I can not say enough great things about DJ Tabasko! He made my daughter's Sweet 16 party unforgettable and amazing. He had the kids dancing the entire time. They were still talking about it the next day. Not only was the music spot on but he kept the crowd engaged and energetic the entire time. To top it all off he was so friendly and polite. I will 100% be using his services for all future parties and I've already recommended him to several people. Thank you Heath for making my daughter's Sweet 16 amazing!

We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

We had Entertainment with Class DJ for our wedding in December. We only had the DJ, we did not have the photo booth. They were great, easy to work to with and really made our reception a night to remember! Their planning system leading up to the event is very easy to navigate and they are always a phone call or email away if you have any questions. They are very professional and were able to come all the way to PA for our reception! I highly recommend this company for any function whether it be a wedding or graduation party Entertainment with Class is the way to go!

I hired Jamie for a Bar Mitzvah party for 17 kids and 35 adults. Jamie provided helpful information before I chose her, and on date of event she showed up on time, introduced herself with a big smile and went straight to work. Jamie is very talented and did some fun designs the guests liked. She brought her own paints/brushes, which also helped with saving money. I highly recommend Jamie!

Brenda was absolutely awesome. We had a birthday party of about 40-50 with a dozen or so kids age 2-3. It was a short notice request and luckily Brenda was available for the hour we needed. Both parents and kids were amazed. Her artistry was incredible and we were completely blown away by her talent. I continue to receive so many comments and compliments on how fun are party was with Brenda there. I could not recommend her more. You will not be disappointed!

I was so impressed with Bon Bon the clown. She was very professional. This was my first time planning a work party event so I was a bit nervous about everything. She kept in constant contact with me prior to the event. The day of the event, Bon Bon the clown arrived early. I had a ton of children at the event and she was so patient and loving to every single child. Everyone loved her! I would defiantly hire her again!

Becky's Photo Booth was very popular at my daughters' graduation party. Becky showed up on time, the booth was just as pictured, she had lots of great props on a table and hat stand, the photos were unlimited (for a party of 50). Becky found the HS school logo and inserted my daughters name and class year. Everything was perfect at the lowest price for all that I wanted. Highly recommend.

I can't recommend Stevie highly enough. He played a big party we threw without about 200 guests, catered, with bartenders, etc and absolutely nailed it. The crowd was mid 30's through late 40's. He really nailed every genre he performed. His mastery of a spectrum of genres was perfect for the age range of our guests. We asked him to play some classic rock, a lot of 90's and to mix in some pop songs and party classics. He nailed all of them to the point where I have a list of party guests hitting me up for his contact info. One couple even said they want him to play their wedding.

Bugsy's Mobile Beats is outstanding. Prior to the event he asked me a few questions about the party theme and what I was trying to achieve by securing his services. He offered additional services (photo booth) that were an amazing success! The music included the full range (P!nk, David Bowie, Queen, Flo Rida, and dance hits from 70's, 80's, as well as Bollywood - I have a vast array of friends). From the pre-party party to the last song of the night, the sound was managed and the beats thumping. Bugsy's Mobile Beats sets the standard of entertainment and professionalism.

Candra is an amazing event planner! Very professional, organized, energetic and best of all passionate. She handles things in a timely fashion and events always go off with out a hitch. From food, decor, activities, and surprises...her events are always fantastic. I have been to several of her events...and each one fantastic! She stands out because she can plan & host a party. Which she does both remarkably well. She can vibe with any crowd from toddlers up to senior citizens. Her passion for the youth makes any child party/event amazing. I've seen her in action and kids just love her!

We had the opportunity to work with Keila for our community Easter egg hunt. Her talent, personality, patience, professionalism and work ethic was beyond outstanding and most enjoyable. She was timely, true to her word and even executed duties 100% according to what’s seen in her picture portfolio. What’s more is, I’ve received many compliments from neighbors about the quality of her work and that she didn’t just paint a cheek as many face painters would’ve, but instead she painted the kids entire face in many cases which was a joy to see as many kids acted out the character she painted/they chose. In addition to all of this, she very much affordable. She worked with our budget and made it happen. We, my community and I, are so impressed that we’ve already booked Keila a year in advance for the next Easter Egg Hunt. Booking Keila would be of most benefit and value for your party. I certainly can’t wait to work with her again.

I used Clearly The Best Photo Booth for my daughters Sweet 16 Party and it was a hit!! They provided unlimited strips and I received a copy of all the photos taken on a flash drive at the end of the night. I highly recommend them for any event you may have.

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.
