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.

Maurice AKA DJ Kutmaster was the best dj we could have ever asked for! He played songs that kept everybody on the dance floor at my wedding reception all night long at the Modern Maturity Center..there was never a non stop moment...He is also a great MC and added a wonderful sense of humor with his announcements of the garter toss, bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc... Our guests LOVED him. He played every song requested, but with his own dj style he played and mixed all the songs we wanted to hear anyway..While our guests were enjoying appetizers, Maurice went over our introductions before we came in. My children planned to dance into the reception on their intro and they did well, but my husband and I didn't plan anything..Maurice said he would find something to bump for us and to go with it..No time to rehearse, but that was the best thing because we had the whole place in an uproar!! Then we went into our first dance without a hitch..Maurice thank you for going over and above the whole night..you took our event go smoothly all night long..God Bless you in everything you do. I will always recommend you and use you again without hesitation!!!!
