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.

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?

I used DJ Intel for my daughter's sweet 16 party and it was the best decision. The party was a huge success because of this DJ. We couldn't get the kids off the dance floor, he was very interactive, professional, and kept the vibes going. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a good DJ.

We knew DJ Intel was perfect for our event after our first phone call! He was highly professional and easy to work with. From cocktail hour, to dinner, to the after party, DJ Intel kept the even classy and fun. Next time we need a DJ, he will be our first option. I will be recommending him to anyone that needs a DJ for any event in the Tampa Bay or Orlando area. 10/10 worth every penny.

Let me begin by saying that DJ Orio basically saved my xmas party. Due to some events I wasn't able to book a DJ until the week of my party. Not only did DJ Orio respond to me immediately but he was also extremely polite, understanding, professional and very punctual. His music selection was great and his timing for different genres was on point. I 110% co-sign for DJ Orio and will definitely be calling him again for events in the future.

Great DJ! We are in NW FL and needed a DJ for a corporate event in Tampa. We found him and based on reviews reached out. They were great from initial contact to post event. We were extremely pleased with his services and especially Pedro, the DJ. Very good communication and professional in every way. Would definitely recommend JMC and use them again.

DJ Kenwa was absolutely amazing. From the first call and conversation, I knew that he fully understood the feeling of our wedding. He was so professional and personable which is an asset in this industry. On our actual wedding day, I never left the dance floor! He seamlessly integrated our requests into the playlist for the night. There were guests dancing that claimed they never danced and I know that DJ Kenwa was one of the main reasons they found themselves on the dance floor. Do yourself a favor and book DJ Kenwa and you will have the time of your life!!
