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.

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.

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 Zuni did a wonderful job providing music for our wedding ceremony and reception! He was very responsive, easy to work with and nailed the remix request we had for our first dance! :) He read the crowd well and kept a good flow of energy throughout the night! Thanks, DJ Zuni

Quick response, very professional, and is able to DJ to both children and young adults. Very punctual so I have no doubt that the experience will be nothing less.

Evan was our DJ for our wedding and we absolutely loved him! He was extremely professional and really worked the crowd. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. We can't thank him enough for making our wedding the most magical (and stress-free) day of our lives simply by ensuring that everything went smoothly and really running the show. Can't wait to work with you again, Evan!

DJ Steven was amazing!!! We celebrated my parents 50th Anniversary and the night couldn't have gone any better with Steven playing all their favorite Classic Oldies but Goodies! He mixed up the evening also with music that kept everyone on the dance floor moving! Steven is easy to work with and will recommend and book him for future events. Thanks again Steven!

Sherard contacted me ahead of time, filled me in on what he needed from me. He arrived on time, prepared and friendly. He played great music and did a fantastic job of structuring the lyrics so that they were appropriate for our 13 year old’s party. I would 100% recommend him and hope to book him again in the future is we ever need a DJ!

I Had my daughters 10th birthday party on February 15, 2014. I was looking for a DJ and Mr. Evan came highly rocommended. I looked him up on thumbtack and I got incontact with him. spoke to DJ Evan about what I needed for her party. His pricing was very reasonable and he was so nice to offer other options to make her day even better, I went with them and boy was I surprised. I gave him all the information for the party. He was there already setup and ready to go before I was there. He had everything set up like we tallked about. The kids had a ball playing games, karoke with live screens so the kids could actually see the videos from the music he played, and dancing to the music from the list I provided. He played appropriate music and even had karoke for my 22month old to sing. She had a ball too. Everyone was so pleased with Evan. He was very professional, nice, attentive, and made sure everything went as planned and everyone had fun. I am actually doing a party for myself. I am having him Dj an adult party for me that's how great he is. Mr. Evan my daughter wanted me to thank you for a wonderful time. She said "it was the best birthday I ever had!

Jeremiah was great! Thank you for dressing up for our wedding event, being punctual, professional, and so polite to everyone. We would recommend Jeremiah to anyone because he drove so far just to make our wedding happen. We didn't even have any songs picked out for our first dance or our grand entrance but he picked the perfect songs. Jerimiah was supposed to end at 9pm but stayed extra just because we had a few guests hanging around. Thank you so much for a great DJ experience and attending our freestyle last minute wedding! Everyone had a great time! The lights Jerimiah brought to light up the dance floor was super fun too!

Michael and his wife were awesome from day 1. Always on top of responses to my questions via email, and always on the same page. We had the same taste in music so right off the bat we were super excited to work together on my wedding. Being the micromanager that I am, I wanted to make sure everything was perfect, and my gosh, he definitely helped get it there. Jennifer helped my bridal party (and myself) know when to start walking to the processional, and Michael helped me surprise my husband with the song we walked out to. They really made the whole night go smoothly, and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ duo for a better price too! Thank you so much guys. I really hope you had fun eating pizza and cupcakes with my crazy family.
