It is very clear that Emily knows what she is talking about. I have taken from other voice teachers here and there, and after my first lesson with Emily I learned SO MUCH that I could already start applying just walking out of my first lesson. It is clear she has well beyond the training and the experience than a lot of teachers out there. She is so musically genius, and very good at explaining something-be it vocal anatomy or something musical. And she has had so much experience professionally performing that she taught me so many details about microphones, and performing with a live band. It is so nice to have a teacher who accompanys you too. She helped me stylize my voice as well. I don't know what Emily can't teach you!

We couldn't have been happier with Jon Burgoyne and his band! They know how to entertain a crowd and keep the night fun and exciting. We had a country themed party and so they played some songs that fit that theme. Jon was awesome to work with and has amazing vocal/guitar talent. We were impressed and will definitely ask them to come again if we have other events! We would recommend him to anyone!!!

It was a 50th birthday party his group showed up and pretended to be part of the guests. No one knew except the host it was a great surprise for the party and the birthday girl. The crowd loved him and kept requesting songs. He was very gracious and responded to all requests. His enthusiasm professionalism promptness and desire to do a job above and beyond is amazing. I would hire him for any and all engagements where you would like to have that kind of spirit added to your function. Thanks again for a great memory.

I have hired Stephen Hughes in three different capacities. I hired him to teach my drum line for marching band season, and then hired him to teach private lessons to a group of students. I have also hired to him to perform with a professional wind orchestra as a percussionist. He is an outstanding educator with a very thorough understanding of how to communicate with students, how to work with colleagues, and how to develop and implement a plan. His pedagogy is sound, and his results are thorough. As a performer, he is very trustworthy on all different elements of the percussion section. His rehearsal demeanor is impeccable, and his preparation skills are thorough. He can be trusted implicitly as a performer and educator.

We booked this band for an event and we were happy that we did. The band showed up early and were very professional. They have mad playing skills - our guests all liked their acoustic guitar style and overall sound. Would recommend.

The Blue Diamonds played for our wedding reception and it couldn't have been a better fit. We wanted to have dancing and their volume was perfect for it. They have many band members/instruments and sound very good! Even when not a lot of dancing was happening people were getting up to dance with their kids. They also have an impressively large repertoire of songs to play. We were even able to request a few personal songs that they took the time to learn in time for the reception. We were impressed that as soon as we confirmed that they would be playing for us, Bob took the time to go to our venue and make sure they were aware of everything needed to do a good job!

    AMAZING!! They were so great! So professional, great musicians very professional! If you are looking to hire a Mariachi Band you won't go wrong with Mariachi Alama Ranchera. I would suggest sending them a list of songs you would like for them to play ahead of time but also they will do request when they get to the party. 10/10 I would recommend!

      About

      As both a band leader and DJ I am able to provide musical entertainment for all aspects of an event from start to finish. For some events, I DJ and play the saxophone. Other events I bring my band and also DJ. Gold Standard is comprised of three seasoned jazz musicians: Conn Curran (vocals) Bart Olson (drums) and Rob Bennion (DJ/Sax/Flute) with an affinity for vintage jazz style and electronic exploration. They are known for taking current popular hits and turning them into golden crooner renditions- combining serious DJ grooves with impressive acoustic chops. Their music spans from the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra, to a dance-infused electronic version of John Legend. They can turn a concert or event into a speakeasy or a dance club, or both.

      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.
