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.

Disappointed that the DJ showed up late, didn't really play most of the requested songs and the speakers kept cracking.

Jimmy Jam did a great job before and during the party. Jimmy Jam let us provide a playlist for our party on short noticed and he had all the songs we listed. Jimmy Jam was also cool with us providing a few songs the day before our event with no problems. We had a party with a 20 year age gap or more between the attendees and DJ Jimmy Jam kept the party rockin for everybody. Everybody had a great time and we will definitely hire DJ Jimmy Jam again!

Rick was wonderful! I hired him for my clients 60 birthday event. It was a 70s inspired theme and Rick came well prepared. He was able to read the audience and people enjoyed the dance floor all evening. He was professional, had great equipment, did great with MCing,and he has a wonderful personality. Wonderful DJ who I would hire again for another one of my events. Thank you Rick!
