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. 

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?

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.

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.

Rick was our dj for a 7th grade Halloween party that couldn't have gone better. The lights, fog, music and Rick's costume made it an outstanding night for all.

We used ACES DJ service for our wedding. Overall I thought the DJ did good but when my husband and I were going to walk down the aisle, our song was off que. When we went to do our first dance he started playing the wrong song, so my husband had to go tell him that the song wasn't right. He was very punctual and choice of music to mix with ours was good.

Kelly was great to work with. He came to DJ a 50th Birthday party. His setup, lights and sound were awesome. We also rented the photo booth and had a great time. Our only regret was to have rented the booth longer. It was a party to remember!

I cannot say enough how absolutely WONDERFUL it was working with DJ Queen C! I was blown away by their professionalism, helpfulness, and timeliness. Prior to the event they had creative and wonderful ideas that made the total difference in my event. They LISTENED!! I have to say that again, they LISTENED to all of my requirements, and didn't miss a thing! They had all the songs that I asked for and more. They were flexible and fit in impromptu requests. AND THEIR EQUIPMENT!!!! Oh my goodness. They provided lighting and special effects and they made the difference in my party. I will never go to anyone else and I will recommend them to EVERYONE I can. I used them for a private party but I plan to now use them for my business events as well due to their professionalism and just the outright WOW factor. Did I mention they were also very nice and so very helpful? Go with these guys, you will NOT be sorry. Thank you guys so much, you made all the difference and I am grateful! :-)

Mountain event services is the bees knees. After video chatting with them before the wedding we knew we made the right choice. We wanted our wedding to have a 50's vibe. We weren't able to pick enough music and Matt our dj did an amazing job picking out more music to make our day special. My mother and my sister added some activities along the way and he was able to change things up so everything ran smoothly. He even had extra equipment ready when we had to switch things up at the ceremony. He was professional and not over bearing/cheesy (which what I was most scared of) his wife Cassidy was our photo booth attendant. She was adorable. She never once got overwhelmed and she smiled and joked about everyone's pictures with them. The props they brought were perfect and they even had left over supplies for a scrap book for us. I'm so happy about that because I love it and I love there picture they put in there too. Now I'll never forget who helped us achieve the perfect wedding for us. Thank you Matt and Cassidy.
