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.

DJ Base was awesome. Very respectful and came ready to work. I used him for my wedding day, and if my wife and I need him for something else in the future I will definitely be booking him for our event. Don’t waste your time looking for another DJ, hire him for your event! Money well spent!

He was able to work last minute at an affordable price after we had a dissagreement with a previous DJ two days before my sister's wedding, I appreciate how compremizing and flixible he was in respecting our traditional guests and do the best he could to work things out with us the way we wanted! He was such a hero =) DJ Mary to the rescue!!!!!

DJ Draztik is not only highly talented he's also skillfully professional. He brought our CrossFit event at CrossFit Frenzy in Bakersfield, to life and was a joy to work with. Can't wait till next year's event.

Although we went in another direction for our event and didn't wind up booking DJ Forgi, he was very professional and responsive to all of our questions. Hopefully we'll have an opportunity to hire him in the future.

Steve was so awesome to work with! His preparation and planning with us before our wedding made us feel so much more comfortable on our special day. He was extremely accommodating, and extremely professional. I would definitely recommend Steve to my SoCal friends when they need a DJ!

Steve did an awesome job with our wedding, he takes that extra time to find out exactly what you want and is very lenient with the schedule. I never realized how much of the time of events is based off of the DJ! He does a great job figuring your sequence of events and gets he crowd involved with fun games and great music.

Brent and Deanna were wonderful to work with. They provided photography and DJ/mc services for our big day. Very professional and always open to our suggestions. The day of our wedding both were very considerate and understanding to all of our wants and even gave suggestions to help keep everything running smoothly! I highly recommend MGH images for your special event.

MGH Images provided DJ services for our Decades Halloween party. Brent called me in advance to ask questions about our gathering so he could be prepared. He arrived early to set up. He did a great job in providing music from all Decades that kept everyone on their feet dancing and having a great time! Everyone's feedback was so positive. I am happy I chose MGHImages!
