Eliane was great to work with she was very excited to help my hubby and I create a great experience at our wedding reception for family and friends. Jason our attendant had great energy as he rallied everyone to participate. He explained how the process worked and even made some costume recommendations. We did not have an official photographer for our wedding reception so it was important for the booth to captured the playful, down-to-earth mood that we were looking for. Jason help this occur. Eliane and Jason thank for the passion that you have for the work that you do. It shows in your hard work and dedication. My mom wants to hire you for her joint 50th wedding anniversary and 70th birthday party in the spring! We want Jason! ;-)

Heather was fantastic! I highly recommend These Little Wonders. She made a custom background for the picture strips to match the theme of our party. She arrived early and set up before the guests arrived, and then cleaned up quickly and quietly towards the end of the party. I also recommend the memory book. Her props are excellent, the quality of the photos are great and Heather is wonderful. The photo booth was definitely the hit of the party. Thank you Heather!

Greg was an absolute pleasure to work with! Very professional and so much fun to have at our wedding! The photo strip pictures printed off right away for our guests and with great clarity. At the end of the night Greg copied all of the pictures onto a disc for us to keep. They also had great props to use and an awesome set up that worked perfectly with our wedding venue area. And to top it off they went above and beyond what we originally discussed about the time that the photo booth was running. I would highly recommend using KaiserClix for any wedding, party or event!! Thanks again Greg for everything! Amanda

I was in a wedding party that Aleah did the make-up for and I was amazed by her talent! She did a spectacular job and I received many complements on it, as did the bride and rest of the bridal party. Looking back at pictures we all looked flawless and beautiful all thanks for Aleah's amazing skills and expertise.

Adam and Maureen brought the booth to a party to provide fun and silly photo booth pictures for everyone who wanted to try it out. They did all the work: set up, take down, assisting with the pictures, and printing out the photos right away for the guests. They are a great team, helping throughout so that attendees can get the picture they want, including adding in fun props and choosing from TONS of backgrounds. I think that Maureen and Adam and the Zoom Foto Booth make a great addition to any party or event. :-)

Amanda was always prompt to reply to my pre-party inquires, confirmed her status on there day of the party, arrived on time, was very easy to get along with and had excellent interaction with the kids at the party. She even let them 'paint the painter' at the end, which was a big hit with the kids. Overall I am very pleased with the experience and would hire her again.

Madeleine was great to work with. We hired her to face paint at our kids' summer party. She was professional and friendly with the adults, and most importantly, she was really sweet to the kids and did a great job with the face painting. We will definitely be hiring her again and recommending her to friends and family!

I hired A Touch of Magic to do face painting at our Night to Unite block party. The artist did a fantastic job! She even got the 12 year old boys interested in getting their faces done. She was fast and incredibly fun for the kids. Beautiful work!

Hands down, DJ Mike is the best DJ around!! I met him at Paisley Park when Prince had him hosting a DJ dance party. Mike has the best taste in music and always knows the perfect songs to set the right mood for a special event. At Paisley Park, he played songs that got everyone up and dancing. I highly recommend him!!!

Tim was AMAZING! It was a professional reception (medical staff w/ spouse and legislators). All the guests enjoyed the music, many asking how we found him and how they could book him for a future event. I'd hire Tim again in a heartbeat!

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.
