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 Afterburner was incredibly responsive and entertained our crowd for a father/daughter dance at our elementary school. I would definitely hire him again! He also surprised our crowd with a hidden talent and kept the party going!

DJ EJ (Geno) kept the celebration moving. We danced, sang and partied hardy. He was great at taking request, and making announcements. EJ is very professional, and seemed to be genuinely happy for us and our special day (we were married). Thanks Geno.

Matt is the BEST DJ!! The party for my sister was amazing because of his skills. He played great music, was very organized, social and got the crowd engaged. Matt helped us with everything and when we weren't organized he jumped in to help get us there. He is professional and fun!!! I will recommend him to everyone! !!

I've met with Sergio and I would have to say I'm very impressed and also very satisfied with him. He understands my needs and wants and is willing to go above and beyond to make sure my day comes the way I want it. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DJ. Reasonable price and also very relaxed.

What an awesome experience! First off he was quick to respond to my message. From there he was professional and always communicated in a timely manner. He was adaptable to my needs and was very punctual and prepared. I grand opened a gym and his music was perfect to keep everyone energized! His prices also top everyone else. Definitely the best DJ on this site!

Matt was a pleasure to work with. He was easy to communicate with, and answered emails quickly and professionally. He found the right balance of music for a corporate holiday party, which included guests from the office and production floor from different backgrounds and demographics. Matt even matched the color of his shirt to our logo's. It's the little thing that not everyone might notice, but that do make a difference between a good party and a great party. He was flexible and handled last-minute changes and requests well. He kept a close eye on the schedule for me, and made sure that the timing of music and events worked well with the flow of the party. Matt brought his own equipment, quickly set up everything, and was ready to go when the guests arrived. From the choice of songs to the quality of the sound and light effects, everything was top-notch. Matt's the kind of DJ that will make your event a success (and a fun party!), without stealing the show. He knows what's appropriate, has a great attitude, and gives valuable recommendations. I'd say he can be an asset for any event planner.
