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.

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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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.

This dj was rented for a small prom in the Metrocenter area. We were looking for a dj who had an excellent value for the price. He was very professional and easy to work with. All of his equipment was very well cared for and was professional quality. I would definitely recommend him for dj services for your event.

DJ was very energetic and upbeat. Had a fun and positive attitude and had a great offering of music. Only thing, DJ could have been more talkative to the crowd and directed more of the evening. Overall very good experience.

The DJ's arrived promptly and were very professional. They were organized with playlists and a breakdown of music that was precisely what we wanted. The music was not too loud, and the assortment was great. The DJ also was willing to go the extra mile and call our raffle numbers out for our prizes, as well as take any special song requests. I couldn't be happier all around with the service from Windy City DJ's.

If you need a DJ for ANYTHING, Traviste is definitely the way to go. He DJ'd for an event with 400 college students, he managed to get EVERYONE on the dance floor (which didn't happen at the same event last year when a different DJ was hired), he had a wide variety of music, and he was able to take music requests, which people LOVED. Great event, GREAT DJ, would definitely recommend and hire again! Thank you, Traviste!

Dj was extremely respectful and willing to provide a great time he always asked for approval on everything which was so professional of him. Very positive energy and always gave us a yes ! His team was also very respectful and full of hype and positive vibes. The music we had asked for was played we loved his style of dj that we decided to pay another hour extra that's how great they were. We will definitely rehire for our next events and I 100% recommend this dj one of the best!

I would definitely recommend him! He was very responsive before and during the event. We needed a DJ for our company party and he played a great variety while still keeping it appropriate for the event- something that can get lost with other DJs. Regardless of function, this is the guy you would want for your party!

I hired Blak Ops Entertainment, and was glad I did because they were the perfect choice for our Corporate Event from the initial call with Black Ops Entertainment to the last moments of the event and I do mean start to finish, Dj Blak ops was extremely professional, interactive with our attendees, and accommodating to our guest and their request. There was a wide range of music and each request was easily met, Dj Blak Ops was well prepared, organized and everything went perfectly. The guest throughout the night could not stop commenting on how great the music was and I was floored by how well he read the crowd, this Dj truly loves what he does and his passion for it shows in his presentation of his work, We could not thank Blak Ops Entertainment enough and would strongly recommend him to any one that's looking for a great Dj that will make you grandmother get up out her seat and dance lol, he is definitely the man, awesome he's our Dj for all our future corporate and non-corporate events.
