Mariachi Australia Testimonials

“Now that I’m back from a short break after an amazing event onboard Carnival Spirit. I wanted to say a HUGE Thank You for Marc & the band. OMG… they were an absolute hit and the Cruise Director wanted them to stay onboard.”

“The guys were so extremely professional & fun… a perfect match for the Carnival Cruise Lines Brand.”

Drew, Carnival Cruises

“It has taken a while, which I apologise for, but please let me pass on my thanks to the whole band for an amazing performance at last week’s Microsoft event. You were all great to work with right from the beginning in the planning stages up to the final performance.”

“I also want to acknowledge how appreciative I was of your flexibility in helping us to come up with a song to perform with Paul [McDermot] The band and Paul all really seemed to enjoy performing together and it provided a great closing moment for the event.”

“I wish you all the best and hope that we get the chance to work together again in the future – not only because I still want to get La Bamba on to a play list – but also because I think you rock (in a Mariachi way!).”

Jonathan, Jack Morton Worldwide

“Marc’s voice is beautiful and our staff are unanimous in saying that Marc Santillana’s band was fantastic – some people enjoyed dancing to the lively music and everyone else enjoyed the cheerful atmosphere their music evoked. Their Mexican attire added to the festive spirit. They were also very polite and we would highly recommend them for anyone looking to add a delightful fun, artistic atmosphere from private to business parties. We passed by a few other charter vessels in Darling Harbour and our staff commented that the other vessels’ occupants looked a bit glum, whereas our staff were thoroughly enjoying themselves at all times.”

“We highly recommend Marc Santillana’s mariachi band for any type of occasion. They were fabulous artists, created a fun, lively atmosphere, and were very polite and hard working.”

Mike, Pym’s Technology Lawyers

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful time we all had listening and dancing to Marc’s band… also to Rebecca for her exceptional organisation skills.”

“The band was perfect and it was exactly what we wanted to create an atmosphere for our Corona-Style bar launch. Excellent.”

I still remember the moment they walked into the room, it was such a surprise for all guests and even I knew about it, I was as excited as everyone else or even more…,Everyone absolutely loved the band, we felt that having the mariachi in our wedding made such a difference, especially because it made our wedding stand out and be unique, I know our guests and us will always remember it as the highlight of the night! It was fantastic! We loved it! ….PS: I have to also said that I’m grateful not only with the band but also with you [Rebecca], as I felt you were always helpful and communicative and patient with my one million questions and requests. So very satisfied with your customer service too…thanks!”

Angela, Bride

“Thank you so very much for an incredibly vibrant performance at our wedding! We did not tell anyone that you were going to be there so it was a lovely surprise and you were the talk of the day. You and and your musicians were all wonderful. And your violinist is a true gem – once she started playing Bridal Chorus by Wagner it had the bride sobbing and snorting down the aisle! Thank you for bringing a small part of Mexican culture to our wedding. You really helped to make it a special day. Also, a big thank you for staying back those extra minutes due to the bride being late. Ha ha.”

Mia and Aaron, Bride and Groom

“Could I say that the band was tremendous. They were on time, played non-stop and the music selection was first rate. Having the band play was certainly a surprise for our guests and particularly the bride and groom and provided great entertainment for everyone whilst the register was being signed and photos taken. The sound of lively song, guitar and trumpet over Gunamatta Bay was something special!”

Neil, Father of the Bride

“I just wanted to let you know that Marc and the band were AMAZING! It couldn’t have been any better!! The performance blew my mum away! I’d just like to thank you and the band for all the organisation and preparation! The experience from speaking to you through to the performance was first class.”


“Can you thank the musicians for their wonderful performance on Friday night. Everyone loved it! It was a great surprise for my son. Our family and most of the guests are musicians and appreciated the high standard of the performance.”


“Thank you so much for co-ordinating our Mariachi booking for last Saturday.

Marc and the lads were a total hit, I knew they would be – they were absolutely fantastic and everyone enjoyed their performance so very much.

I look forward to hopefully having another opportunity to book them again, perhaps next year.”
