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?

Howyi Meekx did an amazing job at our wedding. He was extremely responsive, flexible, and helpful throughout the planning process! I just can't say enough about how satisfied we all are with DJ Howyi Meekx. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish! Invest in Royalty DJ & Entertainment. Howyi also provided all of the sound equipment and support for our vows as we got married. He also provided the lighting and made the room look amazing, changing the colors as the night, and party, grew crazier! I HIGHLY recommend Howyi Meekx at Royalty DJ & Entertainment for your upcoming wedding!!!

I feel very blessed to have found DJ Lumoney & Soundz Unlimited on Thumbtack. He was exactly what we needed while planning our destination wedding for Miami, FL. For example, he was very professional and organized. He was very helpful with helping  my fiance & I come up with songs for different parts of the recepetion. He even helped us with the flow of the reception. Especially being my fiance &I did not know what we were doing.

If you want a DJ and you want the people to enjoy your even this DJ is definitely not it pay the extra and go with someone else I went with him because he had a good price but the choice of music was horrible my guest complained he refused to play any request and claimed it had to be cleared with me the host and at no point did I tell him not to accommodate the request. His equipment is not good quality we had pay extra to have a mic since we were making toast and we had to stand right in front of the dj both which was hidden from the view and we sang to my mom all that had to be done behind her back because we couldn't move too far from the booth and it was a wireless mic. To make matters worst his choice of music was bad and if he offers you a photographer run it's his girlfriend and she is horrible the pictures are bad quality pictures I took from my phone came out better. Buyer beware don't go with this guy if you want your event to have good music.

DJ Iggy was a huge hit with everyone at our condo association, which represents a huge range in age and cultural tastes. He is prom, honest, and a really nice guy. Iggy can really get a party going. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and plan to use him again soon and often!

Fab- u-lous. DJ Curt 151 exceeded my expectations. I was last minute booking his services and didn't have the time to really shop around. When we communicated I told him that I needed him to play to a diverse crowd and I needed a show. And I got both and then some. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs good music, light show, and extreme customer service. He will not disappoint.
