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.

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.

First of all, thank you, my family and my kids had a great time. Even my daughter is a little bit picky on the music Dj T-Roc pulled it off. I heard some of the kids made a request and again Dj T-Roc delivered it. If I need a Dj in my next event I definetly give him a call🤘

I was Happy to have stumbled across this amazing app to find vendors I needed for a last minute Sweet 16 Birthday party. From the beginning I knew Dj Dubb would be a perfect fit. From communication, punctuality on arrival, his overall vibe with interacting and music was great! I would highly recommend. Ty so much Dj Dubb for making Samantha’s Birthday party a memory for the books! We will contact you very soon for another event.

Words can't express what i great choice i made by hiring peter for our weeding. From the moment my wife and i met him we had a good feeling that he was going to be the one to entertain our wedding. He has great communication skills and a great sense of personality with professionalism all together. After our meeting we hired him and communicated with him twice before hand to let him know what type of music we wanted played and the age groups he would be entertaining for. As we spoke he told us that he would be honored to be a part of our special occasion and do the best that we could. This sort of response was what we wanted to hear and hoped that he would deliver the excitement for our guests as he did for us. He arrived an hour earlier prior to the time we had discussed suitable for setup and for an overlay of our venue. This was a good sign and put us immediately at more ease. Throughout the night we had many special requests and every one of them were met. He is very personable and takes great pride in what he does and it truly showed the night of our wedding. We have high standards and he came highly reccomended. Our expectations were not met, they were exceeded ! Peter , thank you very much from the both of us . You made our day and everyone's at the wedding a wonderful experience. We will continue to use you for any events we have or anyone that is looking for a great DJ in the area we now know first hand who to send them too! , Thanks, John and Tina Watson .
