I recently rented one of his booths for my little sisters graduation party and i would have to say, Everybody enjoyed the photo booth, from the elderly to the toddlers. Bruce was on time, fun, interactive, and helpful to thoes who had never used one before. Plenty of props and fun things to use. Just an over all great experience. As a first time renter i had no idea what to expect, it was hot and humid but it still went off without a hitch. Definitely recommend this for ANY type of party. Family reunions would even be a great idea. Highly HIGHLY satisfied.

I highly recommend Carol & Cub's Photo Hub to anyone who wants an awesome photo booth experience!!! Carol and Cub are two of the nicest people I have ever met and were excellent to work with! From the beginning of booking them to the very end of the party, they showed true professionalism. They showed up on time, had everything ready to go once my daughter's Sweet 16 party started and didn't blink an eye when I asked for another half hour. Carol knows that day was stressful for me and did everything in her power to ease my stress so I could truly enjoy the party. I will be booking them for future events.

We really enjoyed having Klinker the clown with us to celebrate my daughter's 8th birthday! Great job managing all of the many face painting requests and animal balloons for both the kids and adults--and making the birthday girl feel special! The party was kind of busy and hectic and Klinker was amazingly patient and flexible. Wonderful experience!

Gerald and his affiliated Motown band, KGB, played at a party at our home for my husbands 70th Birthday party. TGerald was incredibly professional helping me plan and communicate leading up to the event. He was friendly and flexible accommodating some minor changes during the planning process. Gerald, along with the KGB band, were all timely, friendly, and when they started playing the crowd went crazy!! Everybody danced and sang on our outdoor patio. The quality of their music and voices was amazing. You would think you're at a professional concert, complete with the coordinating outfits, stage presence, lighting and sound. We are going to plan events just to have them back. You will not be disappointed with Gerald on any level. On top of it all he is super polite and pleasant. Everything you need when stressing about an important event, Gerald takes the worry out of the music and entertainment.

I thought Mike did a great job at my parents' party for their 60th Anniversary and my dad's 80th Birthday. We had 1 year olds all the way to 90 year olds at the party and he did a great job to entertain all ages. I actually would recommend him to family and friends that are looking for entertainment at their parties. He is so accommodating and friendly. Everyone at the party loved it.

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!

    The Band was awesome they played at our daughter's Wedding Reception! They were the greatest band I have ever had play at my house. They were very professional and amazing! I would recommend El Kabong completely and would for sure call on them again! They played from 7:00pm until Midnight on our deck that is above the 6ft. fence, people driving by slowed down to look. They also had a DJ for in between sets and after he played well after 1:00am. Ron Muniz came over a few weeks early to see where they would be playing the day of the Reception they were a little early and there set up was awesome! We used to have annual parties this was the best we had neighbors,friends and family calling and saying how outstanding everything was and that they were a part of it! The Reception was July 5, 2014 a Holiday weekend and they made it the best ever! Love El Kabong!!!!!

      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.
