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.

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

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 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.

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 Dave did an amazing job at our wedding! He was professional and humorous at the same time. He kept every thing moving through out the wedding so that nothing was left out. He took the worry away from us having to organize the wedding and left us to enjoy our day. I would highly recommend DJ Dave to any one in need of a DJ!

DJ Earful helped to make our reunion event more successful than we imaged it could be. Every song was perfect (thanks to a lot of hand work curating a playlist prior to the event that was shared with me) plus taking requests to make sure that participants got to dance to songs that evoked great high school memories. DJ Earful was prompt, courteous, and the consummate professional! I would highly recommend DJ Earful for your next event!

DJ Fly Guy was spectacular! Could not have asked for a better DJ and MC for my daughters sweet 16 party! He even got out on the dance floor (with lots of encouragement from the kids) and showed us his awesome dance moves😁!! Would not hesitate to book him again and in fact will be booking him for my mother’s 90th birthday party next month! 5 STARS all the way!!!!!

The wedding went smoothly because Tim was in charge and kept things moving with transitions to every event and activity. He worked well on the spot when my bridal party made last minute changes, and worked with me to plan every element of my event. From the first meeting I knew I could trust him to DJ my wedding due to his professionalism and knowledge. Thank you DJ Earful!

We loved everything about Mike. He was super attentive to our needs and quick to change things up if they were not working. Mike has a dynamic that will get a party started. He is by far the best DJ that I've had the pleasure of using. Our wedding was a huge success thanks to Mike. He got everyone onto the dance floor and made it fun. Mike will be the first person I recommend to anyone wanting a DJ for an event.
