Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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?

DJ Yves was well received by everyone in the company and many individuals inquired for his contact information afterwards. Photo booth was the most fun of everything we planned.

We hired DJ Yves last minute for our wedding celebration. He was very accommodating as we had to change our start time the day before the event, he also ended up staying an additional 3 hours longer as the party kept going. He had a great music selection and awesome karaoke setup. We will definitely be using DJ Yves for our next party in July!!

As someone that worked in the radio industry for ten years, I've had a lot of experience with different types of DJs, but this one takes the cake! DJ Yves arrived 10 minutes prior to our Halloween party, when he told me he would be there at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the party. Once he started setting up (he began complaining it was hot) Yes, the party was on our patio but complaining? Really!? I did have to set him up with a fan. He then asked me if I had a table for him to use to set up his equipment. I asked him, wasn't that DJ 101 to have a table yourself to set up equipment? I had to set him up on our dinning table, not too happy about that. After he set up, about 45 minutes later he told me he had to leave to drop off some cables to his other DJ working that night. He didn't return for over an hour and 15 minutes. I paid him in full but he knew I wasn't happy about his service at all. I would not recommend DJ Yves, especially for the price he charged us. Our bartender we hired through Thumbtack was 10 times better and 1/3 the price. She even came in a costume, something else he didn't do.

DJ Yves was incredibly easy to work with, providing DJ services and PhotoBooth. He was very responsive via text to my questions. He and Shan showed up with extra time to set up for the event. Everything went smoothly from start to finish.. They made the “Dancing through the Decades” birthday party for my 17 year old daughter a huge success.. The vibe created with lighting was perfect. The kids danced the night away. Both Shan and Yves have wonderful energy. Shan even helped my daughter’s friend that has locked her keys in the car.

DJ for the Candlelight Shopping event in Downtown Melbourne. Great job! Reliable, professional and affordable... showed up on time, set up as discussed and planned ahead of time, played the agreed upon music, and had a great selection. Dave is a positive guy, with a great attitude and personality! Will definitely call him again.

Ric went over and beyond to provide a positive environment to the guests and volunteers at the event . I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ , he was on time , played amazing songs and my guests are still talking about what an awesome time they have . I will definitely use Ric for my next event . Also I can’t go without thanking his assistant that he brought to the event with him . I’m sorry I forgot his name however he brought just a positive energy to the event ❤️ Thank you a million times guys , you are the BEST 🙂

I just want to share that a week after the wedding we are still getting amazing responses from everyone about the music and I am forever in your debt for the way you kept everything flowing so seamlessly that it appeared effortless! (and I'm a perfectionist!) With a blended family I realize it could be difficult but the Spanish songs you selected were perfect and very much appreciated. You nailed it and I/we could not be happier if we'd won the lottery.... Okay, so we won "the best, most understanding, most organized, hardest working DJ ever" lottery!!! Just know that you are on the top of my list for referrals for eternity! JT Gannon, mother of the Bride

I hired Brett to MC and DJ my wife's surprise 50th Birthday party last Saturday. From the start of the process Brett was very professional and took the time to understand what I wanted for the party, from the music selection, lighting options and his role in the event. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed on what he needed from me and what I could expect from him and never left me hanging. He always retuned my phone calls or emails promptly and took the time to explain in detail how he planned to support the evening's party (had a written timeline that he used to ensure everything we had planned went off without a hitch. His music selection is excellent for all types of events based on what he shared with me. For my event he made sure to play all the songs that I wanted him to play at the party and really got everyone up and dancing and having a great time. Brett also did a great job as MC. He kept everyone informed on what was going on during the party and took charge keeping all my guests engaged and having fun which really made my job as host a lot easier. Everything went very smoothly I couldn't have been any happier with His performance. Brett even came prepared to handle something I forgot to tell him in our planning and had the fix handy and my guests were none the wiser. Brett was also there with his wife which was a bonus as they work great together to keep things going and attending to my requests throughout the party. They kept the people dancing right up to the end of the last song of the evening. I was extremely satisfied with Brett Bribois handling my party, and will definite use him again for future events and recommend him highly to anyone looking for a professional DJ/MC for their special event (a great value for the services he provides).
