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.

We hired DJ Dub T based on reviews on Thumbtack. If I could give a 6-star review for his service, I would! Our staff had a great time, the music was wonderful, DJ played requests, incorporated our frequent raffles and games into his set, and was super fun! He is highly recommended.

Amazing!!! He saved the day for our wedding. We had some major issues with our original DJ and he was thankfully available. He was on time, did exactly what we wanted, kept people dancing. We got compliments all night about how great our DJ was. I would 100% recommend using him!

My wife and I booked DJ Rank1 for our wedding on November 8, 2019. Before making our decision as to who to hire as our DJ, we met with DJ Rank1 and his wife Tess. Let me tell you that this married couple are dynamic and so professional. Tess was on her game with the structure of how the reception would go (keep in mind we only needed their services for the reception; however, they are willing and able to do the music for a ceremony if need be). After my fiancé (now my wife) met with them our decision was easy! We hired them and couldn’t be more happy with the choice. DJ Rank1 knows his music! His mixes and runs into the next song are amazing! Tess was our MC and kept the crowd dancing until it was time to clean up and leave the venue we were at. We didn’t just meet a great DJ/MC tandem. We met a wonderful couple who we will remain friends with long after our wedding. We thank God for them!! Tess and Mark, you guys will be doing our next party whatever that may be in the future. To all the readers that are deciding on who to hire for your next function! Hire DJ Rank1, I’ll put my name and reputation on the line.

I booked a DJ for a music showcase who canceled out a week before my event. I got in contacted DJ Lyon Head, Wow not only was he easy to work with, but also a great MC. When he wore his lion mask, it kept the "wall flowers" giggling and loose enough to join in the event. I am glad I found em.

Marvelous! Brian was our DJ for a 50th High School Reunion. He was without question the ultimate DJ in that he was ready before the event started, he played music that fit perfectly for our era and spiced it up with some relatively current toe-tapping tunes. He was pleasantly flexible as well as comfortable and fun to work with. He was very good with and smoothly worked well with relatively difficult individuals. I would not hesitate to call on him first and exclusively for any event. Larre Borel

Well organized, came early, and played great music. I coordinate events and plan dances , but my DJ had to cancel, so Matt came for my 50th. I was nervous, but I did not have to be because he was prepared. Set up was perfect! He brought lights and a fog machine which my guests lived...made us feel young. Matt is reserved in a great way since I wanted it to be about the music. He played my song choices and took requests from my guests. I am very pleased. Matt is a great DJ!! Thanks Matt.

We were very pleased with DJ Katz. Stephen was really good at feeling the vibe of the party and keeping it going. He listened to exactly what we wanted and delivered even more. I would highly recommend him for any occasion that you might have.

DJ Memo was spectacular. Guillermo really understood our goals and vision for the event. He kept the pace we needed and provided the extra energy to draw everyone to the dance floor. Very well organized and a great communicator. I would definitely recommend them as well as use them for our other events.

Great DJ; his music choices were right on for our High School Reunion theme. He is a fantastic performer, sang many songs for us, not just playing CD's. His personality is very pleasant & respectful, our committee was pleased & we had guests ask for contact information! We recommend him & his services as A+!!

Bill was an awesome DJ! He played lots of great music to get our Pretty Muddy women pumped up and he also kept the day flowing nicely! All of the songs seemed carefully chosen and they were all great choices. We definitely are happy with our decision to hire Bill and we are looking forward to working with him in the future!

This DJ was AMAZING!! From the moment we first started talking about services he was extremely responsive and professional! On the day of the wedding he came 2 hours early to get set up and ensure everything was perfect! More than being an DJ playing awesome music, he kept us on track and just took care of us! He made suggestions to shift itinerary items around for a better flow. It worked out really well! He was so nice and came to check on us when we first sat down to eat and asked us what we wanted to drink. He went above and beyond to ensure our night was perfect and we appreciate his wonderful service and the great music that was played! Would hire him again or recommend him in a heartbeat!
