Nick and his team of professionals were out of this world amazing from start to finish on the day of our Wedding. They were there on time and Nick had made me feel at ease from the moment I met him through Thumbtack. He is an amazing DJ, Entertainer, Businessman and overall wonderful person to be around! Nick made me feel so comfortable from the time we started communicating through Thumbtack that once I connected with him my decision was made to go with him and his team of professionals for my Wedding day for DJ services, Photography and Videography. Look no further ladies and gentleman!!! If you want the experience of a lifetime with someone who is going to be attentive to your needs and make you feel like the King and Queen of your day than hire Nick!!! He is professional yet warm, talented and experienced in the realm of DJ services as well as entertainment. He sang Frank Sinatra at my wedding and he was a head turner… Don’t let the most amazing experience of a lifetime be taken care of by anyone else. I truly cannot say enough to express my pleasure and amazement with Nick and his team and how they made my dream wedding come to life. Thank you Nick! You’re the best!

We used their service for our wedding. The photobooth attendants were wonderful! They were helpful, friendly, and even stayed after our contracted time in order to accommodate our guests. I was satisfied with the quality of the photos, as well as with the props provided. I enjoyed viewing all the photos later which are provided on a USB drive. No complaints here! I would definitely recommend this company. -Marlene wedding date 10/07/16

DJ Byrd djed my husband 50th birthday and our 10th wedding anniversary party. DJ Byrd keep the music pumping and my guest dancing all night long. He showed up well in advance of the party and was ready to go when my first guest arrived. He was very attentive to my music preferences and took requests. DJ Byrd even surprised us with a light show! I would absolutely recommend DJ Byrd and I look forward to using him again for my next event.

If you have second thoughts about whether you need a photobooth at all or if you want to hire VIP Event Booths.... just go ahead and do both! I was very hands-on with the design of the wedding, including designing my own custom backdrop and the print layouts - and VIP Event Booths was super easy to work with. The backdrop I had to get printed myself, but they let us use their stand and the attendant set everything up. The print layout I emailed them as high-quality pdfs and jpgs, and they returned their own proofs each time before they finalized it. Good camera, quick to answer questions, friendly attendant, online gallery.... all great! The only hiccup was that it rained on our wedding day so we had to get married in the reception space. I had wanted the photobooth area already set up to happen half an hour earlier, but the attendant paused the setup while the ceremony was happening and it all worked out in the end. If I could do it all over again, I would've opted for their photostrip guestbook. I had thought it was unnecessary because I did a polaroid guest book.... but the booth was such a huge hit that a lot of people missed it.

I was having an elegant dinner party in celebration of my marriage. We had 35 adult guests as well as 10 guests under 14 years old. The adult guests were served at a formal dinner setting. David was very low key and elegant and fit right into the tone of the party. He's not the loud "look at me I need attention" performer. He was absolutely perfect. He kept the "kids" busy for an hour while we were being served our entrees. The kids were mesmerized! He was great with all ages! He amazed us ALL!!!! I can't wait to have another party and hire david again!!! Leslie Harris Steinman (upper east side NYC

Out of the various quotes that I received from various photographers, I chose Danielle Richards to photograph my wedding because her photo gallery stood out. Danielle's photographs were natural, spontaneous, and had depth to them. Danielle and I spoke a couple of times on the phone prior to the wedding, and we discussed how I envisioned the day unfolding, as well as the flow for the day. The day of my wedding Danille arrived on time, and from the moment she arrived, she seamlessly captured my event. I am extremely satisfied with the photo gallery that she created for my wedding, and my guests share the same sentiment. I would highly recommend Danielle Richards as a quality photographer, and professional.

I hired Denny More for an Army send off party for my son. He performed a PERFECT show!!! He exceeded my expectations and then some. I cannot thank him enough!!! Everyone was walking up to me telling me how great he was!! Many guests came up to me telling me they wanted to hire him. The chief of the ambulance company wants to hire him for a fund raiser, my friend wants to hire him for her daughter's bridal shower, my cousin wants to hire him for his son's Bar-Mitzvah and the list goes on. We had an after party and the main topic was Deny More's show. The 2 young kids that were there could not stop talking about him, and trying to figure out how he did those tricks. I got calls from the adults thanking me for inviting them to a wonderful party. They were also baffled and amazed how he performed those tricks and how funny he was. I would recommend Denny More for any event as he does tailor it perfectly to what you need. I would hire him again in a heart beat! Denny More - Thank you so much!!!

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

I looooove Soulful Sounds! They are my favorite band. They played at my wedding in August 2015. I'm so glad I gave them a chance. Besides picking my dress they were the best decision for my wedding. People still talk about how great the band was. My only regret was that I didn't have them play the whole night. The guys are so prefessional and they dress for the job. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. I can't wait for my next event to have Soulful Sounds play. Keep up the good work guys. I feel like they get better every time I hear them. Love Vicky

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.
