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.

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?

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.

Our original DJ, Ryan was unable to make our wedding event at the last minute, but he had an excellent back-up DJ and Talullah was AMAZING! She had another DJ with her, and I'm sorry that I didn't catch his name(or may have forgotten it after meeting other vendors at the wedding) and they did an excellent job! The music, sound equipment, and lighting was perfect for our backyard wedding. Thank you Tallulah for keeping everything on track, helping us with microphones, and for being so friendly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone

Travis was the DJ at my wedding and he was awesome! He was so helpful with the planning and providing me with suggestions. I was a little lost on some things and he was able to give me a lot of great info. He was great the night of the event! We had a great time and he took care of everything he said he would. I would recommend him as DJ/MC to anyone. Thank you!

DJ BEAST was amazing! I just had a Rock Star party for my 7 year old and he made the party!! He showed up on time, I was able to work with him on some playlist ideas and everyone loved him! The parents couldn't stop asking me about him and my daughter said the kids couldn't stop talking about how EPIC her party was on Monday at school! Thank you DJ BEAST! I will for sure use him again:)

AZ Mix Masters was a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process! We met with Ume and Luis early on in our planning, and felt so good about choosing them for our DJ services. They are professional, warm, kind, genuine, and experts in their field. They are also very accommodating and have great add-on services like a Photo Booth! Ume was great to work with in strategizing where to place everything, as we had our wedding in my dad’s backyard during COVID. And Luis was a stellar DJ on our day of! He really kept the party going, hyped everyone up, and was a great MC. They were a great team to work with, very communicative and on top of everything. We felt at ease booking them, and would 10/10 recommend AZ Mix Masters for anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or event! Great pick!

DJ Smooth did a great job at our Wedding Reception! He was very responsive from the very beginning. It is also very cool that him and his wife work together with you to create a great experience. When it came to the planning, he was very thorough and helped us work through all the details that we didn't even think about. We also came to the realization that a good DJ is really important, because they keep the event on schedule and things rolling. He played all the music we requested, had a great moment for all of our speeches, and played a bunch of fun wedding games with us and our guests. It was a great reception and we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you again.

Gary did an awesome job. We had some pictures we wanted projected and he did an amazing job putting the slide show together. He made the ceremony beautiful and the reception up beat and fun. I definitely recommend him. If I need a DJ again, he will be the first one I call.

DJ TROY WAS AMAZING!! We hired Troy for our Halloween party 2015 and he did a fantastic job! Hi set up was phenomenal! DANCE LIGHTS, FOG, GREAT MIX OF MUSIC! All our friends and family danced and was able to request any song they wanted! We will definitely be hiring him for our 2016 party!

Arrived on time, had a very professional set-up, the projector screen added a nice touch to the music. In all my years of working as an Activities Assistant and dealing with different entertainers, I've never seen a DJ get out on the dance floor and interact with the audience the way he did. It was really great to see that. Our residents absolutely loved him and we're looking forward to having him again!

Anthony was a key part of our wedding, being big on music and with a smaller budget, finding Anthony was amazing, he answered every question we had, had no issues when it came to last minute changes the day of our wedding, and held himself in a very professional manner, he didn't stress us about how or when to pay him and made sure that my bride and I as well as all of our family and friends had a night to remember, if I were to do it all over, I would call DJ Anthony Spano every time

We had not one but two previous DJ's that we arranged to do the music at our wedding only to cancel on us at the last minute. Upon sending our request through thumbtack, George responded within minutes. After the initial conversation he provided such a reassuring feeling that our stress was alleviated immediately. Upon meeting George, we were more than pleased with his professionalism and his can do attitude. He arrived early and was prepared with the special requests we gave him. George was more than accommodating to all of our requests for special announcements and his mix of music kept everyone entertained for hours. We cant thank him enough!!!
