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.

DJ Vallas was the best DJ I have ever hired! He was at my event on time and was very professional. I would recommend DJ Vallas to anyone that is looking for a great DJ. His price was very reasonable. I am planning on hiring him for my next event.

We had Prince William as our DJ for our wedding last week and he was AMAZING!! We only had a small wedding with 18 guests but he kept the party rocking! He was very responsive, punctual, dressed appropriately, and an amazing DJ and MC. He is worth every penny and more!! We are so glad we found him! If you are looking for a DJ, don't think twice in hiring him. He is the best!!!

Andrew did an awesome job DJ-ing my event. He showed up timely to set up prior to my event beginning and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music selection. I am a singer and he provided a microphone and sound system. He is really in his element as a DJ. I plan on using him again. Thank you so much Andrew I really enjoyed your work!

DJ Lon Lee was a hit. He had people dancing in the street. Everyone had a great time. He announced all the raffles we did. We received a ton of compliments on having him at our event.

This review is long overdue (I got married a year and a half ago). I hired this DJ in hopes he would be amazing since he had great reviews. He just didn't have my guests up and moving. My wedding wasn't supposed to end til midnight and people started leaving around 11. Mind you, I'm half White half Peruvian and my family loves to dance. He did come one time and was definitely friendly.

Armando was the best DJ I have ever had. We had a backyard birthday party with family and friends. Armando kept the party moving! Everyone danced from the grandparents to the grandkids. Armando was punctual, had great suggestions in how to set up and of course played a great wide variety of music. His equipment was modern and new and I already have him in mind for our next two parties. Thank you Armando for making my birthday a very memorable one.

My experience with dj klymaxx was very positive. He provided services for a banquet for our organization and kept ppl dancing. More importantly he was able to please a very diverse crowd. We had attendees of all ages and races and he did not disappoint. More importantly he worked with us on the price. We are a nonprofit organization and he was able to help us come in within our budget. I will definitely keep him in mind for our organizations future events. Thanks for making our event a success.

Martin was Great! He was on time, played the songs I asked him to before our event. He was also extremely flexible and was quick to react with requests during the event. He actually cared about us, we were not just "the next client". Very personable and friendly, yet very professional. I offered him food and drinks as much as he wanted, his answer was "that's ok, I'm here for the guests". Have hired dj's before and he was our favorite! Thank you Martin for making our event so much better!

We could not have picked a better DJ. From the first meeting to the day of the wedding he showed professionalism. He gave us great advice in creating a timeline for our wedding reception and executed it seamlessly on our wedding day. It was clear from our interactions with Chris that he has a lot of experience with weddings, and so we felt confident going into our wedding knowing that he was working with us. Chris arrived well ahead of time to make sure everything was in place for the wedding. He came through when we found out our original wedding coordinator was a no show.Chris stepped up and took over making sure everything was taken care of (guests thought he was the planner). Our wedding would not have turned as great as it did if it wasn't because of Chris' expertise. The guests all raved about him. He entertained throughout the evening. I cannot thank him enough for making our special day unforgettable. Truly recommend him and will definitely hire him again.
