Loree V. says, "Krista Solars review Krista was a marvelous accent to our wedding. We first engaged her to play classical music during our ceremony. My husband is a former musician and really appreciated her vast knowledge of the genre and her desire to customize the music to our taste. He selected several pieces and Krista played them masterfully. While we were in the planning stages of our wedding with Krista, we explored her website and discovered what an amazingly versatile musician she is! We were so impressed that we engaged her additionally to play during our cocktail hour. During that time, she broke out of the classical mode and played pop, country and many other genres. Really, there was so much to select from, we just asked her to delight the audience. And that she did…so much so that our guests applauded her throughout her cocktail hour performance. My favorite was “The Devil Went Down To Georgia”. She really set an upbeat an energetic tone for the evening! The icing on the cake is that Krista is so delightful to work with. She was incredibly sweet in making the arrangements and graciously spent time with us on the phone so that our wedding music was exactly what we wanted. She is a professional in every way and we had no worries on our wedding day itself. She arrived in plenty of time and was completely prepared. She is a very pretty lady, has a great smile and a warm and engaging demeanor. I only wished I had more time to spend with her! I am confidant Krista could command an entire concert herself and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn she lands a big contract in the music world. If so, I will be the first in line to purchase tickets to see her! I’m glad we discovered her while she is still performing at weddings and other special events. If there is one in your future, you will be thrilled when you book Krista!"See more

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.
