There is not a single bad thing that can be said about these guys! They are truly the epitome of the fun people you want at your party. Everyone was so respectful and did their jobs with such passion and that's what I loved the most. Even though they were there to do a "job", it seemed more like they truly cared about me, like we had been friends for a long time, and that attitude alone made the party a blast! From the moment I walked into my grad party and saw the photo booth (it was a surprise thanks to mom and dad), I knew it was going to be a night to remember. Donna, who was working the booth came and introduced herself to me and congratulated me on my accomplishment. She told me all about this book of all the photo booth pictures I would get at the end of the party to keep as a memento. They also gave me a flashdrive with all the photos saved! How awesome is that?! (I even have a few photos hanging up on my desk at work!) When friends and family went to take silly pictures, they were greeted with excitement and that made all the difference. Even when there was a technical issue with the machine, they handled everything with grace. To be honest, I don't think anyone even noticed it was down. They had apologized and got it right back to working in no time! SUPER PROFESSIONAL! And if that wasn't enough...John the DJ was awesome too! He knew just what songs to play at what time to really get the crowd going. I really liked being able to give a list of songs I wanted played. He stuck to that and I think he even added great songs that went well with what I had already chosen. He also was so nice about accepting requests too! The gentleman getting everyone to dance really made the night fun. He was so energetic and so friendly! He played off of the atmosphere super well and even started some dance battles! (My cousin won't admit it, but this guy definitely beat him). It takes a lot to be so friendly and energetic around people you don't know, but this whole team did it flawlessly. I can't imagine having anyone else there. If you're looking for great party entertainment, these are your guys; don't go anywhere else! Thank you for making my graduation party so special!

Top notch in professionalism and courtesy! This quote came in considerably lower than the 3 others I received for my Husband's 50th party. When I denied the other quotes, they made negative statements to me such as "Things will be left out" or "They will be cutting corners". Boy am I glad that I didn't listen to them. Ella had the best assortment of photo props I've seen yet and Both Ella and the guy with her were very patient and kind. Everyone got a copy of their picture and I got to keep a flash drive of each picture that was taken that night. And on the bottom of each picture was a personalized thank you for attending note. Beautiful job, I can't thank you enough! Highly Recommend!

Mo and Daniella were perfect!!! They arrived early to set up, gave instructions to each participant but in a friendly engaging manner. I communicated with Mo, he was easy to talk to, and has excellent customer service skills. He listened to my questions and had answers promptly. He drafted the perfect theme for the 2x6 photo, & matched my daughter Sweet 16 party theme. Mo was patient with the children that would try and whisk away the props from the table. Always with a sunny disposition. A++ service, Mo and his team made my daughter’s Sweet 16 FUN!! The photo booth was a huge hit!! Thank you Mo/VIP Events!! ~Wendy

Pedro and Chris were great. Pedro was friendly and quick to respond. He even made some last minute changes while the event was going on. Chris, our technician, did great with the set up and management of the booth. The event was fantastic and everyone loved the photo booth! Would definitely recommend them for your next party, I know we will hire them again!

David was a fantastic addition to my party of 25 adults and 5 teenagers! He performed entertaining tricks, seasoned with fun and clean, tasteful humor. The guests had a great time and all asked how I “conjured up” this magician :-) . He kept everyone interested with his positive energy, and he engaged all of my guests directly. For me as the host, this was really key, that everyone got to feel that they were involved. On top of it all, he has a really nice and friendly personality, and he was prepared and organized for the event. I would highly recommend him!

We had Bill this past weekend for my daughter's 4th birthday party. We had 15 kids ranging from 2-8 so I was worried about how to entertain them for the entire time. Bill was there 30 minutes prior to start time to set up. Once the kids came inside, he had their attention the entire magic show and even the adults!! He was patient will all of the kids and actively involved many of them. He even offered to purchase a small toy to pull out of his hat for the birthday girl. He did 30 minutes of magic and 30 minutes of balloon making. The only thing I would change would have been to make the magic show longer only because they were all paying attention and loving it. Once balloons were being made it got a little crazy. Overall we were very pleased with his services and will definitely recommend him to anyone looking to hire a magician.

Jax has done face painting at a number of parties I have had for my daughters, and we have been extremely pleased with her work and her professionalism. Jax is very patient with kids, and extremely skilled at face painting. She is able to create many kinds of looks and styles. She also has a great work ethic. At the last party I hired her for, she made more than 30 balloon favors ahead of time, and stayed well past the time we had agreed on to make sure that every kid was able to get his or her face painted. She has a positive attitude and is always very flexible. I highly recommend her!

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 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.

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.
