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.

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.

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. 

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?

DJ Roxwell was awesome! Super nice and friendly. He was on time, reached out when he arrived, and was quick to set up and break his gear down. He was very professional and it was nice to feel like he had everything under control. Thanks again DJ! You will definitely be hearing from us again! :)

Dj Sofa King was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely responsive and professional in handling all questions and concerns. He truly wanted our event to be the best it could be and did everything in his power to make it awesome. He was available in the weeks prior to our New Years Event to come and scout out our location and test equipment at no extra cost which was very helpful. The party itself was a great time. The music choices and the flow of it all were outstanding and the karaoke is always an added benefit! DJ Sofa King comes as advertised and we would recommend him to anyone looking for an event DJ. Thank You!!!

We were blown away by the dj, he was not only super nice and very easy going and easy to work with, but I received complements all night about how great the dj was. We parties in the dance floor all night and he made sure to use all the songs I requested and even let my guests make requests! His price was very fair and he also had additional lighting upgrades if we wanted, he was very responsive, and he even was able to mc our wedding and keep us on our timeline since we didn't have a wedding coordinator to do it for us. We are so lucky to have had him! We would highly recommend him!

I had booked him for my wedding party. He was really good. I had given him a list of 60 songs and he brought those, and played them exactly at the right time. He used to change songs based on the response of the crowd. That is the great quality which many DJs do not have.

DJ Dan was GREAT! He was on time, well dressed and a professional. The music/light was great. The kids/teens really enjoyed the music/dancing and singing (they are normally bored in party for adults). The oldies enjoys the music and danced with the younger ones too. The photo booth was a hit too. Dan was also very accommodating and was willing to stay beyond the agreed time with out charge. He was also very interactive with the kids and teen. Even the Band singers danced during their break! All of this on a really good price deal. My family really like his service and want to extend our thank you for a job well done. You are definitely on our list on our next parties (and our friends).
