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 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 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.

Reviews for Gardena djs

I hired DJ Ceeej for my birthday party this weekend and was beyond satisfied. It was a small crowd of people all over 40yrs old. I wanted the mood to be chill, but reminiscent of college days. DJ Ceeej was spot on in interpreting my request. He arrived early enough to set up and was very professional and incredibly friendly. He read the crowd very well, and definitley set the tone for a great night. All night people were complimenting his choices and everyone asked where I found him. At the end of the night we didn't want him to leave and fortunately he stayed to hang out and we really really enjoyed his company. I will definitely be using his services again, and would refer him to friends/family in a heartbeat.

DJ Chris Canelo was a great choice for our event. We met at the venue to discuss details ahead of time and sign the contract. I was able to communicate with him for any changes up until the day of. He arrived on time and set up quickly. The music and vibe was great. Our party was a success and we were extremely happy with the music, lighting and mc he provided.
