Big Lyle's Party & Event Photo Booth Services provided their services to the 2015 Michigan ADA Statewide Celebration. Lyle and his team arrived on time and provided great customer service to our 400+ attendees. The quality of the photos and the professionalism of his team truly added a unique element to our event. We are glad we decided to invest into Lyle and his green screen photo booth, worth every penny.

Marietta and Pete were amazing! They worked so well together. Marietta was on it with the props and Pete with the camera to capture the moments. Everything was so organized and professional. There was no need to stress or worry on the day of! Pete took care of everything. So happy we decided to do a photo-booth at our wedding. Our guest loved it and still rave about it till this day. I really enjoyed how it was an open backdrop and not a actual booth. We were able to do some actions shots where in the actual booth you're restricted and wouldn't be able to do. Pete provides plenty of prints and they are HILARIOUS to see afterwards. You two ROCK and are the best! Thank you again for helping us capture our party. Highly highly recommend Pete!

Malachi was responsible for being our DJ at our annua barn ministry Halloween party. He organized the music, dancing, and overall atmosphere of the night. He showed up an hour before needed to appropriately set up and test his equipment. During the event Malachi was engaged with our guests and steady under pressure. Afterwards he was able to close efficiently and independently. Overhill his performance, music selection, energy, and creativity went above and beyond my expectations. I️ highly recommend Malachi for any special occasion to DJ.

MagicBob & SuZie

MagicBob and SuZie are simply the best- they entertain, amaze, amuse- and then INSPIRE. I know of no other performance in the country that is perfect for all age groups, settings and genders- the magic is flawlessly performed, the escapes are incredible, and the huge chalk art pieces are beautifully created at breakneck speed to soaring music. But then in a wonderful humble way, and upon request, MagicBob and SuZie link these unique talents into a powerful and meaningful Gospel presentation by first "earning the right to be heard" and then sharing the Good News from their own personal experience. Important too is their interaction and emotionally including their audiences in all their presentations- everyone watching feels they are part of the experience- including right up to the end when the cell phone cameras in the audience are busy taking photos of SuZie's latest created art piece. This is an A++++ Five Star unique one of a kind program an audience will always remember and is perfect for churches, banquets, patriotic celebrations, holiday, fundraising and annual events of all sorts. I cannot rate MagicBob and SuZie highly enough.

I love the way Nic captured our day perfectly. He saw our vision we had for our big day and he made it come to life! I love the way Nic captured the small, intimate details of our day that I didn't even notice until I looked back through the photos. Nic was patient with our bridal party and gave me input on what types of photos I might want to have. I think this is what separates him from other photographers. As I look back on our wedding day, I can almost relive those moments because he caught all the shots at the perfect moment! I love him!

When contacted, Chuck was professional as well as provided an easy to understand line up of what entertainment and services he can provide. The photo booth was a smash and it was obvious he had quite a bit of experience. Actually arrived early. Look forward to some of the other services he provides for the next party.

    Weddings, company picnic, school parties, events, carnivals, churches, or corporate events! You name it we can do it! A Great Time!  As soon as your guests see the photo booth a line forms and the fun begins.  The laughter that takes place around the photo booth is contagious.  Guests let their guard down - even the stuffy ones. Not everyone will get out on the dance floor, but pretty much everyone will take a session inside our photo booth.  Our photo booth has been the best part of every party we've been to, everyone has fun.

    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.
