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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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?

Drake was an outstanding DJ and he exceeded our expectations. He is very professional and he gave my son a night to remember. He even allowed him to run his equipment. His cost was the most reasonable than any other DJ that bid for the job. We will hire him again.

DJ Surge DJ'd our school's homecoming and he was absolutely outstanding. Our school has about 2100 students and we had the biggest turnout in at least the past 4 years. The light show was amazing and the students loved the variety of the music and everything. Thank you DJ Surge, we will definitely be using him again!

We hired Matt three weeks before our wedding because our original DJ backed out last minute. Matt worked with us to make sure every detail was exactly what we wanted. He was always very professional and our wedding went off without a single problem! Matt helped organize and run the whole night. He was so flexible and has a great personality. Our guests loved him, we got many compliments about our DJ. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our big day.

DJ AfterBurner was awesome! He did an event for my Martial Arts school and killed it. He did an amazing job with the music, and keeping it pumped while also being kid friendly. He showed up on time and was absolutely professional. Thank you DJ AfterBurner on the behalf of Premier Martial Arts we can't wait to hire you for our next graduation.

My oldest daughter got married last year, we spent $1895 on the Dj, so when it came time to hire a Dj for my wedding we were much more budget conscience. Dj Phantom was awesome, they were very, very resonable. They had lights that we didn't have to pay extra for, and overall they did an outstanding job. Mike and Kyle played my list but they also took requests. Mike MC'd but didn't overdo it. I think we may have been only their 2nd wedding. Great job guys, I would recomend you for anyone looking for great tunes at their event!!! Thank you, Kim and Rachael

Andy did an amazing phenomenal job as our wedding DJ. His professional blew me away from day one. He was responsive and totally took ownership of his responsibilities. He kept track of making the announcements of different events occurring during our wedding and reception but he also gave us great suggestions on music and coordination. He was so much more than just a wedding Dj. Just can’t praise him enough!!!!!

DJ Drake did a great job entertaining a group of 13 year olds for a party. He was easy to work with, on time, helpful and even offered suggestions for dancers that could come and teach dances. His lighting was awesome too! 👍

Chris was the DJ for our Second Grade Dance Party this evening. He was amazing with the kids. The kids especially loved his balloon animals and flowers. He even stayed after the party and taught my girls how to create some of the balloon flowers!

This guy is a total fraud! DJ - B Leary AKA Branden Alexander took a 100$ deposit after we signed a contract and cancelled on us a week before the wedding when we were trying to meet him in person to get things setup. While I am sympathetic to any personal family reasons that caused him to cancel, taking a deposit and ignoring requests to refund is totally unacceptable. I am writing this review as a last resort after having given him several weeks to respond to no avail. He promised to refund the amount but is completely ghosting us. I can see that he is online right now but he just ignores messages on thumbtack, text messages, phonecalls and facebook both on his personal profile and his "professional" DJ page. In retrospect, all I can say is thank God Branden wasn't our DJ at the wedding. What a disaster that would have been. Definitely be VERY LEARY of hiring him for any event! I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND this guy. See attached images for conversations we had with him.

From planning to the final clean up... we could not have asked for a better experience. DJ Collar provided the most amazing soundtrack to our day... and was absolutely amazing with keeping all the events on schedule while providing a perfect environment for our party. He was, without question, the best decision we had made for our wedding reception!

We met Matt more than a year before our wedding and he was very professional, nice and seemed very experienced in his job. He presented himself as more than just a DJ but someone who would go above and beyond in his services to make sure everything ran smoothly and on time. On our first visit he already had a proposed timeline of how things would go. We knew we were going to be in good hands and the price was right. Sadly, we found out 2 weeks before our wedding that a family emergency came up and he wouldn't be available. Thankfully he did arrange for someone from Shindig DJs to fill in. At first it was a horrible experience because 1) we really liked Matt and were really looking forward to working with him and 2) we weren't sure which DJ from Shindig we were going to work with. Luckily everything worked out as I see from other reviews others did not have the same experience we did. Matt did send an email after our wedding date apologizing for not being there which we appreciated. Even though we experienced this, Matt would still be a good choice to go with.

Michael was wonderful to work with from the very beginning and helped our vision of our special day become a reality! We wanted a mix of live guitar, singing and DJ songs played and it all came together as planned. The live guitar and singing was a beautiful touch and Michael even braved the chilly weather with us. Highly recommend this talented musician for your upcoming event!
