Spanish Guitar or Trio Mariachi

Recommended Posts

Me again....

 

I'm trying to make some decisions...and I was wondering what you guys think is better from experience....the Spanish Guitar guy or the Trio Mariachi. I can't afford the whole mariachi and honestly I don't even know if the "trio" is a mariachi??

 

I just want to have them for the ceremony and maybe cocktail hour but I only want to pay for an hour...so who knows....I must sound like a total cheapskate

We're going with the Spanish guitar for cocktail hour because my FI hates mariachi music. He'd kill me if I booked mariachis. It's slightly cheaper as well.

Yeah Maye quoted me $270 for spanish guitar and $325 for Trio Mariachi....

 

The price difference isn't huge...but I haven't heard either one so I don't know....Plus, I am still wondering if we even need it...I am really leaning toward the ipod thing and I could use the $270 for something else....

 

We will see...

Michelle, I would go with the guitar...only b/c i think it's a bit more romantic than a mariachi.

 

I'm not sure what the Trio would include though...guiar, violin & another piece maybe?

We went with Maye's trio - they don't play mariachi music. They're a traditional trio and they have a very large and varied list.

 

They were amazing. They even learned and played O Sole Mio for my processional. It was far more beautiful than I expected. My friend is a professional musician and he said that he was really impressed with them.

 

That being said, I don't think anyone will notice the difference between a soloist or a trio.

We had a solo classical guitar and he was a big hit. I would definitely spend the $$ again if I had to.

 

As for which one to choose, I think you probably can't go wrong. Either way it will provide some romance and ambience and I think your guests will like it. (And this is coming from a cheapskate myself :) )

Hi Janet,

What style was your solo guitarist? Who did you use? I know you said he was a big hit! We want to find someone who plays a mix of romance and flamenco style (something like a Gipsy Kings guitarist!).
