We used Triumph for my daughter's sweet 16 party and Jason was great! It was a last minute hire but Jason was so accommodating and pushed everything through very quickly and did the artwork for my pictures exactly how I wanted them! On the night of the event, Logan was the actual attendant and he arrived way ahead of the scheduled setup time and didn't leave until every last kid had an opportunity to get their pictures taken, which was a big deal since we had over 115 kids there! I will definitely use them again! Attachments area

Creative faces exceeded our expectations. We had face painting and glitter tattoos for my son's 4th birthday party. Both artists were on time, friendly and the kids had a blast. I would highly recommend them.

Desert Rose Photography was a very easy to work with. They provided a photo booth from my daughter's Sweet 16 party. The price was a little higher than the other quote I received on thumbtack, but the company uses photographers that stay onsight. They were friendly. The props were fun and the photo paper was uniquely designed with our party colors and my daugher's name/party date. They also provided us with a thumb drive with all of the photos taken the night of the party.

Joel provided DJ karaoke service for our company Christmas party at the Yardhouse in Long Beach. He was professional, punctual and courteous. He had a cool vibe, great energy and a wide selection of music. He knows his craft well and that translated to us having a great time singing and dancing. He went straight to my contacts list for future parties. I would absolutely recommend him for any event.

I had a very positive experience with S&D Event Entertainment. Sonia was super energetic and she really made all of the party guests feel the energy and was instrumental in making sure our guests really enjoyed the photo booth experience. They had a good variety of props as well and the 4x6 prints were fantastic. They also set up a candy bar for us. It was a fabulous candy bar and matches our theme perfectly. Our guests really enjoyed the candy bar. One negative was that they were late in getting everything set up as they arrived later than we had agreed on. Nevertheless, it all worked out at the end as Sonia was so great at accommodating my requests and rolling with the punches as there were unforeseen wind issues. I would have given them 5 stars if it were not for their arriving late as I'm a stickler for vendors being on time so the set up is done before guest arrivals.

Their arrival and setup were prompt and efficient. The booth was awesome and produced great pictures! The guests had a blast with the props and as the evening progressed the poses became more hilarious and amazing. Teardown was quick and they were gone in a flash! Definitely a must have for any party! Our Gatsby Theme party was great and socialite captured the fun! Highly recommended!

Edgar was absolutely amazing and he was such a pleasure to work with. He was very understating of a last minute date change and was happy to accommodate the new date. Edgar arrived early to set up and had everything ready for when my guests arrived. He was there to assist my guests the entire time and always so friendly and polite. All of the pictures were such great quality! I will definitely be booking Tag Me Photobooth for next years’ party at DoubleTree Los Angeles Westside!

Natalie was THE BEST to work with from the very first discussion all the way to the end where we had beautiful photos from our one year old's birthday party. She was very quick to respond and work with our budget and schedule. She blended in very well at the party and got so many great natural shots as well as posed photos. I would not hesitate one second to hire her again and will definitely be recommending her to all our friends and family. Thank you again Natalie!

LadyMarry's presence with the DJ, coordinator, videographer and florist allowed our wedding to flow so smoothly. It was a fantastic party. Our dance party went longer than most, but we had no problem dancing the night away with DJ Garrett! Not only is he great at his work, but he's the kind of guy we'd invite to our wedding anyway :) We are really happy that we found the whole team. You will be too!

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.
