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!

Ron recordered us live Saturday night October 17th as we played for a block party. I was very impressed with Ron's knowledge and his laid back attitude. He is a really good guy it appears by any standards. His professionalism is outstanding in all ways. I am going to do more work with him very shortly. I am genuinely looking forward to it.

Her balloons were amazing, her painting was amazing and even the bubbles she brought were a huge hit! Then on top of that, she was an entertainer. She made the party!! I will be hiring her again for sure!!

Jay was hired for my son's graduate school graduation party & was fantastic! He provided graduation props in addition to other fun props. Being the graphics design artist that he is, Jsy designed a UNLV designed photo card to commemorate my Son's special day. In addition, the backdrops were amazing & personalized to my son & our graduation party. He even included some Vegas style backdrops our guests loved, especially the out of towners. He was deligent about getting the photos to turn out with the right amount of lighting and was there to assists our guests throughout the evening. Well worth every dollar spent! I would highly recommend Out of this World Photo Booth & hope to use them for future events!

Nancy was great! she took the party on, last minute, after our original face painter cancelled a couple of days before the party. We wanted Sugar Skulls, and although Nancy did not have a lot of experience painting those, she was willing to give it a shot! Her other work looked very good, and she came prepared with a couple of designs for us to choose from. After doing a couple, she was creating different designs and everyone was very happy with their Sugar Skull faces! We loved it, I recommend her to all. She was willing to work with us, jumped in last minute and it was a huge success!

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.

They came with their own props as well. The pictures are GREAT. I would 100% hire them again to do a party. Awesome people.

Michael was great! He showed up early, which I wasn't expecting, as past photo booth rentals I've had, have set up "during" my paid time of use. So, that was fantastic! He was polite and even had patience with our dog who kept escaping out and barking at him. Lol The party was for my 16 and 18 year old who had a bunch of teens over. And Michael still had a great time with all of their craziness. When the camera acted up and wasn't taking pictures, which believe me they ALL act up from past experience, he had it back up and running within a few minutes. Everyone had a great time, even though it was freezing outside, I think we all forgot about that. I highly recommend Concept Studios Photo Booth for any party. Michael was a lot more personable and laid back. Where as the other companies' attendants I've had just sat around playing on their phones and packed up and left at the exact dismissal time and left without even letting me know. Thanks again Concept Studios, we will definitely be using you again in the future.

We hired Patrick for a company holiday party and our employees had a great time watching his magic tricks. This was a great way to entertain people and get people talking and laughing. He did a great job of working the room so that everyone had a chance to see one of his tricks. We hired him for two hours for a party with 85 people that attended. He is very professional on the business side of things and the whole transaction went smoothly. I highly recommend his close-up magic for companies at their events.

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.
