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.

DJ T-Roc was awesome. He showed up early to set up and was great with keeping the event moving with announcements. He always responded whenever I messaged him with any questions and even talked to my wife on the phone when she wanted to go over the wedding plans. If I have any other need for a DJ in the future, it’s going to be DJ T-Roc for sure.

DJ Lon Lee was the absolute best! I had a last minute cancellation two weeks before my wedding. DJ Lon Lee came thru and worked within my budget and provided me with exactly what I wanted. All my wedding guest stayed on the dance floor and danced the night away. Very professional, was on time, and knows his stuff!!Going forward, I will only use and recommend DJ Lon Lee!!

There are no words to say. Chris was one of the best Dj, and if it wasn’t for him the party will be boring. I really thank him for making the party go wild on my wedding day. He was very generous to help us get this day going... I would highly recommend this DJ:)

I was going to hire him for our wedding before a family member decided to contribute to our wedding by hiring another DJ. If it weren't for that, I would have closed the deal with DJ O.G. Live! He's extremely responsive and professional! I will come back to him for my next event.

DJ Prince William was awesome. He is super friendly and smiles a lot. He played a variety of music; something for every age and culture. His appearance was presentable (he was sharp y'all). He also joined the party on the dance floor. He was very engaging which I loved. We had a blast! I highly recommend DJ Prince William, he will not disappoint you. Thanks again Mr. and Mrs. Badmus

DJ Mevan Fernando (DJ N'Sane) did an excellent job for our 13 year old daughters birthday party. He showed up before the party started and was ready to go (even in the middle of the worst storm of the season). The girls loved the music he played and all 30 girls danced all night! We will definitely hire him again for future parties! Thanks Mevan...you really made the party!

We were very pleased with how DJ Lon handled our wedding reception. When we first met him, it was easy to talk with him. My husband and I gave him a link to a couple playlists we made on grooveshark that we wanted him to play for our reception's dinner hour and also a playlist of songs to play for dancing. He went the extra mile and also grabbed our cocktail hour playlist without us asking him! During the reception, he played all the songs that we wanted him to play, and he somehow magically blended them together seamlessly. He knew how to keep our guests on the dance floor to enjoy themselves by reading the crowd. It also helped that he was easy to contact; any songs he didn't have we were able to email to him so he could have the song to play. DJ Lon is a great dj and if I ever need a DJ again I won't hesitate to book him!

We had keybo Dj our wedding; it's hard to even begin to describe how happy we are that we went with him. He got everyone super lively and pumped. All of our friends and family keep telling us how great they thought he was, he was super easy to work with and put us at ease, he blended into our wedding seamlessly. It felt like we just happened to have friend who was also a really awesome DJ!
