We hired Chris Hamel Productions for our wedding on July 3 at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. We planned our wedding from halfway across the country, and Chris was accommodating and exceptionally helpful at every turn. We met with him just once and knew he was the perfect fit. He was personable and genuinely interested in what we wanted for our special day. He even edited a song we selected for the father-daughter dance to remove one line that we didn’t want, and the song sounded amazing. On the day of the wedding, we were running late and had Chris change up the grand entrance at the last minute. He came through for us in a big way, staying calm and making last-minute adjustments with no problem. Everything during the wedding ceremony and reception went smoothly, and Chris made us feel comfortable even though we were stressed. We are so glad we hired Chris to be the DJ for our wedding. The songs he chose after talking to us about our likes and dislikes were great. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and a number of our guests said that Chris was the best DJ they’d ever experienced at a wedding. We agreed. It was a truly special day.

Chris was the DJ for our wedding yesterday and did a great job. Everything went so smooth and he helped a bunch of people get onto the dance floor with some good music! He was really flexible and able to roll with whatever happened. We planned on only 2 speeches but when my dad decided last minute to give one as well, Chris saw my hand motion to lower the music and got it immediately. He also did a great job with the ceremony music and the uplighting! Everyone complimented us on the music we had for the ceremony. We had a great time, thank you Chris!!

Mary is warm, smart and professional. She was very quick to respond to questions I had about booking her band for my wedding. At the event, they sounded great and were so much fun to watch! I can't say enough about The O-Tones. My friend Dana booked them after seeing them at my wedding and I think it's safe to say she had the same experience.

Jonathan and his and band played at my birthday party.Omg, it was beautiful. My guests were wondering where I had heard them play and could not believe I just discovered them online. We had the dinner hour under such ambience, it felt like we were in an expensive lounge! If I need a band, I will definitely be calling Jonathan again!!! *Ps. I had a last minute request for an additional song and they made it happen!!

Jamie dj'd at my wedding in 2012... it was great! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night... it was the marrying of very different cultures and he managed to play music for both sides that everyone enjoyed... He was professional throughout the process and made sure to find out what music was important for us to have played... I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you!

The band helped make our wedding day perfect. Over the course of 4 hours they only took one small break and they had everyone dancing all night long. I would highly recommend them.

Dave was exceptional as a solo! His performances have always been great. If you need specific songs, Dave can also bring another performer as a Duo band. Will book Dave again in the near future.

I hired musicians from EKM to sing at my wedding ceremony and was absolutely delighted that they were also able to bring a string quartet to my cocktail hour and play for my reception. It saved me the hassle of hiring three acts and they did all of it for a very fair price. They also kept in contact with me and invited me to meet their performers before the ceremony so I would be completely at ease. They were fun and personable and I would work with them again.

Lyghtin Up and their catalog of classic rock songs are unmatched by any tribute band out there. The singer had me believing I was listening to the actual band! Would hire again and definitely recommend for your musical gatherings.

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.
