Jon is a very patient guitar teacher. Our son, Nathanael is 13 and has been taking guitar lessons for five years and he has been through four guitar teachers. Jon has been able to take him to the next level. He is doing more than just learning how to play a song or two. He is learning to understand music with his guitar and technique when playing. Working with Jon has not only helped Nathanael excel as a guitar player but also in band as a clarinet player in middle school. Jon's studio is comfortable for his students and guests. He is always in a cheerful mood when he is teaching and we are always made to feel welcome. We appreciate what Jon has done for our son because music has helped him excel as a student, a musician, and as a person. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an instructor.

Damon performed at my party in Trinity Groves recently. He and his band were on time, brought their own equipment and were set up before my guests arrived. His vocals were amazing and the band - all consummate professionals. It was a great night - they played longer than expected - which was great and his playlist was perfect for my audience. You can't go wrong with Damon he is a pleasure to work with and a gifted artist.

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.

I was a 56 year old man that finally decided to learn to play an instrument instead of spending my life wishing I could play an instrument. Being a product of the 70’s, I’d always had a desire play a bass guitar in a rock and roll band. I feel very fortunate to have stumbled upon Mark Black and Promethean Studios. From the beginning, my desire has been to learn how to play music not just become a human jukebox. Under Mark’s guidance for the last year and a half, I feel I am achieving that goal. Even though I know I have hardly scratched the surface of the musical universe, I was able to quickly hold my own with a band of experienced grey beards I play with regularly. Mark has proven to me he is an experienced teacher with a solid approach to teaching music that fits my needs. Mark also has a dry wit that keeps each lesson interesting. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone with a serious interest in learning music.

Prior to scheduling Camden we received excellent communication. This included discussing such topics as: sets, breaks, types of music we wanted preformed even due to the type of event (Gallery Night) taking place as well as how we may have liked him to be dressed. Ever the professional there was not an item that was not covered pro-actively from his end. As soon as this warm and engaging young man impeccably dressed arrived, immediately we knew we had made the right decision to hire Camden. His musical talent was such...we had people coming to our event thinking we had pre-recorded music playing. Only to quickly be amazed he was indeed playing! Camden was even drawing people from the street he is that talented. To say he made our event "is an under statement". He also, helped calm our nerves as well. We went from being stressed, before the event, to actually enjoying ourselves because we could listen to him play. Camden conducted himself at our event as a true professional, always being gracious and polite. He played music that crossed multiple generations that had mass appeal. Through out the evening we were getting complements. Even today, weeks after the event people are commenting how much they enjoyed his playing that evening, along with how much they enjoyed watching him play. These complements have included those from other professional musicians . We look forward to having the opportunity to work with Camden in the future ourselves. When able to provide a referral for a musical talent...Camden's name is sure to be given.

My Husband & I hired Coby to perform at our Wedding in April 2014. First & foremost Coby was extremely accommodating of the songs requested & how he could help DJ our Wedding in between the live performance during the reception. Our guests couldn't get enough of the band! My Husband & I were beyond pleased with his entire performance along with his band members. Coby will always be our go to band for events. Down to Earth guy who is a crowd pleaser. We look forward to the next event we schedule with Coby. He made a Brides perfect day even more perfect. A year later & our guests still talk about the great entertainment. I'd be glad to provide details to anyone considering hiring Coby. He comes highly recommended by a couple who hired him for a special day in our life's.

The Jeh Horton Band first performance at EL Primo's Mexican Grill and Cantina rocked the house. They are able to bring a unique style and energy to the crowd they are playing to. It is really fascinating to watch them win over the people. "Playing to the crowd" has never been so obvious!

Mark is a good player and more than good enough to teach beginners through expert players. Never intimidates, and has a good way of explaining the basics of playing. Always on time for appointments and very professional.

Randy was great to work with. I suggest that you don't rely on others to have to approve funds holding you back and hire these guys. It's been a pleasure working with them.

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 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.

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.
