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.

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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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 Alex was amazing!! He was our DJ/MC for our wedding and it definitely wouldn’t have been the same without him. If you’re thinking about hiring him, just do it!!! We highly recommend him and one of the best part is, his price is very reasonable!!! I’d definitely hire him again if we have another occasion that needs a DJ or MC!

I was in a bind and needed a DJ for a grand opening after finding out 4 days before event one was not hired. Yikes!!! Event was for middle of day and DJ Tony was very professional, punctual, and kept in constant contact with me. He ensured the event was what we needed it to be with music genre, time, even volume when required :) I would definitely work with him again. You can not go wrong with DJ Tony! Mahalo!!

DJ TNT is the real deal. With very little direction, and without a wedding coordinator he came in on time and knocked it out of the park! His prices were more than fair and any question I had before my wedding he answered promptly. Do not hesitate, hire this guy ! #NoDJNoParty

Lewis and his crew did a great job as a dj for us. They were very helpful and responsive to our guest request for music. Lewis was really easy to work with and even started early upon our request. I would definately hire him again and recommend him to family and friends! Thank you Lewis for your hard work!!

I'm an event planner and needed a DJ last minute for my daughter's bday party. My regular contacts were booked and I reached out here. Guess who is now on my preferred list? YES! George! A nice guy with a good set up... house was pumping and kids were having a great time. SO GLAD I took a risk and hired him! THANKS GEORGE FOR MAKING THINGS SO MUCH EASIER! Happy planner and happier momma. 😏

One word "Awesome!". Wendell was prompt, very attentive, played great music, and we'd definitively recommend him and request his dj service for any future events. Our catering service and venue comments were very positive as well "Where did you find him, he plays very good music", "Do you think we can get cards to recommend him" Thank you Wendell you've assisted with making our daughter's quinceanera an event to remember!
