Nick and his team of professionals were out of this world amazing from start to finish on the day of our Wedding. They were there on time and Nick had made me feel at ease from the moment I met him through Thumbtack. He is an amazing DJ, Entertainer, Businessman and overall wonderful person to be around! Nick made me feel so comfortable from the time we started communicating through Thumbtack that once I connected with him my decision was made to go with him and his team of professionals for my Wedding day for DJ services, Photography and Videography. Look no further ladies and gentleman!!! If you want the experience of a lifetime with someone who is going to be attentive to your needs and make you feel like the King and Queen of your day than hire Nick!!! He is professional yet warm, talented and experienced in the realm of DJ services as well as entertainment. He sang Frank Sinatra at my wedding and he was a head turner… Don’t let the most amazing experience of a lifetime be taken care of by anyone else. I truly cannot say enough to express my pleasure and amazement with Nick and his team and how they made my dream wedding come to life. Thank you Nick! You’re the best!

Super Partyland provided photobooth services for our wedding. They were professional and easy to work with the entire way through. Everything was great: the enclosed booth, attendant, props, album, and a beautiful and classy custom photo strip template. On top of that, we easily saved at least $300 compared to similar offers. Our guests loved the photobooth and we would definitely recommend them for your wedding or event!

James was amazing! All our wedding guests commented on how polite and kind he was, and how great the photos are. He got all the shots we wanted and saw the little extras that made for great 'moment' and 'candid' pictures. He also provided help where he could above and beyond being a photographer and was always looking out for us and ensuring he was there for all the important moments - even though we ended up being out-of-sync to our original wedding plan. His photography is beautiful and he even included little printed extras for us and for our parents - so sweet! We also received all files at the end of the night on a USB so we could go through them the next day. He also included photobooth style photography which was so much fun!! I would highly recommend Neckbones Photography - thank you James for making this day even more special for us and for providing us with great photographic memories.

We were very lucky to have Julie working with the Bedlam Bunch children's entertainers here in London. Julie is a wonderful entertainer, enthralling kids of all ages with her amazing energy and expressivity; she has them in the palm of her hands! She adds a personal touch to all the characters she embodies and creates the perfect space for kids to have fun and use their imaginations. Highly recommended!

Out of the various quotes that I received from various photographers, I chose Danielle Richards to photograph my wedding because her photo gallery stood out. Danielle's photographs were natural, spontaneous, and had depth to them. Danielle and I spoke a couple of times on the phone prior to the wedding, and we discussed how I envisioned the day unfolding, as well as the flow for the day. The day of my wedding Danille arrived on time, and from the moment she arrived, she seamlessly captured my event. I am extremely satisfied with the photo gallery that she created for my wedding, and my guests share the same sentiment. I would highly recommend Danielle Richards as a quality photographer, and professional.

I couldn't believe how professional and nice the staff was. My entire family had a ball taking pictures and using the props. When my daughter is born and old enough she's going to see all the funny amazing pictures from that photo boo day.

We LOVED Spencer and Sequoias' performance! They were absolutely splendid, and were able to captivate every single one of our guests. Not only are they amazingly talented mucisians and artists, but they were fantastic to work with. We were able to work with them on the set list so we could have songs important to us, while still matching their style. (But who are we kidding, they'd knock anything and everything out of the park.) Every one of our guests came up during and after their performance and demanded to know who they were, how we got them, and how they could get them for themselves. Having them took our wedding up 10 extra levels! We love them dearly, and anyone who is fortunate enough to work with them should definitely appreciate and value the gems that they are!

I am writing to recommend Amazing Events as I have now used their services 4 times to enhance my parties. At each event décor and entertainment were provided to enrich our atmosphere and guest enjoyment. Marty is extremely professional and passionate about event planning and décor. His many years of experience and talent lead to help guide me to a stress free and beautiful event. Marty provided inviting balloon décor in ways of arches, centerpieces and Balloon dance floor enhancements. His decoration using Balloons were the perfect touches to the many Sweet 16’s hosted as well as for my wedding. The balloon features were interesting and all of my guests loved how different and fun as they transformed the spaces. On top of providing the décor for my events Marty went above and beyond to entertain our guests throughout the party. He is vibrant and enthusiastic about what he does and truly takes pride in his work. Marty entertained my family and friends performing magic at my events, where my guests of all ages were intrigued and amused at his act. His performances were the perfect touches to make my parties stand out and ensure everyone was having a great time. Having used Amazing Events for multiple parties I love to recommend their services to family and friends. Marty controlled all décor for my events and made me feel comfortable and confident knowing he was handling it all. I can imagine my parties without his magic acts and balloon décor, and I look forward to using Amazing Events in the future. If you are looking for a company that goes above and beyond in décor and entertainment, I highly recommend hiring Amazing Events for your next occasion.

Wanted to share a great experience I had with DL Photobooths. I hired them for my sisters wedding in may 2017 and dealt with the owner. From the initial consultation to the evening of the wedding, everything was promised and was delivered without a hitch. Our guests were so happy to take multiple photos in the booth with large array of props provided. Great quality of photos and happy to see my guests have so much fun. Great company to work with and look forward to using them again in the near 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.

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.
