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 much do DJs charge per hour?

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.

Great working with DJ K. We hired him for a 16th Bday party. Professional and responsive during initial consultation. The kids had a blast with some god dance music. He planned his repertoire based on our initial choice of music and also took requests from the guests to buy and play songs on demand. Thanks DJ K. Had a great time.

DJ K set the mood for our party and pleased a good sized crowd! He started out slow, picked up the beat as the evening progressed and then finished with some really popular and upbeat numbers! overall, very happy and will recommend.

Brandon Rey is a wonderful DJ! He charges at an affordable rate and provides a great service. What's best is that he is willing to play any sort of music if you request it in advance. He also has awesome transitions; I highly recommend him.

We hired Erick to DJ our wedding. Being Latino, it was important to us to find some one who knew about Spanish music and that spoke Spanish themselves. We've been to countless events where it seems that the DJ couldn't speak Spanish and they only knew about one genre of music in Spanish which was usually reggaeton, and let me tell you we do not like reggaeton at all! Erick exceeded our expectations, we got so many compliments on the great music, the dance floor was full for most of the night and he did a great job reading what everyone wanted as far as the style of music that was being played! over all it was a great experience working with him and we would definitely recommend him to any one who wants to make sure everyone dances the night away at their event, Thanks Erick!

Bill Pence is 10 out of 10 INCREDIBLE! Live singer, MC, Timekeeper AND DJ the day of our wedding. From our very first inquiry call to execution day, he was professional and easy to work with. He didn’t have “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran in his repertoire yet but he promised me he could learn it for our first dance and not to worry. I didn’t worry and HE WAS AMAZING!!!!! It’s such a unique aspect to a wedding to have live musicians and our guests kept raving about Bill’s live singing. They. LOVED. it. We also had a big dance floor and he had every inch covered! So talented and so experienced, Bill Pence was really 1 thing I didn’t have to worry about. Planning process: Call and or email. He will answer anything and everything. Response time is always within a few hours if not right away. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Bill has this great planning tool online. The more you fill out, the better he can help execute your vision. Price: Worth every penny and more. For the peace of mind, his experience, professionalism, talent and all-in-one services, I think Bill actually undercharges because he’s doing what he loves. I don’t normally write reviews but you bet I read them and Bill Pence really is as good as what people say. Take the stress out of planning where you can. Bill Pence is a good start.
