Thomas worked with our band, Mustang Alley, taking us from a band of adequate musicians to a group really worth listening to. He provided stories, instruction, insight, and challenges, always with his off-the-wall sense of humor. Highest recommendation!

Jim Sevy is a very versatile entertainer. He is instrumentally professional and talented, witty and loves to entertain. He has sang and played guitar solo, and in a trio, he has been a part of a German Band for our Oktoberfests for 12years straight. I would recommend Jim Sevy for an outstanding musical performance.

We booked them for an outdoor venue, we had bands playing throughout the day. They put all of the others to shame. They are definitely a high-quality band. Everything was tight and professional. I'm surprised they are just a local band.

    This band will really surprise you. It's probably the tightest band I've ever heard for a local group. They are all very kind and easy to work with. They have really good harmonies which make them fun to listen to, and they played a venue for us for three hours straight and never played the same song twice. They play a lot of classic covers that people love to sing along to, but they will also play some great originals if you ask them to. I think what I liked best about them is that they are a really good dance band, and they'll cater their sound to whatever you want. We asked them to play some low-key stuff for the first hour while our company ate dinner and socialized and then once people were finished eating they turned it up a notch and started to play some rock and roll. They'll also do some group dances if you ask them to, and they'll even learn a specific song for your gig if you ask. We wanted them to learn three specific songs so we offered them an extra $75 dollars and they happily accepted. Also, they have all their own gear. Speakers, mixers, monitors, you name it. We'll definitely use them again. They are worth every penny. And of all the bands that we asked for a quote from, this band was the lowest quote, but the highest quality.

      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.
