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! ;-)

We hired These Little Wonders photo booth for our daughter and son-in-laws wedding in Eagan, MN. All of the guests had such a great time during the reception and kept going back for more pictures throughout the evening. What we really liked about the pictures is that there was one set for the guests and one for the Bride and Groom that they can carry with them forever to remember their special day. Heather was extremely professional during the entire process from contract signing to wedding night and worked with us as we decided on what type of background to use for the pictures. We really enjoyed the excitement, fun and memories that Heather and Jason brought to our families special day. These Little Wonders photo booth is a definite must have for weddings and special events to remember how goofy all your friends and family are. Thank you, Heather and Jason for such a wonderful experience with your photo booth. Dave and Helen

We hired Steve to perform a magic show birthday party for my son (age 6). The kids were very excited by the performance. It was not too short/not too long - just right to keep them engaged.

Adam and Maureen are so friendly and easy to work with! They are open to all sorts of ideas and Maureen is almost a miracle worker with the way she's able to pull off things that seem impossible! Photo booth pictures are pretty much the perfect take-away from an event like a wedding, and it would work for things like conferences, too. I really appreciate the level of professionalism plus the flexibility. If you have an idea, just ask - they can make your event one that everyone remembers as the best!

Kevin was fantastic. We had him perform for our son's 4th birthday party and he was a HUGE hit. His humor and tricks were right on point with the age group; even the adults enjoyed themselves. We heard from many of the guests afterward that their children had a blast...and now THEY want a magician too! Thanks so much, Kevin!

Chad is great to work with- good and clear communication, and very professional. He was excited to work with me as I wanted to supply some of my own props for our wedding as my husband is Peruvian and I wanted a bit of a twist to the props that were available. Would definitely recommend Chad to others!

Jason- I just wanted to take a minute again to thank you guys for the AMAZING entertainment at our wedding on Saturday. The band was by far the highlight of the night. We had so much fun dancing and we clearly observed our guests having just as much fun :) We truly had the perfect day! Below is a review for the band. Please let me know if I could ever be a reference for future groups considering hiring you guys! Mike and I may just have to find another reason to throw a big party to have you again!! We will plan on seeing you at the Kramer/jay wedding in January and can't wait to dance our butts off again!! Sincerely, Monica & Mike Review: The Dap Squad was the perfect entertainment for our wedding! The music was fun and energetic. The group did a great job reading the crowd and playing the songs to match our upbeat energy level. The dance floor was full almost the entire night. Chazz did an awesome job getting the crowd involved. Kiersty, Jason and Chazz were excellent singers! My husband and I had a blast being invited up on stage to dance and sing with the band! We had several people comment on the band after our wedding and talking about how much fun they had dancing the night away! We would strongly recommend the Dap Squad for anyone considering live Music for their event. Jason is super easy to work with and knows his stuff!!On a scale of 1-10... We give The Dap Squad a 20!!!

Abby and Adam are an amazing photography team with such a creative vision and passion for what they do. You can really tell that they care about making your photo session a memorable and fun experience. Abby was always on top of things through phone and email, and helped with scheduling, answering questions, and keeping us informed along the way. During our engagement session and wedding day, both Abby and Adam were very supportive and professional. They took the time to get to know our personalities and style, and then matched the photos to us. And in the end, their work speaks for itself. The photos were absolutely stunning! Abby and Adam do an amazing job of understanding natural lighting and they get so creative with it. Also, it was important for our wedding day that our photographers capture the candid moments of our guests, just enjoying the day as well. Abby and Adam did a wonderful job with this, capturing both the joyful and tranquil moments of our day. They really helped us appreciate the important moments of our wedding, and I can't recommend them enough!

David did his kids show for my daughters 6th birthday. We had at least 15 kids ages, four to ten (even a few younger, and he held their interest too). He was on time to the venue, and started the show at the time agreed upon. He immediately had the children quiet and focused on him, then he had them all laughing at his jokes. For the age group at the party he held their attention so good. No one grew bored, or antsy. He made the birthday girl feel extra special, while including everyone else too. Everyone including the adults were laughing and engaged. The magic show was the best part of the party, and the only time I could sit and breathe because all of the focus was one him. My daughters school and daycare friends talked about the show for days. David is a total professional and great at what he does. I would definitely book him again, and recommend him to anyone looking to entertain from kids to adults.

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.

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.

How much is it to rent a photo booth for a party?

Renting a party photo booth for your next event will get your guests engaged and provide a take-home favor for attendees. The cost to rent a party photo booth will vary depending on the type of booth, the day and time of year, the length of the rental, and any add-ons you select. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500. Here are some examples of average party photo booth rental costs:

  • Weekday packages: $300-$550, depending on features included and length of rental. A three-hour weekday package for $500 could include guest book, personalized photo strips and DVD of all the photos.
  • Weekend packages: $450-$700, depending on features included and length of rental.
  • Additional hours: $100-$150 per extra hour.
  • Add-on features:
    • Photo guest album services: $75.
    • Personalized photo strips: $30-$50.
    • Custom photo backdrops or vinyl skin branding of the booth: $150-$300.
    • Live social media connectivity (ability to share photos to social media accounts): $100-$250.
