    For all others interested...

    I finally gave up on e-mailing Mariachi Internacional Los Cabos. I had my Dad call them directly (he's fluent in Spanish). Now I've got them booked for my wedding.

    The only phone number for them that worked was cell: 52-624-151-5529.

    Cost = $450 / hr
    Musicians = 8

    fax = 52-624-143-6099

      I finally got the church music settled. The priest recommended the group Dueto Amigo (guitar, harp, vocals) I had to have my Dad call them (in spanish).

      Dueto Amigo

      Humberto Arredondo 52-624-141-5447

      Cost = 2500 - 3500 pesos depending on how many musicians ($220-$307 USD)

      Bride can choose songs.

      I hope this helps everyone....

        Hi all! I’m trying to decide between DJ Antares (Sistema Sound Control) and DJ David Flores (AVL Systems). Does anyone have any compelling pros/cons in favor of one over the over? They’ve each quoted me $200 an hour.

        Thanks,

        MariaElena

          I am using both, so I wish I could help, but I hope they are both good! :) I haven't heard of any brides who have used David for DJing, and Antares gets okay reviews. I don't know who I would choose...

            As you might imagine I know both very well (I live here), and they are both great, DJ Antares has a little bit more knowledge in tecno, but I recommend both.

              Maria Elena -- Can't wait to hear your review of the mariachi band! When you get back, would you mind sharing which songs you enjoyed the most? I called your mariachi and I might be using them, too (I speak Spanish so that helped). Thanks for posting the contact information. Have a blessed wedding!

              By the way, you got a great deal at $400 hour. I got them for $450/hour. Jose Luis just hired a new lead singer from Guadalajara; that region is reputed to have the best mariachi in all of Mexico. Plus it's high season. I'm just happy to have them. :-)

                Hi,
                There is another DJ in town Dj Mijares, he's fee is $150 dlls per hour, has a lot of experience on weddings, he works with many hotels, wedding coordinators, and wedding companies.
                Actually he was the DJ yesterday for the wedding of Karla and Tim that are also on this forum, maybe they can give you some reference.

                I also know Antares he is my friend, he is also good , but I've never heard of David Flores.

                  Hi everyone,

                  It has come to my attention, that a lot of brides ask about Dj info and references, I would like to recommend DJ Mijares he has a lot of experience on weddings, which is he's primary area, he works with a lot of hotels, wedding coordinators, and wedding companies, and has a lot of knowledge on the music area and used to work at Cabo Wabo, he's fee is $150 dlls per hour, he was also the Dj yesterday at Karla & Tim's wedding yesterday, also on this forum, maybe they can give you some reference. You can contact him at djmijaress@prodigy.net.mx

                  I also know Dj Antares he is my friend, he's a good Dj also but he is more of a techno and electronic DJ, I will also recommend him if you are into this kind of music.
