Four hours of awesome music from my daughters' personally selected "play list" entertained the kids for our double celebration (sweet 16/confirmation)! Nick made sure the DJ and photographer/photo booth were on top of it all, which made the evening a total success. Photo booth shots drew long lines as everyone enjoyed being goofy and serious for their party memories. It was very special that the photographer left the photo booth at times to capture those special ceremonial moments, like dang with dad, the "puzzle piece" ceremony, my girls dancing with their friends, one of my daughter's singing, and of course, the CAKE! Nick's personal renditions of Frank Sinatra favorites were a hit. I even heard someone in the crowd say, "That can't be him; he must be lip-sinking! He sounds too good!" But it WAS Nick! Nick encouraged the kids to dance but was not "Over the top" as I have seen in other "motivators". He facilitated the special dances and ceremonies included in the party, making each memorable. What a kind and flexible man Nick has been to work with. When you need Party Entertainment, go with the Best of ALL worlds, Nick Michaels and "The Best of Both Worlds"!

This was my first time using Thumbtack to find a vendor so I was a little apprehensive about the turnout. Needless to say, it turned out to be a great experience. They were able to accommodate my special request to match the theme of my daughter's party. The entertainer arrived before the scheduled performance time to set up. I was a little nervous booking the bubble show as it has to be indoors and I didn't want a mess inside my home but I was assured everything would be covered properly and it was. The kids, ages 1-10 were all engaged and the parents even started to venture in to watch. I'm glad I took a chance and went with Magical Memories Entertainment. It was definitely magical and memorable.

Joe, Pam, Tito and Mary were an amazing and reliable team for our daughter's Sweet 16 party. Our guests were kept entertained throughout the entire party with both the photo booth - impressive! - and the music selection played throughout the event. Our daughter, family and friends had a wonderful time. I would recommend It's All About You Disc Jockey Services for anyone's future event. Give them a call - they walk you through everything step by step and are professional the entire time. Thank you, Pam, Joe and team for providing wonderful lasting memories of our daughter's Sweet 16!

Adam was awesome. This was the second time we hired him. He is very detail oriented, but fast. He was able to complete 43 ballooons "sculptures" in a time frame which we had allotted for 30-maybe 35. He's quick, talented, engaging, fun, professional; all the traits you want in a party entertainer. I highly recommend. Thanks Adam!

Painting faces by Alecia attended my daughters 3rd birthday party. We had about 10 children all under 9 years old. Alecia was amazing with the children, taking time to customize each child's face. She was patient with the littles and their wiggly tendencies. She made sure each child was 100% satisfied before moving on and made sure the birthday girl was happy before packing up her table. I highly recommend her to every parent!

David was a fantastic addition to my party of 25 adults and 5 teenagers! He performed entertaining tricks, seasoned with fun and clean, tasteful humor. The guests had a great time and all asked how I “conjured up” this magician :-) . He kept everyone interested with his positive energy, and he engaged all of my guests directly. For me as the host, this was really key, that everyone got to feel that they were involved. On top of it all, he has a really nice and friendly personality, and he was prepared and organized for the event. I would highly recommend him!

Chelsea is all around amazing! I've only had one session so far and I can't wait for my return. first off her energy was high you can tell she really has a love for music and anyone that feels the same. very warm and welcoming. I love that she isn't free styling anything. she takes the time to learn about her clients needs wants, as well as music background and gives an amazing introduction to how she'll be teaching you so that both parties are comfortable with each other and are a great match. she's honest about what she's capable of teaching and truly talented. I felt right at home : )

Zachary put on an amazing show that kept about 10 children (ages 1-4) completely enthralled and amazed... which, as all parents know, is no small feat. But don't worry, Gartrell the Great also had the entire adult audience smiling and laughing as well! I truly have nothing negative to say about his performance or the hiring process through this website. All in all, the party was a huge success and a major hit thanks to Gartrell the Great and his magical prowess. That being said, I highly recommend him to anyone that wants their event or party to put "traditional" parties to shame... Every parent who was present had nothing but positive things to say. My personal opinion of Gartrell the Great is that he is a flexible, highly professional, honest, driven, and punctual entertainer that will make your event or party memorable and exceedingly fun! The smiles on the faces of all the children (and adults!) at my son's 4 year old birthday party (and all the other reviews of his work) are all the evidence I need.

What an amazing time we had for my brothers surprise birthday party. The photo booth was the highlight of the night. Everyone enjoyed the great selection of props as well as the amazing backdrop. The service was excellent and the pics are clear, crisp, and bright. Of all the photo booth company's we came across Lew's photography fit well into our budget. That's why we're going to recommend them to our family and friends and will continue to hire them for our future events.

Jim Sisti performed his show at our daughter's college graduation party recently. He entertained a mixed group (ages) of people at the party and did an incredible job. He promised a show of at least 45 minutes, but he gave us a bit "extra" since the crowd was extremely impressed and engaged. We had so much fun being entertained by his comedy and his magic tricks!

I hired talking machine for my wife's birthday surprise 40 th. Leading up to the event they were in constant contact with me about song requests and genres of songs we might want to here. If it was a song not on there playlist which is extensive they had no problem learning it for us which was awesome . The day of the show was not one of the best days to be playing the gig outdoors due to rain but they handled like pros and provided a awesome set for us. I would definitely use them again as they were awsome to do business with. Thank you so much talking machine for providing awsome entertainment for my party.

I recently used VIP Events photo booth for a party and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! They were so friendly and easy to work with, professional, and went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great time, kids and adults. We were able to capture so many fun memories with their photo booth and fun props and it’s all anyone can talk about! I’ve been to other events with photo booths before but this was by far the best! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Kathie was very engaged from the moment she walked in the door. She made me feel that her participation was all about me and my party, and that she wanted to know everything possible about my guests and how best to interact with them. She was fantastic. She cares about every little detail, which makes for a complete entertainment package. I would recommend her for any type of occasion, whether it be a small venue, or a large arena. Having her at my occasion to entertain my guest was worth every cent.

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.
