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 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?
Reviews for Westminster djs

Armando was a great DJ for my wedding. He was very flexible with some last minute changes. The music played non-stop and he didn't even take a break! He took requests and was very accommodating to my guests. He is also just a very nice guy! I highly recommend Armando if you need a DJ!

Even though I considered DJs that probably had more experience for my wedding, DJ Klasick is on par with them and went beyond my expectations. He provided uplights (spotlights, pinspot lights, and a smoke machine if you ask nicely), visited our venue well ahead of the date, and downloaded last minute song requests the night before, which are just a few examples why he's fantastic. He dressed to the occasion, went early to setup, and was very thorough going over the itinerary so that everything ran smoothly. I was able to spend more time with my guests rather than worrying about the music. You could tell he is passionate, and we recommend anyone considering his services without reservations. Thanks DJ Klasick!

It's unbelievable what an outstanding job they did! And on an extremely short notice! I hired them two days before my wedding, and they were absolutely wonderful! And, they are compassionate and sympathetic to their customer's financial situations, as well. If I could, I would easily pay them twice as much as what they are charging me for their services! Great DJ's and wonderful human beings, both of them! Thanks guys, for everything you did to make it as special as you possibly could for me!

Armando had done an excellent job in my son's wedding reception as a DJ and MC. He is very professional, beside providing consultation before the event, he had emailed us with useful suggestions of how to run the slide show. He was prompt and never took a break, the music keep playing until the very end. He was quick to make changes as our program was running late. He is a great MC, keeping everyone in a party mood. The night ran seamless. I highly recommend Armando for his skills and professionalism. He is reasonably priced and on top of it, a very nice person.

We were overall very pleased with the DJ services we got from Derain. Fair price, and he has a great personality. We were able to request songs, as well as nix songs on his easy to use web site. We also had several of our guests mention to us they liked his music selections, personality and how he kept the party upbeat and interesting. He helped me (the bride) perfectly execute a planned-in-advance surprise for the groom; and helped the groom with his last minute not-at-all planned surprise for the bride! He had several fun games he brought to the table for times when people were not dancing. When people stopped dancing and started leaving, he tried to do all he could to keep the party going and moving. The only reason not 5 stars is because he did forget to give away the centerpieces as we requested, and forgot to do a generation dance we wanted. Also, our favors were near the door, but not in plain view, so we asked him to announce the favors were there, and he forgot that also. (After we told him, he did announce it several times after that). It was nothing that ruined the day or was a major disappointment.
