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. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

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.

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.

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.

I was so happy to have hired DJ A-young for my daughter's graduation party. He was so professional and very thoughtful for playing all of my daughter's songs she requested. All of her friends had a blast! His lighting and set up was absolutely perfect! He was responsive and punctual to all of our needs. I will definitely hire him again for future parties. If you want a DJ that will make your party memorable, you better hire DJ A-young!!!

Alex was the MC/DJ at our Wedding. He was Awesome and saved the day when we stepped out for a minute during our reception just to go to our room to change my shoes and got locked out for an hour. Alex took over playing line dances and got the party going so great that we were barely even missed! Best DJ/MC ever!

Brian was great! The attendees said they loved having a DJ and, Brian arrived in time to be up and playing as soon as the event began. He played straight through, adjusted the music to address the event activities and got everybody up and dancing!! Awesome job, we will definitely use him again. Also, several attendees were impressed enough to ask about using him if they needed a DJ. Thanks Brian!!

I found Bill on Thumbtack 2 days before my wedding so as you can imagine I was pretty stressed out. All of that stress went out the window after my first email exchange, his price was beyond fair and his overall attitude was amazing. He was a definite highlight of our big day everyone loved our "singing DJ". Thanks DJ Bill!

DJ Alex was reliable and fun. He made the small space work for him without any issues. It was a small party and people danced the whole time. I would definitely hire him again for another party I was hosting.

Hired Muzz Productions to dj my 50th birthday party and I couldn't have been happier with the music. Joe did an excellent job playing the music I requested as well as keeping the party going. You won't be disappointed with hiring Muzz Productions.

Alex was Perfect! We had two phone interviews and one in person meeting and he listened to all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. Plenty of our guests came to us afterwards and agreed he was an awesome DJ, he took plenty of requests, kept the crowd dancing and made it unforgettable. Would highly recommend.

DJ Alfonz. Never showed up to our event. The day before we went over all the music and the next day he just didn't show. I tried calling and never got got passed voice mail. Never heard from him. It was so disappointing to have counted on him and we had to use cd music.

DJ Purd Man played at our annual Summer kick off bash. We hosted 55 people and he exceeded our expectations. He played our playlist along with some wonderful additions and his mixes were off the hook. He kept us all dancing. He was on time, professional and friendly. He was open to requests but made sure it was ok with us that were hosting the party. We will be sure to use him every year. :) Thank you, Leonard. You ROCK!
