Frequently Asked Questions
Below are our Frequently Asked Questions. If you any questions not listed here or want any other information about Los Salazar, you can call or text Carlos at 714-588-7228 or email him at Carlos@LosSalazarMusic.com
Do you have a minimum of hours?
Not necessarily. However, our single hour rate is our highest rate.
How much do you charge?
Our hourly rates range from $300 to $390 (plus possible traveling fees). Here is a rough estimate:
For a single Hour: $390/hour
For two hours: $350/hour
For three hours or more: $330/hour
Our rates are on a per event basis. For example, if the trio is performing for two hours at an event that is 45 miles away, the rate would be higher than if it was for the same length only 5 miles away. Every event is different. Distance traveled, day of the week, regular date vs. holiday, time (6am vs. 4pm), etc. All these factors come into play.
Do I have to give you a deposit to confirm the booking?
Yes. This is mainly what seals the deal. The booking isn’t confirmed until we have received a deposit.
How much is the deposit?
The required deposit is only $50 per booked hour plus a $15 booking fee. So, to book for a couple hours, the deposit would be ($50 x 2) + ($15 booking fee) = $115.
Is my deposit refundable?
No. Deposits are non-refundable unless agreed otherwise by both parties. If there’s a special circumstance, talk to us about it; we will do our best to work something out.
Do we need to give you a song-list?
Sure; however, we strongly suggest for the trio to have the liberty to select the songs since they know which songs are successful (most of the time) and most importantly, appropriate. Nonetheless, the client is the boss. If you insist to give us a song-list, no problem!
How much time do you need for set-up?
About 5 minutes.
Do you guys take breaks? If so, for how long?
Yes; for engagements of two hours, the trio usually performs for about an hour and then takes a 15 minute break and then plays for 45 more minutes.
How many musicians are in the group?
Los Salazar is made up of 3 family members; father, daughter, and son.
What instruments do you play?
Rhythm Guitar, Guitarróns (Mariachi Bass), and Requinto (Mexican Lead Guitar); all of the members sing and play an instrument. So, you’ll be hearing music from 6 sources; 3 voices and 3 instruments
Do you need for me to give you guys a set-list?
No. In fact, we strongly recommend that you give Los Salazar as much freedom as possible to select songs according based on their experience.
Do you take song-requests on the spot?
Yes. If it’s a traditional Mexican song, odds are we will know it.
Do you perform anywhere open to the public?
Yes. Los Salazar performs on a regular basis @ South of Nick’s in San Clemente EVERY 1st Sunday of the month from 1:30pm to 5:30pm.
Our party is pretty small, in our backyard, it’ll be at our home; probably no more than 40 guests. Do you guys do that?
Absolutely! We love intimate settings; in all honesty, these types of settings are our favorite since we can interact with the guests.
