I have been studying guitar with Rob for about the last 10 years, studying both theory and improvisation. Each week we review various scale and chord charts and apply them to the Rob's Jam Trax downloaded to my Nano. The Jam Trax we work on are Blues and Jazz traditionals and a set list of my songs. This has helped me to develope my own style of playing. Each week I get a challenging lesson with twists and turns that builds my confidence as a guitar player.

Jarrod was an absolute pleasure to work with! He played music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and entire reception! He did not need any direction during our Big Day, he is a true professional and knew exactly where to be and what to play! Jarrod put together a jazz quartet for reception and it was absolutely perfect! They played great music and all or our guests raved about it! Whether you are looking for background cocktail music, or getting people onto the dance floor, you will not be dissappointed. We wanted jazz, New Orleans style blues/jazz and that's exactly what we got! I still have several of the songs he played stuck in my head! If you are looking for a jazz musician to play fun upbeat music for your event - this is it! Thank you Jarrod!

Thank you for getting in touch with us. I would be delighted to give Darron Moore and The 14th Floor a review. We hired this band for our annual corporate employee appreciation dinner at General Motors In Detroit, Michigan. The Band was very, very professional and their Luther Vandross Experience Tribute was fantastic! They performed Motown and Dance Music as well. The Band was early setting up and was ready to perform on time as scheduled. We requested the band to play a little longer than we contracted them for and they accommodated us. We will be using Darron Moore and The 14th Floor for other upcoming events. ---Baker Miller

    Michael toured the midwest last September, 2014 with his show, The Rat Pack Legends. Two of the shows took place at the Isle of Capri Casinos, Booneville and Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Sold out. Tremendous audience appreciation. Although Mike is referred to as a Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, et al, imitator, Mike does not attempt to imitate these iconic artists. Mike's voice and talent and staging is so unique to the tribute of these artists that the audience retrace their memories of the fifties and sixties. Great interaction with the audience. His finale, New York, New York, with the help of an audience dance-line reminises the Radio City follies.

    Hi, I am Carol Collins, music director for Thurston Community Players. Doug has coordinated the band and played the keyboard and sax for our musical the last 4 years. The band is quite talented and well received. They adjusted tempos, rhythm and volume as needed to work with the actors. I would highly recommend them for any gig.

    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.
