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.

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?

Not positive experience! While we understand he runs a company of DJ’s, we did expect that Jeremiah would be the DJ, at the very last minute another person was assigned as the DJ and it appears that they brought their daughter or young friend as they were observed talking the entire night. Requested songs were not played even though I was the specific person who hired the DJ, songs were ending in the middle, just very disappointing- I am sure JJ will have a response but as the paying customer I should be able to express my disappointment as so many guests have since brought their own negative comments to me

DJ N'SANE is top-notch! A true professional who knows how to keep the party going. For our wedding, he knew how to read the crowd, and made adjustments to keep the energy and excitement up. A real class act, though and through. Mevan arrived well before he needed to start playing music to ensure he was able to set up his equipment. Also, his equipment (speakers, microphone, DJ booth, etc) was top of the line as well. Always sounding great! Just the right volume at all times. He made it all look so easy - and that is the mark of a true master. Mevan arrived in a classy suit that matched the feel of our wedding. Before the wedding, from pre-booking all the way up to wedding day, he was on top of communications, and I never worried at all about this aspect of our wedding. I will recommend Mevan to anyone having a party at which they'd like to have a real good time on the dance floor. Or even if there isn't a dance floor - he can provide the just-right music for the occasion. I cannot thank you enough, Mevan. We had such a blast at our own wedding, and you had a major role in that.

If I could give Steve at DJ celebrations a 10 star rating I would! First of all, he spent many many hours with us coming up with a plan for the evening and never was in a rush. Since our ceremony was outside and the reception was inside, it required two separate systems which Steve handled perfectly. Steve was an expert at reading the crowd and had everyone on their feet all night with his amazing music and talent! The manager at the venue even commented that it was one of the most fun events he had seen because everyone look like they were having a fabulous time! Thank you Steve for a wonderful experience!

Steve is wonderful. It's evident upon first meeting him that he is passionate about what he does. We felt confident in not only hiring Steve to be our wedding DJ but to also create our wedding monogram (gobo) and bring/manage the Photo Booth. Because of him we were able to have all these extra amenities at an affordable rate while having ourselves, a dream wedding and our guests, an amazing time! My favorite part about working with Steve was handing him a list of nearly five dozen songs. (He'll tell you that for a 6 hour wedding, you'll be lucky if you can get in about 2 hours of dancing, which basically means he'd be able to play 1/4 of our list.) He selected the right ones; he had everyone up and dancing, from my 6 year old cousin to my 85 year old grandma. Everyone was singing and dancing. Above all, Steve is humble, honest, and open. His priority is ensuring your day be the way you want it to be.
