Mariachi Ameca was amazing! They made our wedding a hit! They showed up on time, and played beautifully! They also let me sing Tu Solo Tu with them! We were kinda wishy washy since my husband and I aren't very organized, and we called them the week of with the final confirmation on the start date for our reception, and they were super accommodating. I'd absolutely recommend them in a heartbeat and I hope to use them again! My husband is Mexican and I am American, and they sang both in English and in Spanish and both of our families loved them.

I saw the mariachi's promo video on youtube and fell in love with their sound!! My dad wanted to pay for the mariachi as our wedding gift and asked me to find the one I wanted to book.
I'm Mexican and my husband is American (African-American from mom's side and German from dad's side). What I loved about Mariachi Ameca is that the male lead singer said he was musically trained with a Frank Sinatra style. At our wedding, I asked if they could sing "My Way" (which was covered in Spanish with mariachi a few years ago). To my pleasant surprise, he sang it in English!! My husband's side LOVED IT!!!!!!!!
My dad sang a few songs with them (mom is his #1 fan) and they sounded great together!! A lot of guests asked if he had rehearsed with the mariachi before the wedding!! I believe a true test for these great musicians is how well they adapted to dad's singing style from the very first song! The female lead signer also stepped up to sing backup with my dad during the chorus of the songs. It was flawless!!!!
They also went around and sang a song to each table, which our guests really appreciated. They interacted with guests by allowing the to sing hooks of songs and encouraging them to sing along. Also, per my request, they wore their white mariachi outfits.
Thank you Mariachi Ameca!! Our photographer took great pictures, which I will be emailing to them for their use!
