Nathan played the piano at our wedding ceremony. He was very professional and responsive to my messages. He even learned a specific arrangement of Canon in D that I requested. Due to scheduling conflicts, we were not able to meet in person prior to the wedding. Nathan was gracious enough to send me several videos of himself playing songs that he thought would work well for our ceremony. Compared to other pianists, Nathan was very affordable and overall a great value! I highly recommend him!

The Top Tier Band provided a wonderful variety of music for the Bride and Groom and all our guests! The first dance was amazing along with the daddy/daughter dance. Top Tier was amazing when I requested a special song in rememberance of my sister. They didn't hesitate to fulfil my wish. I was touched by their kindness. My only wish was for the night to last longer so I could "sit" and enjoy the voices of the talented singers and band members! Instead they had me on my feet dancing and singing along. Performing at the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga, TN was a first for the Top Tier Band. I hope they enjoyed the atmosphere and lovely touch of "snow and hail" that blessed Melissa & Santosh along with our guests for their wedding celebration. With sincere appreciation, Lisa & George Brown

Shawna performed the ceremony music at our wedding and it was truly magical. She has one of the purest, most soulful voices I've ever heard and I was thrilled she was able to perform for us! To top it off, she's one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a vocalist!

John and Julie were amazing! Great musicians all around, and Julie has the voice of an angel. We hired them on short notice to play at our wedding, so I was a bit nervous. I shouldn’t have been! They did everything they could to make sure we had the perfect ambiance. To top it all off, I felt like they were family from the first time I met them. So easy to work with and such nice professional people. I highly recommend them!

My daughter requested a magician for her birthday party and I found Magic Wayne easily through your website. He was the first to contact me and also had the best price so I booked him for my daughter's seventh birthday. Wayne was prompt, professional, and easy to deal with. As for the show itself, it was so much more fun than I imagined. The kids had a blast and laughed all the way through, and it wasn't just the younger kids! My older kids ended up staying through the whole show (11,14,15) which really surprised me. It's also very entertaining for the parents. One mother emailed me to say her child said it was the best party he'd ever been to. Every child also got to take home a balloon animal and I was really impressed with the creative options Wayne offered, these were not just your average run of the mill balloons! If you ever have the opportunity to see or book Magic Wayne don't hesitate, it's a truly memorable experience guaranteed to have everyone smiling and laughing.

We hired Rebecca to sing at our wedding in June of 2017. We were so pleased we did! She helped us pick out a song that was absolutely perfect for our ceremony. The actual performance was beautiful and our guests all commented on what a great moment that was at our wedding. Rebecca was easy to work with - professional, responsive, proactive. I highly recommend her!

Victor and his team were absolutely amazing. He was easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Very polite and genuine, he was honest and sincere from our very first messages. He made a package that fit our needs perfectly, which was fantastic on such a short notice (approx. 2 months). On the day of our wedding he arrived early and put me at ease. He was having a great time, which was contagious and put the entire wedding party in a better mood. He went out of his way to accommodate any shot requests I had. The pictures we have received so far have been absolutely stunning, and choosing to go with Victor was one of the best choices we could have made.

Eric was the DJ for my wedding reception in Chattanooga this past June and I was more than impressed with his services! Eric is based out of another city so I was skeptical of whether the job would be too much with traveling and providing a service, but he handled the job perfectly! He was early to the event and did a great job choosing music that reflected my husband and mines music taste. He also did a great job capturing the attention of our guests. Eric worked well with my wedding planner and kept contact with us both months before the wedding date. My wedding planner was so impressed with his services that she has started to recommend him to her other brides. I would definitely use his services again!

My wedding was last year and I wanted classical music while I walked down the aisle. I recommend the company because they were patient and listened to my vision. I’m grateful for hiring Alison for my wedding. She played violin with passion. If you need music for any event or function, hire the progressional group Cafe Con Leche Music and Entertainment.

Shauni and l needed a professional videographer for our youtube channel: Paranormal Southern Belles. Ted met with us the day after we contacted him, and he did HOURS worth of work for a super affordable rate. This project was time sensitive. We were wanting a quick turnaround; and that’s exactly what we got. He had our teaser video to us within 2 days; and the entire firat episode to us in less than a week. If you need a professional video for a project, wedding, business, etc... l definitely would recommend you guys go through Fleeting Fantasy Productions. :)

Cathy Wood is really nice! I met her at a Macy's Sip and Scan event and liked her services there because she was so personable. I went to another bridal show, where there were many other photo booth providers, but none of them were as personable or as fun as Phancy Photo Booth. We booked her and met to pay our deposit as we chatted more about the wedding and other things. A few days to a week before the wedding, she emailed me to see what background I wanted and she described each one to me. She also emailed me the next day with another option that she just obtained and wanted me to have an opportunity to use it if I wanted. A couple of days later, Ms. Wood sent me the link to pick a sample and design for the print-outs. She sent me the sample and it was exactly what I wanted. At the reception, the photo booth was always occupied by our guests. My husband and I went over to make sure we got a picture and they picked the perfect props for us. Right after the wedding reception, Ms. Wood gave us a book filled with all of our guests' pictures and their signed pages where they wrote messages to us. It was such a special memory book to keep that I was not expecting to be signed by our guests.

About

Aside from the obvious, that I'm a hard-working female DJ in a male-dominated industry, my strengths lie in my ability to read a crowd and set the vibe so everyone in the room - no matter where they come from - is comfortable, welcome and having a great time. I leave impressions and believe I am a trailblazer in that I also educate up-and-coming DJs to do the same.

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.
