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 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

    The Michael Benson Band was the highlight of our wedding reception. Every person we've talked to said how awesome the band was. The band is amazing and can play anything. Michael personally made sure we were enjoying the music.

    Since January 2014, I have been studying guitar with David in a weekly group improvisation ensemble. We play well-known rock and blues tunes. Playing in this group under David's leadership has greatly improved my confidence and ability to play rhythm guitar, and also to improvise melodies using minor and major scales over chord changes. David provides a very supportive atmosphere for playing creatively, and every session is fun and inspiring. I always leave feeling motivated to practice during the week on my own. David is also a master of working patiently with a variety of musical skills and abilities among our group members, and helping the group listen to each other and encourage each other. I highly recommend David as a guitar teacher for both private and group study.

    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!

    Pyramid Scheme was everything we hoped for and more. The interaction with them before, during and after the performance was perfect. Their repotoire is excellent, they adjusted the sound level right to the size of the room and the crowd, normal discussions were still possible without loosing any intensity of the songs played. Even joining the band to play a few numbers together using their instruments was possible. Would definately hire Pyramid Scheme again if we need entertainment in the area.

      I hired this jazz combo to play during the reception at my wedding and they were fantastic! They showed up on time, they were very professional, musically they were tight, and they came practiced and prepared! Not only did they perform above and beyond the day of, but they also took time to talk with me and make sure we were all on the same page of what I was expecting from them and the style I was hoping for. I didn't really have specific song requests, but mostly just explained the style I was going for and left it up to them to put together a good mix. They did not disappoint! They met my expectations and went above and beyond, and they really put that final touch on the reception that I was hoping for! :) I highly recommend them!!

      I was a piano student with Larry Schacher for two years. I had classical training but was interested in learning about jazz, blues, and improvisation. I was nervous to start, but Larry soon put me at ease, helping me transition to the new style I was attempting to learn. Larry teaches with patience and understanding while keeping the process entertaining and challenging.

      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!

        Ed Mays Groove Kitchen’s music is full of jazzy delta blues, pop, rock and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own way. It’s kind of like stepping back in time, but with the keys to the Porche. This group - is undeniably charming, and undeniably entertaining. Not to mention pretty darn talented. Our guests ranged in all ages, and everyone loved Ed Mays Groove Kitchen. If you want your wedding reception, or whatever event to really "Groove", book this band! -Christy K, Seattle, WA

        We are very happy with Bloomfield Music's service! The 3 piece band we requested included piano, flute, and cello. They sounded wonderful, were very professional, accommodating, and well prepared. They played a mix of classical and contemporary/pop pieces for my husband's 50th birthday party. Highly recommended!

        They did the best classics, and new stuff too, it was so fun! So nice to have a real live band and not a DJ. We were getting compliments on the band all night. Such a great time! Thanks Highsteppers, you rock.

        I hired Detour Band for a private party in Everett! They had a lot of energy and I loved how the songs were mixed together. They did a great job at playing music in between their sets and had awesome lighting! I was very satisfied and would definitely hire them again and would recommend them to everyone!! I loved how the singer got out and danced with the crowd in between her sets.. So much energy!! I love Detour!!

        About

        I guess that would depend on which service we're referring to here; as far as karaoke goes I feel that it's because I add to the performance of the singer by playing assorted instruments, backing vocals, and an above average mix. These things combine to create a much more authentic feel for a singer. As far as instruction, I use a much more informal and flexible style that I feel is less rigid for a new student and allows for more creativity and enhanced advancement.

        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.
