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.

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.

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?

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.

Eric is a great DJ, he listened to what we wanted for our wedding and delivered! I love that he offers videography for your reception....I can't wait to receive our video so we can relive our special day. I totally recommend Eric at Nuricproductions, and if I ever need a DJ again I will be calling upon his services again. Thank you!!

Enough can't be said about David Turner-he was such a wonderful addition to our special day. All though the planning process he was a delight to work with-making special exceptions for our way of doing things that went against the norm. He was incredibly punctual and responsive. On the big day, he was exactly how you'd hope a DJ would be. So many wedding DJs can be a little funny or odd, but David was unbelievably professional and smooth in all his deliveries. I had so many attendees mention how lovely the music was! I really can't say enough about how wonderful he was! If you're looking for a wedding DJ, look no further!!! Book David NOW!!

DJ Ken was AMAZING. My wife and I took immediate comfort with him when we first met, and his wedding outline was impressively detailed. He helped us select last minute songs, and even added some changes we requested the day of the wedding. I had countless people tell me how much they enjoyed his work. Incredible DJ! I want to throw a party just to hang out with him again!

This was not an easy job. We had 700+ people attend our corporate this past Saturday. There were all ages at the picnic. The DJ did an excellent job of accommodating the varied taste in music. He also stayed engaged with the audience throughout the entire event. Very professional and easy to work with.

Love, Love, LOVE the DJ services. Evence was beyond what I expected last night. He really kept the party going, and everyone... I mean EVERYONE was dancing. From the youngest to the eldest, and even the catering staff, everyone enjoyed the music. So happy that we hired this group to do the Birthday party. Definitely looking forward to having them at our next event. Highly recommended.

He was absolutely great. What a wonderful personality. It shows how he truly enjoys what he is doing it is not just a job. Showed up on time kept me informed as to times he would arrive. He made sure my party was a success as he promised. Many of my guest all gave compliments on him. I know, he will certainly be back in Bradenton. He got out there with my guest and danced which made others get out there and dance. He is very reasonably priced which helps people to be able to have DJ`S. I hope he will be available when we call next time. Thank You so very much.

Armando: Professional from the introduction to the end of the event. He captured our ideas, developed the event plan, and executed the entertainment from the arrival of guests with background classical music to the energetic dancing with current top chart hits. Armando obtained and played all of our requested genres and specific song titles. The music and special effect lighting synced with spectacular displays on and around the dance area and the sound system was perfectly monitored to meet the event location and timeframe of event. Armando provided master of ceremonies service in addition to "dj" for our daughter's semi-formal birthday celebration at our personal residence. Armando was professional in both appearance and attire, as well as his vocal presentational style. He graciously adjusted the plan of the event as activities changed, which demonstrates his flexibility in keeping with meeting the customer's requirements. Armando kept open communication throughout the planning process, arrived early to setup and test his systems, provided flawless event entertainment, impressed teenagers (now that's worthy of an award) and adults with the energy of the music and special effects. High Five!
