We haven't had our event yet as it is in March, but so far, I am so pleased! We are using Joe and Standing Ovations for a Karaoke party at my little boys residential facility for special needs. I can't wait! Joe has been so pleasant to work with and I can not wait for the event. I recommend this company for sure!

The Great Boodini was exactly what we wanted in party entertainment. He had a tough crowd with two Fire Departments in attendance, but his performance is world class. I would not hesitate hiring him again.

We had Emil for our wedding on February 20, 2015. He was right on time and started taking pictures right away. He was extremely awesome. He was showing me the pictures as he was taking them to show me what we needed to do to get the best pictures. We gave him so little to work with and he was extremely creative. We were missing people from the wedding party and instead of wasting time, he just started taking more pictures. we can't wait to share the pictures with our family and friends. My husband and I were trying to go low cost, and we got a bargain. Thank you Emil for helping make our special day so smooth and worry free. And for putting up with my insane bridal party and family!

XOXO Photobox is fabulous! They just came to my best friend's surprise 30th birthday and made the party 100x better! Maria was so responsive to my emails and easy to talk to. She made sure that every detail was exactly personalized the way I wanted it - the design on the photostrips, the color of the background, the props, etc. At the event, Maria showed up an hour early to set up. She was so professional and great. She answered all questions. She set up the booth in the perfect spot in the venue. Throughout the event, she was wonderful with all of the guests, always smiling and friendly. I am so happy that I used XOXO Photobooth and I would definitely recommend them!!!

I hired Mr Mccloud for my daughter's Bridal shower. He was very professional. He was early to set up and to be ready for my guest. Every one absolutely enjoyed his booth and props. It was the hit of the party. I would recommend him for anyone looking for this type of service. He was also much more reasonable than others who offered the same service.

Tim and Answer Back Entertainment made our party a huge success! The dance floor was rocking with guests of all ages. The photo booth was large enough for 4 and was complete with baskets and baskets of fun props! The sound and lighting was perfect for our venue, Tavern on the Green in Crete. Truly a party to remember! Thank you Tim!

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.
