We had a birthday party for about 12 kids and we were looking to hire someone who would show them a fun time. Chris was prompt (early actually), courteous, and polite. He put on an excellent show and was great with the kids. The show was a good mix of magic and comedy and entertainment and was well suited for the age level. On top of that, he's just a decent, down to earth guy. Some may not care about that, but it's nice when you welcome someone into your home - for whatever reason - to feel comfortable with them. Chris was eager to help with any other party items that we needed. Overall, I would rate him highly and would use him again for another event. Thanks Chris!

I had a wonderful experience with Brian. I loved the photo strip proof he designed for my daughter' s sweet 16 party and appreciated that he purchased special sweet 16 props just for our event. We highly recommend Oh, Snap Photo booth for any event. The price was also very reasonable.

This was, without a doubt, the very best corporate photography experience I've ever had -- and I've been around. :) From the outset of my inquiry on Thumbtack, Dave kept in touch and communicated continuously. His estimate was exactly what I'd hoped. The experience: exceptional and outstanding. This assignment was challenging, having to do 213 professional headshots in 12 hours, as well as shoot candids at our 60th anniversary party. I didn't know how we would do it but David came up with the brilliant idea of having two photographers shooting simultaneously. Not only did it work, but he and his assistant were an utter joy to work with: outgoing, happy, professional, kept a perfect pace, and knew how to put a bunch of introverted engineers at ease. The outcome: beautiful headshots, and fantastic candids. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. Don't look at anyone else -- he's The Guy!

All About Fun Entertainment is fantastic. We have had them at several parties. Santa & an Elf came to a Christmas themed party and read The Night Before Christmas to the kids, Winnie the Pooh & Elmo have made appearances at birthday parties. The balloon animals and face painting is so much fun. Definitely a must for any child's party or business function.

Just book it! DJ Zo was amazing - kept the dance party at our block party going all night, and handled everything without any hiccups what-so-ever! We gave him some song suggestions and he played them all and really took the time to customize the night for our style and tastes. I would not hesitate to recommend him for your wedding or party!! Thanks again Good Times ENT you're the best!

We were extremely happy with all the effort Belton Entertainment put forth to help make our back to school night a great success. Our students and their families left with smiles and a wonderful overall shared experience learning about their school. The great balloons and painted faces were a big part of creating the fun and exciting atmosphere for the evening, so thanks again to Andrea and her team at Belton Entertainment.

This is the second year in a row we've hired Jenn to do balloon art for our son's birthday party. It was so neat to see kids remember her from last year and get so excited to see her again. Jenn is so talented at what she does and the kids, and adults too, are thrilled with what she creates. Our guests have raved about her both years and are so pleased with how wonderful she is with the children. We plan on hiring Jenn as long as our son has birthday parties! Cannot recommend her enough!

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 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:

    • 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.

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.
