Are you for or against Wedding Traditions in 2017?

Published on July 11, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

When it comes to weddings nowadays, one thing that becomes more and more obvious is the tendency for young couple to put as much distance as possible between them and anything related to tradition. It almost seems like new couples or modern couples have lost their appreciation for anything related with traditions that were passes down from generation to generation. In all fairness, it also seems that most of these traditions and small rituals during the wedding have completely lost their meaning.

c47f6cacea6b1d76474d6d4b21614c4b

As opposed to what was going on a couple of decades ago, when couples about to get married at least had a vague idea of everything’s meaning, couples nowadays are obviously trying to avoid some archaic traditions that they do not understand and that mean absolutely nothing to them.  After all, doing extra things on your wedding day is a lot of hard work and it can also be a waste of time and energy, especially when you have no idea what you are doing.

However, there are still some things that modern couples have still kept and that are extremely popular. One of these things is catching/throwing the bouquet. This is quite an interesting and innocent tradition. Of course that we all know it’s meaning. After all, it is quite straightforward and there are no hidden meanings or anything like that. One other tradition that was kept is the bachelor and the bachelorette party.

However, there are also some habits that even if have never been considered traditions, they are still traditionally respected. For instance, having a mariachi band at the wedding is something that most people inn Arizona take into account. To be honest, a wedding without a mariachi band would be the absolute worst. After all, weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions, not celebrations where all the guests are stuck in their chairs.

Summer Quinceaneras, Summer Weddings, Summer Baptisms

Summer is a great season for a lot of events, including quinceaneras, weddings, graduation parties and baptisms. However, today we are only going to discuss about baptisms, why they are ideally held in the summer and, most importantly, why you should have a mariachi band present during this amazing event.  In Arizona most people call baptisms “bautizos”, which is the Spanish term for the celebration. The ceremony and the event itself basically mean the fact that the child is being dedicated to God, he or she is christened and is welcomed in the big Christian family.

 

This event usually takes place before the child turn one year old, but some families and some parents can even postpone the ceremony with a few months or even years. There are even cases when people only get baptized when they are already adults. In any case, the religious ceremony does not only involve the parents and the child, but a pair of god fathers as well. The god fathers serve as spiritual parents to the child and their purpose is to always offer them spiritual guidance.

The religious ceremony is always followed by a big party where the family gets together to enjoy the christening of its youngest member. This party is the perfect combination of good food, great drinks and, of course, Mexican folk music, which means a mariachi band. We could almost say that it has become tradition for every bautizo to have a mariachi band present during the party. There is no other genre of music that could better help the family celebrate this event that Mexican folk music.

And since we are talking about mariachi groups, you should know that Mariachi Alegre de Tucson Arizona is the best and most experienced mariachi group in the area. We have played at countless events and at countless baptism parties and we know exactly what songs to play in order to make everyone have a great time.

  • Lots of friends of friends
  • Plenty of guacamole
  • Lots of tortillas
  • Don’t forget a big bowl of salsa

Color is a very important part of a Mexican fiesta. Bright, vivid paper flowers can be in an arrangement on the table or can be draped like a garland over the dancing area. All colors are allowed at a fiesta, there are no rules about color in Mexico.

How do the Mexicans conduct a Funeral Mass?

Published on July 2, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

Nobody anticipates planning a funeral. The death of a family member or friend is not a pleasant experience. But we know all beautiful things do come to an end eventually. You don’t deserve to be wracked by grief, pain, loss and at the same time the stress of planning a funeral. That isn’t a healthy load for a human being’s mental health. Which is why we are offering to help you check off Funeral music on the list of things to arrange for a funeral.

Mariachi music sets the mood for a memorable funeral

Mariachi music sets the mood for a memorable funeral

It’s a well-known Mexican tradition, that in the event of a loss of a loved one, to focus on the celebration of life instead of deep mourning. While mourning is a natural and necessary step of grieving, we owe it to those who have passed to remember them fondly and celebrate their lives and achievements, not just wear black and gather in silence. Hiring a Mariachi is a wonderful way to set that mood of celebration. Any service which includes a Mass service can be improved with the right Mariachi group. Our set lists include songs for any occasion, even a funeral mass. While this is a celebration of life, there are still certain songs one expects for funeral services.

Hiring a Mariachi Band for Funerals

Hiring the performers at Mariachi Alegre de Tucson means you’re hiring a professional group of respectful musicians who will work with you to make sure this service is the best it can be. Our beautiful music will resonate with guests and hopefully stir up memories of those who have passed in a positive light. Let us help remind you and the attendees of the wonderful things your loved one(s) have done in their life and how each of them have been affected for the better because that person was in their life.

Welcome us into your family for a day to help send off a loved one to a better place. Funerals are for the dead, but they are also for the living, so keep that in mind.

Call to schedule our performers to attend any event you are planning, from holiday celebrations, birthdays, weddings, funerals, and more. We guarantee you’ll be satisfied with our professional musical skills as well as our ability to connect with guests—unless you want us to just blend into the background, that is. Make any gathering a celebration of life with the vibrant, cultural, historical, and beautiful music of a professional Mariachi.

Thank you for sticking with us all of these months and for hiring us to make your parties, celebrations, and gatherings special. As long as people love and appreciate this beautiful type of music, it will live on forever, like the memories of those who are no longer with us. Nothing truly dies until no one remembers it, so let’s keep the memories alive for generations to come!

Plan a Quinceanera with Mariachi Alegre de Tucson this Summer

Published on June 30, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

A Quinceañera is a girl’s coming-of-age ceremony deeply rooted in Mexican culture, where the girl renews her baptimal vows. A Quinceañera mass is not a Catholic sacrament, although it involves presenting the girl before God, and her promise to honor herself and her religion. A Quince is normally held around her 15th birthday. It is the Mexican version of the American “Sweet Sixteen” party. However, as opposed to the “sweet sixteen” party a Quinceanera tends to be a lot more traditional and more deep rooted into the Mexican culture. It basically represents the specific moment when the family introduces the teenage girl to the world. It somehow resembles a rite of passage, as the teenage girl is now introduced as a woman, a person who has grown up and evolved from the status of “teenager” to the status of “adult”.

Based on various old traditions (including Aztec ceremonies demonstrating readiness for marriage combined with Catholicism), the 15 year olds attend a Mass ceremony specially conducted for Quinceañeras. Initially, this elaborate ceremony was only held for girls from wealthier families but the trend of all Hispanic girls having a Quinceañera exploded in the US (and spread back to the areas of origin) to hold onto cultural identity.

Quinceañeras come in two parts: mass and the party. The Mass is often held with various girls celebrating their 15th year to save time, space, and number of services provided—much like baptisms. Girls are blessed by the priest and recommit themselves to their spiritual devotion (including placing a bouquet of flowers at the statue of the Virgin Mary). One symbol of entering adulthood is seen when the girl gives a porcelain doll (or other childhood toy) to a younger sister or other younger girl in her family. During the mass there is a chance of Mariachi groups playing music, though the main event where music is needed is the party! However, some churches discourage large parties so as not to draw attention to the real purpose of the Quinceañera, the entering into adulthood with the help and respect of the church.

Quinceanera plans in summer could be better with this last ingredient

As important and beautiful as the mass ceremony is, everyone gets excited for the party. Depending on income, these parties can be very large and lavish, but even on a budget they are fun and an amazing experience for the honoree—especially when the whole family and community help out (serving as madrinas and padrinos, like godparents). Not all families have had these parties in the past due to budget, but they are still held after most Quinceañera masses. Before the end of the party, the honoree’s father will remove the modest flats she went to mass and entered the party in and he will place high-heeled shoes on her feet to symbolize her entrance into womanhood.

What better way to embrace your heritage than to hire a skilled Mariachi group for your daughter’s Quinceañera? We can’t think of a better way. Our professional performers can play for both the mass and the party (and will discuss with the priests beforehand to ensure the proper music list). We are known for interacting with our guests instead of just acting as a human radio. Keep tradition alive and hire us for your next event—especially such a special night as a young girl’s transition into adulthood. She will never forget all of the fun she has dancing to the music of her ancestry.

Mariachi Alegre de Tucson and Seranata

Published on June 29, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

A Seranata, which is just the Spanish word for serenade, is just about one of the most romantic things to ever happen to a girl. If you are a girl, you will probably agree that having a group of handsome men singing love songs to you and you alone, is just about as good as it gets. The tradition goes like this: A young man who was “courting” a young lady would gather up some musicians and singers, and take them to his girlfriend’s house on her birthday.  The catch was that all this took place at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning.  So, while the girl was sleeping, the boy and his accompanists would get as close to her window as they could, and they would sing a love song to her and dedicate it to the girl with all his love.  Are you swooning yet?

 

Sometimes the song went like this:

“Disperta dulce amor de mi vida.

Disperta sit e encuentras dormida...”

or,

“Wake up, sweet love of my life. Wake up if you find yourself asleep”.

Then, continuing along with the tradition, the girl would come to her window and throw a kiss to her beloved.  In later times, she would thank him the next day.

Another good reason for a seranata was when a boy was too shy to tell a girl that he liked her.  So, after a couple of glasses of wine, he would get his musical companions to go with him to tell the girl of his, as yet, unspoken  love.  The next day, he would eagerly await her response, negative or positive.

Also, at times, the seranata would be a last ditch effort to restore the love of a girlfriend after a fight.  The songs the scorned lover would choose were songs that asked for her forgiveness and a return to their status quo.  At other times, the guy would ask the musicians to sing songs along the lines of “I really don’t care if you like me or not anymore”.  The opposite of romantic, no?

Another good reason for a seranata was when a boy liked a girl, but the girl’s parents did not like the boy.  In this case, seranatas could be set up to take place on a regular schedule for weeks.  This was to get the girl’s parents to see that he would persist until they gave him their blessing to “date” their daughter.

Another twist was the seranata that was trying to persuade the girl to dump her current boyfriend and start dating the guy who was sponsoring the seranata.  Hmmm… Doesn’t seem quite kosher, does it?

Whatever the reason you would like to have a seranata for your loved one, Mariachi Alegre de Tucson is the band to employ.  They can do seranatas that will accomplish any of the goals discussed.  They have songs that will break the heart, melt the heart, and change the heart, of any damsel within hearing distance of the tunes.

♥ Serenatas include 6 – 8 songs and the price is $235 if in the city of Tucson.
