Aaron I. says, "My name is Aaron and we reached out to Elijah directly to assist us in overcoming a $10,000 shortfall of funding due to Covid 19. We have many local and state volunteers that were given the flier that Elijah’s team provided, for our events and began calling our family and friends urging them to go to look at the website Elijahedwards.com to see the level of professionalism and entertainment that was coming to our venue. We initially were looking at only one night but suddenly were seeing that one night only would not cover our need, but Elijah stepped up and said…Hey, let’s just double the fun and do two nights in a row… We got on the phone and sold out both nights!!!!! Our members are AWESOME! The ease of ticketing was so much better than the traditional selling, the monies were collected and held for distribution and even better we could see daily the increases. Elijah’s team went above and beyond with an email push to all our membership and a Television and radio appearance that drew even more sales from out of our membership and volunteers, the night of the 1st show was beyond our wildest expectation, we witnessed, Elijah’s hammer finale and he amazed the audience with impossible mentalism and magic. The AUDIENCE volunteers were ready to rush the stage and we had over 70 people on stage that were all made to feel respected and had an amazing time. The show was hilarious and was appropriate for all ages We made over $14,000 over a two-night extravaganza, which Elijah himself, emceed our awards banquette and gave a keynote speech on success, motivation and having and maintaining the proper mindset… The True Reality Tour, Elijah Edwards and his support team were there for us and gave us the opportunity to not just get by with our financial needs but to exceed them. One parting thought, BOOK HIS SHOW IMMEDIATELY AFTER, you will want him back and get this… EACH SHOW WAS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT AND OFF THE HOOK HILARIOUS"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.
