Steve Clancy and his band the easy money band we're amazing! He played music for my wedding ceremony down by the water and then the band played at the reception. We could have not asked for anything better. They went above and beyond, he even helped us pour the champagne! They got everybody up and dancing on the dance floor. They played exactly what we asked for. They turned my husband into a rock star he was up singing And dancing with the band. He was on time and very knowledgable about where to set up and what would sound the best. He announced everythibg we asked him to. The only thing we think that could have been better was if we gotta hear them longer! Thank you so much steve and the easy money band, you guys rocked and we highly recommend you to anybody that's looking for an awesome time!!

Can not say enough amazing things about Lucas and the band. From the planning and coordination up to our wedding day he was a dream to work with and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented, professional, and personable wedding band. He and the band learned several songs specifically for us, including a song that my maid of honor sang for our first dance. He also worked with us on some logistical challenges for moving equipment since we were planning from out of state, and came over to the venue for the rehearsal to ensure we all felt prepared. Our wedding party, family, and guests absolutely adored him and we got multiple comments about how much people enjoyed the music. We deeply appreciated his+the band's time, talent, and professionalism. Book him! You'll be happy you did.

    You guys were absolutely incredible!! You were very professional and sounded fantastic, despite how cold it was for our outdoor party, and playing for 6 hours, you never missed a beat! The comments we heard from all of our guests were that you sounded amazing and you're a great party band! Thank you so much for making our party a huge success, it was epic!!!

      We hired the Larry Williams Band to perform at a Corp function at the Westin, Portland ME. I was so impressed with the talent level of every member of this band! We had 'retro' theme, and they played songs from the past, as well as a vast assortment of current music. Our group hit the dance floor immediately! Larry is a true entertainer. Not only is he a talented musician, but he also engaged with our attendees all night, and got them into the party mode! The majority of people had early morning flights, but stayed up and danced to the last song. Thanks so much for making our event memorable!!

        Zach did a great job of teaching my sons guitar for about 2 years. He kept it interesting for them as they are 12 year old twins. They are going to join the middle school jazz band and they owe a big part of this to Zach and his instruction.

          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.
