Jonathan played for my son's wedding and did a fabulous job of playing tasteful, relaxing, enjoyable jazz background music for the reception. (~1.5hr) His choice of songs was great. Jonathan is an extremely easy to work with person, a great musician and has a very large repertoire of songs he can play. (in several different genres) He can also play anything from solo piano, to duo, trio, etc. I greatly enjoyed the musicality and feel of his piano playing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for piano based musical performance for their event.

I initially hired Chance in his trio with Jarrod Lawson and Tryrone Hendrix on a whim; I found Chance on line, took a risk, and what a phenomenal find he was! He & his trio have since played at several events at my home. They are fabulous and truly gifted musicians! They add that extra level of positive energy and class to any occassion! Chance, as my contact has always been highly professional, easy to communicate with, on time, and accomodating. Should the occasion arise I would definitely hire Chance again!

'Ky is a knowledgeable and experienced teacher and musician. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer, he has a strong grasp of teaching techniques that make playing string instruments achievable to a wide range of students, from the very beginner to the more advanced. His ability to sing is also helpful, as he teaches his students to play by ear, and to learn how to improvise from songs they hear. I really enjoyed learning the guitar and taking singing lessons from him. He is focused, passionate, and makes playing and practicing music fun! I highly recommend him as a teacher.' Dave Polston

    Jack is an excellent teacher. He teaches me how to pronounce the vowels and consonant so my voice will blend with other singers. He also teaches me to have good posture when singing. He is always on time. Jack knows a lot about using my voice the right way so he teaches me everything that he knows so that I can use my voice to the best of my ability. He encourages me by letting me know that when I sing, I am conveying a message through singing. He inspires me to do my best.

    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.
