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.

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

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.

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?

Deverin DJed our wedding on 10/29/16. He did a fantastic job! Every song we sent him prior to the wedding to played was in his set. Any requests from the guests were played unless they were on our do not play list :) If you need an awesome DJ on a budget look no further! I will recommend him to any friends looking for a DJ for their wedding. Thanks again Deverin!

He was able to dj my daughters sweet 16 last minute after our family friend was no longer able to. He was able to download and play songs for her that she specifically asked for. He was great with the younger kids as well. My daughter and our guests all had a great time at her party. He truely saved the day. I will definitely be hiring him again in the future. I can’t say enough good things about him. If you are looking for a great dj look no further.

Amy did an amazing job dj-ing my wedding. We had a lot of strange and specific song selections, and she did her best to accommodate our requests as well as our guests. Everyone was dancing, and when they slowed down, she found the right song to get them going again. She was also extremely nice and flexible even when our venue was giving us issues. If I ever needed another dj in the area, I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She was professional, organized, and friendly. Thank you so much Amy! Chuck&Jillian

We hired Deverin to DJ/MC our outdoors event this past weekend and we're glad we did so. Deverin was great to work with and we will happily hire him again if we ever have another event like this. He was on time, had everything prepared, played a variety of music, and made some funny commentary to loosen up the crowd. He was very professional and got along with everyone. We have absolutely no complaints with our experience. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Deverin for your DJ/MC needs! Deverin—Thanks for coming out and showing us and our guests a good time! We appreciate your work!

DJ's Nathan and Isaiah did a great job with my son's Bar Mitzvah party. The kids were entertained with games and music the whole time, and the adults were able to hear each other speak. Nathan wrote and performed an awesome personalized "rap" to introduce my son--well done.

We hired Big Al Karpo as the DJ for our wedding reception. He was easy to work with and very fair in pricing. Al made sure that our guests had a great time. By all of the compliments that we received on our selection entertainment for the evening, I am sure that our guests thought that we paid a great deal more than we did. Al was the best choice that we could have made for our event.

DJ Reese was professional and so friendly when working out the details for my very short notice wedding. He showed up and had the party and dancing going until it was time to leave the venue. He made our wedding day so stress free and so much fun. THANK YOU for everything, you can’t go wrong with hiring him. 10/10 would hire again and recommend to anybody wanting to have a good time.
