Steve was fabulous! We had a office holiday party with over 150 employees and everyone absolutely enjoyed their experience with the photobooth, and Steve as our photographer! Best part, is Absolute Soundz prints are 4x6, instead of the tiny strip of three little photos, that other companies use with their photobooths! Excellent service, we are looking forward to next year and booking with Absolute Soundz again!

I hosted a party with more than ten 3 years old kids, so not easy to keep their attention, but he did a very good job! The show was nice and the kids had a lot of fun. He also did the balloons, so all the kids had a present. I recommend him!

Lar performed at our office holiday party for 55 people. His show was very well received and my co-workers were talking about it the next day. We all felt having his act elevated our party to another level. His demonstrations are legit, fascinating, thought provoking and certainly entertaining. He has a showmanship wit and includes many members of the audience in his show. His is not a typical magic show, but a very different mentalist show that will still leave you saying out loud, "Incredible!" Much fun.

I hired DFiesta Photo Booth for my daughter's Sweet Sixteen. David and his wife tended to the booth during the party. They are a family oriented couple, very nice, polite and helpful. We had the photo and video booth and the guests love it. The night of the party, after we returned home, my daughter kept watching the CD with the messages from the guests until early in the morning. It is a special memory of her party for years to come. I highly recommend DFiesta for the product they offer, the reliability, the courtesy and the price. I also recommend to get not only the Photo Booth, but to include also the video and the album. Thank you for your work and for making my daughters Sweet Sixteen a success.

We rented the photobooth, cornhole (bags) and giant connect four games, for my cousin's birthday party. Everyone had a great time! I would (and have) recommend to all my friends. Chubby's was excellent to work with. They were professional, organized, punctual and courteous. Would use again for future events.

Dan did caricatures at a surprise party I threw for my wife's 30th birthday. He worked relentlessly with the crowd of 40+ people and did an absolutely amazing job. We loved him so much that we contracted him to do caricatures of our kids as well. They are all hanging proudly in our house. Now we need to hire him again for our latest addition. Dan is absolutely amazing. Aside from his skill as an artist, he's also a very nice person and is easy to get along with.

The decor that this man does is simply breathtaking. He can do literally anything with balloons. My husband tried and tried to stump the poor balloon artist, but Awesome Austin can twist absolutely anything! He was clean, punctual, very personable and good with kids. I loved seeing his decor. He made very precise, clean, but still artsy looking arches. His sculptures were colorful and whimsical, and the kids just went crazy at the balloon drop! Awesome Austin made my son's birthday party into an incredible family memory. I would absolutely recommend him.

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.
