Kylah offers a very comfortable environment which is important for nervous people like myself. She was able to plan out our goals, was very flexible with listening to bands I wanted to sing along with for practice, and described how the body is effected when you sing a certain way or how your voice will sound when you do certain things to your body. That extra knowledge is vital if you want to learn to stay healthy and perform strong. Overall, the lesson went very well and we plan to meet again a week from now. Thanks Kylah!

Working with Micah was amazing! I gained confidence in my piano playing and I learned various styles of jazz and music theory. He was very accommodating to my busy school schedule and he's friendly and fun to work with. I like that he customizes your lessons according to your skill and your preference of how fast you want to learn the material. He is definitely great at teaching as he knows how to explain things really well. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I booked and ran sound for Matthew Ian at a venue on a monthly basis for over a year. He was always a consummate professional, arriving prepared and earnest to engage our audiences, and reliably delivering a great performance. Matt has a wide range of original and cover material to suit a variety of venues, and also has extensive experience running sound equipment, DJing, and working in various DAWs. I would highly recommend him for large or small events.

John has been a very special presence in my life! He has been very successful in helping me to feel more comfortable in my own personhood. I recently lost my Mom, and, through his encouragement to be aware of my breathing, I have begun to heal from this loss. John will cover the most extraordinary range of music with me! Both contemporary (pop), show tunes and classical. He has helped me with making smoother transitions between my three registers (chest, head and very high head -- I don't know what that's called!) He has a wonderful sense of humor and I look forward to working with him for a very long time!

Carlos and his band made our event really (anniversary) special. Carlos called us to find out all the details and order of the event and his music was fantastic. But, he really went above and beyond. When it was time for a couple of our dearest friends to wish us a happy anniversary, he even helped us with the microphones so their toasts could be heard well by all the guests. Our guests really loved the music, and especially the variety they played. Thank you Carlos and band. You guys were amazing.

Nate was my son's guitar teacher for about 8 months. He did an excellent job of explaining things so that they were easy to understand, as well as using songs that my song liked as a way to teach him. My son's playing improved almost immediately after starting lessons with Nate and he was great at following up with him in between lessons if he ever needed help with something.

We can only rave at how great this little band was at my daughter's wedding last May in Austin. David does a great job of communicating and was very flexible with a number of special requests which helped to make it such a great day. They came early, and stayed late, even helping us to pick up afterwards. The music is very precise and FUN!!! Steel Betty played quiet prayerful tunes during the ceremony, and gradually amped up the energy as the festivities followed. Highly recommended! Stephen N.

    About

    I'm Sherah, the writer and lead singer for The Fine Souls. My smokey, jazz-inflected vocal croons against a backdrop of guitar, upright bass and jazz drum kit. I specialize in writing beautiful, danceable love songs, and I write from a wide range of Roots genres: folk, vocal and Louisiana jazz, blues, soul, pop and early R&B, so the music never gets boring or repetitious. My melodies are memorable, and the lyrics are vivid, poetic, and romantic, reflecting all the various moods of love. I've even written a song about a couple who's watching the sunset, enjoying the memories of their wedding earlier in the day! We play primarily our own love songs, but we will also learn and play up to 8 of your choice of cover songs, especially if you have particular songs in mind for the first dance, the garter and bouquet toss, or other special moments. Bonus item: For an additional fee, I will write a song for you that's based on your personal love story, and we will record it as a single to give to your guests. We'll also perform this song as the first dance! My musicians are among the very best that Austin has to offer, and we have been or are currently a part of other touring bands. We have performed at various wine bars, coffee shops and restaurants around town, as well as at the Hyatt, the Austin airport on the Ray Benson Stage, and at the Continental Club Gallery. Please visit my Facebook page Sherah & The Fine Souls to see what we're up to!

    I run a variety dance band called The Sophisticates based in Austin, TX. Philip and his techs from Head Water have provided consistent, professional service for every gig we've had the last two years. I have dealt with many sound technicians in my 30 years in this business, believe me when I say Philip Ramirez is a rising star in this industry!

    I met Zack many years ago and began to receive drum lessons from him. Having no prior knowledge or conceptual understanding, he slowly and patiently introduced me to the drums. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner and as my skills progressed his lessons were more in depth. Everything from basic music notation and theory to keeping time and advanced drum patterns were covered. Very easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable at your skill level. Never any judgements and plenty of positive reinforcement. Best drum lessons I've taken!

    Beau is an exceptional guitar instructor. He was quick to respond to any questions I had and arrived on time to my lesson. I don't have much experience playing guitar, but I feel we covered a lot of ground during the first lesson. He helped boost my confidence in playing and motivated me to practice during the time between lessons. His pricing was very reasonable and he was able to accommodate to my schedule and location. I look forward to more lessons to come and would highly recommend Beau.

    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.
