We used Red Photo Booths for my sister's 40th BDay Party (70s Disco Theme) - they were fantastic! AJ went out of his way to make sure the event was perfect and every guest had a fantastic time! I will definitely use him again and recommend him to everybody I know.

That artist, and I mean artist, showed up on time, was very friendly and professional. I'm sorry I forgot her name, but, she was outstanding!! My daughter approached her with a snapshot of a video with a very complex full face painting. She NAILED it!!!! All the kids and some adults had their faces and arms painted. My daughter was thrilled and it took me a little persuading to get her to wash it off that night. I will be using you guys again for the next company party or even my daughters birthday. Exceeded my expectations!!!! Thank you so much for helping make that day very special for my employees and their families.

This is going to be a long but I think it's important for to know if you understand the integrity of this company. First, I rented a five in one bounce house, cotton candy machine, nacho warmer and cheese warmer, and hot dog warmer for a carnival party that I was having for my 5 year old. I had great discussions with Dee who walked me through finding out the requirements from the city and going over the order. She put together a great package for me and was amazing. I was doing a party at a city gazebo in Frisco that had electricity and I also had a back up generator. I thought I was good. The night before the party, I received a call from George to check in. He said he noticed as he was loading the truck that I did not have a generator, but he went ahead and put one on the truck just in case. I was thankful for the consideration but I figured I had it covered. On the day of the party, the team delivered the equipment and was very professional and showed me how to use the equipment and discussed pickup. The power was working and I didn't need a generator. We were up and running - for about 2 hours and then I blew a fuse at the park and could not get the power back on. My husband ran to the house and got our generator - which was acting up and not powerful enough! So, I called the crew that dropped the bounce house up (approximately 3pm) and at 4pm we were back up and running! They drove from Lewisville to Frisco, got me set up and hung out for another 2 hours until the party was over! Unbelievable customer service! Now, about the bounce house. WOW! It was a party for 5 year olds but the older siblings had a ball as well. Once we got the cotton candy going, I had so much fun spinning candy for the kids (and adults). It was so much fun and despite my 2 hour hiccup without power, it all worked out. I highly recommend using this company!

We hired Ashik recently for my kids birthday party with 100+ guests. Ashik was very enthusiastic. He responded promptly to all my messages and interacted very down to earth. He arrived on time. Most importantly, kids enjoyed his show and parents echoed the sentiment, when asked about his performance. I would highly recommend him for any party.

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.
