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.

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?

Overall the best DJ in all of Orlando! He's very friendly, professional, and knows what he's talking about. He knows how to get things done and will always be in contact with you regarding how you want your events to be. He's the person you'll need for anything. He was there as my DJ for my wedding and I am thoroughly impressed!

We had booked DJ Intel in January for our wedding that was slated to happen in late March. Unfortunately COVID-19 caused local shutdowns that forced us to have to cancel our wedding plans including the DJ and unfortunately we had paid in full back in January. We contacted DJ Intel to request the refundable portion of our payment back, which we were entitled to per the contract, and he promised he would refund it but never actually followed through. As of today 11/10/2020 we have not seen a refund from him after having asked multiple times.

I CANNOT put in to words how amazingly talented DJ BEAM is. I've had my fair share of DJs, but none have measured up to the quality of work and presentation that DJ BEAM did for both my daughter and son's birthday party's this summer. He is very responsive, a breeze to work with, well-versed musically and an amazing live entertainer. EVERYONE at my events raved about how awesome he was, and requested his information. He did a custom entry song for my son's Sesame Street Meets Hip Hop theme that had me in tears! Don't hesitate on this one, you won't regret it.

Neal was amazing. He was well versed in his role, and made life very easy for us. We highly recommend using him! If we ever need a DJ or a band again, he’ll be our first call!
