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.

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?

We had a blast with George as our wedding DJ!! Tons of my guests told me they loved my music which was all him! He took requests from my guests and played them as soon as they fit in the mix! I met with a few DJs before meeting George and I booked him at our first meeting he was so nice and professional! I would recommend JME to anyone and everyone looking for a DJ that will guarantee them a great time :)

First off, i wanted to say DJ Dave is the best and a great person all around. Needed a Dj for only 3 hours for a grad party and price was definitely affordable compared to many others that had quoted me. He is very flexible with everything and very professional. He came early and even set up early to make sure everything was ready to go. The party went great and he actually got my family to dance almost the whole night which was a surprise! The light show was also very fun to enjoy when it became dark! there was also not a single technical or any kind of problem the entire night. I recommend him to anybody for ANY occasion. Great outgoing personality and a very trustworthy & respectful person .You will NOT regret it !!! Thank you DJ Dave!!!

Mr. Bill Pence was wonderful! He did such a fabulous job at out wedding. He really went above and beyond our expectations. We asked him to play funk, oldies, and Christian music and he really hit the nail on the head with everything! He kept the guests engaged and I absolutely loved his choices in songs. He asked us for the specific songs for our wedding and other than that, we did not have to do anything. He took care of everything and it was one less thing for us to worry about. He really knows what he is doing. We are so very happy that we chose Mr. Pence to DJ at our wedding. Not to mention the fact that he went out of his way to come to work with us and make it to our wedding. Thank you, Bill! We are forever grateful! -Bryan and Rosie Banford
