Lynn hosted a reading at my birthday party in 2014. She was very professional; arrived early, very friendly, and extended her time for each guest. Each guest all commented on their enjoyment, ease of communication, and her skill. She is a joy to hire and comes highly recommended from our experience.

Every at the party commented on how great Eric was in engaging them into the trick as well as the tricks themselves. No one knew a magician was coming so was nice to have people surprised on what he was actually doing. His final trick as with myself in front of the guests and got a big round of applause. All and all he provided some good additional entertainment for the party. Thank you Eric!

Claudia was amazing! She face painted at an Oktoberfest party we hosted and everything she did was awesome. This is the 6th year I have hosted this event with facepainters and she is by far the best. Not only was her work awesome but she was smiling the whole time and several of my guests told me how much they liked Claudia. She painted for almost 5 hours and her faces were so intricate. We will definitely ask her every year from now on to be at our event.

Candid pix photo booths were awesome! The photo booth was the hit of the night! They arrived promptly on time and figured out where they were to set up the booth on their own at the venue. Busy hosting my daughters Quincenera party I had little time for my vendors! I highly recommend candid photo! Thank you very much!

We had him come to our son's 1st birthday party to entertain the older children who were there, and they all loved it!!! He tried to involve all the kids in the magic tricks so they all had a chance to help. He was very fun and entertaining. After he was done with the magic, he made all the kids there very own ballon animal or whatever they asked for. Highly recommend for a children's party.

I will be hiring her again for sure!!

I hired Eyes Across the Sky to do a photo booth for my husband's surprise 40th Birthday party... it was the hit of the night! Kyle was professional, a great communicator, punctual and his photo booth was great quality (including the props!). I've already recommended him to friends and plan to use him for events in the future! If you are looking for someone that has a great product and excellent service - call him today!

The violin guitar duo was a great idea for our outdoor wedding ceremony! Lali reached out to me with the idea when I had requested a project for a harp player. Although I am a bit bummed that I couldn't listen to their whole routine as I was getting ready indoors doing and last min preps before the ceremony. I was able to hear the song that the bridal party walked down the aisle to and the song I chose for me. All the guests complemented on how lovely the music was and that it was loud enough to hear. Lali was very responsive through email and was great about creating a timeline. They also have a wonderful song list to choose from. The only con would be that they required shade, which is understandable, but there was limited shade where we were (kind of far and would of looked awkward) and we had to rent an umbrella for them. I would suggest that Lali invests in an umbrella for clients. Wedding vendors are already playing the nickel and dime game with the bride and groom and it would be nice to have to worry about one less thing. Thank you for your amazing performance Lali!

So. Much. Fun! I figured this would be a blast but I really had no idea how very much I would enjoy it until my family all got in the booth! It was roomy enough for big groups, the backdrops were gorgeous, and we had a great time with the assortment of cute props. It's easy to use and I love my photos so much I framed them! The people at Shutter Love are obviously very happy to be doing this, are wonderful to work with, and can put together beautiful memory books with photos and notes from all of your party guests to remember the night by.

Having an extra helping of out of town relatives with us for the holidays, we decided to amp up the party atmosphere a bit. Since Grampa fancies himself a photographer he's never in the family album so we hired Celebrate!Selfies to outfox him. And boy, did that work!! Gramps, the kids, aunts, uncles and even the dog got into it. Hilarious! Great fun, best get-together with terrific pictures (and Facebook pix) to prove it. Big thanks to the Celebrate!Selfies crew who were professional, funny, and kept the party going with props and posing suggestions appropriate for all. Darn ol' Gramps photo-bombed everyone, whatta hambone! Thanks C!S. Great job, you'll be back!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

What is a photo booth rental?

A party photo booth is a fun, interactive experience where guests can take a series of photos (usually three or four) that are immediately printed out on a strip as a keepsake. When you rent a party photo booth, the company sets up the booth or photo station at your event; a photographer staffs the booth and coaches guests on how to use it throughout the event. Often the photo booth rental company provides props like silly hats, wigs and glasses. There are different types of party photo booth rentals. An open-air booth has a curtain or backdrop that allows more freedom of movement and enables more people to use it at one time. The traditional enclosed photo booths that you may have seen at the mall or the fair tend to cost more to rent, as they are harder to transport and also cost more for the pros to purchase. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.  

How many mariachis can a band have?

A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.

How much does a mariachi band cost?

A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

  • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
  • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
  • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.
