Hi my name is Sean Boe, I book music at Paragon Seattle. Jackie Pock Band played at our venue on the first Fri. of every month for the last couple years until they moved to Texas. Jackie (vocals) and Brandon (guitar and vocals) are an absolute joy to be around. They bring positive energy with them wherever they go, and are excellent at crowd interaction and participation. They are very professional when it comes to their booking, playing original songs and both classic and current covers. Oh and did I mention they are both amazing with their instruments?

I wanted to say how wonderful Cover Band was at our first annual company Christmas Party. Everyone was extremely happy with the songs that were played and how the band presented on stage. I am still getting compliments from employees and friends about how good the music was. We can't thank Cover Band enough for such a wonderful and unforgettable evening. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them for any type of entertainment. Awesome job!

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!

New To Thumbtack

With their eclectic mix of '90s and modern pop, two phenomenal vocalists with way too much energy, and a ridiculously over-the-top light show, Identity Theft has been causing crowds to break into song and dance all over North Texas. Along with their endearing blend of goofiness, inhuman voice effects, and walls of synthesizers, Identity Theft has quickly become known for delivering flawless performances that are eerily identical to the original artists, thus living up to their name.

    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.
