Miss Annie was the BEST Fairy Godmother I could've asked for!!! She was prompt and kept to her schedule. Everything that was promised was delivered! She was our balloon artist, face painter and magician all-in-one. She was able to entertain a variety of ages from 2-10 yrs old. I knew she was good when parents wanted balloon hats, but I knew she was great when 2 yr olds could participate in a magic show. As parents left the party, they said their kids had so much fun and had never been to a party like this before and this is thanks to Miss Annie with Space City Clowns. I have already recommended her to other friends and I would love to work with her in the future.

I have worked with Dan Brinkman and Party Animals for 20 years and hope to work with the entire crew for another 20 years! I am a GM at a local mall and I cannot imagine hosting an event without Party Animals. From Breakfast with Santa, Kids’ Fair, Magical Night of Giving, Easter Bunny, to any event, Party Animals is the one to call. Dan Brinkman and his associates are not only true professionals, but it is obvious they enjoy what they do. Once they arrive on property, my staff is no longer needed; they take charge of all activities and keep everyone entertained from the first moment. I cannot say enough good things about this company. If you need entertainment for events, parties, etc., call Party Animals!

Sue was friendly from the beginning, came a little earlier than expected and didn't mind staying later to finish with the children in line for balloons. The kids loved her variety of balloons. Her magic show was mesmerizing! All the kids and even some of the adults were captivated by her tricks! Of all the possible entertainers I chose from, she was the least expensive but had the best reviews. Many of the parents were impressed with her and I would highly recommended her to anyone!

Jon photographed my sons party this past Sunday. Prior to the event he was very responsive and professional. He messaged me a few days before the event to make sure everything was going forward as planned. He showed up on time, was very pleasant to work with and turned around pictures to me in 3 days that were beautiful. Thank you for the wonderful memories that will stay with me forever!

I discovered Selfie Booth when I was planning my daughter’s surprise sweet sixteenth party. There were lots of different photo booth services in the area, but this one stood out from the rest. The booth itself looked really bright and modern. It looked just like a giant smartphone, so I thought it would really appeal to a group of teenagers that are always on their phones.

These guys were AWESOME! They played for my husbands 40th Birthday Party and were the hit of the party! They were fun and easy going and worked with us completely in terms of when and what music we wanted played. I would recommend them 10 times out of 10 and will definitely use them again if the need arises. LOS VERTIGOS IS A MUST HIRE!!

    Made my company party so easy! I was so thankful to find them as they accommodated me very last minute (the event was 3 days from the request date). Everyone had an absolute blast at our corporate event. The person setting up was dressed professionally and was super easy going. The photo strip is completely customize-able and they were able to accommodate the strip to my exact specification in 1 DAY. I was left super impressed. The booking process was easy and the service was super responsive. Excited to work with them again in the future! Big thanks to Aryn and the 'Lets Booth it Team'!

      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.
