Mariachi and Quinceanera this Summer

Published on June 29, 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”.

An honoree and her damas (maiden attendants)

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.

As important and beautiful as the mass ceremony is, everyone gets excited for the pa

rty. 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.

The magic of a Summer wedding is yours to grab. Here’s how.

Published on June 22, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

5F7Xg86The Summer weather is very ideal for outdoor events. It’s no wonder many brides prefer to have their weddings in summer. The bright surroundings, clear skies and warmth is great for creating a very romantic memory like tying the knot.

Yes, the daytime temperatures will be hot,  Native Arizonians have adapted pretty well to the high summertime temperatures in the dessert, but brides may want to follow some of these tips when creating their perfect wedding celebration. The time of day that you plan to have your wedding can make a very big difference in the comfort level of your guests.  There are some traditional times that most marriage ceremonies take place, but for a summer Arizona wedding, you might consider an early morning starting time or late afternoon.  You might even give paper parasols or beautiful paper fans to guests as a small gift, to shade and cool participants.  When evening comes, the temperature in Arizona becomes even more pleasant.

You might consider serving frosty beverages before, during, and after your ceremony.  Lovely punch and fruit drinks, cocktails or “mocktails”, with colored straws to match your wedding theme could be a delicious, cooling,  and festive addition to the affair.

When planning your reception menu, think cool salads, colorful fruit canapes, ice cream stations, and lots of cold water.  Food, appetizers, and desserts should all be cool and refreshing.

Luckily, the intense heat of the sun is dry heat, no humidity, so shade can make a huge difference in the temperature you are experiencing.  Make sure your venue has shade trees, a pavilion, or a covered patio.

Make plans to have water, bottled or otherwise, available at all times.  Get the word out to your guests that hydration is of utmost importance in this part of the country.  Folks will get busy with the ceremony and all the activities attached to the festivities and may forget to drink their water.  Guests should receive  frequent reminders to drink, drink, drink.

Most Arizona outdoor venues have evaporative coolers available which add a mist component to the outdoor fans and do a good job at keeping friends and family comfortable.

It probably goes without saying that great entertainment will keep your guests’ minds off the heat.  In Arizona, one of the most popular forms of wedding music is the Mariachi Band.  George Bejarano of the Mariachi Alegre de Tucson, and his crew have been entertaining at weddings for well over 30 years.  They know how to make wedding guests have fun, but most of all, they know how to make the bride happy.  From the festive tunes that get everybody out on the dance floor, to the beautiful seranatas sung to the bride, you are going to be glad that you included Mariachi Alegre  in the party.

Mariachi Alegre can play whatever event you need in that we are an all-purpose Mariachi with over 40 years experience. Somos Mariachi Alegre. Podemos tocar en cualquier evento…no le hace si es boda quincenera cumpleanos reunion, divorcio o Misa funeral. Tenemos mucha experiencia, mas que 40anos. Reasonable rates/costo: 225hr (hra) in Tucson (en tucson) 250hr (hra) in Tucson suburbs (en los suburbios) 800/2hr (hra) min outside of Tucson area (afuera de Tucson).

Let’s Spice up Quinceañera and Graduation Parties

Published on May 8, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

No need to mention that graduation is a very special and remarkable event in a young person’s life. Same goes for quinceañeras. What great way to mark these times and show them just how much we love and proud we are of them than to throw the most amazing party in Arizona. All in their honor.

 

Quinceañera


When a young girl turns 15 it’s time to show the world how beautiful this new woman is! There’s a lot to know and the internet is full of theme ideas, history, traditions, instructions and more. We can help with some of that! Our services are great for the mass ceremony as well as the big party the girls will look forward to! Mix it up and have some pre-recorded music part of the time and a Mariachi for the big moments and to encourage the older crowd to dance and have fun while reminding the younger attendees where they came from and how beautiful this traditional music can be! Don’t let this art style die out, show them how mariachi performances go with any celebration and keep your little quince girl interested in her heritage and encourage her friends to think twice before scoffing at a mariachi group.

Graduations

 

Graduation party

Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and all walks of College or University graduations are a big deal for these kids! We’re not saying you should throw a party at every graduation level, but some of the big ones call for a fiesta! Middle School can be a big deal for these kids so show them how proud you are by throwing a party for their family and friends—get the whole neighborhood involved—and encourage them to keep working hard.

High school graduations are a great time to bring in even more family and friends and throw a party at a nice venue or stick to a home party or something in a park. Throw in a Mariachi group and get everyone laughing and dancing the night away to celebrate the achievements of your graduates! One last big party before they start worrying about colleges, jobs, and their adult lives to come!

From Associates degrees to Ph.D’s and Masters, college/university graduation is a big deal! We can’t let those achievements go unnoticed! Throw your graduate a party for friends, spouses, children, and other relatives to bring everyone together before they dive head-first into the work force with their new degrees and skills! Wish them luck and show them how to have a good time before their life becomes their jobs or family. Reminisce about past graduations, staying up late to study, and stressing about finals and celebrate the new chapter that is about to begin!

Mariachi Alegre de Tucson is always ready to make the party for your quince girl or your coming-up-in-the-world graduate and everyone else involved better and special. We’ll be honored to dispense a great dose of the Mexican tradition in these events.

LET’S CELEBRATE GRADUATION WITH YOU

Published on May 8, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

Graduations are around the corner. Your teenagers are prepping for college life and getting ready to be part of the work force. It’s quite an achievement you know, some of their mates couldn’t make it that far for one reason or another but your kids did. Therefore, a party great or small can display how proud you are of their progress and give them the needed motivation to take the next step and make you even more proud them.

Graduation party

Graduation party

High School

Bring the family and your graduates friends by for a large party to celebrate this awesome achievement. Hire a mariachi for ambient music and great music to dance to! Watch your graduates enjoy a night with friends and relatives and hold on to that memory for soon they’ll be in college or working full time and before you know it they’ll be full blown adults living with a family of their own. Throw a party and remind them of their culture (or at least the culture of the great state of Arizona, combining Mexican and American for generations!)

College graduates will be itching to celebrate their Associate Degree, Bachelor’s Degree, and higher with friends, family, and colleagues. So surprise your college grad with a large party with amazing music (provided by our Mariachi, of course), food, and people they love!

If you’re the college grad and you want to throw a big party you should go for it! Go all out, you only graduate college once (unless you go back for a higher or second degree) so celebrate with everyone, especially those who helped you get to where you are today. So before you dive head first into the work place with your new degree at your side you should live a little. Hire a Mariachi and dance the night away. No one will be sitting still or think the night is boring with our performers at your party. Not only will they provide amazing music with minimal acoustic equipment but they’ll also treat you like long time friends and family, interacting with guests, taking requests, and being respectful the entire time.

Graduating is always a special time and a hallmark in anyone’s life whether kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, high school, or any level of college/university. As a college grad, you know you’ve worked pretty hard for that degree – it most certainly is an accomplishment – why not throw a party and invite your family and friends to share in your joy. The party doesn’t have be a grand event, but if it must, go ahead. You can also collaborate with other college graduates and their families and split the cost among yourselves. Mariachi Alegre de Tucson would also love to celebrate with you and supply you with the perfect music for the event. It will be a night to remember!

Easter Over, Wedding Season Begins

Published on April 19, 2017 by in Mariachi Band

It is the end of Easter and this means the beginning of wedding season. There is nothing as romantic and magical as a wedding. Everything from the preparations before the big day, to the solemn religious ceremony and the fun reception is so important and so exciting to plan, not to mention to actually be a part of it!

There is no doubt that weddings are probably one of the most important rites of passage that anyone could go through. And, over the years, we have managed to turn them into wonderful celebrations which include the whole family and, in some cases, even the whole community.

Bride, Groom, and Mariachi Band

When it comes to weddings, everything is important and everything needs to be spotless (otherwise the bride might turn into bridezilla, and nobody wants that). The wedding dress needs to be perfect, the setting, the food, the cake – everything has to be just right for the big day. We all know just how much preparation goes into planning a wedding. There are so many things the groom and the bride (something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue) need, that there often seems to not be enough time to do everything that needs to be done.

Like we said before, the wedding dress needs to be perfect, the bridesmaids need to look amazing as well, the food needs to be delicious and the setting has to be just right. And in order for the setting to be right, apart from balloons and other decorations, you also need amazing music. And what better way to celebrate a wedding if not with Mexican folk music and with a great live band?

Mariachi Alegre de Tucson Arizona is one of the most experienced and skilled mariachi bands in the area. We have the most amazing musicians who can play somewhere over 2000 songs. We have played at countless weddings and other events and we have always set the right mood. We can guarantee that our professional mariachi will help everyone have a great time, because everybody loves mariachis. Children and grandparents alike will want to join you on the dance floor and help you celebrate this amazing event!

T95

Your wedding is definitely one of the moments or one of the days that you will never forget for as long as you live. However, you have the opportunity to make this day memorable for the rest of your family and friends. Booking our Mariachi band will ensure that every guest has a great time and is left with a wonderful experience that he will still remember over the years.

More than that, you can enjoy the amazing music played by our mariachi at the most affordable prices in the area. We can guarantee that you will not be able to find a cheaper mariachi band. If you live in the Tucson area our services come at a staggeringly low $225 per hour. We can even play outside of Tucson for $700 per two hours.

Are Wedding Traditions necessary in your wedding?

In this modern era, it seems more and more new couples put as much distance as possible between their weddings and the long-standing traditions that have been passed down from generations to generations. Before it was usual for the newly weds to have at least a vague idea of the meaning surrounding these wedding traditions before their wedding. But now it 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.

4128354497_dd0df71f96_o (1)

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.

This is exactly why having a good mariachi band at your wedding is highly important. Thankfully for you, the best mariachi band in Tucson still has a few available spots this summer. Mariachi Alegre de Tucson Arizona has taken part in countless weddings and ceremonies. We have highly experienced musicians who know exactly what and when to play. However, as we have mentioned before, we only have a few opened spots left for this summer. You might want to put a speed on things and contact us as soon as possible, otherwise you might end up without a bad for your wedding.

Do not hesitate to give us a call and we will make sure to turn your wedding into an unforgettable celebration! We guarantee that you will be more than pleased with our music and our out of the ordinary professionalism. We really are the number one mariachi band in Tucson! You should see that for yourself!
