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!

We booked a photo booth with Magical Memories Entertainment for our wedding this past weekend, and it was fantastic! The quality of the pictures was great, and the props were fun! Steven was great to work with and the attendant was friendly and accommodating. I would work with them in the future in a heartbeat. Thank you MME!

DjByrdProductions DJ'ed my wedding for 70 people (8/2014). From beginning to end Hamilton was wonderful to work with! He made a trip from NY to NJ to meet and visit the venue and helped me stay on track with my planning. Everything he promised was delivered! Hamilton was super reliable and every thing went without a hitch. His music and technical expertise helped make my event just the right mix of sophistication and FUN. I got many comments about what a great party it was and that the DJ was "the best I've ever heard". I consider myself a pretty picky person and I recommend DjByrdProductions without reservation. Thank you, Hamilton, for your help making my wedding such a memorable success.

This power couple knows how to keep the party going. They did our September 13 2014 wedding. Excellent communication skills! Both through e-mail and phone calls. You can make a list of songs you want and they will make it happen. Highly recommend .

If you have second thoughts about whether you need a photobooth at all or if you want to hire VIP Event Booths.... just go ahead and do both! I was very hands-on with the design of the wedding, including designing my own custom backdrop and the print layouts - and VIP Event Booths was super easy to work with. The backdrop I had to get printed myself, but they let us use their stand and the attendant set everything up. The print layout I emailed them as high-quality pdfs and jpgs, and they returned their own proofs each time before they finalized it. Good camera, quick to answer questions, friendly attendant, online gallery.... all great! The only hiccup was that it rained on our wedding day so we had to get married in the reception space. I had wanted the photobooth area already set up to happen half an hour earlier, but the attendant paused the setup while the ceremony was happening and it all worked out in the end. If I could do it all over again, I would've opted for their photostrip guestbook. I had thought it was unnecessary because I did a polaroid guest book.... but the booth was such a huge hit that a lot of people missed it.

I was having an elegant dinner party in celebration of my marriage. We had 35 adult guests as well as 10 guests under 14 years old. The adult guests were served at a formal dinner setting. David was very low key and elegant and fit right into the tone of the party. He's not the loud "look at me I need attention" performer. He was absolutely perfect. He kept the "kids" busy for an hour while we were being served our entrees. The kids were mesmerized! He was great with all ages! He amazed us ALL!!!! I can't wait to have another party and hire david again!!! Leslie Harris Steinman (upper east side NYC

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!

Wow! Eddie and his assistant are AWESOME! He was super responsive throughout the whole planning process. On the day of our wedding he was there super early to set up, played all my requests and chose great music to play after those were finished. A few weeks prior to our day, I asked Eddie if he would be able to bring a projector so I could play a video and I was thrilled that he could! It went so well!! Big shout out to his assistant who was a ray of sunshine at the photobooth the whole night. So happy we had the pleasure of working with Strategy Event Productions! Thank you!!!!

Absolutely Fabulous Photo Booth was a hit at our Wedding - Our guests truly had a blast! George's booth, props, and prints were of excellent quality. We will definitely book him for future events. Our only regret was that we, (Bride and Groom) didn't take a picture in the booth, and I wish we would have done so or that someone would have reminded us to do so.

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

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.

I looooove Soulful Sounds! They are my favorite band. They played at my wedding in August 2015. I'm so glad I gave them a chance. Besides picking my dress they were the best decision for my wedding. People still talk about how great the band was. My only regret was that I didn't have them play the whole night. The guys are so prefessional and they dress for the job. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. I can't wait for my next event to have Soulful Sounds play. Keep up the good work guys. I feel like they get better every time I hear them. Love Vicky

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.
