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.

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.

We were searching online for a DJ which was both reasonable and available for our wedding on February 14, 2015. We went with DJ Tony T for both our ceremony and reception because his music playlist was the same taste we had and his 50.00/hr rate was perfect for us. We communicated frequently with each other throughout the following weeks and we worked on the wedding playlist months beforehand together. At the reception, he did an AMAZING job keeping the music going and kept the crowd dancing. He played last minute song requests and was accommodating to everyone's needs. I submitted the list to Tony and he had most all of the songs played. It was nice to have people say that the DJ was great and they enjoyed his playlist. Overall, DJ Tony T was great to work with and made my wedding day more amazing that I could have every imagined. I would highly recommend DJ Tony he is very professional and affordable for any event, big or small. Book DJ Tony T today, you won't be disappointed.

We had a great time with DJ Tony T! He kept our high school Halloween party pumped up with nonstop beats. He is very pleasant and personable - he even wore a Halloween costume and fit right in! The kids loved him!

I hired Richie for my sister and her fiancé's surprise engagement party and it was definitely a great idea! He's a great DJ and even was able to set up karaoke for anyone to participate in, which was definitely the hit of the party! I highly recommend Richie's services for anyone looking to have great music and professionalism! Thanks again Richie!

For our big church youth dance, we had the best time ever!!! If it wasn’t for this DJ, the dance wouldn’t have been the same. He kept the crowd upbeat and having the best time of their lives. There wasn’t a time where people crowded to talk and not dance or go sit down because everyone just continued to dance. I would 100% recommended this man!! 👏

I hired CB Entertainment for a surprise college graduation party. He did an amazing job and kept the whole party dancing and having fun the whole night. He also included karaoke, which was a big hit with everyone at the party. I would highly recommend his services and will be referring anyone who needs DJ services for any occasion to him! Thanks again for a great and memorable night!
