Brief History of Mariachi
Before the Spanish arrived in Mexico, the indigenous Peoples created music for their religious events using rattles, drums, reed and clay flutes, and conch-shell horn. When the Spanish introduced Christianity to Mexico, the indigenous mestizos and Indians were also introduced to musical instruments imported from Europe: violins, guitars and harps, brass horns, and woodwinds. Over time the natives began to merge their unique creativity with these musical instruments and modified it to suit their taste.
The Spanish introduced the concept of musical groups usually consisting of two violins, one harp, and guitars. The indigenes immediately adopted it and this gave rise to Mexican folk music. One of the popular musical styles was the son. Son’s musical style featured strings instruments and had varieties. The variety popular in the Jalisco area of Mexico was son jaliscence. This son’s jaliscence is what is now known as Mariachi.
Mariachi are street musicians that perform with violins, trumpets, and guitars. These musicians normally dress in traditional outfits that consist of smart suits. They can play a huge variety of music, both traditional and modern, in their special style.

Here are 10 reasons mariachi bands can make your weddings the best ones yet
1. Mariachi Bands are very romantic
You may not have known this, but we are going to let you in on our little secret. Mariachi bands can be very romantic if you make sure that you have set up the venue and the timing to best showcase the band. If you will, please picture the mariachi members dressed in their macho fitted suits with silver buttons gleaming. Candles are lit, the light in the room is low, and, from out of nowhere comes the band playing the loveliest, most romantic, most heart-tugging love song in their repertoire. As they begin to play, the bride and groom meet in the middle of the dance floor and begin to waltz while gazing into each other’s eyes. Every lady in the audience will tear up and every camera will flash as guests take a picture of this beautiful, heart-warming moment.
2. Kill Boredom
Do you ever have that wedding nightmare in which all your guests are sitting at their respective tables at the reception and are beginning to look bored? We know! What could be worse than bored guests? The only way to stop this recurring nightmare is to make sure that you have reserved your mariachi band for the reception. Sometimes the band leader can tell you about mariachi dance groups in the area. If they have any contacts, a dancer or two is a great way to get folks up on the dance floor. Even without a dancer to prime the pump, once the mariachi music starts, it is the rare person who can resist the happy, enthusiastic sound of the music played by a mariachi band. It’s an instant party starter.
3. Conversation starter
If you have a lot of guests who don’t know each other, mariachi can be one of the best conversation starters ever. The gaiety and happiness of the music and the friendly and out-going members of the band make people want to get to know each other. Mariachi “breaks the ice“.
4. No need for amplification
Since a mariachi band is small and does not need any sort of amplification, the price for their services often comes in lower than the price for other entertainment groups.
5. Engage the Children
Weddings are fun for everyone, including kids. You would be surprised at how quickly the children will hop onto the dance floor and join in the dancing. It’s instinctive. It’s organic. They can’t help themselves. They will be the life of the party.
6. Play any song at your Wedding
Mariachi bands, especially Mariachi Alegre de Tucson, can play just about any traditional and contemporary song that you throw at them.
7. Everybody is part of the party
If you are having a seated dinner, the mariachi can stroll among the tables and serenade your guests, and you, as you all enjoy your meal together.
8. Make Pictures better
A great idea is to have the mariachi band play while you are taking your church pictures. Letting them warm up the guests and pass the time while you are being photographed seems like a win-win, don’t you think? Margaritas included, of course.
9. Basically Fun
A mariachi band is fun. It’s a no-brainer. A mariachi band is just fun!
