Ione was amazing. I hired her for my Sons first birthday party. Her art work was incredible. I was blown away at the face paintings that the kids at my party were showing me. The kids had a great time. They loved the balloon animals/objects Ione made for them. I would recommend Ione to anyone and may use her again if I have another party. Ione was very nice and professional. She showed up with all of her own equipment, although I had designated a table for her she did not need to use it.

Bob was a terrific find for my 5 yr old's birthday party. All of the 30 plus children at the party were thoroughly engaged without the show. I would recommend Bob for any party. His wife made balloon animals for the kids after the show which was an added bonus. Thanks again Bob for everything.

Jeremiah and his assistant were a great addition to my daughter's sweet 16 party. They were caught in traffic (as were a few others), so they did not have the time they wanted to set up. The second they got their they worked very quickly to get things up and going. My daughter and her friends loved the open air booth, great for group photos. We chose the green screen which was amazing. Our theme was New York City. I purchased stock photos online of various city scenes. Her friends loved it! My daughter loved getting a copy of all the photo strips. I loved the cd of everything. The guys were great. It was worth every cent! Thanks for everything!

We hired Malik for our evening company party (45 guests). Malik arrived on time and entertained our (adult) guests for two hours. We set it up so that he would stroll amongst the guests/tables. He was very funny, energetic and his magic was GREAT! As the organizer of this event, I received very positive feedback from all guests. I would definitely recommend!

Regina did face painting at my daughter's birthday party in Holbrook this past weekend. She was very professional, she arrived 30 minutes early to set up and stay till every last kid got their face done. I mean fortunately for me I was her last one for the day because we has a lot of kids and every one was very satisfied with their art work. Overall she did an awesome job I would recommend her to anyone that needs her service you will not regret it.

Event has not yet occurred, but I am looking forward to a great experience. Mike is very professional on the phone, and has a great selection of extras to make the event extra fun. Mike's service offers online scheduling of events that can be revised at any time. He also has online music library to hand select the playlist. I love this feature.

I hired Justin for a party to celebrate my son's marriage. The party wasn't your typical reception as there was no introductions, 1st dance, toast, cutting of the cake, etc. I was impressed with Justin from the 1st contact I had with him through Thumbtack. He wanted a face-to-face meeting unlike some of the other DJ's I interviewed. During our meeting, I explained what I wanted, and he helped decide what was best for the party. He send me home with a questionnaire to be filled out. The night of the party, he arrived early along with his photo-booth(I highly recommend using his as he had an assistant stand there all night and help the guests). He set up quickly and was playing music softly in the background while guests were arriving. He made announcements when needed and coordinated the guests when the buffet was ready. While we were waiting for dessert, he started playing music to get people out on the dance floor. He played all different types of music to get the guests dancing. All in all, it was a great night and I will definitely hire Justin again to play at my parties.

I cannot give enough praise for Joseph from fame photo booth! My experience right from the initial email was brilliant. Joseph was quick to respond, was very informative about his product, was courteous and professional. Joseph did a party for me which included a combination of 8 year old kids and adults. He handled the expected "photobooth" dramas with professionalism and kindness. The kids all loved him! He stayed for the party so we were freed up and managed the process perfectly. I will definitely use frame photobooth again and will be recommending him to my friends!

We hired Sound Choice Events for our sister’s 30th birthday party and they were awesome! We used them for the music , photo booth and dance lighting and they gave us everything we needed to make the party a fun night! If you’re looking for professionals who offer fun, affordable entertainment and lots of services then I would definitely suggest hiring Sound Choice Events. They kept our dance floor full all night long and our guests loved the photo booth pictures with all the props. We'll definitely be hiring them for our next party!

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.
