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.

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 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?

We hired DJ Syke for my sweet sixteen and he was definitely the best choice. DJ Syke kept my party going all night and never slacked expecially when it came to music! He knew how to keep everyone dancing and having fun! I look forward to working with him in the future for any partys I have. He is the perfect choice for any occasion! If you are looking for a kind and fun guy to keep your party going I highly recommend DJ Syke. You will not regret it!

DJ Prince William was the ABSOLUTE BEST. We weren't sure we wanted a DJ for our wedding, but decided to hire Prince William and are extremely happy we did so. He was easy to communicate with before the wedding, and when we didn't know exactly what our first song would be, he picked the absolute perfect song based on our criteria and wants. On the day, he found the perfect place to play music for the ceremony, and got the party moving. He was so nice and everyone loved him. The fact that he could read a crowd so well and emcee with the best of them would be enough to hire him, but he surpassed my expectations in so many other ways! I told him this at the end of the night, but DJ Prince William will be my DJ for life! I'm now actively looking to host parties just to have him DJ. Seriously, HIRE Prince William, he is the absolute best.

We completed our consultation with Chris. Your DJ should have experience, suggestions, ability to communicate, and passionate about work. Chris spends the time upfront to prepare for a smooth wedding as well as provides guidance that the typical couple would normally not have knowledge about. Light show, equipment, and DJ services makes Chris best value in the industry. Looking forward to the big day, thanks Chris.

DJ SLO was easy to communicate with and made us feel very comfortable to book him for event last minute. He plays a very good mix of music for all age groups.
