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.

DJ Rane was everything. Arrived early, stayed late, with great repertoire of music. I recently graduated from Medical School and this party (more of a reception) had to be perfect! DJ Rane far exceeded my already high expectations from having read prior reviews. His services were inexpensive and he also recommended a photographer to us who was absolutely incredible. I give my highest recommendation and will definitely use him and Clean Vibes & Entertainment in any future Tallahassee event!

Lewis was an excellent DJ. His music was fantastic and appropriate for a 10 year old birthday party. He was very professional and on time. He engaged the kids and we all had a good time. I would book him again for any event.

Dj Rrane is amazing! We booked him for our wedding on 7/30/17 and we weren't disappointed! He kept our guests excited and on the dance floor all night! He also provided mics for the ceremony! He is very friendly and very reasonably priced! Book him now, you won't be disappointed!!

Corbett's media went above and beyond on our beautiful wedding day . accomodations were made so that we could have music on the beach for the actual wedding ceremony and then moved everything across the street into the clubhouse for the reception. Our playlist was perfect - could not have had a better dj or photogapher. I would highly reccomend Corbett's Media.

Our school has worked with Joe for years at our school events such as prom, teachers parties and fundraisers. Joe has proven to be professional, easy to work with, flexible and delivers what he was hired for. He is willing to work with any budget without cutting quality. We have worked with him in a Hawaiian shirt to a tuxedo! He is a great DJ.

My wife and I first met with DJ RRANE about 9 months before our wedding date just as a meet and greet. We had a few quotes from other DJs here on Thumbtack so we weren't sure who to go with. From the very first meeting we knew this was the man for the job. He is very organized and pays close attention to detail, we also liked how charismatic and easy to talk to he is. So we put down the deposit and began planning the wedding. Through out the next several months we met with him two more times to go over details. He was way more helpful than we could have asked for. He had a whole package of questions about what we wanted for music and at what times we wanted songs played. Seeing as my wife and I had never planned a wedding before we actually used this paperwork as a template for the entire evening, from ceremony through reception! Also as with any large event some details changed last minute and he was very flexible and accommodating. The day of our wedding, he arrived at the venue early and was set up and prepared with no fuss of hassle. The way our venue was arranged, he actually needed to be set up in two different locations! He did an amazing job with the music as the wedding party all walked down the aisle. As the reception began he announced all members of the wedding party by name as they entered the reception area. He acted not only as DJ but as host (at our request) making announcements for when dinner started, when the cake cutting occurred, when the bar was closing, and when the reception was ending. If you are looking for a skilled, charismatic, professional then I recommend that you look no further than DJ RRANE. He will do an amazing job making your event memorable and he will do so at a price that doesn't reflect the high quality of his abilities. I cannot express through this review how happy my wife and I are with DJ RRANE's performance throughout our wedding!!
