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.

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?

Our event attendance was not what we hoped but DJ Queen C still rocked the house. She was very responsive to any volume requests, had incredible set up with lights that did not require a drop box and easy to work with. Would recommend.

Our DJ "Moose" was great with the kids and adults alike. We had a lip sync battle for the crowd, and he did a great job of transitioning the groups. He played a wide variety of music all night. He was very professional and fun, all at a great price.

Drake was the DJ for our reception at the Ballroom at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center. He did a phenomenal job! Through the entire process he was very organized, professional, fun, and friendly. Our reception was on a Sunday afternoon so we were worried it would be hard to get people to dance but he kept our dance floor full the entire time and we didn't want to leave our reception it was so fun! I would hire him again in an instant. We got quotes from other DJs as well and Drake was the most reasonably price. Use him for your wedding or event! You won't regret it.

I don’t even know what to say. Both Queen C and her husband were amazing. I felt so communicated with and they ran my wedding so smoothly. They helped so much on the front end and handled anything I threw at them. They were available whenever I needed them during the planning process and they were the best price out there. Do yourself a favor and stop looking for your wedding DJ, they’re it!

We hired DJ Ron Perry for our New Year's Eve party at Del Frisco's. What an amazing time we had! He showed up early to get set up, dressed professionally, and was extremely well prepared. We wanted a slow start to the evening while people were getting settled in and have it pick up more as people showed up. He executed it perfectly! Guests loved his energy. From start to finish he was really helpful. Can't wait to use him again for our next event! Thank you Ron

We threw a SURPRISE 60th for a good friend and Matt was our DJ and kept over 70 of us entertained all night long with excellent choices for both early listening and then late night dancing. He is extremely professional with his appearance and his set up is top notch. He took lots of time with us in advance of the party to get an idea of favorite songs, and then combined that with even better selections of his own that fit in very nicely. The name of his company fits him to a tee: Total Performance Entertainment. We really loved him!
