Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

My original DJ canceled on me 1 month before my wedding, so I hired Jeff and he was incredible! I am so glad he was available on such short notice

DJ Quad is a nice guy. He provided the music for our 40th high school reunion. We would have liked more music from our era, but he played many of the requests we made and tried to accommodate us. Some of the music transitions were a bit awkward segueing from one song to the next. Also, his equipment would occasionally falter, but he was quick to address the problem. His price was very reasonable. Despite the issues mentioned above, we definitely got our money's worth.

We needed an affordable DJ for our non-profit organization's Christmas party, and Q Up the Mic with Karli was exactly what we were looking for - and more! She was so easy to work with, very professional, and had the best deal around! She provided all equipment including lights, sound, and even MC'd the whole event. We needed family friendly music for our event, and she was amazing at giving us just that! She was so great at engaging with our crowd and great at encouraging people to feel comfortable to dance all night long! We had such a great time with her and I would 10/10 recommend her for any event you may need. So friendly, responsive, punctual, and professional! Couldn't recommend her enough!
