We hired Bill Big Entertainment for a sweet 16 party. They played all the right music, took all requests, and the crowd was up dancing the entire night. I would definitely recommend Big Bill Entertainment.

I hired Ione for my grandson's First Communion party. She exceeded my expectations. There were about 35 kids and 60 adults. She played music for everyone. The kids had a blast, she did face painting, made balloon animals, had karaoke. The kids had so much fun that they didn't want to go home. Every adult in the room commented on what a wonderful party it was and how Ione made it so much fun. If you every have an opportunity to need a DJ check her out. I would hire her again without question and I would recommend her to anyone. GREAT JOB Ione!!!! Owen had a blast. Thank you for making his day so awesome... Maureen

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.

High praise for Otis Read. He is a talented musician, and shares his musical creativity and teaching skills with me every Friday morning. He has done so since September 2017. Otis is attentive, patient, congenial and enthusiastic. He has innovative answers for the numerous questions I have about chords, reading music, fingerpicking—anything that comes up during our lessons. He brings himself totally to these lessons, never preoccupied or rushing through them. I am always curious, and he takes the time to show me alternative keys for various songs, styles/methods of strumming/plucking as well as inventive “moves” on the guitar. I have learned so much in the nine months we’ve been working together. Otis is also honest, no false praise from him. He challenges me weekly, making me a better player. When I get discouraged about being unable to negotiate a complicated chord or frustrated with my lack of plucking agility, he’s always encouraging and supportive. One anecdote: Several of my musicians friends,—guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass —were playing at my house recently during a big party. They insisted I play with them—I was petrified, deer-in-the-headlights intimated. I got my guitar and sat in with this talented group, and while I’m not in their league at all, I was able to handle the material and sound good. The musicians complimented me and the rest of our friends applauded. Wow! Thank you, Otis!

Lisa provided balloon twisting and face painting for a three year olds birthday party in Clinton, MA. Lisa and her partner were amazing. She arrived early enough to set up and begin on time. The team was great with the children-appropriate dress, conversation, people skills. Lisa met the needs of the party. Other performers that were interviewed for the party were dictating what would happen. Lisa listened and incorporated her skills to meet the needs of our birthday boy. I highly recommend Lisa and Just Clowning Around for your event.

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!

5 Stars. I arranged for the mini photo booth station at the last minute. I was delighted that Fotoboyz could help me. We had a small venue with limited floor space and the mini booth was perfect for the available space. This was for a Sweet 16 party, so we didn’t want to spend a fortune. This was the perfect price point. Randy was so patient and fun and fit well in with the kids and adults, facilitating the fun. My other daughter turns 16 in 2 years and we definitely plan on using FotoBoyz again for that Sweet 16 party. So happy how it all turned out. I’m uploading a photo....

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.
