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?

DJ Jam Master Jay provided exactly what we requested for our elementary school Valentine's Dance. We wanted the crowd to enjoy the music, but all songs had to be clean (no profanity or sexual innuendos). Parents were present, and the DJ offered a variety of music types to appeal to them as well. Our families enjoyed the line dancing, musical chairs, limbo, and interaction between the DJ and the crowd.

DJ Neal was amazing! Aside from being a DJ/MC, he was also taking great action photos and making sure my husband and I actually ate at our reception! He listened to all of our music requests and made sure to finish the song in its entirety before starting another one (which was one of our major requests). I would not hesitate to recommend DJ Neal for anything!

DJ Juanton was great! He arrived early to set up, he was fast and ready to go, did a 3-hour party for high schoolers, and the kids were thrilled. They danced, and we all celebrated. Thanks DJ Juanton for making our party a success!

Don’t look any further because Dj Neal is the best! He is more than just a Dj, he is there for whatever you need without any hesitation. He made sure my wedding ran smoothly and that everything was taken care of. He didn’t let myself or my husband lift a finger.

DJ Wikked was the best DJ hire I could ever wish for our wedding. Easy to communicate with, responsive to all my inquiries and after I sent him the playlist he for sure went through it and played all songs through out the wedding in appropriate time. We all danced like never before!

I will never use this DJ again, I can't remember if I left a review already, but here goes...the DJ that I met with and gave all the information to was not the one that showed up to my wedding to play music, the one that did show up was pretty good, but before the wedding I was having problems with the music for the dance my sister's and I were going to do, the person I was sending information to wasn't getting it right then finally when I thought everything was worked out, the day of my wedding a different DJ showed up and was asking all types of questions that was already talked about, like what to play for the dance and what to play when the wedding party came in, after the wedding I got in touch with the person who was supposed to be the boss and told him all the problems I was having with communication with the DJ in regards to the songs I wanted played and about how even after I provided all the mucis to the DJ he still could not get it right, the boss was very unprofessional saying that it was my fault that my music wasn't right...I would not recommend nor would I use this dj again..if I could I'd give them no stars...
