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.

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?

Matt DJ'd our wedding this weekend and he was simply amazing through the whole process. Matt is much more than a DJ. He was responsive, provided great suggestions throughout, kept our event on schedule, and made a stressful event planning process fun. We will recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ in the future.

If you need a DJ he is the person for you. He was awesome to work with very organized with what you are looking for and I didn’t really need to do that much he just knew his stuff and would recommend him again so if I do another event he will be the first person I would call. Thank you DJ for you being there for me

We hired SE for a birthday party, and they did a fabulous job. The DJ overcame technical difficulties at the beginning of the event and overcame her stress from dealing with that with flying colors. The mix of music was exactly as we requested, and the music made the night! Stag's DJ did such a great job that the venue requested contact info so they could hire them for different events. Highly recommend!

DJ Chelsea Rebro was Awesome! I will definately plan on using her again for our next party ! Very professional, patient & a very sweet person.

DJ Berry was more than we could have asked for! He went above and beyond to make the best day of our lives truly special! From day one (months before the wedding) he made sure to call and get on the same page from the start. We didn’t make being our DJ easy...we had lots of special requests and we moved our ceremony from inside to outside and he was more than happy to accommodate us. He was the most responsive vendor we had by far. He made sure everyone’s requests were played and kept the fun going the whole time! Also, he asked our wedding colors and made sure he looked as sharply dressed as the wedding party! If you are looking for the best DJ for any event I would 100% recommend DJ Berry! He’s solid gold!

DJ Collar was amazing! We booked him for our company's holiday party this year and had the best experience. Not only was he quick to communicate, friendly, and easy to work with, but he made sure that the music played our event got people on the dance floor. Would highly recommend booking DJ Collar for your next event! I know we wouldn't hesitate in booking him for future events.

Mike did a superb job being our DJ for our wedding on 8/13/22 Had guests comment on his abilities and he really was a team player when I last minute changed things during the ceremony, recognized the break time I actually needed from doing all the “things”. He would definitely hire again should I need a DJ and will recommend when I hear people needing one!

Moshe was fantastic! Everyone at our event had such a good time, and he was very easy to work with-- especially considering I'd never hired a DJ before & didn't really know where to start. I couldn't recommend him enough!
