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.

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?

The experience we had with DJ Vallas was amazing! He was very professional from the get go. He was organized, thorough, knowledgeable, punctual and easy to work with. He performed and came through with every minute detail we asked of him. I would definitely hire him again if I were in need of a DJ for future parties. He had the dance floor filled and moving nonstop for my daughter's Sweet 16. Bottom line, my daughter was very happy with no complaints. And we all know how hard it is to please a teenage girl! Great DJ! Worth his weight in gold!

Choosing DJ Notion to be our wedding DJ was hands down the best decision we made!! There was never a moment without TONS people on the dance floor at once, the music selection was amazing, and he even made sure to include our “must play” songs in there! He was super professional and quick to respond to us throughout the entire process as well. Not to mention the lighting setup he provided added such a wonderful and much-needed ambiance to tie everything together. He was definitely a fan favorite at our wedding and we’ll definitely be looking to book him for future events, and recommend him to anyone we know needing a DJ :) thank you so much for making our wedding day even more fun!

DJ Cardigan was super easy going, came on time. Had a great set up. Was friendly. Gave me the exact music and vibe that I asked for. Guest had a great time. He was our second entertainer so on top of getting everyone to dance he eased up the night with some relaxing music to help wrap up Our party as requested. I gave him the genre and my guest loves his selections. Thanks DJ Cardigan!

Chris was amazing! He helped us with the timeline. He created the perfect entrance for us. He played all the music we requested. He came early. Answered all of my calls and made our wedding amazing. He gave glow sticks to the kids who had so much fun with them. Would highly recommend him to anyone considering. The DJ makes the wedding!

John Brown was hired to DJ the 40th reunion at Bishop Montgomery High School. During the cocktail hour of the event, as requested. John played guitar and sang some of our acoustical favorites. For the remainder of the reunion John did a great job of playing the music that was requested by the alumni and kept the event flowing. This is the second time I have hired John Brown to be in charge of entertainment, and both times have been pleased, he is a true professional.

The most amazing DJ that we had the pleasure of having at our wedding day! Michael was a vital part of the evening and kept the music going! He was patient and kind and went with the flow! He checked in with me throughout the night, he was so easy going that it took so much stress off of me! We will be using him again in the future for all our events, he was a wonderful MC, and just an all around kind soul. He was able to accommodate my schedule changes on the fly without missing a beat (pun intended). Our guests complimented his skill! Thank you so much for being such a vital part of our special day! - Samantha & Eugene

DJ Special K (aka Keith) had us up and dancing the night away under the stars at the Redondo Beach Hilton Tapestry for our Class of '82 40th reunion! Keith was responsive from the start, connecting with a phone call to gather the information instead of only emails. He was flexible throughout the process as I had variables dictating the hours I would need his services. He was professional and punctual arriving in plenty of time to set up. He wore an 80's shirt, brought some uplighting and playing vinyl was an added retro cool touch! Being a former event planner I highly recommend Keith because he brings value, quality, dependability, and excitement to the event. Thanks K!!
