Boodini performed during the cocktail and dinner hour of our wedding celebration. The guests really enjoyed the up close magic and balloon work. When our agreed upon two hours was over I asked if he would be willing to stay another hour. He was available and agreed. Thanks Boodini for an awesome evening!!

Where can I start? I could not have asked for a better night. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's made our whole wedding a blast and a night to remember. Starting from the "hand holding" Rick did with the music for our wedding cerony and reception all the way down to the photo booth. His way to keep the dance floor entertained all night was great. He catered to all the guests Old to young and all in between. Also the booth was so nice. They had an attendant there to assist all the guests and he was so helpful especially with the little kids. The photo strips were very clear and very professional and the props were tons of fun. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's get an A+ in making our wedding surely a night to remember. Thank you again. Jackie

Emil is wonderful! We had a very simple and quickly put together wedding. Emil was super flexible, even changed our contract a few times for us (sorry, Emil!). He was professional and to the point. Our pictures are beautiful. It was very important to us that pictures between the wedding and reception did not take too long. All the pictures we wanted were taken and we were done in about a half hour and were able to enjoy the time at the reception. We met before the wedding to discuss what we wanted in our photos and what styles we liked. We wanted outside pictures with a natural backdrop. The day of the wedding was very snowy and cold and we had to drive a few blocks to a nearby park but we got our pictures! Through it all Emil was super easy to work with, professional, and uncomplaining of the cold. We really can’t say how thankful we were that we found him. He is a true artist. He knows what he is doing!

Long overdue review. Sorry Normajean !! I am the events coordinator for Downtown Portage Inc. We hired Normajean to help entertain guests for our Canal Days Festival. We experienced horrible weather which kept most people indoors. Normajean didn't let the it rain on our festival parade. She even went as far as standing in the rain and waiving in people to come in a participate under the big tent. I would highly recommend her for any event and look forward to working with her again in the future.

We were truly happy with the services that Keicy Photobooth Rental provided on our wedding day. We hired them for our wedding and all wedding guests could not stop raving about how great they were. They were so helpful and made our wedding memorable. They also included a photo album where our guests could leave us notes and a USB that had all the pictures from that night. We could not thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to photobooth services. We loved their custom design for our wedding also! They were both professional and affordable. Karen was always responsive when we messaged her with questions. We can't to hire you again for another event. Thank you so much!!!

We attended a wedding last summer (2013) and fell in love with Answer Back Entertainment's work. It was the most fun wedding we had ever been to. From then on, we knew we had to hire Answer Back for our own wedding. Tim did the absolute BEST job DJ-ing our wedding. Our entire dance floor was full the whole reception, and everyone had the greatest time. I have had several requests for his contact information from attendants of the wedding that are eager to hire Answer Back Entertainment for their wedding. I give Tim my highest recommendation!

Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!

DjEddyGee gave my now husband and I the reception of our dreams! We had a few delays in our evening plans, and DJEddy was extremely flexible in adjusting to those delays. He also got some people on the dance floor that I have never seen dance before! Music was perfect, the lights show was awesome, and we are extremely satisfied with how everything went. The prices are also very reasonable on any budget. We highly recommend DJEddyGee!

Ryan Gorey Media was perfect for my rehearsal dinner! He was there before me already setting up and was very professional. He played a great variety of songs as people were arriving and eating dinner and then switched to dance music after dinner, which was exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ and plan to work with him again in the future.

Imperial Photobooths did a photobooth at my wedding and I couldn't be happier with their service! Everything was perfect - from the customized backdrop with mine and my husbands name, to the photo strip designs. They were very punctual and when the event was done, they cleared up everything very fast. All my guests got to take a picture home due to the unlimited prints which is an incredible option. Wedding pictures are the best memories a bride & groom and her guests can have, so having a great experience with a photobooth company really means something. I highly recommend them for your next special occasion!

John was a pleasure to work with. He was hilarious and all of our guests adults and kids alike loved his performance. It was great seeing the kids involved in the magic show and actually enjoying his jokes. I received a lot of compliments for him and was asked how they could book him for their next party. He was on the higher price scale but was definitely worth the extra money. He brought his own props and as promised stayed until all the kids had their poodle balloons. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a funny, charming, punctual and enthusiastic performer. His magic show got an A+ from me and my guests.

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.
