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?

DJ Alex was amazing. He kept the party going all night! The uplighting and DJ booth lights added a ton of ambience to our venue, I would definitely recommend and rebook for a future event.

DJ Memo was great! We hired him for my daughter's Quince and he made sure we got exactly what we wanted. He was our MC for the night and even coordinated with the mariachi and the banda. We will definitely hire him in the future. Thank DJ Memo for making my daughter's day even more special!

DJ Stallion Entertainment was amazing! My husband and I and all of our guests couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful he was. Not only did he play good tunes, but he went above and beyond. He pretty much hosted the whole event and even helped pour drinks for people which he didn’t have to do. I would definitely recommend his services.

Wendell was absolutely amazing to work with. He was so patient with me when I was all over the place and kept changing my mind on music choices. We are so thankful that we chose him as our DJ, he made our wedding feel so special. Not to mention that he kept in communication with me to make sure everything went perfectly. Thank you so much again for everything you did to make our special day perfect!

DJ Alex was everything we hoped for and more! I counted on him to walk me through the traditional procedures of a reception and “we” came through with flying colors. I also learned that the night before our wedding he experienced an automobile accident, and yet was not deterred from making it to our wedding early. Not only was he a true Master of Ceremony, I felt like he was a long-time friend of the family. There aren’t enough words to commend him and his work. It truly was a beautiful event and Alex greatly contributed to its beauty. Dr. DH Bolton

I hired George just a few weeks before my wedding after the other DJ flaked out. George got right to business preparing for the wedding and asked me all the questions he needed to be prepared. During the wedding he was excellent. I forgot to provide him with a couple of things that i said i would but he just rolled with it. He totally bailed us out of what could've been a bad situation. Most of all when the dancing started he got everybody going! I've never seen so many people dance at a wedding. and the dancing didn't stop until the wedding ended and they kicked everybody out \
