Josh & Angela were absolutely wonderful to work with for our company party! They followed up quickly with our last minute request for a booth and were accommodating from beginning to end. We'll definitely use Moments to Memories again for our future corporate events!

Thomas was awesome! He helped us photograph a corporate event for us. He was super friendly, easy to work with, and affordable. He sent us the snaps really quickly as well. The pictures were excellent; they really captured how fun the event was and were all work-appropriate. I highly recommend him and would be happy to use him for future events.

Jen was easy to work with and was on time. All went well although this was a corporate event at a child Playspace and my boss said we could use her again as she was short and talk to the children very curtly.

I booked Dave for our high school dance two weeks ago, and he was amazing. All of my classmates loved him. Dave is really good at what he does and makes the process so easy and friendly. I am the class president at my school and we will continue to use Keep It Movin Entertainment for all our events moving foward. What a great all around experience and service!

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

The. Best. We hired Sharon for a corporate party with 300 people, and Sharon was the hit of the night. We had three (awesome) caricaturists and a ton of activities, and still guests would queue up in long lines to see Sharon and marvel at the accuracy of her caricatures! Sharon creates her caricaturists on a computer as you watch live, which results in an enticing spectacle and really beautiful sketches. Plus, they're all saved, which means you can access them later (and share them with your friends, and make them your profile photo, etc etc)! 10/10. I plan to hire her for every party from now on.

Hired the band for a corporate event. The party planner totally messed up the entire set-up but the band was more than gracious, suffering playing in the cold on grass when there were to be heaters and rugs.

I hired Kaella for my daughters 5 th birthday mermaid party. She came dressed as a beautiful blue mermaid and was so sweet and professional with everyone she encountered. I really appreciated that she utilized her time well and even blew bubbles and played games when there was time between face painting and balloon making. (Which are the only two things I was expecting/paying for) also she was VERY patient with the kids. There were several special needs children that needed extra attention and then of course the dozens of popped balloons by all the children, and still Kaella was sweet and accommodating. Even teaching the kids how to not pop the balloons by making up silly stories about cloud Ballon puppies. All the kids were happy and entertained. And for me I felt a lot of party entertainment needed relief. I was actually able to sit back and have some pizza and enjoy watching the happiness on my daughters face. Good job kaella. I would recommend for any kids party.

We hired this company for our corporate Christmas party and they were great. They had a wide array of new, high quality props and the photo equipment seemed top notch. It was a great way for the team to get silly and have some lasting memories. We now have a scrap book of the event in our corporate lounge area. I highly recommend this outfit.

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.

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.

How much is it to rent a photo booth for a party?

Renting a party photo booth for your next event will get your guests engaged and provide a take-home favor for attendees. The cost to rent a party photo booth will vary depending on the type of booth, the day and time of year, the length of the rental, and any add-ons you select. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500. Here are some examples of average party photo booth rental costs:

  • Weekday packages: $300-$550, depending on features included and length of rental. A three-hour weekday package for $500 could include guest book, personalized photo strips and DVD of all the photos.
  • Weekend packages: $450-$700, depending on features included and length of rental.
  • Additional hours: $100-$150 per extra hour.
  • Add-on features:
    • Photo guest album services: $75.
    • Personalized photo strips: $30-$50.
    • Custom photo backdrops or vinyl skin branding of the booth: $150-$300.
    • Live social media connectivity (ability to share photos to social media accounts): $100-$250.
