My party guests' reactions to Marshall Magoon's Magic Show: "Wow!" "Amazing!" "Fun!" "Great Act!""Where did you find him? " ... My family hired Marshall for my daughter's 5th birthday celebration. Everyone from ages 1 to 50+ enjoyed his performance. Communicating with Marshall was a breeze and he was responsive. Marshall provided suggestions on what would work for the age group of the party attendees and his rates were reasonable. Marshall was also punctual and organized. He established a good rapport with the party goers and was able to manage a group of excited children ages 1-11. I would definitely recommend Marshall for events for children and adults. The older guests were also mesmerized and had some good laughs. You will not be disappointed in hiring the amazing Marshall Magoon as your magician! Thank you Marshall for a memorable birthday for my daughter!

This was a fantastic addition to our party. Guests could take pictures at their leisure, then the booth printed 2 copies. The owner of the booth was very easy to work with, and required no extra work to booked them. I would highly recommend doing a photo booth at your birthday too!

We hired her for a birthday party with 20 or so 4 year-olds. Every child who wanted a face paint got one and they were all happy with the result. She's professional, courteous, great with kids, and her work is very beautiful. I've met a few face painters and she is one of the best I've met. I would definitely hire her again!!

Amulya was amazing! I hired her for our corporate holiday party and she was a hit with the crowd. Her free style designs are amazing and got the crowd talking. She even was able to tattoo our company mascot on one of our employees. I would recommend Amulya for any party or wedding. These tattoos can bring your event up to the next level. Hire Amulya!

On August 23, 2014 we held my son's Royal 16 party. It was a realy big event for him and with everything that was involved Jayson worked with me and answered all my quetions thoroughly and in a timely matter no matter how many emails I sent. From the beginning Jayson responded quickly and gave a quote that was beyond reasonable. This was my first time having a photo booth at one of my parties so I had a lot of questions about procedure and pricing. Jayson called me and discussed the event with me. I liked the fact that he called as in today's world of E-mails and text messaging, speaking with a person is priceless. After booking, Jayson returned my emails timely no matter how small the question. The day of my event I was unable to meet Jayson but his co-worker was just as personable. The day was off to a rough start and I wasn't there when he arrived. However, I had already picked a place for him to set up and once the girls showed him he started. it was nice to see once I got there I didnt have to worry about that situation. We had got off to a late start but he flowed with us. He brought several props to match the theme and EVERYONE loved it. So much so there was a battle with the lights as so many kids wnted to remain inthe photo booth while others wanted to dance. He understood and worked with us on a solution here everyone could be happy. I will definitely hire them again and several parents inquired also because they noticed how much of a success the booth was. Excellent Service from start to finish!

My experience working with Mr. Cotaco was absolutely perfect!! He was punctual, very friendly, and made everyone at the party feel special while taking their photos! The props and photo booth were professional yet fun looking and taking pictures was so simple, my little nephews and neices were able to take as many photos as they pleased on their own and if they needed help, Paul was there to assist them! I also enjoyed the whole ambiance of the photo booth. The music in the background just made it a party all by itself, I could tell that many of our guests spent a good amount of time at the photo booth! The pics came out fast and very nice! I would definitely hire them for my future events and highly reccomend them to all my family and friends!! To top it all off, he provides a portable memory card that has all the photos taken at the party for the celebrants memorable keepsake!! I would rate pixcbooth at 11 out of 10!!

I see DNE spin at the Social Study in SF pretty regularly and he's done the photobooth at several events for my work. The photobooth is excellent and really gets everyone in a festive mood. People at the party are super psyched to get a photo as a souvenir and everyone wants to get a photo with their group of friends at some point. The music always provides a great mood for the night and Evan has a great feel for the crowd, knowing when to keep it mellow or when people want to get moving. My buddy had DNE play at his Halloween party last year and they kept the dance floor packed till late night! From old-school hip hop to whatever the kids are listening to these days. Good times when DNE is in charge. Highly recommended.

I had a Marvel Black Panther theme birthday party and what she had never done that facial design before. However a couple days before the event she had found a design showed it to me and on the day of the party the kids loved it. I loved it the parents loved it she did an awesome job. She was a very nice always smiling very professional I'm extremely happy that I hired her for my son's 5th birthday party. Though all of the children decided to get black panther she did do a couple other the designs that came out wonderfully as well. Her prices are also super reasonable. If you need a face painter that does arm designs and glitter tattoos and all that fun stuff I would definitely recommend her. I'm sure she'll probably beat this design so I just want to say thank you again so very much. Signed very happy mom.

We hired Natasia for face painting this last weekend and she was a hit! The girls loved her designs and she even had matching stick on gems! She was able to move quickly through the line of girls and finished about 25+ in 2 hours. I am very happy with the Party Artists and would book them again!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED We used Box of Giggles for our daughter's first birthday party a couple weeks ago. Brian is amazing. He was totally patient, professional and easy to work with. I had so many questions regarding backgrounds, layouts, colors, designs, props, etc... and still he was able to work with our pink and gold theme without any problem. The number one thing I liked most about working with Brian was that he often gave awesome and very helpful suggestions but always let me have final say at the end of the day.. Making the customer happy is obviously their top priority! Everyone had so much fun using the photo booth. The kids loved it, but I'd have to say the adults had an even greater experience (and it was super easy too!).. Honestly, it was probably the most popular thing at our party, besides our little birthday celebrant of course :) Thanks Brian and Box of Giggles for doing our party!! You helped make it a memorable one not only for us, but for our guests who were able to take their pictures home and remember how much fun they had at our little girl's party! Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

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.
