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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ 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.

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.

Evan was such a great DJ! He came early to ensure that everything was ready and he gave us some tunes to jam to while we set up for our event. He so quickly had access to the many genre and song requests and his clean up was quick and painless. Thank you so much, Evan, for making our event the blast that it was. With warm regards and much thanks, the residents and staff at Colonial County Club.

Great DJ. Perfect for teens or any event. Has great equipment and props and gets involved to make sure that the party is a hit. He did such a great job at my daughter's sweet 16 party and everyone commented that they had never seen so many teenagers dancing at a party. They also sang kaeroke and played party games. Also he played cleaned versions of the songs that the kids like so it keeps it classy.

My husband and I got married on a cruise and decided to have a reception when we returned home. Aaron was exactly what we were looking for in a DJ. He kept everything on schedule and made adjustments when needed. My husband actually contacted him without me knowing it to arrange a surprise for me! The music was on point. His pricing was reasonable as well. I would definitely hire Aaron again. Thank you for everything!!

Jeremiah was very excellent!!! He did our wedding on Saturday and he accommodated so well to last minute changes. Our wedding had about 250 guests and he knew just what to play so that people could keep on the dance floor. Jeremiah took the time to drive far just to meet us before the event and listened to every word to make our visions come to life! We wanted to keep our party clean and family fun and he met our requests and got everyone of every taste in the dance floor. He knew what he was doing and made sure to keep the bride and groom happy! We definitely found our family go-to DJ for any event/ party!! Thank you Jeremiah for giving us our dream wedding, being flexible, professional, punctual, sweet, and patient! Also, thank you for providing such great DJ for a remarkable price! If you are checking out his site to hire him, get him and do not think twice! He is amazing!!! Thank you again Jeremiah!
