Scott was wonderful. He showed genuine care for my wedding, offered to help me pick the music, and offered to talk to me a few times to play me what he could play. Unfortunately, my wedding did not go through. However, I would not hesitate to contact Scott again if I ever needed him.

DJ IrocZ is professional and personable at the same. He did an amazing job and made our wedding exceptionally special with his charismatic personality on the mic. He was able to smoothly transition through his wedding playlist and everyone loved it. I would highly recommend DJ IrocZ to anyone in the DFW metroplex looking for some good jams and good vibes for their party!

Sent a pianist for my wedding in September of 2014. Damon did an amazing job finding us a pianist that fit our needs. Lots of guests raved about the music selection. Damon also made the process for easy. He immediately sent over the contract and coordinated very well with my planner. Thanks!

Pete is awesome! I started taking lessons from him just over a year ago. Having had no formal training prior, he was able to teach me a version of Ben folds’ the luckiest which I then played for my wife on our wedding day just a few short months later. He works with you to make sure you know the basics but also keeps it fun. It’s been clear from the start that he has a passion for music as well as the patience and enthusiasm for anyone seeking to learn more about the instrument and music in general. Highly recommend.

I first contacted Mark after seeing an online advertisement for piano lessons in the Addison area. I mentioned to him that I was interested in learning piano and had absolutely no knowledge of piano, although I did have a background in music as a vocalist and trombonist for a band in college. He cheerfully followed up with me and had me come in to the piano gallery for a preview lesson, introducing me to the basics and making recommendations on keyboards and music. After only a few months of lessons I was on my way to a newly discovered passion. Mark has been instrumental in advancing my musical abilities and has been extremely flexible in scheduling lessons, as well as very adaptable to my abilities.

Anthony was a pleasure to work with ... Magen was outstanding. I didn't get a chance to meet her ... I was with the wedding party and when I walked into the church ... well that was the only time I heard her play. I could watch and listen to her for hours .... Megan .... you went with the flow .. and when the Leah the bride took a little too long coming into the church, you handled it ... I think you had to play the same entry 3 times :) sorrry. But it worked. You looked and sounded awesome and I would recommend you every/any time. Thank you .... From Michigan to Texas .... Love ya'all.

I can’t say enough good things about the band! Their energy was contagious and it got the party going! My family is still talking about them and how great they sounded. No one wanted to leave the party until after they stopped playing. They were open to requests and even let my uncle and brother in law sing a family favorite! We had such a great time and highly recommend them to anyone. We will be booking them again in the future - great work!

I hired Laurel as a harpist for my wedding ceremony. We wanted to hire all small business owners for our wedding vendors and Laurel was good. She showed up on time and played for our wedding ceremony. It was an outdoor wedding (Dallas Arboretum) so it was hard to find musicians who would fit in a remote, garden setting. A harp was perfect for the setting and Laurel did well.

    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.
