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 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 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.

Reviews for South Lake Tahoe djs

I hired Justin for my wedding in Tahoe. The party was around 35 people and I was nervous the party would end early because of the small amount of attendees. However, that was not the case. Justin kept the party going and met all my request. I was more than happy with the DJ services that were provided and I would definitely recommend him for future events/weddings.

I can not say enough good things about DJ Mike and Gloria. Our wedding wasn’t large but they made it so much fun and they kept the pace moving flawlessly. And the up lighting they provided was such a wonderful touch. Don’t second guess hiring them. You will not be disappointed I promise. Thank you both again for making my wedding day so wonderful and fun

We hired Jamie for our wedding in South Lake Tahoe. He did a great job as DJ, as did his colleague who ran the photo booth. Jamie is very organized- he provides detailed worksheets for you to fill out regarding music to play and timeline/announcements. He also communicates well with both us and our wedding coordinator. Most importantly, he kept the party going. His rates are also an outstanding value for the services he provides. A+

We just had our wedding in beautiful Lake Tahoe! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ/MC! Bill was absolutely outstanding, kept the flow of our wedding running smoothly, played all things we requested and stayed away from all things we requested not to hear. We couldn't have been more thrilled with his services and would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding with good vibes, lots of love and lots of soul. Thank you again bill! Without you our day wouldn't have been possible (or nearly as fun!)!! - Jen and Justin
