Recently I was able to take some much needed time for myself and made a pilgrimage to Rochester, NY from IN to visit my good friend Debora Magone. I met her in 82 while living in CA through the martial arts and we became friends there. I was able to occasionally touch base with her over the years until losing contact with her in 97 only to find her in cyberspace in 2010 and we picked up where we had left off only for me to find out that my friend had matured like a fine wine. Deborah is not only a highly regarded sensi of the martial arts, performing and recording R&B artist, music teacher, activist, and psychic ; she is also a compassionate learned sage beyond her years. She wears many hats juggling them all seamlessly while being a wife, mother of two remarkable children, and primary care giver to her aging father. During my visit I was fortunate enough to see her perform twice. The first night was for the patrons of the Italian restaurant " Pane Vino " and I was impressed to say the least, but it was at the " Bug Jar " where she really shined. Two of her young students were there joined by their parents and their parents friends recording the children's performances. Her students were phenomenal and surprisingly relaxed in an adult venue all do to Deborah's teaching and guidance. This night was also a fund raiser for " Radio Free Rochester " and I was proud to be a part of it. My friend was also kind enough to give me a reading that started with a message she got while coming to get me for lunch at " Tony D's." She shared the message as we were on one of the off ramps to downtown Rochester and I was truly taken aback by what I was hearing. I had always believed that there was something on the other side of this celestial plane and now I know there is for sure. The actual reading took place two days later in her home where she made me aware of my own innate psyche and how to listen to and apply it in the future. In short Deborah Magone is one of the finest human beings I have had the privilege of knowing. I feel truly fortunate to be counted among her friends and find comfort in knowing that she is one of mine.

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.
