Judy was fantastic! She was the hit of the party for the young kids and she was able to keep the lineup of kids moving. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a face painter for their party.

Jason was amazing at our event today which was a surprise party with over 30 people. He sounded amazing, he interacted with our guests & asked if they liked his song selections & if they had any requests. I love that he not only interacted with our guests, but he also remembered their names and addressed them by name at the end of the night. We didnt have a shaded area for him, but that was ok - he made sure he was covered. He played continuously, only to take short (emphasis on short) water breaks. I highly recommend his services & will recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks Jason!!

As a bride on budget wedding photography can be extremely overwhelming. We are a simple couple who was interested in natural light photography to capture our special day. Our theme was modern vintage with beachy vibes and Olga nailed it from the very beginning. from the first glance of her website we could tell that she was more than capable of shooting the natural romantic look we were looking for. She was willing to work within our budget and came very well prepared to our first (and only) meeting. Her package included a complimentary engagement shoot, which was wonderful because we didn't have a chance to get one done. We wanted to include our energetic pup in the photo shoot as well, since pets were not allowed oat our wedding venue. She was totally open to the idea and did an AMAZING job capturing our little love. She arrived on time and ready to rock! It was a sunset shoot so she was focused on getting us in position for the perfect angles and had no problem kindly asking folks to to step aside so we can have the proper backdrops. It took her little under an hour to get all the shots we requested and they turned out absolutely adorable. We felt so comfortable and in very good hands for the big day. On the day of, she arrived to our hotel early and had already begun taking pics. She worked seamlessly with our videographer and maneuvered through our busy bridal with ease to get all the necessary getting ready shots. The Groom's suite was downstairs from ours so it was a breeze for her to get his pre-ceremony shots as well. With such a large wedding party (23 in total!) Olga did a great job identifying and highlighting all the VIPs such as the MOH, BM, grandparents and parents, while documenting all the personality of our big bunch. She even kindly offered to escort me and a few of bridesmaids to the venue. Let's just say it was the most memorable ride of life! Olga is a true professional and will do anything in her power to make sure her clients are taken care of and this was no exception. The wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! My only wish there with two of her, to capture twice the memories. Oh, it was also extremely windy for a summer day. She did a fantastic job of using the elements to her advantage and creating some truly romantic shots. We did go an hour over schedule and Olga had no problem staying later to make sure she covered all the main events of the night. She even sent us a few pics to cherish while on our honeymoon. I can't thank her enough for working with us and recommend her 100%.

Great experience with Jodi. Very punctual was there on time.

Ramiro is the best! He was very helpful and patient with changes to my order and coming a day before the party to measure our yard for a canopy to be prepared for rain...they covered half the yard per our request and when it wouldn't stop raining he came all the way back from Chula Vista at the very last minute to cover the other half! They had the most reasonable prices and were on time dropping off and picking up! We will use them for all our events in the future

Darryn is awesome! I saw his work at a bridal bazaar and I immediately fell in love with his work. The quality of his pictures are great and just beautiful! My husband and I decided to hire him for our engagement photoshoot and wedding. He worked with us so well and he’s very easy to talk to and to get a hold of. He was very professional and punctual in every meeting and for the events. Whenever I had any questions I would either text him or email him and he would respond immediately. When the time of the engagement photoshoot came I asked If he knew of any good places to take pictures because I didn’t have any in mind and he immediately picked the perfect place! Everything went so smooth. Also, we used Darryn’s Photo booth for my bridal shower! It was a total hit at the party! Everyone loved it! He has bins full of props so you will never get bored of taking pictures! His booth is very well set up and it is very easy to manage! It was very convenient for us to get a photo booth with him. His prices are great. I am very satisfied with his work, professionalism, punctuality and responsiveness. I totally recommend him! Love, Crystal Humphrey

We loved Dave, our magician and M.C. for our 8 year old's birthday party. Both our boys (our oldest is 12) love magic and the event was fun and engaging for adults and kids alike. Highly recommend and also was able to accommodate us last minute because our bounce house company cancelled due to the rain! Thanks so much for a fun party!

Derek is AWESOME!! I've seen him at a couple of venues and even hired him to perform at a Halloween party a few years back. His personality and stage presence are great, and he is a lot of fun to be around. He is extremely personable and his natural delivery ranges from comedic to thoughtful. I've always been a fan of magic and illusionism, and Derek hits the mark. I highly suggest him!

    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.
