Jesse is one of those people that exudes seemingly effortless talent. You watch him and think that he makes it look easy. This guy could make a rock sing. Fortunately, he teaches you how to make it look easy. Jesse's superior and unwavering technique & knowledge will help you unlock your true potential. He is a mentor who will never not have an answer for your question & a support beam for when you are lacking confidence. Truly one of the greats

As a vocalist in a worship band I wanted to improve my voice so I joined Sofia's lessons a year ago. My voice became definitely more stable after a couple of months and she helped me to discover my real register. Besides practicing scales she recommended me songs from different styles which I'd not thought before that I could ever sing. She gave me useful instructions how to perform. Because of her sensitivity she found the best personal examples for me. It was really a pleasure to take part in her lessons. We had lots of fun.

Hiring UpFront Band was the absolute BEST decision I made for our event! Though many guests didn’t dance, I received several compliments from our guests throughout the evening who really enjoyed the experience of listening to this band live. These musicians are very professional and were easy to work with. Their music was enjoyable for all ages. Take your event up a notch - hire UpFront Band! You won’t regret it!

Hans & the Wanted... WERE AMAZING!!!! thank you guys for making this such an epic event. I asked he band if they could do a "1979 PROM 20th ANNIVERSARY PARTY" for my husband with a lip sync battle...done. They played all 70s themed tunes, knew to do background music while dinner was served, accommodated us for the lip sync battle which included song list and letting guests come up and perform 70s tracks. I asked to not "show boat" and they performed at exactly the right level and LOVED there ability and song chooses. I will never forget these guys as they made it the Epic event that it was and would recommend them %100 percent. oh and great to deal w in planning, returned calls emails immediately as well as scheduled and MCd time table

You will be thrilled with Dennis! Dennis Hitchcox has been teaching our son for just over 3 years. Our son has learned so much - not just music theory but he's learned to play (and enjoy) the fun stuff: rock, blues, folk, classical and some ear training. Dennis makes learning fun. I love to hear them talking about music. As a parent, it's so convenient having Dennis teach here. And in all this time, Dennis has never been late. He's the perfect combination of professional and friendly. If you're considering lessons, do yourself a favor and choose Dennis. (Just don't take our time slot.)

Pressure Point Band was a true highlight for our daughters wedding. So many guests complimented us on hiring a live band for the party. Even the other vendors were impressed and delighted with the music. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Just need another wedding in the family :)

My Daughter went from never playing an instrument to being proficient on her trumpet in 8 months. Her band teacher is so impressed. Much of her understanding of music comes from her voice and trumpet lessons with Ms. Valardi. She is branching out into piano this summer and has even attempted to write her own solo. A music teacher that understands the excitement of a student and balances that with foundation is a wonderful thing to find. Ms Valardi is just that.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Nathan for 8 years. He is an amazing guitarist and an even more amazing teacher. His knowledge of theory is unsurpassed. He can play all styles of music and explain it and teach it to you in an easygoing, fun way! I absolutely love my time with Nathan and look forward to each lesson. His band (Tango Alfa Tango) is awesome. I highly recommend Nathan for anyone and any level!

      Sarah did a one on one workshop with my daughter's band, Death By Thumb. She was able to connect with them immediately and help them sort out some issues they had as a band. Then they went right into song writing. Polished off one and started another all in a two hour period. One song called Mirror was performed just a few weeks later at the Analog Theater in late November. The band members have a lot respect for her and admire what she is doing with her own career. The kids want her to come back as soon as possible! Thank you Sarah, and we hope to see you soon!!

      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.
