The Requinto is a beautiful Mariachi Guitar with a bright, responsive tone similiar to a Classical guitar, but with a higher pitch and a traditional body style. The Requinto plays lead in Mariachi bands, and is often used to form the "trio romantico," a traditional folkloric style of Mariachi music.

Some Tips on Hiring Mariachis

1.) Speak to the Group Representative and ask questions.
2.) A regular mariachi group consists of from 5 to 9 members. Three musicians are a trio.

3.) Many groups charge per group member, ask how many members their price includes.

4.) Student groups generally charge less per member, but have larger groups and may have a limited repertoire.

5.) All-Female groups are really great but very few exist. Their rarity commands a premium. Rates are usually 15% to 25% higher than all-male or mixed groups.
6.) If you're in doubt about hiring a certain group, ask to hear a sample of their music, YouTube video or ask to attend a rehearsal. Groups should be happy to oblige.

 7.) You should ask for a contract, especially if you leave a deposit. Make sure it specifies minimum players, per hour rate, number of hours, time allowed for cancellations both sides.
Good groups should have no problem with signing a contract and granting any specific requests (color of suits, female groups, exotic instruments, special songs, hour to begin, etc.,)

Another option to hiring a mariachi group online
is to visit the famous Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights, LA, Ca. 
Every day the 
plaza is a gathering place for musicians looking to be hired. As potential clients drive by or walk in the plaza representatives from different groups will offer their business cards in hopes of booking your request. 

The Mariachi and Trios groups have affordable rates and most have references. Groups can vary from 3 (trio) to 9 members.

 Many musicians live in the Mariachi Hotel across from the plaza, or in other parts of the Boyle Heights community.

 The responsibilities these musicians carry come from many generations of embracing tradition, culture, history, and the proud sense of having something truly wonderful...Mariachi !
