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 Mack did an AHMAZING job as both the MC and DJ of our wedding reception. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t end up hiring the stereotypical wedding DJ. I wanted someone with awesome talent, great personality and high energy. DJ Mack was all of this and more. He listened to all of my visions and requests and the crowd loved him as did this bride! I will definitely hire him again for future events. Couldn’t recommend him more. Super punctual and responsive as well. Thumbtack just wouldn’t let me pick all 5.

Chris is truly an excellent DJ. He did an excellent job on the uplighting and the music. He did such a great job I could barely get off of the dancefloor. Everyone that attended danced the night away. His professionalism and personality really stand out. I can not believe how lucky we were to have him as our DJ. The price was very reasonable, especially for the quality of his work. Do not look any further for a DJ, he is above and beyond "excellent". Cant thank you enough Chris!!!

We hired DJ Intel for our evening wedding on 7/17/17. He kept in touch with us prior to our event, just to make sure that he had everything he needed to accommodate us. For our reception, he had the crowd up dancing ALL night!! He even came from behind his setup to dance with us!! Overall, DJ Intel plays great music, and keeps the party hype. If you want to have a great party atmosphere, DJ Intel if your guy!!!!

He kept everyone involved and played the style of music we wanted. He was the best DJ I’ve seen at a wedding, and my skeptical wife loved the whole night. We had a small wedding at he kept people on the dance floor all night. If we need another DJ in the Tampa area, there is no other choice!

DJ Tony T was awesome! He provided a night of fun for my family at my son's wedding reception. He took our very eclectic selection of music and turned it into a dance party everyone could enjoy! He was always prompt and professional with his responses. I could not have asked for a better time thanks to DJ Tony T.

When looking for our wedding DJ we looked at them all, super expensive, and we just did not want to spend so much on a service. Then we found all star, great price, and years of experience. Absolutely amazing service! Fantastic, he played all the songs we loved and then some. By far the best value with exceptional service. When looking for a DJ use Tom! Our guests are still raving about him!

DJ Kenwa did a fantastic job with our wedding! He was great with communication from the very start, quick to answer questions and offer suggestions. On the day of he kept us informed of what was going on when we arrived to our reception and helped keep us on schedule. He did a great job MCing, and the music was fluid. We saw no equipment issues and really felt like we were in good hands and could just enjoy our reception. I highly recommend him and think he offers an unbelievable value for the money. Thank you DJ Kenwa!

Brides and grooms everywhere; if you’re looking for a wonderful, professional DJ for your wedding, look no further! DJ Ken is the BEST! From the very first step of the process, he was very easy to work with. He was able to take all of our requests and build the perfect playlist that really set the tone for our wedding. He called us a week before the big day to make sure all of the details were ironed out and he was really on top of making sure that everything ran smoothly. We cannot thank Ken enough for his help in making our wedding night a night we will never forget!

DJ Intel was amazing from start to finish. The communication that we had before the wedding was easy and light. Not once did I feel overwhelmed. The music for our ceremony and reception was everything that I asked for, and more. He was very interactive, paid attention to the type of music that our guests liked, was sure to play any and all requests, and tailored the music to who was still there as the night progressed. The ONLY recommendation I would make is to check with the bride and groom before making any changes, regardless of who’s requesting them. All in all, DJ Intel was wonderful and I would highly recommend him for any event. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

DJ Ken was great. He played exactly the right mix of music for the crowd (120 ppl corporate holiday party at Don CeSar). He was very helpful to me as novice party planner. Very responsible and responsive. I plan to hire him every year for our holiday party.

Phil was amazing! We had a beech theme party and Phil deliver! He started with singing and playing steel drum and other instruments. Then he brought down the house transitioning to a DJ. 5 hours a great entertainment. It was a 50th birthday part celebration and thanks to Phil it was a success. Thanks again Phil!!

DJ Intel is still being praised a week after our wedding. He kept the party going until the last minute and gave us just what we wanted for our mixed age crowd! We are anxiously awaiting our wedding video thanks to him. We could tell he was engaging to our guests as well, i think everyone was on the dance floor at least once. Even with our last minute adjustments due to weather, DJ Intel kept our guests entertained. We partied all night long and he seemed to have a good time also. Thank you Antwon for helping us throw a bomb wedding! We will be recommending you to everyone we know!

DJ Kenwa was awesome! The music selection was perfect. Everyone talked about how much they danced and what a great time it was. Working with him was easy, I didn’t have to check up on him. He was just there and everything was perfect. If you want a low maintenance vendor who provides superior service this is the guy!

DJ Dickens was a delight! He did such a great job facilitating music at our ceremony on the beach, then cocktail hour on the lawn and finally in the reception. He took his time getting to know my now husband and I and it showed. He definitely knows how to bring the room together! Thank you for everything, Dickens.

Could not have asked for a better DJ for our event. Ricky was so accommodating of every song request, helped us keep things moving throughout the night and made things fun for the guest of honor, my mom on her 60th birthday. Everyone had a great time. I would definitely work with him again!

Bryant did an amazing job! He was attentive and listened to what we wanted and followed the itinerary perfectly. My friend was so impressed she wants to book him for her own wedding.

Neal was literally the most incredible DJ and absolutely saved our day. We lost power at the reception and he was able to still able to play and save the reception. If you were considering hiring Neal, we 1000% recommend him. He is able to handle any thing that gets thrown his way. We are incredibly thankful we hired him for our special day.
