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.

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

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 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.

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?

Im planning a wedding in a very short period of time and trying to book vendors asap. Andy was one of the first to respond to my request for a DJ. I did not want to come up with a play list for my wedding. The idea of that was stressful. Andy in his professional experience knew exactly the kind of music I would need and made picking a play list simple. After speaking with him over the phone I felt 100% comfortable and confident in hiring him as our DJ.

DJ Arly exceed my expectations, he DJ'd for my daughter's sweet 16 and there was never a dull moment. Guests absolutely loved the music and the atmosphere was amazing. Definitely recommend him for your next event.

The DJ is a nice person but it was pretty universal from all my guests that the performance was subpar. A lot of dead air, very awkward transitions, the non requested songs he played were dated to say the least and in very poor taste. He did not have very good situational awareness as he stood directly in front of my stationary camera so now for the rest of my life for there will be no video coverage of my vow exchange. I paid for two stations to be set up but he can only connect to one at a time so half the wedding party had to stand around in silence. I spoke to every guest and even with a weather delay the only complaint I had all night was about the DJ. As a person he did not seem bad but as a DJ he left much to be desired. I am sure in time he can work through these issues and may one day be a really good DJ. He did a great job finding obscure songs that I requested so I would have to say that is one positive but if I had the chance I would have let him cut his teeth elsewhere. Maybe great for parties but I would not recommend for once in a lifetime events like weddings.

Sammy was fabulous and the party was a great success. From our first contact Sammy was responsive and we were always in communication throughout the process. We provided a song list and he shuffled the songs perfectly. If you are looking for a great DJ Sammy is your guu.

Dennis was the perfect DJ for our work party. He showed up on time with everything he needed, and played the right assortment of music to appeal to mixed tastes. He was very responsive when we needed the mic for announcements and had nice background music. I would definitely use him again.

DJ Rodolpho was exceptional. We hired him for our daughter's end of the school year party. 30 5th graders!! He was able to turn our livingroom into a kids club with special effects, video and lights. He seemed to know exactly the songs the kids wanted. E is great and I am sure will make any party an event to be remembered!!!!!

Dan and Allie were everything you'd want in DJs. They were friendly, punctual, professional and very easy to work with. Dan was easy to contact and was quick to answer all my questions. I made the list of music and they played it. All my guests had a great time at the party thanks to Dan and Allie. He was a wonderful MC as well. I'd definitely hire them again and again and again.

MJ was a phenomenal DJ at our wedding! He was very professional in our conversations with us, came early to get set up, and honored all our requests. We gave him a list of songs we wanted played. Not only did he play each song at the right time, but he filled up the space with other songs that were within our and our guests' like. He definitely knew how to keep the party going. Everyone at our wedding, young and old, had a lot of fun! We highly recommend MJ!
