Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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?

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 Vic was awesome!! We had talked on the phone a few times prior to the wedding and went through the whole schedule of the wedding. With no in person rehearsal he was spot on with everything and made our special day so perfect! We hope to use you again with any future events!

If you’re looking for an amazing DJ service, look no further. We had Ed come out to our house for a Halloween party, and he did an amazing job. He was on time, courteous, attentive to the parties needs, and overall did a great job of fulfilling all my “asks”. I would highly recommend his service. Everyone loved his photo booth too, and the lighting that he did at the party made it look like a huge club in my backyard. Truly a phenomenal job!!

We hired Jimmy Jam for our Daughters 13 birthday party. I was just looking for price and he had the best price but he took the time to contact me and go over the girls music list, using clean versions only. I can't begain to say perfect the night was music never stoped! arrived early set up and tore down with out a trace that he was ever there. I guess the best review I could give would be that we are already booking him for a 8th grade graduation and my daughter has asked that we use him for her Quinceanera and of course we will it's not often your are as lucky as we were in finding a great price and above excellent service Jimmy Jam will be our go to guy for all our DJ events Teresa Acosta
