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.

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.

Two days before our rave event, our DJ called to cancel for personal reasons. Frantic, I called DJ Celeste Lear to see if she was available. We were in luck: her schedule was open on that day. She was very accommodating and spun an excellent set, as well as MCed a dance contest that had people talking for days. Thank you Celeste!

DJ Tuese was extremely responsive throughout the entire planning process which was much appreciated. He was such a great deal as well! He checked in with me every so often and that was really appreciated. Although he wasn't able to make it to the wedding due to being sick, he sent in a wonderful replacement and the evening went exactly as planned. If we ever need DJ services again, we will be sure to book Tuese! Thank you!!

DJ Champagne is absolutely the best! She did a fabulous job of communicating with me before the party to ensure everything went smoothly. She beautifully navigated the mood of the party and played fantastic music. All of our guests LOVED her and even tried to convince her to come out with us afterwards because she's so awesome. The next day my mom called me and said, 'the DJ was so good, I would absolutely hire her for parties in the future'. Do yourself a favor and hire her, you will not be dissapointed.

DJ Kannan did an excellent job at my wedding. When I first met him, I could see that he had not done many weddings but it was clear that he was entrepreneur and can deliver a memorable evening. We needed wireless mics for our ceremony. So, Kannan bought great quality ones to make sure everything is perfect. He also came to see the venue beforehand and made sure he understood our requirements. There were also some performances at the wedding. So, he had to co-ordinate with my family members to make sure that their songs are played at the right time :) On the day of the wedding, he was punctual and professionally dressed. He did an excellent sound setup for the ceremony. For the reception, he was both our MC and DJ. He kept the energy high and made sure that people were having fun. He had a good mix of Bollywood and western songs to keep the night going. Everyone loved the music and the wedding! I would definitely hire Kannan again for a future event.

This review is long overdue, but I want to add my strong recommendation (and 5 stars!) to Glenn's reviews. I was responsible for planning my mom's 60th birthday part in July. I had already hired a DJ (not Glenn) through Thumbtack and it seemed like everything was in order...until the DJ went MIA and I did not hear from him again after repeated calls, texts, and emails in the weeks leading up to the event. In short, the day before the party, I was in panic mode. I put another call out on Thumbtack and Glenn's name popped up. From the moment I reached out, he was responsive, professional, and easy to work with. On the day of the event, he showed up on time and made an extra effort to work with our theme (luau theme, even wearing a Hawaiian shirt!). I had sent him the playlist the day before and he stuck to it. When he received requests from other guests, he checked in with me before playing the songs. After, we had a minor issue with the payment, but we figured it out together and he was flexible and professional. I would hire Glenn again and - as I unfortunately learned - he is someone you can count on and trust 100% in this industry!

George was the DJ at my wedding. George is very friendly, efficient, and organized. He has an expansive and impressive repertoire of music. Getting ready for the wedding was very easy, my husband and I simply met with him and filled out some forms. The forms include what songs you want and when to play them and what genre of music you’d like played. They also include the schedule of the wedding so that George can MC at the reception. All in all he really felt the needs of the crowd at the reception and did an excellent job changing the music to the mood of the guests. The only thing I can think of that would need improvement is that his microphone could have been louder to get peoples’ attention at the cake cutting ceremony. My husband and I highly recommend George for any event you may be hosting. He is professional and does everything in a timely matter. We also appreciate him for being a veteran and fighting for our country. We like to support our veterans whenever we can.
