My husband's family is Mexican and our ceremony and reception were going to include the Mexican culture, so I really wanted to also have a Mariachi Band. I looked around for a while and could not find one that really seemed like a reliable choice, so I gave up. Well about 2-3 weeks before my wedding, I decided to look one more time to see if I could find one. I found Mariachi Ameca on some review website for different vendors (I don't remember the name) and called them after checking through their website. They gave me all the information and seemed fairly reliable, so they sent me a contract, I signed and sent a deposit. I decided to surprise my fiance, so he had no idea until he walked into our reception on the day of and heard them playing. It was just such a nice addition to our wedding and they did a wonderful job! Everyone seemed to be talking about them and felt that they were a really good Mariachi Band. They definitely take pride in their work and it showed. If we need a Mariachis in the future, we will definitely be calling them :) I gave four stars instead of five just because the price was a little expensive for our 1 hr of cocktails that they performed. I asked if they could have fewer members (they had 9 I think) for a lower price, but on the weekends they said they need to have all ten, which I guess makes sense. Anyways, good service and accommodating for a last minute request!

We hired Mariachi Ameca for our wedding a week before, and we are very happy we did. Not only did Mariachi Ameca play incredible (in tune and with such great emotion), but it also knew and played each song that was requested. As a previous mariachi member myself, I was amazed at how professional and friendly this mariachi band was. We had family and friends talking about how they really enjoyed the mariachi band. Thank you Mariachi Ameca for making our day extra special. Arriba Mariachi Ameca!!

Bad business decision they stood us up on our wedding! A deposit was given months in advance and we confirmed a day prior on location and time. On our day they were no shows!! The bride stood outside the church for over an hour in tears, contact was made with them and they stated they were on their way running late to the North Side. The church was on the SOUTH SIDE! After telling them this they immediately hung up and ignored my calls for the rest of the day. I ended paying more money to extend our photos, reception and DJ. It was a disaster they obviously doubled booked and we had to be the ones they screwed. We did get our deposit back and they offered a free hour at no cost. Really? Do you think we would expect you guys to show up for free? Well guess what a year later I took up on that offer for my new born's baptism . Can you guess what happened next? They caught amnesia and didn't know what the hell I was talking about . STAY AWAY! SHAME ON THESE PEOPLE! The listed address is the owner's home "Jamie Cervantez" STAY AWAY STAY AWAY!
