My children an I adore Jeff as a teacher. Like one of the other posters mentioned, he's easy to have around. He's very polite, punctual, funny, kind, prepared and soft spoken. Without question our children will look back when they are adults and say that Jeff was their favorite teacher, EVER!! It is evident that he looks for and finds the special sparkle in each of his students and helps them bring it out musically. He's a talented singer, pianist, and guitar player. Because he periodically plays or sings along with the children, they feel like they are part of a really cool band and can't wait for their next lesson. He is in demand, yet he makes our children feel like they are his only students because of sweet personality. Jeff has mastered the art of providing the framework to learn while having fun. Our girls practice often because they want to keep playing the lively pieces he teaches them. Jeff's super power is helping students feel great about themselves and excited to learn music. My wish is that we could clone Jeff, and let all students take their first, fifteenth, or last music lessons with him. Vicki

I hired this band for my parents anniversary party on April 1, 2017. It was intended to be a surprise party for their 55th year of marriage but the word leaked out to my mom. The part she didn't know about was that there would be live music. I contacted the band, the "Funaddicts", and after several quick and responsive communications with Robert, I hired their 50's/60's project "Bobby Sox & the Jukebox" to perform nostalgic music for the party. Throughout the evening I heard literally every, young and old, talking about the band and how fantastic they were! The music was so great, the vocals and instrumentals were truly spot on and people in the crowd were asking me where I found this band. If I had to name the band I would call them "The Fantastics" because that's really what they were! I would highly recommend them to anyone and that's exactly what I will do when I continue to talk about the great party we had. Than you, "Fundaddicts", for completing a night for my parents that they said they will never forget! Pauline Renick

Neal has been a teacher and a mentor to my son, Ethan since the 1st grade...now my son attends college at University of San Francisco and still derives pure pleasure in playing his guitar, thanks in much part to Neal's positive influence! Neal is an exception musician and shares his passion with his students. My son started with Neal at a young age and took lessons weekly with Neal until he graduated high school. It's the one "scheduled activity" we could never take away from him because he enjoyed it so much. It's hard to verbalize what a positive impact Neal made in my son's musical development growing up, along with just the terrific role model and friend he is to Ethan. Neal has coached Ethan through numerous Variety shows, Battle of the Bands, small local gigs, school performances and the very prestigious So Cal Honors Jazz band! Neal is the best - and very versatile. He teacher because he loves it.

Rouge played a great mix of dance music. They specially learned to songs in Estonian (the most beautiful language in the world, but also one of the most difficult languages in the world...). They were well received by dancers ages 3 through 99.

I came across the Aqua-Nets at a charity event where they were playing 80's music. I had been debating having a 50th birthday party and having thoroughly enjoyed my evening, I booked the band for my party. The band manager made the planning very easy. The band were professional and really created a great atmosphere for my party. All my guests had a great time and mentioned how they hadn't danced in years. I would highly recommend the Aqua-Nets for your event. The performers will entertain your guests and I have no doubt they will make your event a complete success.

I hired Lex to play at my indie film premier a couple of years ago. He arrived early, brought a quality drummer and a stand-up base player. The group classed up the place. They played some high-energy jazz and also a few familiar rock tunes. The crowd was lively and his band was up to the task of maximizing and adding to the experience. As it was time to encourage the crowd to make their way out, the band slowed down the music which assisted in the "closing time" process. It was a great time and it added a level of professionalism and joviality to my event. I definitely recommend Lex as he was a true pleasure to work with.

I am a bit of an audiophile so I'm picky about music and bands. These guys are excellent musicians. They have an extensive list of songs they cover and each song was played extraordinarily well. Definitely recommend them to a friend; but I don't have to because my friends were here and they loved the band too. Dave Orr Kelso Wa

    Lauren was able to accommodate a last minute request to play at my son's rehearsal dinner, when the musician we had hired had a medical emergency. As it turned out, I was SO much happier with Lauren and her harp than I would have been with a Jazz band - she provided the perfect accompaniment to an intimate gathering of close friends and family of the bride and groom. She plays beautifully, and I highly recommend her!

    RL is a phenomenal instructor. Besides his ability to shred, he is a master in music theory and can convey his knowledge in a very understandable way. He is well versed in all the genres, from jazz to rock and everything in between. He has had a huge impact on my playing. My lessons with RL are the most rewarding part of my week. Go Seahawks!

    Trust me you want this Guy for your Social Events!! So glad the Hula Girls cancelled out, I'm most confident they couldn't match up to his entertainment...and I've seen plenty of fantastic Hula/Polynesian dancing. Hire this Guy!!! You won't regret it. I'm just ever so grateful he was available for my husband's big Harvey Five Oh Party. It was a HiT!!!

    I use Ian for our monthly music and all of our Wine Club releases as well. He is always professional, easy to work with, and always demanded by our guests to come back. If you are looking for the perfect sound, from a dependable musician, look no further. I highly recommend Ian (and his band if you have the space for it) for any event. He can rock any room, and he can also serenade any audience as well. He also brings an audience with him, and his sound draws in anybody within range. And unlike a lot in his profession; he is dependable and always incredibly easy to work with. Thank you Ian!

    Good Co played the reception at our annual conference and did a great job setting the mood. Our event was smaller than we had originally expected, but the band played on like it was a packed house. Everyone in attendance really appreciated their performance and I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere than what Good Co created. Great music, a great presence, and worth every penny!

    He is the best guitar teacher! Especially if you are into theory side of the music. I'm a singer with a degree in music, but he still has so much more to teach me. He'll show you the right path to take you to the next level. Also I've seen this guy shred on his acoustic guitar. I'm pretty sure he has more than 2 hands and 10 fingers. By hiring him as a solo guitar player for your event, you will get like a band worth of complete sound.

    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.
