This was one of those situations where you read through 100 reviews, find a company wit great feedback, and then use that company and see the reviews were correct. Soulful Sounds played and sang live music for my Wedding Ceremony and my Cocktail Hour. They were AMAZING! I got so many compliments on how great my band was. I gave them songs to learn about two months before the wedding, and they really got together to learn and practice the songs. This is the band you want at your event.

I follow Nico's gigs as regularly as possible and have been doing so ever since her fledgling days as a singer song-writer. I love her original music as it has captivating melodies and heartfelt lyrics . She is quite tenacious in getting herself "out there" and in so doing, she leaves me breathless with all the things she does to promote her talents at any one time. I like to go with friends to hang out at her various gigs and be entertained by her while casually enjoying good food rather than a cover band with very loud music. Nico is a very talented singer and musician who plays different instruments equally well.

Here at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, I've had a number of opportunities to work with Ms. Kelly as a solo act and with her bands, in all of our different venues. Always professional, on time and a pleasure to work with! And musically outstanding as well!

Marla Mase is an extraordinary event planner, creator of party magic and Producer! After having been in the business for a couple of decades and working in so many different venues, types of events, parties and performances, Marla has an incredible team. She’s amassed a phenomenal, devoted group of performers, artists, designers & caterers whom she employs at all her parties, depending on need and skill set. I have worked with Marla on several creative projects and events and had a ball working with her. She is the ultimate professional, but always works in a relaxed, easygoing fashion. She is open to discussion and will always brainstorm to bring ones vision to life. Recently she produced a Rock show and party in Tribeca for me that hosted an amazing band, along with several international actors, dancers and singers. Marla hired one of her designers to transform the old Tribeca firehouse into an underworld of sea creatures and magic. It was spectacular. The food was a beautifully abundant array of hors devours and beverages. Hailing from Tribeca and having worked in the New York area for so many years for hundreds of high-end clients, Marla is truly cutting edge. She has an eye for the unique, and is able to adapt to the vision of her client. Marla really gets the job done. She’s personable and lovely and I always feel I’m in good hands with her at the helm.

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.

I came to Sarah with a goal of wanting to accompany myself as a singer, instead of having to rely on a guitarist or a band. In less than a year I played my first solo show. Sarah has prepared me to play solo, with a band, how to rearrange songs, how to read sheet music and so much more. Every lesson I learn something different. She’s made learning piano fun and interesting. Sarah is very patient, kind and extremely talented. I’d never go anywhere else!

Honestly can't say enough about how great these guys are. Peter Maness was super professional and easy to deal with and found the whole band to be extremely talented and very friendly :) most importantly for us though, they really played fun and energetic show that had all our guests up and dancing immediately. Everyone had a blast and are still telling me how much they enjoyed our band. Our wedding music was really important to us so I'm happy to say that these guys knocked it out of the park. Thanks a ton!! -Christi M, East Setauket, NY

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!

Before Steve moved to NYC, I had close to a dozen guitar lessons with him. At age 72, I decided to supplement my love for singing with knowing how to play the guitar. I have been successful learning. Steve's expertise served as a catalyst for me to "move out of my comfort zone." I've played at least 10 open mic nights and felt relatively successful singing and playing simultaneously. I've formed a band at the Georgetown, MA. VFW Post 7608. (see photo included). I'm the chap with the white hat on the right. I enthusiastically endorse Steve Lacey.

A CUT ABOVE THE REST Laura and I just wanted to take a moment and let your customers know what a big part John, Vinnie and Susie (The A-List Band) had in making our wedding a memorable one. From the pre-ceremony to the last song of the evening, you guys were fantastic. We received nothing but positive feedback from our guests as well. We all felt like you guys were really enjoying yourselves. I want to especially thank you guys for the time you took to work with me on the song WE did for Laura. It was a moment we will cherish for a lifetime. I am glad we met that afternoon while seeing you perform at the Beach, We look forward to seeing you guys again! Thanks -Matt & Laura

    Los Chamanes

    New To Thumbtack

      About

      Los Chamanes is a musical group serving a fusion rooted in Nueva Cancion and Latin-American folklore, with flavors of jazz, rock and blues that was born from the spirit of friendship between these Chilean expatriates in NYC, a nostalgia for the magic of the Andes and their native culture. In September 2008, they released Conjuros—their first album—available on digital downloads and CD. Initially, the band interpreted songs from authors of Argentina and Chile such as Fito Páez, Violeta Parra, Peteco Carabajal, Victor Jara, Congreso, etc. With time, they have increasingly combined their own compositions—which now represent almost all of their repertoire—through which they hope to guide their listeners to reflect on issues such as our behavior as a species and social injustice through the healing and inspiring power of music and poetry. Los Chamanes hold a residency monthly at Terraza in Queens, and have entertained at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe and for the Chile Independence yearly event in Randall's Island. They were the opening act of the concerts of Mariana Baraj and Fernando Ubiergo, and have appeared in various "peñas" (folkloric shows), cafés, restaurants and events in the NY Tri-State area. In 2009, they were on a tour twice in Puerto Rico. They performed at the Noche de Viaje Cultural, at an event organized by the Chilean community in association with the city and in Old San Juan. They were invited at the TV show, Buenas Noches con Silverio on Canal 13 and on 2 radio shows of the University of PR. They've recently contributed to various benefits for the victims of the tsunami and earthquake in Chile.

      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.
