Keith and team did SUCH an excellent job running the photo booth for our wedding. They had so many fun props and the photo booth looked very nice set up with a red style carpet and backdrop. The photo booth was such a hit and we had tons of guests lining up for second and third turns. In between visitors, Keith's team reorganized the props so that the prop table remained neat. They kept the line moving. I was most impressed by their professionalism and how the booth added such a fun, unique, yet sophisticated flare to our elegant wedding. Keith's team also worked with us before the wedding to select the template and font we wanted for the photos so they would reflect the style of our wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and I would recommend them to everyone!

Rev. Carl was FABULOUS! The wedding was a bit delayed due to "maid-of-honor forgetfulness" and the Reverend kept this bride occupied, calm and smiling through the whole wait. The service was exactly what I asked for short, sweet and yet still VERY personal. I would absolutely recommend Ocean State Event Services and Rev. Carl for your wedding!

Extreme Photo Booth was awesome when they came to our wedding. They were on time and had everything up and running in no time. Their booth touch screen and printed templates were customized just for us. Their props were great and they were very professional. Their attendant was great with helping our guests put together our keepsake scrapbook. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Extreme!

    Mr. Kaplan has been helpful and friendly--- works with you to coordinate specific selections on the the piano. We have passed along his name to others needing musical background entertainment. Guests who have attended some of our events enjoyed his sounds, especially on our rare 1800s Steinway Concerta D Grand Piano!

    Java Jive is the band you MUST hire for your wedding or other event. They are extremely professional and incredibly easy to deal with - available quickly and easily by phone and email. Don was a pleasure to work with, and his experience shows through his careful attention to detail in how you want your event to go. The band is AMAZING, and your guests will want to dance and do anything except sit down!! Their repertoire is impressively extensive, and they can learn anything. We absolutely loved them at our wedding, as did our guests, young and old. We had the pleasure of hearing them perform and two prior non-wedding events, and every time, guests have left saying, "wow that band was amazing!" You simply must hire them - they did a fantastic job!

      The Tom Brown 6 did a stellar job at our company's reception. Take it from a music school dropout who wishes he had stayed in: these guys are legit. Every member of the band is a virtuoso. This group has a great stage personality and they play like they share a single brain...to be honest I'm not really sure how they do it---it's on a whole different level. I'm in charge of music for my sister's wedding, and after talking to Tom about their rates I will definitely be giving him a call. You can't even find a good DJ for the rate he quoted....and a DJ can't touch live music, it's not even a question. Classy, different, high energy, amazing musicians---so happy to have found these guys. I will go out of my way to see them in any setting in the future.

      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 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.

      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.
