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?

Wendell did a phenomenal job as the DJ and MC for my daughter's wedding reception. From our first meeting forward, Wendell was professional, listened to all the requests from the bride and groom, gave us more ideas for the reception and was a lot of fun at the event. Everyone enjoyed themselves as he played music for all ages! The dance floor was rocking all night and we actually had to tell the guests that we had to shut it down as our time at the center was up! I would definitely recommend Wendell to anyone who needs a DJ/MC for their events! Great guy and we couldn't be happier with his services.

I would recommend them to anybody. Working with a bride to be can be very stressful for anybody. Through all my constant changes even last minute one Francisco was so very patient with me and understanding. They were very professional. Finding a great reliable DJ's is not easy... All I can say is amazing I was very impressed

Billy Scott is the man! He was a great Dj and Mc for our wedding reception last weekend. We talked to him beforehand for about an hour and we could tell he had really good energy and professionalism. We helped coordinate our reception alongside the maid of honor and photographer and every person had a blast dancing with his playlist from songs we suggested. I would 100% use his services again and we highly recommend him for anyone else! He is #SecondtoNone

Amazing DJ! If you choose not to hire him, you're missing out! He made our wedding experience memorable and fun. He had a timeline for events to fit our wedding, and he was flexible when our wedding was pushed to an hour later only a couple weeks before! He was punctual, friendly, professional, and everyone was commenting on the amazing music he was playing. We were all dancing until the last minute our venue was available, and none of us wanted the party to stop. Thank you for an incredible memory of the best party we've ever had!!
