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?

In order to have a successful wedding, a need that can't be compromised is having a excellent DJ. It can be a disaster if you don't. DJ Intel we are proud to say DOES NOT fall in that category. DJ Intel has the uncanny ability to cater to a crowd, knowing what to play and when to play it. He is also has a great personality that gleams thru with his hosting skills and he even danced with our guests! Don't look any further when shopping around for a DJ. He is the best option available. -Austin and Donna Bonner

If you are looking for a prolific DJ to host parties, weddings and the like, DJ Rodney should be apart of the conversation. Played at some of our properties and the feedback was great. He is adaptable, punctual and very responsive, you would not be disappointed in hiring him.

Harry showed up early to make sure he was set up and ready to play for our wedding which we greatly appreciated! He accommodated last minute needs, such as playing for a split outdoor ceremony, and staying past the original contract time. Extremely nice and flexible DJ that is eager to please his customers. I would recommend Harry for any event that a DJ is required.

DJ Kenwa was beyond awesome! He arrived at our wedding venue early to setup. He helped guide our guests and to keep the party going. Our wedding ended up being small due to covid, but that didn’t stop DJ Kenwa from getting people on the dance floor. Played a great mix of music all night long. The lighting setup looked great, along with the custom monogram projection and photo booth setup. He even made a custom frame for our digital photo booth that matched our color scheme. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ, which is super important for a wedding!

Harry Wright is the best Professional DJ I have encountered in years. He will custom tailor your music and even make on the spot requests. He performed at the Magnolia Room Town Center of The Pelican Preserve in Ft Myers, Fl. and the crowd loved him. The occasion was my son's wedding reception and he played four hours non stop and was the master of ceremonies. He was set up one hour before the reception and had top of the line equipment. I would recommend Harry Wright to anyone wanting a professional to insure their party is a success. He makes the party and his price is very, very reasonable. For a great event you need the Wright DJ. Colonel James R. Bolla, (USA) (RET)

This was our first experience hiring a DJ for this yearly pool party for 11th grade students in the IB program and I am so pleased to have found Miguel!! His experience working with kids was obvious and he went the extra mile to ensure they all had an amazing time! We will be using Miguel for all parties in the future!

We hired him for our first teen club night at extreme air sports gymnastics and he did an AMAZING job, really couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and time. I’m SO glad it was him who we had for the event. His services were great, he responded right away, and he was very kind and professional 10/10

I am so glad to have found DJ Wanda. She was such a pleasure to work with for a New Year's Eve party. She asked all of the right questions and intuitively created an atmosphere playing all the right music to keep everyone engaged and having a great time. I highly recommend Wanda for any occasion as she is genuinely a professional at what she does!
