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.

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?

Joy has been by far the best DJ i have ever came in contact with. She was super punctual on keeping everything going in the order we needed it to go and always asked me and my husband if we were ready to move onto something else for our wedding reception. She can also sing which is amazing. I highly recommend Joy she will be the first i call if i ever need any DJ work.

I greatly enjoyed DJ JJ, he was so nice and reasonable for pricing. I know he worked hard to help make our day as special as possible. He worked with us, and got all the music we asked for. He was really good at reading the audience and playing music we would dance to. I'm sad that the night went short, but we didn't have the turnout we were hoping for, but our DJ was there, professional, and did both the reception and ceremony perfectly! Thank you!

We loved working with this business. Utmost respect for DJ Malcolm as he was prepared with contingency plans to cover all aspects of our event. We were perfectly matched with DJ Peter who kept the dance music flowing and he'd jump in to get dancing flowing. He busted out his great dance moves and switched up the music to fit the mood of the audience. Excellent MC'ing and he'd run over to help with the photo booth too. We highly recommend this business to everyone bc the quality and price point we're spot on.

JJ was awesome!! JJ was the DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception. We got so many compliments on how fun the wedding was and the great music selections. From the start of the DJ selection process, JJ was very responsive and professional. All of our special song requests were played and the timing was perfect! JJ created a fun party atmosphere which is exactly what we wanted! He even accommodated some last minute ideas like games! We received a lot of compliments on how smooth the event was and the timing of everything. JJ worked with the venue and wedding party to coordinate and get the timing right. It such a stress free and fun event thanks to JJ!!

DJ Malcolm was wonderful, he worked my wedding, played everything on the list I gave him, took suggestions even from my 8 year old son. The music wasn't too loud so you could still have a conversation with the people at your table but loud enough to have a good time. He was easy going, went with the flow and had a good time which made it that much more fun. my family will be using him in the future.

JJ Mendez was an absolute pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond to ensure that not only my wife and I but all of our guests had the time of their lives. He was punctual, professional and very skilled. He paid close attention to what we wanted and ensured that the dance floor was never empty. JJ, we would hire you again in a heartbeat. If you want a DJ who is knowledgeable, fun and professional JJ Mendez is your man! Thank JJ for making our wedding a night to remember!
