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.

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?

On August 3rd 2019, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with a vow renewal. We hired DJ Intel for our event and he surpassed our expectations!!! He did a fantastic job interacting with our guests and we recieved many compliments of him! DJ Intel had our party hyped! My husband and I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a DJ and will use him again for future events! Thank you DJ Intel for making our night a memorable one!

My wife and I hired Black Door Productions to DJ our wedding and they helped keep the dance floor going all night. Tony was amazing to work with throughout the entire process and we would definitely recommend Tony and his team for any event that is looking for a DJ.

A fairly stereotypical dj playing music of his own choice rather than the meticulously prepared list of music that had been given to him. A frustrating experience for a not modest fee. Would not hire again

JMC has affordable rates and is very professional. I needed a Dj for my 5th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance and I'm so blessed that he responded so quickly to my inquiry. I actually had another Dj in mind, but after talking to JMC on the phone , I knew I had found the perfect fit. He took the time out to talk to me and get to know my organization and what we are about. I can't wait until the event because I know he will keep the party going with all his great ideas and the "party package" he provides. Thanks JMC for saving my event!!!

This was the second event that I have booked Orlando Wedding and Events DJ. Juno and Mimi were outstanding and made both occasions very memorable. The lighting and set up was top notch and the interaction they had with our guests really got our parties going. They handled the set up and take down effortlessly and were on time and reliable. I will be using them for all our future events. Thank you so much Juno and Mimi for two wonderful and fun evenings.

We as a league asked a lot of Dave from doing our team/player announcements to recognizing our quests and sponsors to helping advertise our concession and keeping the music going with requests and his own personal choices. After the event we polled our board of directors as well as parents and we had nothing but great reviews of how the DJ did and that we would invite him back for any other events we may have in the future. I was also asked by a number of people for his contact information so that they could contact them for their events. It was a great day and Dave did an excellent job!

Carlos was amazing!!! From the beginning he stressed communication, wanting to make sure that we had everything we wanted for my daughter's Sweet 16. He kept me on track!!! The day of our party, he actually came into the kitchen and asked how he could help me. He happily and graciously helped to set up the food for our buffet. Carlos took pictures and videotaped the event throughout the evening making sure to hashtag my daughter's event so that we could see it all from his point of view up on stage. His sound system is beautiful. The music was nice and loud but not overwhelming like at many other events we have been to. Carlos played a HUGE variety of music that literally had all of the generations of our party from 4-82 years old dancing together. He saw what a great time we were having and just kept playing. We were literally exhausted from dancing all night. Thank you Elite DJ services and specifically Carlos for helping to make this event something we will remember and cherish forever.
