Liz gave both my daughter and I violin lessons for nearly a year. In that entire time, she was professional and patient. I can not say enough how wonderful of a teacher she is. She also played for a private party for us and wowed our guests. Once you meet her, you'll know what a gem of a musician she is.

I used to travel four hours each way to take lessons from Steve. He has a phenomenal breadth of experience with many types of guitar technique. His encyclopedic music theory knowledge is impressive, as is his ability to convey that to the student. Steve has an intuitive gift for determining the student's needs, and tailors his teaching to those needs. Whether you aspire to be a rock star or a classical player, or even that guy at the party who can strum a few chords, whether you're 8 or 80, Steve is the guy for you. He is truly a special instructor and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Debbie and a partner (hubby & wife team) came to my daughter's first birthday party for face painting and balloon twisting services. They were on time, courteous and very professional, yet personable and friendly! The guests and I enjoyed them very much and will definitely recommend them to everyone! PS, their rates were very fair, too! :-) Only a small deposit required to book - they do not ask for 50% to book like most other companies, which was a plus, especially when paying so much for other things leading to your event! They were awesome, we were very pleased, so pick them! :-)

AWSOME. He traveled quite a way to get to my party/venue. He kept in touch with me, answered all my questions, was pleasant, and polite to work with. Very knowledgeable about what I was trying to accomplish, and catered it to my needs, for a Sweet 16 birthday party for my daughter. He was great, and very helpful. All had a good time, from age 11, up to the grandparents at age 86. He was also interactive, and we really enjoyed!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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 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 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.

      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.
