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.

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.

DJ Charlie did an amazing job for my brother's wedding! He was professional, punctual, and very easy to work with. He made it very easy to plan the music timeline for the wedding by offering examples and suggestions as well. It was nice to know that anytime I needed to make a change or had a question, a quick phone call or email and Carlos would be there with the answer. The lighting at the wedding was beautiful and the music kept everyone dancing. My brother and his wife were thrilled with their wedding and we were very happy with DJ Charlie's performance.

First and foremost I would like to say DJ Del is the best DJ I have ever hired. He was able to accommodate our wedding budget and delivered all items as promised. He provided lighting and music for my wedding reception, music for my cocktail hour, and emceed the entire reception. He kept the evening moving right along, there wasn't any down time and most importantly he stayed on time. Included in his pricing was also music for the ceremony, but we did not need his services for that part. DJ Del was also kind enough to provide a mashup song, composed of 4 different songs for our first dance (at no additional charge). Del was always accessible via phone and email, with rapid responses. His communication was bar none. He arrived 2.5 hours before the ceremony and was all set up. He was always very punctual. Last but not least, he kept the party going by playing all music as requested and even throwing in his own mixes, which all of our guests really enjoyed. I will not hesitate to hired DJ Del for any future gatherings.

Del was hired to DJ for my daughter's wedding and I can not say enough about him. I would recommend him to anyone. He was professional, personable, listened to what you want. If you are looking for a DJ for any event you absolutely could not go wrong! He put together a slide show as well from pictures we provided and the way he put that together was another reason we felt so blessed to have found him. I do not feel you could find anyone in the industry to top Del.

DJ SG did an amazing job at our wedding and kept the dance floor popping. He catered to our needs and made sure to play music that was fun but clean since we had kids at the wedding. He’s very accommodating and humble. He’ll work with you to make yoinks event perfect! Highly recommend!

I hired DJ Zuni for my daughters sweet 16 party. He was amazing. The kids dance from the moment he started the music until the party ended. He played the perfect music and even took a few request which the kids loved. I’d hire him again. And I’ve already recommended him to friends.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Louis as our DJ for our wedding on June 29th. WE CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GREAT THINGS ABOUT HIM! Louis was great at communicating with us from the start and made sure that he was able to get an accurate depiction of what we wanted our night to look like. When our special day finally came he arrived not only on time, but earlier than was expected of him to ensure that everything was set up perfectly for a smooth ceremony and reception. Louis was the best DJ and MC and when it was time to get the party started, he knew exactly how to get everyone on the dance floor. My friends and family are still raving about him three weeks later! He played a huge role in making our wedding day THE BEST DAY EVER! We will definitely be giving him a call for future events! Thank you Louis!

ERIK WAS OUTSTANDING!!! You can hire him & have every confidence he WILL make your party successful! Erik arrived ahead of time, set up perfectly and definitely made our school Halloween Festival a huge success. He continually interacted with his audience and we had more kids dancing than any other DJ we've ever had. Erik reads his audience well and plays the appropriate music based on either that evaluation or whatever you prefer. He asks for requests & actually plays them! He was very nice and a pleasure to work with. He was also very timely providing all paperwork needed to satisfy Calif. PTA requirements for insurance, etc. He is a wonderful communicator! We will have DJ Richterscale back-- without hesitation! I am thrilled to provide Erik with a raving recommendation! Sincerely, Kris Rowan ~ PTA President at Jackson Elementary, Temecula, CA

Erik was a phenomenal DJ at our wedding reception. We had some unforeseen circumstances hit which delayed our schedule a bit. Erik was able to think quick and host an interactive game with the audience, which gave the food staff enough time to prep and serve. He was professional to work with in all aspects and I would highly recommend. Terrific job emceeing our reception. Thank you Erik.

David is a really good DJ!!! He charges at a reasonable price and arrived on time. He did exactly as to what we asked for! I highly recommend him!! He helped us on picking songs for our wedding, and to top it off we changed majority of music last minute and he was able to accommodate to the changes!! We probably gave him a headache but he truly did the best even with our crazy changes!!

Erik is amazing! Such a professional and knowledgeable in every way. Talking to him a few days before our wedding really helped to calm me down. I knew he had it under control and I was not disappointed! He kept our party going, he's a tiny bit more expensive than other DJs around but he is worth every penny! If I had to do it all over I'd hire Erik again in a heartbeat!

Prince was GREAT! My daughter (The Birthday Girl "21"!) is now a follower of Prince. Everyone liked him. I provided a list of songs and artists that I pretty much had an idea, everyone liked to listen to, and he came out with an awesome mix. He had everyone dancing and that's what I wanted to see, everyone dancing and having a good time. He played for six hours, and his price was nothing to sweat about. Prince, my daughter and I just want to thank you for doing such an awesome job! Her party was a succusses! If anyone needs a DJ, get this guy Prince! P.S. He's just the sweetest guy!

Kris was amazing to work with! He was so flexible when the location of our reception was changed due to weather complications. He responded quickly to all of our emails and made sure to cater to all of our specific music requests. He was very personable, approachable and professional. Many of our guests expressed how great the DJ was throughout the night. His positive, proficient attitude allowed us to feel more comfortable, and, after our first meeting, we were confident that we could trust him to create a naturally fun and upbeat environment. Guests who I thought I would never see dance were out on the dance floor having a blast! We definitely recommend him, and we would love to work with him again in the future!
