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.

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?

Wow!! We hired DJ Forgot the day before our wedding because our previous DJ cancelled on us. It was a very stressful situation, as you can imagine, and DJ Forgi came through shining for our big day! He brought the music and lighting and had all the music choices that we had for events like the cake cutting and dances that we wanted. I was absolutely beyond impressed by his professionalism, his responsiveness to our crowd and especially his ability to accommodate our event and make it the celebration that my wife and I had always dreamed of. Thank you so much!! If you need a DJ for any event I'd absolutely recommend DJ Forgi!!

Although I already had a DJ for my wedding, I hired The Personal DJ to do a mixtape for my father/daughter dance. It was amazing! He was able to make the mixtape quickly and in great fashion! The price was affordable! The sound and quality was excellent! I'm very grateful for his help!

He was very lively and kept the music going and people up and dancing. During the dinner he played very pleasant music for everyone to enjoy listing and dining to. Thank you DJ Charlie

DJ Del was awesome! We found him on Thumbtack, listened to a few of his soundcloud mixes, had a phone chat and signed a contract to have him DJ our November wedding. Done. Del is professional, very responsive via email and text and was great about setting up phone calls to discuss music choices and working with our coordinator and photographer to create a timeline. We really appreciated his fun and positive attitude and all the music he played at our wedding was great and got people on the dance floor! Would 100% recommend Del - thanks again!

Erik was DJ for our wedding in August and he did a fantastic job. He had everyone young and old dancing all night. He played everything we wanted to hear and took requests. He is very professional and accommodated all our needs.

DJ Hife did an amazing job. He did so great we kept him extra because people wouldn't leave the Dance Floor. We definitely will use him again. Awesome mix of music. He also played special requests.

Larry was great for the Halloween Party that we threw. He was very familiar with music we liked. His setup is second to no one. He is more expensive than your average DJ, but they will not compare to what Larry is able to bring to the party and is not that much of a difference between many of the options. All of our guests had a great time, I expect to use him again in the future for any parties.

DJ Drue rocked the house!! he came to our middle school dance and had the kids dancing the entire night, was current with music and knew exactly what to play! He was professional from the first conversation, kept in contact with me up until the event, we couldn't have had a better event, the kids have already requested he return...I will not be looking anywhere else for any event we have, he's our guy!!

Mike was AMAZING to have at my wedding!! he was so fun, kept the guests dancing, and my entire family loved him. He was so accommodating with pricing and was willing to help a young bride with a small budget. He is funny and really tries to make your day perfect. He was an amazing DJ that kept the night going and really felt like he cared about the wedding as much as I did. thank you so much Mike for great music at the wedding!!
