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.

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?

DJ Ash came ahead of DJ time, brought the necessary lighting, the right music, and all his equipment. During the DJ session, he rocked the place with lighting and music. I would say he has been the best for us, and we plan to use him next year too!

I’m so glad we found Tuese (DJ 2e) for my son’s bar mitzvah party!!! He is a brilliant DJ and a very nice person to work with!!! I was searching for the right DJ for quite some time, but after talking to Tuese I knew this was the right person and in retrospective I’m so glad he was our DJ and MC! He was first to respond to me on thumbtack and his offer was very competitive both from the price and the value proposition standpoints. Throughout event preparations, DJ 2e was very helpful, responsive, professional and easy to work with. He guided us, asked right questions, listened and incorporated our wishes so we had a very solid plan going into the event and he executed it seamlessly. Needless to say that he was on time, very attentive, feeling the crowd and a fun spirit! In addition to managing music, DJ 2e was announcing staff, handling games and managing karaoke!!!! As the result our party was a blast, the dance floor was full thought the event and there was not a doll moment. Many guests were asking me about our DJ and complimenting on a super fun party!!! DJ 2e even managed to take and compile a fun video of the event afterwards! I think DJ 2e is a real find and warmly recommend him!

He was great! The original dj had to have someone fill in for him, but they were more than willing to work with us. They were also kind enough to keep playing music until everyone left.

I thought this was going to be a lot of work to find a good DJ for my 40th Reunion. But with Thumbtack and Charles Bells professional attitude, I decided to hire Charles for our Woodside High School of 1976 40th Reunion. Thanks, Ron Gilbert

Tuese deejayed a corporate event I hosted and it was great! I was most impressed with his ability to read the room and play songs everyone liked. He was very professional and friendly. I will definitely hire him again should I need a DJ for any event.

Maximus is the only DJ you will ever need in your contacts. We booked him for our 120 person 10th anniversary party/son's 5th birthday and he managed to get Everyone dancing, from 4 year olds to grandparents in their kid sixties. He is super friendly, the consummate professional, and his lighting rig is out of this world (everything you've ever wanted out of party lights AND a bubble machine? Mind: Blown), and he even took requests. I will be booking him for any future events we have that require a DJ. Make sure to grab a few of his business cards too, because friends will ask about him. Thank you for an unforgettable night!

I provided a list of artist that was referred but not limited to those artist. Maximus covered all bases with his selection. He supported any request we made. I received a lot of feedback from my guest stating how much they enjoyed the DJ. Very professional and I would recommend to others

Tuese was the absolutely best DJ we could ever imagine. We hired him for my wife’s milestone birthday and he made the party. Not only working with us on the right playlist beforehand but judging the best songs and volume at the right times and even singing an original version of the birthday song to a very happy birthday girl (he has a great singing voice!). We’re so pleased that we found Tuese on Thumbtack and would recommend him for any party.
