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?

We hired DJ PC to DJ my daughter 16 birthday. He went over and beyond to make her party amazing!!! He was kind, professional and really knew how to get the party going. Without DJ PC our daughters party would of not been the same! We will most definitely be hiring him again for another event! Thank you DJ PC for the amazing evening 😊

DJ Joe was fantastic to work with. Excellent customer service. He played for my son's Super 16th Party, and he got all of those teens on the dance floor, having a great time. As the kids commented, the party was "lit" - which I give credit to the DJ for making the party such a blast. Thanks so much Joe for a memorable party for my son! Laura, Peoria, AZ

I hired JayPea to DJ a surprise birthday party for my husband. The party was a blast! I can't praise JayPea enough!! He was absolutely amazing and the party was that much more fun thanks to him. He played music that we had requested as well as some that I never would have even thought of! He is so good at what he does. DJ JayPea went above and beyond to make sure that we all had a great time! I will DEFINITELY be hiring DJ JayPea again in the very near future and I know some of my party guests will be hiring him too. You know he did a great job if party guests are asking him for his business card all night long ;-)

I contacted Joe to DJ a 70th Birthday Party for my Dad in a rented out venue. The guests were anywhere from 40 to 70 years old. Joe put together songs from the 1960's that captured the times of my Dad and his friends. It was a great compliment to the event. Joe was great to work with. Joe returned my calls promptly, came to the venue a week out to find the best location for him to set up at and arrived early on the day of the event to get set up and start playing music. Joe also brought 2 wireless mics which we used for speeches and roasts. DJ Joe Dean was a pleasure to work with and I would use him for any future events a DJ is needed. I highly recommend Joe and appreciate his professionalism. Thanks Joe for making our event so special.

DJ Joe is the best when it comes to professionalism, punctuality and the quality of work that he puts in to make each party more personal and fun. He listens and takes the time to make sure everything is followed through each and every detail. When we had to change the date of the party because of some unforeseen event, he made sure that his son, Joey ( also a DJ) was there to take his place. Joey did everything as planned. Everyone at the party including my daughter who celebrated her birthday that night had a blast! Thank you, Joe and Joey! You’re the best!

We absolutely loved DJ Steady Manos. The music he put together for our Anniversary party was perfect in every way. His light towers added a beautiful ambiance and made the evening special. He was very professional and several guests commented on his work and asked for his card. We would highly recommend him for any event.

Mr Spano was a top professional from our first contact thru the end of our wedding reception. He was in contact with the bride and groom more than once before the reception to assure everything was to their satisfaction, and had countless music choices. At the reception he served as an excellent emcee, stayed in contact with the bride and groom about the timing of events, and helped prompt food staff on their timing. Overall, he was very professional and friendly throughout, and we highly recommend him to anyone needing a true professional DJ.

My husband and I chose Joe for our Reception and I am so glad we did. He was very professional, between emails, text and calls he always responded in a timely manner. I never felt I had to worry or stress about anything. The Reception itself was wonderful...we gave him a music list with our requested songs and he played as many as he could in the time we had. :) He always made it a point to keep us in the loop as to what was going to come up next based on the "itinerary" we gave him. & lastly friends and family that are very conservative and don't dance...DID! People I never thought I would see dancing, were out on the dance floor. Joe did an amazing job! From offering to help set up and take down the decorations at the Reception to the actual DJ-ing...It was a great night & I HIGHLY RECOMMEND his services!
