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?

Dan was so awesome providing his DJ service as well as his photo booth service for our wedding! Everyone absolutely loved & enjoyed the photo booth, it was so easy to use, there were plenty of props to choose from & so many layout options to choose for your photo booth photos as well! We loved how the pictures came out! He was such a great DJ, played all the songs we wanted & requested, helped us set the right mood for every part of our wedding & did a great job of MCing as well! It was great working with him, he made it so easy for us which is something every soon-to-be-wed couple needs is confidence in vendors & that they'll take care of everything you need & ask for. Definitely would recommend him to anyone who's in need of a DJ, MC, and/or photo booth service!!

We asked TJ for some time to think about booking him as our DJ for our wedding . After establishing contact we asked him to give us until the end of the weekend. We messaged him back letting him know that we decided to book him as our Dj. His response was "sorry I'm now booked now, but I'm available on Saturday" which was 2 days later than our specified date. First of all who in their right mind would change their wedding date to accommodate a DJ? thats just ludicrous! He is receiving this one star review because he failed to get back to us if he was talking to another client for the same date. He should've messaged us back and said something along the lines of "hey just wanted to let you know there is another client requesting my services for that date are you still interested?" He never gave us priority for that date, he brushed us aside. He earned a 1 star because the lack of communication on his part you. Part of booking a Dj service is communicating with your prospective clients. He might be a decent 'press play button' person but we will never know because he burned his opportunity with us for our wedding day.

Several of my guests remarked on how great our DJ was and they didn't even know the whole of it. DJ2e kept the party focused on the guests and my daughter, not on himself. He chose music with perfect timing, especially as my entire schedule went south. We had based the timing of the evening on when the food was to be served...when the appetizers failed to show after an hour we were flying w/o a plan; dinner was so late that desserts didn't show till the party was practically over! Tuese checked in with me w/o stressing me out about how we should proceed and managed to hit all the fun and important parts that we needed to make the celebration complete. He was a rock and I can't recommend him more highly. Our event was ALL ages dancing and both young and old were more than satisfied, they barely noticed the catering screw up because everyone was having so much fun. Thank you Tuese!!
