Alexandra from DC Face Painting was awesome! She was very punctual and quickly engaged the children when she arrived. We live in Fairfax county, VA and booked her for 2 hours. About 10 mothers came up to me during the party and asked me where I had found her because they were so impressed with her art work and how fast she worked. The children in our group ranged in ages from 1-6 years and we had LOTs of kids at the party (about 50 kids). She quickly worked on each child and the results were fantastic!! The photos on the website do not do justice to the art work when you see it in person....she did an amazing job and great designs on the children. She also made balloon animals, etc. and kept the childrent excited. Her prices are also extremely reasonable!! We will definitely book her again for our next party!! She deserves the 5 stars!!

We hired K to take pictures on our wedding just for one hour, because we only wanted to register the ceremony and a few pictures of our guests. It was a small wedding party. Before the wedding, K made very good suggestions on the photo selection, and provided us with several documents that guided the organization of our wedding photo gallery. K is very knowledgeable of his profession and provided us with good advice. Before the wedding, he was very responsive to our needs and very flexible in meeting our tight schedule. After the wedding he organized a viewing session in our home and suggested a set of pictures that were the most representative of that important day. The quality of his work is very good.

There has been nothing but rave reviews from the members in attendance about Jon James' performance during our New Year's Eve party. A number of members questioned the decision to bring in a DJ instead of a band prior to the event, but all were quickly won over by Jon's personality, understanding of the audience, and non-stop performance throughout the event. During our monthly meeting on Jan 12th, comments such as "Best New Year's Eve party we've ever had", "I hope that DJ is available next year" and "We sure got our moneys worth; the DJ was awesome!" Thanks, Jon, you sure made me look smart for choosing Double J Entertainment for our party. I hope that you will be available for other future events at American Legion Post 290!

We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

Two days before our daughter's 10th Carnival Birthday Party, I reached out to Thumbtack for a Magician to entertain our guests. Mr. Michael Chamberlin promptly responded to the request within a couple of hours. His bio, resume and prior performances and experiences were very impressive. We hired Michael to perform a Magic Show for her party held on 10/13/13. The party consisted of about 30 children and 25 Adults. Michael presented an excellent Magic Show engaging both the children and adults. The birthday girl really enjoyed it as well as everyone present. The children and adults were still talking about the show long after Michael had left. He was very professional, cordial, and entertaining. I am so glad that he responded to my Thumbtack Magician Request. Michael truly is a great Magician and an excellent entertainer who was capable of capturing, engaging and drawing in his entire audience from start to finish. His Magic Show was amazingly top notch. It was energizing from beginning to end. We laughed a lot and were amazed by his magical talents. We all loved his show. Thanks Again! R/Hope Fenstermacher

Sly the Magic Guy was nothing short of phenomenal at my retirement party. Our 100 guests were amazed and entertained - both young kids and adults loved the close up magic feats that he performed while wandering around wherever our guests were situated. They are still talking about it, trying to figure out "how did he do that?!" Everyone said he was fantastic! The consummate professional, he showed up right on time, went to work immediately and kept performing longer than required - and all at an affordable price.

We hired Xen Live for my mother in law's 80th birthday party. We had about 50 people and wanted to have live music to shake things up. Our DJ arrived on time (an hour before the party) to set up and do sound checks. We wanted oldies style of music given the audience and what he played was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend Xen Live for your special occasion.

Andrea came to my house to train my Dog, Loki. She was excellent! She observed his negative behaviors and gave me easy and EFFECTIVE ways to deflect his attention onto something more positive. We saw Andrea on Friday, 2/02/18 @ 9am and she was here for a hour. I've been using all of the techniques she taught me and although it's only been over 40 hours since she visited, Loki is already showing excellent improvement. She even called me back later Friday afternoon, to say she researched one of his more unusual behaviors and gave she gave me additional instructions for training Loki regarding this specific issue. I highly recommend Andrea from Belton Entertainment, she understands Dogs, what drives them and how to handle/control those behaviors. Good Luck!

We did not end up going with DG simply because they did not have Rocky from Paw Patrol available and my son MUST have him at his party. But Damien helped connect with me with several other potential vendors and one of the ended up working out. His prices are definitely better than others. He was incredibly responsive and professional. He truly went above and beyond!

DJ Repeatable DJed and MCed my wedding. I have worked with a few DJs before, but not one that was willing to work so close with my bride and myself to make sure that we got exactly the playlist we wanted. He made sure he knew our party's name pronunciations in advance, the schedule for the whole evening, and the music that we did not want to hear played. He was able to read our room well to get both the old folks and the younger crowd on the dance floor. DJ Repeatable was super professional, easy going, and new how to make our party a blast, from the ceremony through the reception. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was looking for something a little different for my daughter's 8th birthday. It was at my home and was Super Smash Bros themed. Travis created a personalized photo experience for the kids at the party which included characters to choose from and an optional "fireball". Travis was also very professional and great with the kids.

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.
