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 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.

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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

DJ G is amazing. He is a great guy who was responsive to my emails and questions. He is organized, professional, and fun! We had a night club atmosphere at our wedding on Saturday and got many compliments on the DJ. He had speakers and microphones for our ceremony and even more equipment and lights for the reception. Our officiant also commented on the high quality work of DJ G. He stuck to what we wanted throughout the night and also was able go with the flow when our first dance was dragging on :) thanks, DJ G! We would hire you again any time!

I had a house party for my friends 40th birthday and I was looking for a DJ. Joe was very professional. I really liked how he came to my house ahead of time to see where he would be setting up and what he would need to make the night perfect. He asked for songs we wanted to hear and the playlist was AWESOME! Everyone had a great time!! Thanks Joe! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ!

Pete was so great every step of the way! From the moment we booked to the last song, you can really tell he cares about what he does and about his clients. Everyone at my wedding had such a fun time and kept telling my husband and I what a fantastic job the DJ is doing. We gave him our music preferences and our must play songs and he delivered the perfect mix! Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for an awesome DJ and an awesome time!!

DJ Blak Ops I have to say is one of the most professional Dj's I ever worked with. He scheduled time for my consultation at the location of my event. This was see the best spot for his equipment and to discuss expectations from us both. Of course this included playlist and announcements during my party. I truly appreciate that. He arrived early to the venue to setup and was able to accommodate last minute changes. The music was none stop... my family and friends told me it was hard leaving the dance floor. All in all my party was a success. Very much worth the investment to guarantee a excellent experience. Thank you The King Family.

Joseph Flores did a great job being a DJ at our High School AFJROTC Military Ball. The sound and lights were great and the kids loved it; They were particulary impressed with the fact that Joseph played almost every song that was requested! We will definitely have him back!

DJ Jazzy J far exceeded my expectations for our party. The selection of music was fantastic, he showed up promptly & was very professional. The equipment he brought was top notch with can lighting & an unexpected TV screen that scrolled a personalized happy birthday message along with music videos. Top notch service at a very competitive price!!!!

By far, could not have had such a flawless wedding without Kenneth! He sent me updates on timelines, emailed me to just check in and see how I was. One of the nicest, most professional people I have ever worked with. His ‘day of’ execution of our time line was perfect. Nobody was bored. There was no dead space in the events. I know I couldn’t have hired a better DJ.
