I highly recommend this photo booth! The attendant was very professional, punctual and really made the experience enjoyable for our wedding guests. I also do not know how this company was able to be so responsive! I always received emails and answers to my questions immediately, even in the middle of the night! My wedding guests were able to get as many copies as they wanted and there were no technical issues at all. Within 12 hours of the event I also had the complete album of photos. Really an amazing company and great value. They will always be my go to company for a memorable and amazing photo booth!

Heath provided a wonderful evening of entertainment for our wedding. He came to the venue a week early to make sure that he could set things up properly. He was on site early the day of the wedding and had everything ready to go. The music and his announcing were right on cue. He did exactly what we asked of him. He was fantastic.

DJ Repeatable DJed and MCed my wedding. I have worked with a few DJs before, but not one that was willing to work so close with my bride and myself to make sure that we got exactly the playlist we wanted. He made sure he knew our party's name pronunciations in advance, the schedule for the whole evening, and the music that we did not want to hear played. He was able to read our room well to get both the old folks and the younger crowd on the dance floor. DJ Repeatable was super professional, easy going, and new how to make our party a blast, from the ceremony through the reception. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Fairy Jennabelle was surrounded by children throughout our entire event and she was amazing at engaging and delighting them even as they waited in line. She is a very gifted artist and the kids were thrilled with their faces when she was done transforming them. Having Fairy Jennabelle at our event was much more special than just offering face painting as part of the afternoon's festivities. She was so entertaining that she quickly became the hit of the party!

I had the pleasure to work with Xen Live on May 14th, 2018 at Richland Golf Club, Middletown MD. He was very professional in every aspect: setting the speakers and the microphones ahead of time, providing a high quality equipment and being attentive to all the musicians including a singer, pianist, and violinist. The volume level was properly adjusted and the ceremony went as smoothly as possible despite the fact there was high wind at the site. I can't wait to work with Xen Live again, and highly recommend his business to everyone who is looking for a perfect wedding. Zhenya Zianouka, violinist pixieviolin.com

David and Jena did an absolutely incredible job at our wedding, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. From designing the film strip to selecting fun props to the actual wedding day, Mad Props was fun and easy to work with - simply perfect!! Our guests kept them busy all night and they kept all the guests laughing. They also made an unforgettable memory guestbook with copies of all the photos that is just an invaluable keepsake of all the fun we had. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!

Bugsy was excellent! He worked closely with us and our day of coordinator to be sure that we didn't have to stress on our big day. He sent us a very detailed form to fill out with our entrance songs, first dance song, other fun dances, and our must play/must not play requests. His selection of songs for during lunch (when no one was dancing) was perfectly matched to our vibe. I definitely recommend him to those planning a wedding or other event.

Jack Philipoom came to my attention at my nieces wedding reception in Williamsburg , Virginia where he was performing jazz guitar with an ensemble. It was there that I booked him for a garden party at my McLean , Virginia home. The flow and style of this extremely talented musician added an elegant ambiance to our evening. His personality is delightful, and our guests found him to be simply charming. I will definitely rehire him, and have highly recommended him to our friends.

Kurt Schneid from Spin City was the DJ for our wedding just a few weeks ago. He did an AMAZING job! He took real ownership of the flow and was a great MC for the entire reception. From the moment we reached out to him to inquire about our wedding, meeting with him to go over the event, and the actual day, he was fantastic and put us right at ease. We had just under 100 people at the wedding and every single one of them was up dancing the entire night. He kept the music flowing and played great tunes for all generations. We were so pleased with our decision to go with Spin City and couldn't have asked for a better DJ on our most special night. Thanks Kurt!!!

I posted my request on Thumbtack on Monday morning, and within 30 minutes I received a response from Captain Allstar. He called me, and I selected him to perform for my son's Birthday Party (the next day). We had to adjust the timeframe, and he was more than accommodating. He was punctual and professional throughout the entire event. The performance was five stars because he was able to provide a great show entertaining 16 4-5 year-olds for over 45 minutes. Captain Allstar had all the kids smiling, laughing, and dancing. He was so impressive that he paused the show while the birthday boy took a potty break and still kept the audience's attention.Captain Allstar made my son's birthday a hit! I recommend Captain Allstar to anyone who is looking for a top notch clumsy superhero magician! Many Thanks, The Wells Family Alexandria, VA

Glenn was great to work with. He had a very clear system of getting our input on the songs well before the event. Additionally, he made sure we were on the phone the week leading up to the wedding to clarify details. During the wedding, Glenn was very flexible and helped us work around some space constraints and last minute changes we had to make. We are extremely happy with the work Glenn did at our wedding, and I'd recommend him to any of my friends or family.

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.
