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.

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.

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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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?

What can I say?? The best DJ I have heared in a long time. My 2 original DJ’s backed out last minute and True Brothers was a life saver. He was on time, dressed for the occasion and interacted with my guest which I liked very much. I would hire him on the spot again no questions asked. If ur looking for a professional and down to earth DJ u have found him.

We couldn’t have hired a better person to DJ our daughters’ Sweet 16 and 18 Birthday Party. He really got the crowd moving! He arrived early and finished on time, and he was so flexible...moving from set list to requests. Everyone loved him. What a great night. Thank you!

I hired David to DJ my Mother's Surprise 70th Birthday Party, he was very polite, easy to talk to, and wanted to make sure that my needs were met. On the day of the party David arrived on time and kept the party jumpin' all night!!! I will use David's services again and would recommend for all your party needs.

Joshwayy is so fun! Hired him for our San Diego State events for the second time and he crushed it! He plays Tom's of genres for our diverse population, he even comes out and dances. He is an amazing Host as well! Engaging, eloquent just an all around entertainer! I have thrown events for 20 years and with no exaggeration, Joshwayy is the best all around DJ I have worked with!

He is very knowledgeable in his work, takes pride, and makes sure your event goes smoothly even though you may have missed a small detail. He dj at our wedding and was opened to our scheduling due to last minute changes the day of the event. He is a great mc and knows how to speak to an audience. Honestly there was nothing I didn’t like about this deejay. I would definitely recommend and hire again in the near future.

The DJ was very professional and reasonably priced. He requested artists that my son wanted to hear and also mixed in some of the music that I liked. I would have liked for him to engage the crowd from beginning to end, take cues from the crowd and know when to play what music to get and keep the crowd moving and knowing what songs to play off one another. Overall he did a good job and I think with more experience it will come.

A few days before our wedding our dj backed out. My now husband reached out to Charles and within a couple hours he appeared at our home to save the day. He presented ideas that I had not even imagined. He is so professional and pays attention to detail. The MC skills were off the chain, he never allowed the guest to not be entertained and he understood the flow of the emotions that were prevalent during the actual wedding vows, as well as, the reception.
