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.

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 Purd Man was very professional and his DJ'ing skills were wonderful. We had a mixed crowd at our corporate event and he was able to get everyone on the dance floor. I strongly recommend DJ Purd Man!

Where do I begin? DJ Alex was beyond amazing. From start to finish Alex made sure everything was perfect. DJ Alex was in constant contact with me all the way up to my party. When Alex arrived he greeted me with a hand shake and a big hug. Within minutes he was already part of the family. Alex made sure everything was perfect the entire night. Words cannot express how much we appreciated him. Alex is an amazing DJ and a great man. We will 1000% be using him again and again. Thank you DJ Alex you made our party outstanding 👍👍👍👍👍👍 Prompt response and 100% proffesional right out of the gate. 100% hired and I cant wait to have you DJ at my sons graduation party. Thanks again for all your help.

After many years of using the same DJ for our annual Christmas Party - he retired. I was bummed - until I found Anthony - DJ Stallion Entertainment! He showed up and showed out. He had our dance floor more active than I had seen it in years! Everyone was very pleased with his selection of music. He coordinated with the dance instructor we had for a portion of the evening as well. When I find something that works, I tend to stick with it. I booked him immediately after our function for the next year! If you are looking for a great DJ - look no further!

Noel's profile is very impressive and well put together. I have been comparing multiple DJs recommended by thumbtack and I was immediately drawn to his proposal. Unfortunately, my venue provided a DJ and with heavy hear will not be able to hear him play. He definitely have great customer service and reaches out for interest. I will definitely hire him if I have another event to coordinate. Great customer service. A+

If you want a DJ who knows his eras and the music that comes with them then DJ NICK GARCIA is your man. He is FUN, CONFIDENT, HE LISTENS, but most of all he's WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! I 100% highly recommend Nick for any event you have I promise you won't be disappointed :) Thanks Nick for making my Son's 30th Surprise Birthday Party unforgettable or as Jeffrey put it, "IT WAS EPIC!!"

DJ Or was such a pleasure to work with! He made everything go so seamless and smooth at our wedding. The music played such a significant part in not only navigating the wedding but bringing our friends and family together and all of our intimate moments in ways we couldn't imagine! With only 1 or 2 phone calls and a couple Spotify playlists he really grasped the feeling and mood I wanted for the ceremony and reception. I can't thank DJ Or enough for his amazing service and overall easy going nature.

Bill Pence did the music for our wedding ceremony, reception and dancing. The ceremony started at 5 pm and the reception and dancing lasted until 10:00 pm. Bill was, by far, better than any DJ I have ever heard. The music for the ceremony was perfect. Some guests even commented how wonderful the music was during the ceremony. During the reception and dinner, Bill not only played great music, he sang some of the songs during this time! His singing was better than the original recordings.....the guests that figured out it was him singing and not the original artists were amazed! He has a fantastic voice and the live music was wonderful. The dancing music started after dinner and once it started, everyone was dancing! Bill played and sang everyone's favorite dance music. The dance floor was jam-packed the entire two hours, from 8-10pm! Everyone had a great time at our wedding and all of the guests said Bill was one of the main reasons it was so fun! I would recommend Bill Pence Music in a second to anyone wanting a GREAT time! He was spot-on with his music and is very professional and friendly! Thanks Bill for making our wedding such a success!
