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.

When I say we couldn’t have picked a better Dj. We got to our reception and he was set up and already playing tunes. Everyone enjoyed themselves and he did a wonderful job. He is definitely worth it. I would highly recommend him to Dj any event.

Brian was the best DJ we have ever used. He showed up early, offered great suggestions for the best way to organize the speakers and even paid attention to groups that weren't dancing so we could include everything in our event. A+ job.

Madley's Mobile DJ Solutions did the most amazing job. We received endless comments during and after the wedding. They coordinated the timeline of the night and worked to keep us on schedule. I would book them for every single event if I could! Thank you both so much again!!

DJ Rich provided me with a memorable musical experience down memory lane . I booked him for my fiftieth birthday with a 70s and 80s music theme and he didn’t disappoint , it was like he was reading my mind and played every song that kept the crowd entertained . I would definitely recommend him for any event and will be booking him again, great job!

I had a wonderful experience with Fly Records Entertainment. They were courteous, professional, punctual and entertaining. I kno Mrs. Mitchell even got out on dance floor with us at one point and also video recorded our event. I know I'm leaving out some things bu I don' t want to write a book...if you're looking for someone to be on time and provide great enertainment, Fly Records Entertainment is the DJ to hire.

Totally disappointed to be honest! Where should I begin I was totally up front with him in the beginning before hiring Tim that (my now) wife and I are a same sex couple and wanted someone that was going to be respectful comfortable and familiar with dealing with same sex marriages. Tim assured me on more than one occasion that he had not only had been a dj but also officiated many same sex marriages. We thought he was a good option so we decided to go with him! I totally regret it!! Tim arrived at my beach house on crutches with his wife/girlfriend! He was totally rude to my bridesmaids and staff I had working for my wedding. I spoke with him a number of times through phone conversations text messages and emails discussing music and other things. He mention in emails and phone conversations that he would like to be able to eat and drink for free...which was not a problem but never did he mention he would also be bringing a plus one (his girlfriend or wife) that would also be eating and drinking free of charge. He was also totally rude to my bridesmaids stepping on one of there dresses and telling them "can you move obviously you can see that I can not walk".Apparently he had injured his knee and had to have surgery which made for walking and setting up difficult for him to do. Which also never was commuated with me had I known that he was injured I would have mad arrangements for him to have help with his set up. I have sent him an email explaining the timeline of my wedding in detail with music (song titles and artist). when Tim announced my wife and myself (I am also a female) he was instructed to announce us as follows "please welcome the newly married couple the Rummel-Tassins" instead he announced us "Mr & Mrs. Rummel-Tassin" after he then decided to come and ask me questions about my detailed time line during my reception. He did not stick to my detailed timeline nor the music I wanted played at my wedding! It was an awful experience!
