We shopped around for a while and he was by far the most reasonable but we feel like the service was the best we could have gotten no matter how much we paid! I cannot recommend him strong enough....please give him a try and you will not be dissapointed and he will help make your wedding as perfect as he made ours! simply put...THE BEST!!!

    About

    Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the band’s start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk. Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and self empowerment, while giving people sounds to bob their heads and move their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows, and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, each providing a senses-saturating experience full of high energy. In their third year, the band is unleashing their unique electro-funk-jazz sonic explorations throughout the northeast, having performed at venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC). In Summer 2011, the group made their debut on the festival circuit, performing at festivals, such as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY). Insigniya is ever-increasingly devoted to creating a unique music that pushes the envelope in all genres, while sharing a collective love for music, positive progression, and good times with the masses.

    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.
