RAK Photobooths did an amazing job! Such great value and service. I loved the message blurb signs for the guests to hold in the Photobooth. We threw together a masquerade ball for a Sweet 16 party and having the Photobooth provided that extra touch to have our picture taken with our masks!

He did a great job. Extremely patient and a thorough professional. Kids just loved his magic. Not only kids even the elders enjoyed his show. The guests were late to the party but he patiently waited for them to come and he spent extra time in the ballon twisting to make kids happy. I would hire him again for my twins birthday or for any get together. Most of the kids who came to our party want Mr. Jim for their birthdays to perform :) The Magical Mr.J is the Best!! You Rock the show!!!

MagicMike did a great job! He was wonderful with the kids, and the kids were amazed by his magic. Even the parents enjoyed the show! MagicMike made incredible balloon animals for every kid after his show, and they loved them! The kids were mostly around 8 and 9yrs old with a few smaller children. I was a little nervous about having a magic show at my sons birthday party because the magician will either make or break the party, and MagicMike definitely made the show! The kids are still talking about it! I highly recommend him!

The Salem Team had a client appreciation event that Cle Photobooth set up at. They were a perfect addition to our event, all of the adults and children loved the Photobooth and the props! Brian was extremely attentive and helpful with the planning and the day of the event. I recommend Cle Photobooth to anyone that is looking for a fun Photobooth experience (and also a marketing tool) at any event or party! Thanks so much Cle Photobooth, I appreciate your services! I had a blast!

My husband and I were looking to have a photo booth at our wedding this past October. I went to a number of bridal shows, gathered lots of information, researched & looked at a number of them, but nothing really popped out at us. I mentioned to a friend that we were looking and she said she had the perfect company. She explained that they can do anything & everything needed for a great party (photobooth, lighting, DJ, etc). Well we met with Tom & liked what we saw, but only needed his photobooth services. He was very accommodating, gathered lots of information about our special day, lisened to our ideas and had some of his own. Tom was great with staying in touch with us. On our wedding day he showed up prompt, with more props then I have ever seen at an event. The props were great quality and in abundance. There is absolutely NO REASON, you couldn't pick out some great things to wear. He has a couple different booths to choose from. We went with the larger one for our guests and it was perfect. Our guests, family & friends, were crazy about everything Tom had. He was busy all night keeping things going and fitting right into our evening. Tom went over & above to make our day the best ever. At the end of the night he presented us with an amazing photo book & video full of wonderful memories that we will cherish for many years to come. We still have people talking about how much fun (special) the wedding, reception was and how much they loved the photobooth. We couldn't have chosen a better person. Not only was Tom very professional he was very personable. We are so glad that we met him, because we consider him a dear friend. My husband & I would highly recommend Tom & Night Rhythm Entertainment!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly was amazing! I had a sweet 16 party for my daughter and a lot of her younger cousins and siblings were there. Kelly was wonderful and patient with all of the little ones. The price was very affordable but definitely wasn't lacking quality! Thank you Kelly for such an amazing job on my daughter's event!

Katie was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She was so great with the kids, so kind and caring. So patient with all of the wild ones running around and screaming, she was calm and cool, keeping them all entertained. Her artwork is beautiful, her balloon animals are amazing, and she was just all around great. We had kids of all ages, and they all had such a blast. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS PARTY A SUCCESS!!!

1st birthday party - This was the PERFECT addition! The giant iPhone like camera was a hit with the kids but also the adults loved it- and even better was the fact that our guest were able to have these pictures and amazing memories sent directly to them with a simple text. It was interactive and unique- a nice change from the traditional photo booths. A must get for your next party! And the people running this are AMAZING! They not only get you completely set up but they have fun props and take over helping the guest so you can truly enjoy the experience and party as well- one thing less to juggle or get someone to watch when you're trying to visit with everyone...and chase after your one year old :) To sum this up - FANTASTIC!

Everything was absolutely fantastic! I got so many compliments from people all night long about how great he was doing. He kept the dance music to what my husband and I requested before hand but he also took requests from everyone else throughout the night. The lighting he had set up was wonderful. Overall, he was excellent!

    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.
