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 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?

We had an amazing time at my husband's birthday party. The music DJ Mancho played was amazing. He definitely read the crowd and had us all on the dance floor the entire time. Everyone commented in how great the music was. Hiring DJ Mancho was the best decision!

Luis could not have been better! We had a small family get together (15-20 people) and Luis made the evening flow so smoothly with his song selection. He was very in-tune with his audience and catered to exactly what we needed. If I could give 10 stars I would give it. We could not be happier with the choice we made to hire him to DJ our event. Thank u again DJ Luis! May blessings and continued success...

Dj Duss did an excellent job for our event. We booked him at the last minute and he showed up on time and entertained the crowd during the whole time! I look forward to working with him again in the future.

He didn’t make my guests happy. He was kinda rude when my guests requesting songs. He never played the music that was asked of him. My father ask him for a song and he literally told him if he didn’t provide the song He couldn’t help him, Really?! You’re the DJ. that’s the point of hiring a DJ. To help make the atmosphere fun, not to be rude and obnoxious . I would literally ask for my money back if I could. No personality, no interaction and he played the same songs over and over. Thank God my gussets make the best of the bad experience! Yup will not ever hire again. Very dissatisfied customer.

Booked with him 3 months in advance and even followed up with him prior and he confirmed he would be there at my 10 year olds bday party. Having a dj was her big gift. Spoke to him that day and even gave him my address. 30 min after the party started he didn’t show up and I went to call and didn’t even answer. My daughter was devastated. If you want someone to actually show up to your event don’t bother booking this guy. He is not reliable.
