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.

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 Evolution was awesome! We hired him for my daughter’s 10th birthday party. From the beginning, he was on top of it to make sure he had the appropriate selection of songs that the kids would enjoy. We were impressed with his responsiveness, professionalism, and organization, as he was able to quickly set up and be ready for the event with time to spare! The kids had a blast at the party! They loved the lights, music and of course… karaoke! DJ Evolution helped ensure the party moved along smoothly and the kids had a wonderful time!

DJ Prince William was wonderful to work with. He responded promptly to any messages I sent and was very clear about what his services included. On the day of our event, he showed up on time and prepared. Even went the extra mile to coordinate with the venue contact about the lighting options in the hall to make sure there would be a good ambiance as the night went on. He was a great MC through the night as well and was able to handle some of the song requests that came up throughout the night. Overall I would highly recommend working with DJ Prince William!

Our middle school had a great experience with Double Vision Entertainment! Daniel, the DJ, communicated with various advisors and financial people clearly and provided information in a timely manner prior to the event. He answered questions about his services thoroughly and promptly. He was very professional. The day of the event he showed up on time, unloaded his equipment without assistance, and was ready to DJ at the start of the event. He played school-appropriate songs that were current as well as some throwback songs and Halloween songs (our event was a Halloween Party). We had almost 200 students in attendance and they are dancing the whole time!

Hiring DJ Stoke was an excellent choice for our event. His taste in music is exemplary and fit perfectly to what we had requested. He also arrived early to set up and conducted himself in a very professional manner. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

We are so glad that we hired him for our daughter's sweet 16 birthday party!!! DJ Vallas was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly from the beginning till the end! He was extremely easy to communicate with and was very easy to reach whenever I needed to speak with him. He's a super friendly guy and an amazing DJ!! He had my daughter's friends on their feet all nite and he played all the songs she gave him for her playlist! His sound is quality, his lights and equipment were great, his pricing was very competitive but most importantly his DJ'ing skills were awesome!! We loved him and will definitely hire him again!

Michael was quick to respond, his quote very reasonable. He was sensitive and kind to the celebration of life event and worked with our requests for specific songs and his equipment quality. We had attendees comment he was better than the DJ at weddings they have recently been to. Would highly recommend and hire again.

Sidney was awesome. He had great lighting, he let us pick our own music, he even went as far as finding music for us in Farsi with just a song name. He was super responsive and said yes to everything, unlike some other DJ companies that can't be bothered with requests or music choices. Would hire him in a heartbeat again!

I'm so glad I decided to post my ad for a DJ on Thumbtack! Johnny contacted me immediately via email and was super professional and thorough from the beginning. He sent me a very detailed email explaining his services and he had links to his website that were very exciting! On the nite of my husband's 50th birthday party, Johnny was there early to a set up his equipment, I was truly impressed with his timeliness and friendliness. He had the crowd on their feet dancing while he spinned some of the hottest hits!! We just loved Johhny, he helped make our party a huge success and we would hire him again in the future! Sincerely, Lori B.
