Stephanie Rydeski photographed my daughters Bat Mitzvah Party. She is a real professional. She met me at the venue ahead of time and talked to me about what I wanted to capture in photo's on our special occasion. The night of the party she and her husband worked as a team, they were there early and had everything set up exactly as we discussed. We had a photo 'area' with props and she also took many candids. They all turned out fabulous. She also did a terrific job getting the group picture that I wanted on the staircase (which was not easy with 50+ 13 year olds !). I highly recommend her and I will use her again.

John is just absolutely stellar. I can't think of enough nice things to say about him. He played recently in my home for a 60th birthday we threw for a friend. Everyone (and there were a number of finicky musicians present as guests) was just blown away by how talented he was, and I felt extremely lucky to have found him. He was very professional, gave a perfect performance, playing a lovely range of pieces from classical to pop from the era our birthday boy grew up in. It was a lovely party and a good measure of its success can be attributed to John and the atmosphere his playing created. Many of my guests departed at the end of the evening with plans to host a party just so they could hire John. I very highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed!

Amanda is an amazing artist and went above and beyond to ensure that my daughters first birthday was successful. I requested that she dress in a patriotic costume because the birthday party would be held on the Fourth of July. She came dressed as Betsy Ross and was very attentive to the needs of the party. Not only did she provide face painting to kids and adults, but she entertained all of the children. She is truly amazing and I can't wait to hire her again for my oldest daughters upcoming 11th birthday party!

We had such an incredible experience with Amazing Jumps. They arrived on time to set up my daughter's birthday party. The owner was quick to respond to any questions that I had. Jumpers are maintained to a high standard. I loved that they take time to set up each jumper to make sure all the children at my party are safe while in my care. I would highly recommend Amazing Jumps to anyone.

Chris was the guest magician at our annual banquet the Celebration of heroes. He was The Life of The Party and made our V.I.P reception a tremendous hit with our donors and special guests. His skills and winning personality were so valuable and we will have him back next year if he is available.

I hired Susi to come tell stories for my family members and friends as we celebrated El Dia de Los Muertos. The children thought she was great and didn't wiggle around too much because they were too involved with her stories. The adults at the party liked her so much, I landed up scheduling a Silk Stockings House Concert. We had a couple of latecomers which was distracting so next time I will have a cutoff time so that it won't happen again.

    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.
