I couldn't have asked for better service. They arrived early and got everything set up before the guests arrived. They were both extremely engaged with the guests helping them decide what props they wanted for their picture. I would definitely hire them again for another event.

One of my favorite bands. The Silverado Band played for me on multiple occasions and filled our club to capacity. Great music, awesome entertainment and best of all, great people to deal with. Unlike most other bands, there is no arrogance to deal with in the Silverado Band. Great down home people and a pleasure to work with!

We found Amy through a mutual friend and were so grateful to find her! My son started guitar lessons with Amy in 6th grade and took lessons for about 2years. He went on to play jazz guitar at HSPVA. We credit Amy for giving him that first guitar foundation he needed. Amy has a great talent to match the student with musical interests so that playing was fun, never a chore. She fostered collaboration among her students, giving my son his first chance at playing in a "rock band". Her recitals are fun and more like talent shows; with vocals, piano, guitar, and student bands. Enjoy and learn!

We have given an event for Memorial Day weekend for the past 3 years thi's will be our 4th year. We have gotten them and are very happy with their service. The music is off the chain, whatever music you want to listen to they have it, the karokee is awesome thing that they accommodate for also. The coordination, you can't ask for anything better, they are right on point in getting it organized. We will certainly use them for all of our events.

I was bombarded all night with compliments about how great the band was. I would hire them again if they will play in Austin again. Great energy got everybody dancing and a good time was had by all. The best.

I've worked with Ed on and off over the last few years. As a player, he is a total pro, able to deliver at a high level across many styles. What I really love about playing with Ed is that he is also a great person - always a positive attitude, punctual and prepared. Ed is my first call when I need a drummer, for both live and studio work. He has also given some drum lessons to my son, providing not just style and technique, but also some great philosophy and guidance about music in general.

    I have performed with Isaac at The Texas Opry in Magnolia for many years. I have also seen him perform with his band and been to events that he provided the Karaoke. Isaac is a gret performer with a good voice and a good band. Very high quality entertainment.

    Raquel and her band gave us a really strong hour of music. Her vocals are powerful and make you feel her emotions. The band is talented and work well together and they looked like they enjoyed entertaining us. They were very professional in set up and management of their part of the event. They were perfect for our party and we would definitely like to have them back.

    Karley is an excellent voice coach. I came in looking to get help on my clean vocals and improve my endurance for a metal album my band was set to record. I was certainly not disappointed when the results came in the form of me being able to crush a 3-day straight recording session with a much improved voice. Her teachings are highly transferable for any genre of music that you are looking to sing. Would highly recommend!

    It all started back when I was in high school when I first met ElOriginal DjLusion at first I never was that much of a DJ fan until I began to hear his mixes little by little. And began to catch my attention so I assisted some of his live performances at parties. The way I looked at him wasthat he was really into what he did by the way he made his performances and actually put his heart and time into the mixes by the way that they were being played. Another thing that I actually admired about him was that he is and has been an awsome person at what he loves most and does best being a DJ and actually never gave up no matter what. And finally another thing is that if anyone would ask me if I would recommend him my answer would be yes, because of his amazing performances, keeps his word, and is a very great person at this kind of business and always does his 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 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.
