David did a great job at our sweet 16 party. We were able to meet way in advance to review samples. He and his crew were prompt, provided many props. The pics were clear and all our guests were happy. Will recommend.

James did a wonderful job DJing and MCing our wedding. He was timely, polite, professional, and very thorough. We first met James at the venue a few months before the big day. During that time we walked through the schedule for the day. James had many thoughtful questions about his setup and even some questions that we hadn't even considered. The week before the wedding. James and I met to go over the day of schedule and to review our music choices. Despite our song choices being very complicated, James was able to keep everything organized. I had the piece of mind knowing that the music was all taken care of. The day of the wedding, James arrived right when he said he would and had everything set up before the ceremony. His wife was there to help him throughout the day and she was also very polite. He played all of the songs we requested and avoided all of the songs we didn't want played. He got all of our wedding party names correct during the big entrance. There was one mix up in that he did not have the mother son song we had requested, but was able to alert me in time to change it to something else I knew my mom and I would like. Overall I would recommend James to any couple getting hitched in need of a DJ!

Susan was great and I would recommend her for your party entertainment. Skeptical at first, I sat down with her with an open mind and my reading was spot on. She was flexible with the environment and handled the noise /chaos with grace and focus. I would hire her again.

Met the husband and wife at the christmas expo. Walked us through all the options we could do with their photo machine. Booked an event for daughters birthday January 2017 where they will provide their photo booth services. First impressions are everything and I feel confident they will make our event one to remember. Im really excited about having them at our party.

Jared was great! We had a birthday party with 20 thirteen year old girls, he played all the music they loved as well as a few games! I just don't know how he got all those girls organized and playing games! He was great fun! Well worth his cost.

Anthony was great! I will absolutely be using frozen moments for every party. His booth supported our party of 50-60 guests. Quality prints were available instantly and the green screen backgrounds were a great hit at the party! Highlight of the party!

Professional, poised, and an incredible showman! He made my daughter's bday party so incredibly special. His show is refreshing and unique. The workshop was a must. So much fun! I would recommend John with 5 gigantic stars and so would every single one of our party guests! John is not only an amazing magician, he is a kind and professional gentleman. Can't thank him enough!

I was a student at the PianoForte Music Studio starting from age 6 until I graduated from high school and I had a great experience! I was kept interested inspired even when things got busy with school and other activities and now I can work on and play almost any music I find! If I get the chance, I would love to return for more lessons in the future.

We booked Nichole to face paint at my daughters birthday party this past weekend. And may I must say her service was outstanding. The price is very reasonable and she got to paint all of the kids at the party.. She did an awesome job, even the older kids wanted their face painted.. The parents were very impressed they even asked for her info to book her for their kids parties. I highly recommend her for any occasion or event you may have.. We're definitely gonna book her again for my sons party and again for my daughters.

I've personally booked Carlos for several events at many venues and Carlos fits right in perfectly. From intimate cocktail parties to performing at the Arneson River Theater, he can do small (individual) or larger scale performances. He's always reasonably priced and fair. He's extremely talented, polite and professional.

What a FUN experience!! Our club holds social events almost every month, but we had never used a photo booth before. Recently, in conjunction with our "Margaritaville" theme party, Boothologie proved to be a big hit. Jim and Nans provided an appropriate island background and lots of props to add to the atmosphere. They produced quality photos with our event name, club logo and date in record time. Practically everyone participated and loved having a memento of the event. We plan to use them again. Highly recommended :)

We contacted Nic at the last minute (literally days before the wedding because of another Shady DJ we almost got stuck with) for his DJ Service and he was there for us! We truly were BLESSED for everything to have worked out the way it did so that we had Nic Dante to be such a huge part of the most special day in our life... our daughter's wedding! I tell everyone about our 1st conversation...NIC: "Do you have entrance or exit music when they get married?" "Do you have a timeline for cake cutting, the toast, bouquet & garter tossing & the send off?"... and MY answer to everything was "HUH?" I sincerely don't know what we would have done without Nic! Not only is he an Amazing DJ & Entertainer (and thank you for singing a few... So special) but he also felt like a wedding planner! I would highly recommend Nic Dante & his DJ/ENTERTAINER Services to every person I ever meet! And I truly hope we will have a reason to use you again... I'll even make up an event /party so we can! Thank you again Nic Dante! ❤️

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.
