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. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

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.

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?

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.

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!!!!

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 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!

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. The lighting, sound quality and overall professionalism was outstanding. He provided the chairs and reception tables as well. We couldn’t have picked a better DJ. Thank you Bryant!

Tom Dj'ed my wedding and went above and beyond. Nothing was too big or too small for him to handle. His diverse knowledge of music is astonishing. Don't waste you money on other DJ's who try to nickle and dime you or up sale you on everything, Tom is the one stop shop and the way to go. He is very friendly and has a great personality. Thanks again Tom for making our special day memorable.

DJ Ken was great! From the moment we first spoke to him and the night of our wedding, Ken was amazing. Constant communication, so professional and he really made it clear that it was whatever we wanted our reception to be! He had all the right equipment.

Ken did an excellent job at our wedding!! We got married about a week ago in downtown St. Petersburg. Due to our venue, we had several audio needs and Ken was able to address all of them. When we were first looking for a DJ, the biggest requirement was a wireless setup for our outdoor ceremony. Nothing is worse than an outdoor ceremony where the guests can't hear the vows! Ken had a great wireless setup and even came out for our rehearsal to test the microphones and speakers. Ken taking the time to test the day before gave me so much peace of mind going into the wedding day. Ken created a seamless experience for the cocktail hour and reception as well. Our cocktail hour was held in an outdoor courtyard attached to the reception hall and Ken setup speakers in the courtyard so the music and announcements could be heard both inside and out. Ken handled our guests' music requests throughout the night and he even added some cool disco lighting once the lights were dimmed on the dance floor :) Overall, Ken went above and beyond in creating a great atmosphere for our wedding. Several guests complimented the music and we danced our hearts out! Thank you Ken!
