Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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.

Great DJ -- Hired him for New Year's Eve and will hire him again in an instant. He took all out play list suggestions and integrated them into a great mix for us. Everyone was dancing. He was early to set up and stayed later than asked for. He brought a great set up and was truely professional and very persoanble. Five stars.

Prince William is A-1! His music set had us going the entire time. He provided our event with a variety of music from all genres and time periods and even found songs that worked in the bicycle theme for our event. He is professional and brings a professional air to his work in the field and behind the scenes. I would DEFINITELY recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent DJ for their event.

DJ T-Roc truly helped make our wedding one for the ages! He was so easy to work with, responsive and set the vibe for the night. He understood all the music requests we made and was able to really gauge the crowd response and adjust throughout the night. We sent him music in the month or so leading up to our wedding and even last minute playlists and requests. He didn’t just play songs randomly, he mixed songs, transitioned and worked the crowd. He answered all questions timely and ensured he was onsite and setup early. We had the best energy for our introduction as a married couple, the dance floor was packed and everyone had a wonderful experience they will cherish forever. He got people out of their seats and every stage of the wedding was entertaining! We had numerous speeches, two people who performed songs (he was able to introduce each one, play custom background music, etc) and it was seamlessly done. One song was a surprise for the bride and everything went off without a hitch. Sound check was done early and he left nothing to chance and worked with the coordinator to ensure timing of the event was on track and kept pace. The party never stopped and the mood was all love and high energy all night. We would highly recommend T-Roc and do not hesitate to use him for your special event. He’s the highest rated DJ on Thumbtack for a reason!
