Nick was fantastic - great DJ...will definitely hire again!! Even though he was hired for a Sweet 16, he would be fabulous for a wedding, as well! Loved Gary, the photographer, (photo booth). Did a great job....gave out prints to the kids during the party and then received a flash drive with all the pictures when we were leaving.

He did great with all of our last minute changes, but he didn't play a lot of the music we wanted. We had given him a playlist of salsa music but played a lot of Motown. That is our only issue, but otherwise the Spanish music he did play was great and our family had a blast.

Sean and his band provided ideal lively jazz music at a local event. They were super easy to communicate with beforehand, and they played beautifully to a large very appreciative crowd. I strongly recommend them.

The Wayne Batchelor Jazz Band is professional and talented. We hired them for our Spring Benefit recently and all the attendees enjoyed their music. These musicians really know how to jam up the room. If you are looking for live jazz music then you need to consider them. In fact, we plan on hiring them again for future events.

Joe Sang to Me is absolutely amazing!! They can sing any genre and any song and put their own spin on it to make each song unique. Joseph Gehrmann is such a passionate vocalist & guitarist that you feel every song. He also has original music from his band, I Am Fighting, that mixed with acoustic covers make it such a beautiful combination. After hearing them play, I commissioned him to compose music for two of my upcoming films. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My wedding was amazing thanks to Mich and the Skyline Drive Orchestra. When I first called Mitch, he made me feel like I was part of his family and had me so excited about my wedding. My husband asked only one thing from him, have everyone on the dance floor dancing all night and he made that wish come true!! When the wedding was over, all of our guests just raved about how amazing the band was and told us they wish they could continue to dance for hours after the wedding was over. We have been married for 6 months and I have guests still talking about the band. Thank you Mitch and the rest of the band for making my dream come true!!

Chanan was a joy to work with! Knowledgeable and skilled and very creative. He helped produce a record of sacred music for me and also provided back up guitar for my band when needed a few times in Dallas. He is an exceptional engineer and guitar player with a fine ear for detail.

    Nick was the best! We had a cocktail party at our house and his 2 group band was just what we needed, playing smooth jazz and setting a wonderful mood for the party. Punctual, professional, friendly, and an excellent musician too. I'll be rehiring in the future.

    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.
